In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret...

For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken. Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems. When Ivy’s magic—and her life—is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.


This novel is kinda like a Harry Potter retelling. Ivy Lovely is living a miserable life until she discovers she's a witch. She then sets off for Halls of Ivy, the prestigious school for witches. But Ivy isn't normal, her blood is royal & now the Dark Queen seeks her blood & crown. Can she beat the Queen?
The plot of the novel resembles alot to Harry Potter. I enjoyed it but it becomes annoying too. The story was pretty predictable as everything is really like Harry Potter. The concept of human world & magic world was kinda confusing. The story was pretty magical but it was really fast paced and kinda felt disordered. I liked the characters & Ivy was pretty amazing. I liked her bubbly character alot!
Overall, it was an average read & had its flaws but it's an amazing novel for middle grade readers. I would definitely recommend it to middle grade readers especially if they enjoy HP!
