PDF FREE Loves Labors Won Schooled in Magic #6 Ä Christopher G. Nuttall
This is another a very good book in the Schooled in Magic series although I have to say that I am somewhat concerned about the direction the stories in this universe seems to be going I uite ike this world and I would ike to continue to read about Emily s adventures in this magical world I do not mind the archaic way the world is governed or the outdated way "Women Sometimes Are Looked At It Is Part Of "sometimes are ooked at It is part of the of book and it is fiction after all Therefore I am not too happy reading about trends where magic appears to be replaced by science I
WAS EVEN LESS HAPPY WHEN DISSIDENTS WHERE INTRODUCED AND even Cant You Make Them Behave, King George? less happy when dissidents where introduced and made references to Karl Marx Please Mr Nuttall do not destroy thisovely magical worldNow when that is over with as I wrote above this is a very good book Emily embarks on yet another Leonardo da Vinci learning experience and we see some interesting developments of her magical ideas The base story for this book is not really about fighting magical monsters or necromancers but of social interactions family feuds and marriages which normally would put it outside of my comfort zone However once again Mr Nuttall manages to not only keep my interest throughout the entire book but also to make me reallyike itEmily s friends are present of course as well as a few enemies Of course Emily manages to make a few new ones along the way although some of the old ones might have turned from foe to friend The new enemies are than ikely to have uite an impact on future books thoughAs usual it is a rocky road for Emily and she stumbles than once usually due to her na ve attitude to a great many things I know that she is young but still sometimes I wonder what she is thinking She does manage to resolve her problems though although I am a bit irked by everyone telling her how stupid and reckless she has been and she just sucks it up I think she did a pretty good job in the end and I uite iked the display of force she madeThe Introduction to the Spiritist Philosophy last book ended in somewhat of a cliffhanger or ateast a very intriguing mystery involving a hooded man I had some hopes that this would be picked up on in this book but it appears that Mr Nuttall decided to suck on that piece of candy for a while Play Me, Im Yours longer as is the saying is in Sweden He also added another open thread at the end of this one I would say thatife is about to become even complicated for Emily in the futureAs usual I am Health at Every Size looking forward to the next book in the series I found myself jumping in on Christopher Nuttall satest Schooled in Magic ebook tale moving it to the top of the pile Emily was kidnaped from our world to the no named The Kings Witch (Frances Gorges Trilogy lands by a necromancerooking for a child of destiny Emily s mother was named Destiny and rescued by Void a powerful mage who sends her to Whitehall for training In the previous book she finished her third year She also with the help of the industrious family of a friend has been introducing Earth technology Polvere alla polvere like the printing press steam power and dynamite to this world and it is making massive changes She has neglected the Duchy of Cockatrice she was given because she saved the princess heir to theocal kingdom and unfortunately agreed to host the Magical Faire this year eaving her steward in charge He invited all the magical families including Ashworth and Ashfall families who have been feuding for generations and who are never invited to the same event It s a case of Love s Labor s Won ebook from Twilight Times Books when the heir of one family falls for the heir of the other Mr Nuttall is very aware of Romeo and Juliet so that a far better result occurs The stage is set for the fourth year in which she has to work on a project with another student I don t know where this mixture of Connecticut Yankee and Harry Potter Is going but I ve been enjoying the ride and glad that each book has a solid endingReview printed by Philadelphia Weekly Press I m settling into my acceptance of what these books are uick enjoyable reads with a main character who is brilliant but simultaneously very stupid I am frustrated yet entertained and enjoying myself The part that I find most aggravating is the focus on the introduction of dangerous new technologies something everyone in the st.

Frustrating For Me As A Reader Ifor me as a reader I ike she s not really growing as a person Also I get a tell vibe not a show vibe from her emotionsThat being said for the whole series I really Chicken Soup for the Soul loved this book s plotine but I feel Misbehaving like the books are being published faster than I can read them which is annoying for obvious reasonsEdit I m rereading this book because of Caleb whom I reallyike Love s Labour s WonThis is very good in the content of the storyline Emily continues with trials and tribulations as she gets older and aware of her duties and magical power The next installment should be totally mind shattering I can t wait Drinking game idea Take a drink every time the author says Emily sighed inwardly Emily groaned inwardly Emily frowned inwardly Just kidding don t do that you will be dead by chapter three I wanted to enjoy this series The magic system is good enough it is very clear how it works and what its Blooming Red limitations are unlike other magical series where it is very vague The plot is semi interesting and I m intrigued to know what happens next for the characters Unfortunately I don t think I can get past the book s repetitive writing I understand a writing style which is clear and free of flowery descriptions especially when there is a difficult plot to follow however the plot isn t all the complicated interesting but certainly not complicated The author has a serious case of tell not show and I found myself constantly groaning inwardly at his basic and boring descriptions I also struggle toike Emily as a person She showed up in this world not too Irrevocable Trust (Irreparable, long ago and is enforcing her beliefs on a whole world and expecting them to keep up She is taking ideas from Earth and I guess passing them off as her own Her reasoning is that she is morally right and we have to hear it over and over again in repetitive conversations Also why is everything her fault I wanted to give this book 2 stars however I have gotten this far in it because Iiked the story It has some good aspects but there are better things to rea.

terrible idea Not just the guns cannons and explosives but also theidea Not just the guns cannons and explosives but also the spell a profoundly rotten idea in terms of introducing ideas to an already dangerous world Emily s continued infantile blundering is so frustrating to sit behind and try to watch the story unfold At The Penguin History of Early India least this book goes to the trouble of pointing it out at the end and chiding her for her ignorance I just hope she will LISTEN In the past she has not grown up from her experiences even when they create disastrous conseuencesThe intermittent references to pop culture are infreuent though still eye roll inducing Perhaps I would prefer a straight up fantasy but these are good enough that I can t stop reading them All my criticisms withstanding Iove the world building enough to keep coming back The spectacular set pieces at the end are worth coming back for generally This one was a good show of power with a weird flop conclusion The possibility of that outcome was so well addressed and talked over it was kind of a Exploring with Frémont let down when it just did No twist no third choice just as predicted I will still come back and read the next one It s already on my Kindle the weakest so farNothing much happens until the end of the book Emily spends aot of time getting pushed around by almost everyone else and there s this Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out looming sense that things could go terribly wrong but they don t really ateast not until the very end So Beauty and the Beast (Demon Tales, lots of potential drama but not many real fireworks set offToo many of the books in this series center on Emily s ignorance and the poor decisions she makes out of it Everyone who is older andor has authority over her feels uite happy to point out her flaws and tell her you re arrogant and ignorant and you re going to get people hurt and yet none of these people even those who do care about Emily have ever taken the time to talk to her about her world or to discover what sorts of things she might not knowhave trouble understandingnot believe Lady Barb is the worst offender She knows that Emily never had anyone she could rely on no mother or father worthy of the name and Lady Barb knows why Emily is ignorantand yet Lady Barb is constantly saying scathing things about Emily s decisions threatening to punish her for them and now is complaining that Emily actsike a child in a woman s body Haven t Lady Barb and the Grandmaster figured out yet that Emily needs some remedial education and training in the history customs and s of her new society Many books ago the Grandmaster told Emily that Lady Barb would talk to Emily find out what she was missing or ignorant of and fill in the blanks Obviously Lady Barb didn t do it or didn t do it enough and Emily is still paying the price Worse Emily is being encouraged to blame herself for all her deficiencies and she ricochets between resentment of other people s authority grasping at straws during crises and then blaming herself for making poor choices all without any real sense of what else she could have done instead or getting any useful feedback from those people who claim to care for her None of Emily s reactions will The Secret Life of Callie McGuire lead her to develop the self confidence and ability to trust herself and others that Emily desperately needs in order to fulfill herself discipline her powers and ameliorate the conseuences of her actionsLady Barb spent months helping Emily practice pocket dimension and warding spells because she knows Emily needs to engage her magic responsibly yet Barb seems to feel that Emily should just know how to be a baroness and how to carry out heregal political and social obligations Lady Barb acts ike Emily just should be able to identify all the things that she doesn t know and no one else has thought to tell her and feels it s Emily s fault if she doesn t know to ask even It s unreasonable of doesn t know to ask even It s unreasonable of Barb to have done nothing to helpforce Emily to come to grips with her responsibilities as a baroness If the issue were her magic Lady Barb wouldn t hesitate to make Emily practice and to punish her if she didn t yet when the problem is her politicalsocial power Lady Barb feels entitled to stand back watch her fail and scold her for.
