This book never really grabbed my attention. I found Max to be an unworthy protagonist, not only did he deceive his father but he had quite a temper and was extremely immature and irritating. However, I did like Max's room mate, David. He was by far a much more interesting and likable character. Will not bother with any more books in this series. ( )

Apesar das eventuais parecenças a Harry Potter, devido ao colégio de Rowan, tudo o resto é inovador e muitíssimo interessante.
A história acompanha um rapaz, Max, que descobre que consegue ver coisas que aparentemente parecem não existir, mas que estão ligadas à utilização das energias humanas. Ele é então recrutado por uma escola após realizar um conjunto de testes para avaliar o seu potencial.
A entrada na escola de Rowan tem muitas semelhanças com o universo Harry Potter, com o sniffing ritual pela Bruxa de serviço à cozinha e a criação dos quartos (das mais interessantes ideias que já li até hoje).
Na escola ele confronta-se com desaparecimentos de crianças potenciais que estão ligadas a uma luta antiga entre o bem e o mal e a uma figura central maléfica, chamada Astaroth, que os seus súbditos tentam trazer à vida.
Vale muito a pena ler, em especial para quem gostou do universo Harry Potter ( )

An inventive, often surprisingly dark take on the "Magic Boarding School" genre. The plot was somewhat muddy and lacked a strong through-line, and suffered from a generic bully and a shadowy villain revealed too late in the book. Still, I enjoyed it enough to seek out the sequels. ( )
