Kindle Unlimited, I found it too slow in places, to repetitive in others, and contradictory in other sections even a paragraph or page apart. Had to force myself to finish reading through, it was that...whatever. Liked the premise but the execution for me was missing...things. Still, promised friend would read all the books so 1-3, 4, and then what usually do is review the sets and individually. Was 3 1/2 which means have to decide to go lower or higher so went with erring on side of higher rating. Read these in the 3 pack set, of which this is #2.Book Two focuses on 2nd year, and more on whoever controls the Hundred Halls, controls the world. The Cabal searches for a powerful magic that will help them get control of the Hundred Halls, and if they aren't stopped, passing classes will be the least of anyone's worries.

Captivating storyThe characters and the world drew me in pulled me forward. Plenty of levels to this story and plenty more directions to go in future books. Overall a fun read.
Spectacular sequel to Trials of Magic! I think this second book of the Hundred Halls series is even better than the first, Trials of Magic, and that I thoroughly enjoyed. Some great new characters, yet more twists and turns, and a cracking lot of suspense and action. Intriguing world building, a great magic system, realistic, likeable and intelligent characters together with a sparkling plot made this a delight to read. Next book please! Highly recommended.
I loved the sequel to trials of magic. There were great twists in the plot, very inventive scenarios, and wonderful tie-ins between characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy.
Within the first 30% of the book a couple of the tropes that I’d been happy weren’t in the first book reared their heads. We got some mild angst and a super-hot guy interested in one of our girls. We also had some stupid decisions and some moments of why did it take you so long to do what needed to be done. I could also see the author introducing a love triangle in the future, though a second guy hasn’t been introduced yet.Overall I was super disappointed in the second book of the Hundred Halls series. Yes, there was more world building, but the main characters weren’t developed further and they were back to getting over the death of their parents. It wasn’t the focus but it was mentioned a lot, especially by Pi who I’m not sure Carpenter knows what to do with at all.Aurie is supposed to be the selfless smart one, but she makes several selfish stupid decisions. Pi is supposed to be smart and impetuous, and willing to take advantage of a situation to help herself, she mostly lived up to that but she also became a lone wolf and her storyline was pretty much over halfway through. There were definite pacing issues.Honestly, I’m probably not going to read the next book and I think I’m just going to avoid the genre completely. We’ll see.2/5
