Perfect for fans of The School for Good and Evil, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to M. A. Larson’s Pennyroyal Academy is hailed by the New York Times as a “breathtakingly exciting novel” with a heroine who “deserves a special place in a new pantheon of capable, feisty and, yes, admirable literary princesses”.
A triumphant victory over the witches has proven that Princess Cadet Evie really does belong at Pennyroyal Academy. News of her heroism has traveled far and wide – inspiring a kingdom of grateful citizens and, when the new term starts, a wave of fresh academy recruits.
While it’s good to be returning to the academy as a second-class cadet, things are not as they should be. Evie witnesses the vicious attack of an innocent woman – by a trio of princesses. Pennyroyal’s headmistress general, Princess Beatrice, is dubious about what Evie saw – princesses are enforcers of truth and justice, not thugs. But Evie isn’t so sure. Then, amid piles of fan mail, she finds a letter with an ominous threat. A secret society has come out of the shadows with a wicked plan, putting the academy in peril. It’s up to Evie and her friends to unravel the devious plot and save Pennyroyal Academy.
This sequel to the beloved, critically acclaimed Pennyroyal Academy promises middle-grade listeners a tale full of adventure and suspense.
