Summary

After completing her first year of learning magic at Whitehall School, Emily accepts an invitation from Princess Alassa to accompany her on her progress back to her home country of Zangaria, where the princess may meet her future husband. Alassa, who was a spoiled brat before she met Emily, wants to show off her friend - and impress potential suitors.
For Emily, it is a chance to relax and explore a world very different to Earth, meet new people and come to terms with her reputation in the Nameless World. After her defeat of Shadye, everyone wants to know her, to talk with her, to kill her or to marry her. For Emily, hardly a social butterfly, the experience is disconcerting. She was never seriously courted before, not on Earth.
And yet, as she sees more of the countries surrounding Whitehall, she feels more and more out of place. The locals come from a very different culture, one that is often strange and horrifying to her eyes. Even her friends seem different people in their homes.
But dark forces are at work, plotting to capture the princess, take power in Zangaria, and undo all of Emily's work. As all hell breaks loose, Emily may be all that stands between Zangaria and a return to the dark ages of brute force that threatened to lay the kingdom low once before. And if she fails, her friends will be just the first victims of a war that will rip the Allied Lands apart.

Author needs to learn write

As with book 1 this is a first person story written in 3rd person, which makes Emily's ramblings annoying. Emily's musings are constantly running back on themselves.

And at the beginning she says that the Princess is older than her yet says she's 17, which is Emily's age. Although, I thought that Emily was younger than that as I don't think the first book ever mentioned age.

The whole world building around marriage as nothing more than a mating ritual is off putting and even Emily never mentions marriage for love. Emily should have said to Jade that he was shite at trying to woo a girl and had to work for it with dates and all that crap and dating before he even considered asking her anything like it.

And the final boss had no actual foreshadowing. They just jumped out of nowhere and turned out to be crazy and stupid. At least leave clues to the big bad rather than just picking someone at random.

I like the overall plots, but too much of the story is Emily's thought, and re-thoughts about the same things constantly. It's just wasteful padding. I can tell that a lot of it is added after the story has been finished to pad it out as no one should ramble a 3rd person story between a conversation as that can make the reader forget what she's answering after a long winded mind-ramble.

Also, Emily is very anti-male. That was made clear in book 1. And even mentioned in this book. I would have expected some lesbian tendancies if she was to think about a lover.

Though, one of the worst things are some of the names, such as Jade? For a boy?

And the constant reminders of her previous adventure was completely unnecessary. And mocking Mary-Sues when Emily should be number 1 of Forbes top 10 list of Mary-Sues, and trying to pretend she's not.

Also, everything just moved much too fast. All her inventions and the fall of guilds. But I can overlook that.

I'm still interested. I don't mind a Mary-Sue with a good story when it's cheap, even when so full of filler. And this book was only £2.99 with the £0.99 Kindle book and book 3 is only £2.99 with the £1.49 Kindle book, so cheaper than a Credit.
