Did/Do you have a dream university? A place you really wanted to study? Did you end up going there? (Or maybe it’s fictional?) Back when my family moved to North Carolina, I spent several hours on Duke University’s campus just looking around. There was some high school or freshman group there for an orientation and I decided to slip in and sit in the back. Just listening to the presentation made me want to go there. Not to mention that it felt like being at Hogwarts while walking around campus. . Back when my corona reading slump had me putting down books left and right, I had started reading “Unnatural Magic” by CM Waggoner. I specifically put this one down because I was really liking it and I didn’t want to ruin this book with my constantly distracted brain. Now that my slump is over, this is one of the few books that I’ve put back on my To Read list. I loved reading about Onna and her quick mind and kinda just loved that it was about trolls. haha. Magical schools are a favorite backdrop for me, so I’m looking forward to getting back into Onna’s story. Too bad we can’t all just go to magic schools, right? . Synopsis: Onna can write the parameters of a spell faster than any of the young men in her village school. But despite her incredible abilities, she’s denied a place at the nation’s premier arcane academy. Undaunted, she sails to the bustling city-state of Hexos, hoping to find a place at a university where they don’t think there’s anything untoward about providing a woman with a magical education. But as soon as Onna arrives, she’s drawn into the mysterious murder of four trolls. Tsira is a troll who never quite fit into her clan, despite being the leader’s daughter. She decides to strike out on her own and look for work in a human city, but on her way she stumbles upon the body of a half-dead human soldier in the snow. As she slowly nurses him back to health, an unlikely bond forms between them, one that is tested when an unknown mage makes an attempt on Tsira’s life. Soon, unbeknownst to each other, Onna and Tsira both begin devoting their considerable talents to finding out who is targeting trolls, before their homeland is torn apart…
