Synopsis: Volinette Terris has everything most girls could want: a famous family, plenty of money, and a career as a talented musician. No one would expect her to risk losing it all to try and become a mage, but when the School of Sorcery opens for the Trial of Admission, that’s exactly what she does.
If only she’d known that winning a place in the Academy of Arcane Arts and Sciences would be the least of her problems. Now she finds herself accused of murder, tormented by her fellow students, and implicated in the theft of a mystical artifact that could bring about the end of the world.
And that’s just the first semester!
Review: Volinette Terris comes from a very famous family of musicians, but music isn’t where her heart lies. She wants to become a mage against her family’s wishes. When the Solendrea School of Sorcery offers the Trial of Admission, Volinette is desperate to win a spot. When she not only survives the trial, but surpasses the instructors’ wildest imagings, she doesn’t make any friends. Her only friend there is someone she knew already, Baris. Janessa accuses Volinette of murdering her sister during the trial and as such, does her best to torment and humiliate Volinette at every turn. When a mystical artifact is stolen, the evidence points to Volinette, but she knows she’s innocent…now to prove it. VOLINETTE’S SONG is a standalone novel, perfect for anyone who has never read anything else in the Magic of Solendrea series. This book is definitely appropriate for all ages who enjoy YA novels and written in a way which will draw you in to Volinette’s world easily. Featuring well-rounded characters and a believable world, VOLINETTE’S SONG will capture your imagination.
