To find out one must continue the series with book 2 Unruly Magic which I intend to do as the story was just getting to the good part when cahfer ended! I was instantly in love with a few of characters and really hope to see them again in the next book.

What I absolutely disliked is the large number of incorrect words, missing words and frustrating grammar. The reasons behind such things elude Stella, yet she can’t deny the fact that she has always been different.
