After completing her first year of learning magic at Whitehall School, Emily accepts an invitation from Princess Alassa to accompany her on her progress back to her home country of Zangaria, where the princess may meet her future husband. Alassa, who was a spoiled brat before she met Emily, wants to show off her friend - and impress potential suitors.
For Emily, it is a chance to relax and explore a world very different to Earth, meet new people and come to terms with her reputation in the Nameless World. After her defeat of Shadye, everyone wants to know her, to talk with her, to kill her or to marry her. For Emily, hardly a social butterfly, the experience is disconcerting. She was never seriously courted before, not on Earth.
And yet, as she sees more of the countries surrounding Whitehall, she feels more and more out of place. The locals come from a very different culture, one that is often strange and horrifying to her eyes. Even her friends seem different people in their homes.
But dark forces are at work, plotting to capture the princess, take power in Zangaria, and undo all of Emily's work. As all hell breaks loose, Emily may be all that stands between Zangaria and a return to the dark ages of brute force that threatened to lay the kingdom low once before. And if she fails, her friends will be just the first victims of a war that will rip the Allied Lands apart.

I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the next! Definitely recommend to all.
"Good story, very good narrator..."
and very interesting, though not as good as the first book, mainly because of just plain too many references back to the first book.
I enjoy the narrator very much and the details put into the story to bring the new world to life.
I'm looking forward to the next book.
I keep asking myself if magicians with wands aren't good at magic in this land is a jab at Harry Potter?? LOL
"bright, witty, a complete joy"
Love the characters, the plot, the intrigue and the layers of life in a strange world by young girls growing into strong women who may be a bit unsure of how to go about bettering their native or adopted world yet wanting only to better their world and themselves. new characters are added and make you wonder "now what?". Never boring, clever continuity and friends who become allies who may shape their world as well as themselves whether society wants them to or not. Mystery and honesty. Loyalty and trust. Friends wo question and a whole lot of enemies.
Once again I was impressed by this story and I hope others will give this series a listen, I’m just hoping that this series won’t disappoint. So far it has been impressive so please continue with the good work.
"A young connecticut mage in some kings court"
This book is exceedingly well written. It is reminiscent of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court with a plot that resembles Harry Potter. It, thankfully, is not a young adult novel.
"Lessons in Etiquette"
This book every bit as interesting as the first. Can hardly wait for more. MRB
"So Glad to see this series in audio format"
I have read all of the books in this series to date, and now I am enjoying them again in audio form. This is a wonderfuly rich world which happily crosses Connecticut Yankee and Harry Potter with a bit of Game of Thrones for good measure. I highly recommend it!
not as many references to Harry potters books this time around loved the naration
This series just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait for the next book to come out!
