I got around 20% through Ward of the FBI and deleted it. It's like the author didn't even bother to do any research about the universe she's writting in. Which is strange since the issues in this book aren't in Alison's book. Since when do magic users HAVE to have wands to do magic?
My main complaint about this book is that it seems like it's basically just a cheap knock-off of the Harry Potter books.
You've got the special magic user that didn't know they had magic.
You've got the snobby elitist pricks.
You've got the kind groundskeeper.
You've got everyone using wands, which are semi-special to each person.
You've got a magic school full of dangerous stuff.
Hell, you've even got a version of the Weasley's, right down to the oldest kid having an arguement with his mother.
A secondary issue is one that others have already mentioned: the POV switches between characters rather randomly and without any warning. It's confusing and I had to go back several pages to try to figure out what the hell was going on. Switching between characters is fine when it's done properly. It wasn't here. There wasn't even a break between paragraphs.
So yeah, this just reads as a sad Potter rip-off that suddenly switches between characters. I cannot recomend it to anyone.
Raine comes from a line of public servants, so we know her heart is in the right place. But there are challenges facing any teenager at boarding school. All the best intentions to grow up and be an FBI Agent can get a bit battered by high school, magic boarding school, high school at that.
I cannot wait for the next volume of Raine and Evie's antics...
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!
