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.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. This book surprised me, usually some magical worlds are hard for me to follow and become invested in, but I loved this magical world! Occasionally I was reminded of Harry Potter, but only because Ivy was away at a magical school. This story is still very unique and original.
Sixteen year old Ivy Lovely has been hidden away leading a life that doesn’t suit her. But once she loses her job and crosses the border she starts to uncover her truth and her family history bits at a time. This magical system is so much fun! The story is full of whimsical creatures, secrets and adventure! I will definitely read the next in the series!
