Rescued in the nick of time by an enigmatic sorcerer, she discovers that she possesses magical powers and must go to Whitehall School to learn how to master them. There, she learns the locals believe that she is a "Child of Destiny," someone whose choices might save or damn their world ... a title that earns her both friends and enemies. A stranger in a very strange land, she may never fit into her new world.
...and the necromancer is still hunting her. If Emily can't stop him, he might bring about the end of days.

Schooled in magic
At first this book seems adorable. Strong female character who begins to change the world, wether they want her to or not. Constant references to dr who and HArry Potter books. Author loves history and the character, Emily, seems to have a doctorate in earth history. However I became tired of the man bashing. I have read two of the books and the author seems to be leading down the path of typical young adult authors these days. Homosexuality is introduced early and constantly discussed throughout the book. Author states that men believe Woman are good for nothing but marriage and babies and Royal men are useless. The main character is uncomfortable being around boys who might look at her chest. I checked out the last book and it brings in girls crushes on other girls. I am not sure what happens in the middle. But not every reader wants to read about the world being better off without happy man woman relations. It’s just getting old. This could have been interesting.
