She survived a trial year at the Academy, but that was just the easy part... Now sixteen-year-old Ryiah is an apprentice of Combat, her school's most notorious faction of magic. When she finishes she will be a mage, but in order to do so she has to survive four years with a training master she hates and her old nemesis, Priscilla. To make matters worse the unwanted attraction Ry feels for her sometimes-friend-sometimes-rival Prince Darren is at an all time high?even though he is betrothed to the very girl she can't stand. Really, the only bright spot to Ryiah's new life is the time she spends with her friends, including an older apprentice named Ian, who she finds herself thinking about quite often. Just when things start to get comfortable they take a turn for the worse. An apprentice is killed in a rebel attack and several mages end up dead. Unwittingly, the apprentices find themselves in the midst of a budding unrest between Jerar and its northern neighbor, Caltoth. For Ryiah the impending conflict means many things, but as her apprenticeship draws to a close she finds her biggest problem at home. Unfortunately for her, Darren's not going anywhere.

I'm still reeling from the fact that we went through four years of schooling in as many pages as it took to go through one in the previous book.

As such, we mostly moved through seasonal highlights of each year where something big would happen followed by multi-month jump with another big moment happening next. And oh lordy, those moments were emotional, messy and surprisingly, very romance heavy. From the few reviews I've read of hers, I never considered Carter as a huge romance fan but this book is HEA-VY in the romance.

It's very fast-paced and seemingly full of stuff, but it's all very superficial and I wouldn't recommended looking too deep into it.
