Shadow Grail Series - Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill
While I was on vacation last week I had time to visit a bookstore and basically made a draft of a text on my cell phone of books that I want to check out and read more on. I came across a series that caught my eye and I have not seen too many people talking about it online. The series is called The Shadow Grail Series by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edgehill. I am surprised that I have not heard more about Mercedes Lackey’s first YA book series.
Spirit White has survived from a deadly car crash that has killed her mother and father and her sister. She has been discovered by a school with special talents, called magic. A couple of months after staying, people begin to disappear; some vanish to be never seen again, so Spirit and her new friends begin the investigation. But will they find out the truth of what is going on? Or will Spirit and her friends suffer a terrible fate from which they don't know about yet? (Taken from Good Reads)
Spirit and her friends Burke, Loch, Muirin, and Addie have managed to defeat the evil force that has been killing students at Oakhurst Academy for the past forty years—or so they think. When a series of magical attacks disrupts the school, Doctor Ambrosius calls upon alumnus Mark Rider to secure the campus—and start training the students for war. The only student without magic, Spirit doesn’t trust Mark or his methods. She knows that Oakhurst isn’t safe. And if Spirit and her friends want to live long enough to graduate, they have to find out what is really going on—before it’s too late. (Taken from Good Reads)
I know that the whole Camelot/Reincarnation etc has been done before (Avalon High) but this is definitely a series that I wanted to check out. These are books that after seeing the covers and reading the back that I want to check out. I have not read any of the reviews yet, but the first one isn’t getting too good of reviews. It looks like the second one is getting a lot better reviews.
