From the author of the acclaimed Jinx trilogy comes a spellbinding fantasy, perfect for fans of the School for Good and Evil series, about a young heroine fighting to save a world that would dare to tame her.

Chantel would much rather focus on her magic than on curtsying, which is why she often finds herself in trouble at Miss Ellicott’s School for Magical Maidens. But when Miss Ellicott mysteriously disappears along with all the other sorceresses in the city, Chantel’s behavior becomes the least of her problems.

Without any magic protecting the city, it is up to Chantel and her friends to save the Kingdom. On a dangerous mission, Chantel will discover a crossbow-wielding boy, a dragon, and a new, fiery magic that burns inside her—but can she find the sorceresses and transform Lightning Pass into the city it was meant to be?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Harry Potter fans! I love this book! If you are looking for a book that brings you back into a magical the world of Harry Potter with a chosen one predicted to save us all, an orphan family that joins together like Miss Peregrine's Home and a strong female character to take you on a adventure that teaches you to not hide, but to be proud of who you are and being the best that you can be. I would recommend this to anyone that loved the Harry Potter series. #indigoemployee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing story for young readers I absolutely adored this story. The theme presented throughout is “think bigger”. Blackwood presents readers with a strong female lead, Chantel, who (in the beginning) does her best to fit into the mold of an ideal young girl within her society (one who is polite, doesn’t speak, and follows orders). Eventually, Chantel discovers that this mold was created to benefit those in power by controlling her potential. She then rebels by “thinking bigger”. She chooses to work towards helping her kingdom and eventually saves her people. This heroism is not achieved through manners and polite words, but rather is achieved through bravery and strength. Warning: while suitable for young readers there is a lot of death presented throughout (of secondary characters). Perfect for fans of Matilda by Roald Dahl and Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for JINX: “Flowing dialogue, easy interactions between the characters, a mixed Diana Wynne Jones/Lloyd Alexander vibe, and a setting both familiar and original make the novel immediately inviting and compelling.”
