In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret…
For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken. Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems. When Ivy’s magic––and her life––is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.
This is a really whimsical, magical story following a young girl who finds out she is magical and goes to a magical school. Ivy Lovely is a very inquisitive young girl who wants answers to all the questions she has and will do anything to get those answers.
Throughout this story there is a dark ominous feel as strange things happen and danger is mounting which created some great tension and made me want to keep reading and figure out what the heck is going on.
The magic system in this story is very unique and interesting but also very easy to wrap you head around it. As I was reading this book I felt very comforted and it reminded me of when I read the Harry Potter series. Some things that did happen in this book I did feel like they were very reminiscent and similar to Harry Potter which I really enjoyed.
