Ren Monroe is a scholarship student at Balmerick, the college of magic. Almost everyone uses magic, but Ren specializes in creating new spells. She wants to find a position with one of the five founding families when she soon finishes her graduate studies. She is on her way home to the Lower Quarter with her best friend Timmons. The transportation spell goes awry, and they, with their two “friends of circumstance” who regularly use the transportation portal, and two interlopers - sons from the five families who were stuck using that station that day - are moved deep into the Dires, a dangerous forested area.

I want to know more about the world. I was interested in the characters. I enjoyed the book. I would read the next book in the series, but I don’t know if I would buy it. I think it is unlikely I would reread it.

Interesting story, and I liked the main characters and the message. But Reintgen really (really!) needs a good editor to cut some of the uber-flowery paragraphs that go on and on.

My son lives out but Reintgen's tendency to write pages of dramatic flowery tween prose turns me off from the actual exciting story

The story is interesting and well developed; the writer's propensity to long internal monologues for the main character (Emmett) gets a bit tiresome though. Could have used one more editor's pass of the pen. (My 12 yr old loves it though)
