    It was all over the place and good for light reading but I felt it could use more centralized focus. The universe is interesting, I just want more. It could easily be broken into five books.

    Reads like Harry Potter book 1 with more emphasis on the dining hall, shops, library and quidditch than action. Judith Berens is the name used whenever Michael Anderle and Martha Carr collaborate on a book. Tad surprising as Michael’s KU books are all action and snark and this is far from it. Overall enjoyable if you don’t mind the derivative nature and leisurely pace.

    Notes: Initially, I thought this was a YA series but I think it would fit for middle school to high school range. It's fairly simple, with good characters and lots of feel good social interactions mixed into the zip of magic.

    With the transphobia of JKR, you might be searching for a new series. Imagine if Hermione Granger was American and not at all confident in her magical abilities and you have the protagonist Raine. The love of learning, reading and the library is the same, but Raine is not an insufferable know-it-all lol. I don’t particularly care for the copaganda element of Raine wanting to be an FBI agent. For this to be set in the US, it is way too w h i t e! And, it was weird that the kitsune is white becaus With the transphobia of JKR, you might be searching for a new series.

This new part 2 of the school is Raine Cambell and only took me 1 book not usual 3-4 to decide was never going to be worth my time. This story went all over the place, hinted at things that never actually talked about in any detail and/or again {Darvu and other matters} and was only not crushing disappointment becuase had already seen the part 1 with Alison going downhill faster than a brakeless car headed down a steep incline with no hope of stopping unless it crashed, which it did. Once again the blurb makes no actual sense in regards to the actual storyline that played out. Heroes aren’t born; they’re made. But so are villains.

Read it, give it a try, and don't forget to read the authors notes. She strikes a chord here, about the joy and strength in challenging self, but acknowledging community, even with individual failings, can bring great (or greater)/joy to life.

    Fascinating with hints of intrigue I possess a certain love/hate relationship with cliffhangers. Especially in novels since oftentimes it could be months before you’re able to continue the characters’ journey. That’s the hate part speaking. But I do so love the fact that their journey will continue. That I will once again be able to join them in their travails and triumphs. Be warned, this book definitely is a cliffhanger.

So I suggest, as I did, you have book ll within arms reach so you may continue the shared journey. For in truth, isn’t that why we read anyway?

    definitely YA, perhaps very YA Let me begin with praise for the book. The book was not badly written. It showed imagination and good use of fantasy tropes without being tired. If this book had not been so unbelievably YA, I might have enjoyed it more. I think the age and maturity of the characters could have been increased, generating more story line. I cannot say what the author intends so this could be by design. The other thing is had I not known the story was about Reign, I might have wondere definitely YA, perhaps very YA Let me begin with praise for the book. The book was not badly written.

The other thing is had I not known the story was about Reign, I might have wondered. The book is a narrative. And no character is too small to be immersed in their feelings and experiences. It would be different if it was part of storyline growth but much of the time it felt like filler

    Magical, fun and enjoyable adventure I enjoyed the adventure. The characters are likeable and interesting. The movie nights were quite enjoyable. The different food adventures at the school and at the other world were a lot of fun. Too funny having all of his food taste like mud seemed pretty harsh for a prank not meant to harm even if it could. Guess they need to be mindful of the dangers of magic. One would think that would be taught from the get go. I found the teaching of dark magic to be int Magical, fun and enjoyable adventure I enjoyed the adventure.

The part I would like to have seen finished was who poisoned the professor. Definitely a good read.

    Raine is a young girl that ends up in the School of Necessary Magic. The school has a bit of a trouble background having relatively recently been attacked by dark magic witches and wizards. It's not long before she is attacked by some regular thugs. Then there's this underground city that no freshmen are supposed to go to so, of course, she and her friends intend to go there. It's a fascinating place with troubles of its own. Then there's the problem of a professor who has been poisoned along wi Raine is a young girl that ends up in the School of Necessary Magic.

    Ward of the FBI A fitting addition to the excellent School of Necessary Magic series. Raine is a great new character who brings her FBI heritage and goal with her newly discovered magic to my favorite academy. She is another amazing part of the school, following our Drow bounty hunter, Alison. Many other interesting characters join her in this first of what looks to be another thrilling series. Well done, Judith (Martha). 👍👏

    A new freshman class! The School of Necessary Magic is back in session, with a new freshman class and more adventures! This fast-paced read left me wanting to see what Raine and her new friends Evie, Sara, Cameron, Phillip, William, and Adrien find themselves in the midst of next. Also, will Mara and Xander follow through with the opportunity they’ve been given? Next book, please!

    School was never like this! A new freshman class at the School of Necessary Magic starts off with a bang: snippy roommates, outcasts and orphans form a cast of characters with lots of potential. The trouble the group of main protagonists gets into reminds me of Harry and his gang at Hogwarts, solving problems that they really should have taken to the teachers - but where’s the fun in that? Looking forward to more adventures!

    Looking forward This is a great story and reminds me of Vampire academy. The characters were so enthralling that I couldn't put the book down. Raine is a orphan who just experienced her first bout of magic. She starts a magic school and develops friendships that help her with her magic. I liked how open she was to everyone and her sense of justice. This is definitely YA and has a PG vibe to it. I am curious about what happens next and how this series will develop.

    3 1/2 stars. It wasn’t a bad story. I actually enjoyed parts of it. But it wasn’t like I expected any of The School of Necessary Magic books to be. When the main character spends so much time in the library, it’s understandable why but it felt like we were all in the library on a sunny Tuesday afternoon just wanting to be out in the sunshine. The writers are very talented and I believe that this book was just a little less than their talent.

    Another fantastic series starter WOW!! The Oriceran Universe is expanding with this great new series. Absolutely love the introduction of Raine who wasn’t aware she was a witch. We see her struggle with her magic, make new friends and overcome adversity to come out on top. Can’t wait to see how she grows in future books.

    Necessary magic I have never read a book of magic that was not gory. I enjoyed reading this book and will start on the the second one tomorrow after I get some house work done. If the next book is as good as this one, I better get something's done or it want get done. Once I start a book I cannot seem to put it down.

    Great start A new year at the school of necessary magic, starting from the year after Alison, Luke, Izzy etc left following a new character Raine as she begins her foray into the magical world. Read the other series first it sets the scene. I’m hoping that Dorvu becomes friends with the new group as he’s feeling lonely with Alison and Izzy!

    It's good but no more than that. I know it's for middle school but still the multiple points of view is not doing the book any favours, it should be all about the main character Raine not all of her friends. The action part is played down and you'll miss if you don't pay enough attention. I was hoping to read a book along the lines of Harry potter but this doesn't come close.

    Good Read! I’m usually a dystopian YA fan; but I strayed a bit and truly enjoyed the book. A great group of friends coming together. I like how each of the friends exemplify a different main trait and together their team comes out on top. I got this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.

    Raine and friends We meet Raine, and then new and old,students at the school. There’s a whole new plot line, and new problems being caused: but who is behind them? We see seeds sown, hints dropped, but no definite clues yet. What’s going to happen in the new year? Bring on Orphan Witch!
