Review: The School for Good and Evil #2: "A World Without Princes" by Soman Chainani

August 30, 2016

 

Title: A World Without Princes

 

Author: Soman Chainani

 

Page Count: 433

 

Summary:

In the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are home, living out their Ever After. But life isn't quite the fairy tale they expected.

When Agatha secretly wishes she'd chosen a different happy ending, she reopens the gates to the School for Good and Evil. But the world she and Sophie once knew has changed.

Witches and princesses, warlocks and princes are no longer enemies. New bonds are forming; old bonds are being shattered. But underneath this uneasy arrangement, a war is brewing and a dangerous enemy rises. As Agatha and Sophie battle to restore peace, an unexpected threat could destroy everything, and everyone, they love-and this time, it comes from within.

Soman Chainani has created a spectacular world that Newberry Honor-winning author Ann M. Martin calls "a fairy tale like no other complete with romance, magic, and humor that will keep you turning pages until the end."

 

Reviews:

"Wow. From the very first sentence, you know you're entering a thrilling world of strange fantasy. A wild and dangerous fairy-tale ride. I loved this book." - R.L.STINE, author of the bestselling Goosebumps

 

"A whip-smart debut, guaranteed to make any girl think twice about wanting to be a princess. If I could bewitch you all to read it, I would. Grade: A." - Entertainment Weekly

 

"Invention in overdrive, The School for Good and Evil is a comedic education by a writer primed to shoot to the head of the class." -GREGORY MAGUIRE, author of the bestselling Wicked

 

"An imaginative way to leave black-and-white thinking behind." -Publishers Weekly

 

"It is not often that someone comes along who can reinvent fairy tales and reclaim their magic. Soman Chainani takes the racing energy of Roald Dahl's language and combines it with the existential intensity of J.K. Rowling's plots to create his own universe. The School for Good and Evil uses the sorcery of words and the poetry of friendship to startle, enchant, and keep us turning its pages." - MARIA TATAR, Loch Professor, Harvard University, and editor of The Classic Fairy Tales

 

"A funny, frightening, and fully satisfying novel that explores the meaning of true love and the vast gray area between good and evil." - San Francisco Chronicle

Our Review: 

Oh my gosh! Soman Chainani, how do you do it?! This book is quite possibly the best book I've ever read, and all of you're books are so fully satisfying, along with amazing plot twists that leave me staring, gaping at the book like I was crazy. This book was no different, and the magnificent writing combined with the turmoil of the plot twists, just combined perfectly together!

 

The Bottom Line: I expected awesomeness, and I wasn't dissappointed.
