[A] most enjoyable book! "Joan Aiken" This is a most enjoyable book! It belongs to a genre of stories I adored when I was young; books such as" A Girl of Limberlost "and "Anne of Green Gables." Tria, the heroine of "A School for Sorcery," is faced with an outsized tussle: her elegant, spiteful roommate has a habit of turning into a black panther at times of stress, a hostile male student summons fearsome entities known as the Dire Women, and the whole sorcery course looks as if it will come to a cataclysmic end until Tria manages to call upon unexpected reserves of power. This is an elegant, complicated story, at times running into parallel action to perplex the pursuing reader. E. Rose Sabin is a writer to look out for. "Joan Aiken, author of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase" J. K. Rowling introduced us to the charms and secrets of Hogwarts; now E. Rose Sabin opens up a school for teens who posses equal talents. "A School for Sorcery" is an excellent study of teens and magic in a very unusual school. "Andre Norton, SFWA Grand Master""
