"The plot is gripping and well thought out, and one of the key 'mysteries' from the first book is answered - and in a way I didn't expect. It's always good when an author embarks on a series but provides some answers as well as just generating more questions. And when the answers are satisfying ones."
Apparently, school is supposed to be the best time of your life. Obviously whoever said that has never tried to rescue a ghost and study for midterms.
But life at the Academy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Being the only fairy is bad enough, but then the rumours of a ghost spread, setting everybody on edge. And when people are afraid, it’s never a good time to be the odd one out.
Bea is determined to keep her head down and not, absolutely not, draw attention to herself. That is, until she comes face to face with the so-called ghost. Bea realises that things at the Academy are a lot more complicated than they first appear - and that's before an unwelcome face turns up begging a favour...
Exactly how far will Bea go to do the right thing - and is she prepared to finally meet the fearsome, three-headed Beast to do it?
"I literally couldn't put it down - fantastic!"
