DarkSkull Hall by Lisa Cassidy

Yet another young adult heads off to magic school, unaware dark family secrets are going to catch up with her.

On first sight, the prospect of another magic school story (this time, set in epic-fantasy-land) didn’t fill me with joy, but this is actually pretty good. It doesn’t try to be Harry Potter, the plot chugs along nicely with some interesting mystery and without too much relationship drama, and the main character has human frailties without being an annoying whiny adolescent.

The writing is decent, a bit description-heavy in parts, but very readable throughout and well edited.

This is clearly the start of a series, but it reads reasonably well as a standalone book.
