It’s a weird place – rich prep school in the middle of nowhere, Montana. And Spirit doesn’t seem to have any magic. But, she does make friends, and all seems ok, until a few students disappear. Spirit and her friends investigate, and come to interesting conclusions about the school.
This is very much a set up book – the end game of this story is clearly only the beginning. There’s definitely a lot of things these kids aren’t being told, and it sure looks to me like a lot of parents are dying when they don’t need to – I’m actually surprised no one talked about it in this book, but I’m sure it’ll come up again later.
My favorite part, and I don’t think I’m being too spoilery here – the Wild Hunt as zombie bicycle/ATV/assorted other wrecked vehicle gang. Loved that.
I’m interested to see where this goes. It’s clearly laying some Authurian groundwork, but is still open to nearly endless potential.
