I liked this book. The thing that I like the most was the writing style. There was a lot of funny sarcastic banter between the characters. This story is completely filled with women. I can remember only a handful of men being in the story, so that was something I am not used to either. Some of the teasing and ribbing from the female characters were things I haven't heard before, because it is only something one woman could say to another. Like when Krys was talking about her bra

Awesome story

As always the author didn't disappoint. Some of the key points of the story were predictable, but you can gloss over it and appreciate the magic system and world building. The characters are endearing, smart and funny! A page turner who deserve the money I spent on it.

Different yet familiar Fantasy novel by Niall Teasdale.

This is basically what happens when you mix, Hogwarts, dragons and pretty girls with a more mature audience. Krystal Ward was raised by nuns, but as soon as her magical talent was discovered that is what she anted to do. Learn about magic! Add another five other friends and an interesting world withe racial and social devides depending on what color your draco-form is and you get a typical Teasdale setting and story.

In all I enjoyed myself

I liked Teasdale's Thaumatology 101, and I liked this one. That's not to say that MISFIT MAGIC is the same, but some of the elements repeat -- main character who's a prodigy magic student, slowly developing her talent and confidence. Some lesbian sex, but not that much (for Teasdale, that is) and leavened by repartee, innuendo, and sometimes bumbling attempts at seduction.

The magic seems nice - powerful but not unlimited, and requiring a lot of study and practice. The world has some depth, but i
If nothing else, Niall Teasdale excels at world building, and here is another interesting and divergent high fantasy world that he has laid out, and built strong rules for.

Make no mistake, even though pretty much everyone in the novel's a dragon (they take humanoid form for… plot reasons) there really doesn't seem to be any tie to the dragons of his previous series. This is a new world — with familiar archetypes. And if you like those comfortable character types, odds are, you'll enjoy this one,

This was a mixed bag for me. There were some really cool ideas and some interesting world building, I liked the idea of a society of dragons, socially stratified by color. There is a lot of potential story telling in this world. Unfortunately, the story itself fell a little flat for me, it wasn't terrible, but neither was it particularly ground breaking. The characterizations were very two dimensional, with little or no character growth, with the exception of one character, who was not the prota ...more

I really liked this book, it has elements from other series by this author, including the lesbian relationships, but in many ways it’s quite different. It’s almost a YA fantasy, with a little added sex.
I found it interesting that the whole world is inhabited by different types of dragon and rather than inter species tensions, in this book it’s the strain between different colours of dragons.
The obvious comparison for the magic school is with Hogwarts but I found it more like ‘Whitehall’ school

So much fun!!

An orphan dragon raised at a convent run orphanage wins a scholarship to a magic college for females. We join Krystal the day she arrives at the dorms.

Krystal and her band of misfit friends are my kind of ladies. Smart, caring, a little naive and each unique in her own way. This first semester is focused on each finding her way in the unusual world of college.

I have enjoyed one of Teasdale's other series so much I picked this up on first glance. Giggle worthy with a lesbian twist. I

Not as expected

I expected the sex. That's the author's signature.

What was missing was a truly coherent world. The plot hung together well, and the characters were tolerable, if predictable. But there was a lot about the social structure of the world that did not make sense.

I will likely buy the next book, because his writing ^is^ readable, but I do not feel I can recommend this series at present.

Dragons. Really

It was different but the same. Some things apparently don't change.
I like the world and the characters. There is a huge potential here and we will see how it goes. It is already decided that I will buy the next book in the series.
Thank you and now on to the next work.

Absolutely brilliant "magic school" type series, but with the inevitable sexcapades resulting in cramming all girls college age students into shared living spaces short on privacy!

Utterly loved it, like Harry Potter but more sex and girls! First book of a series of only two so far, so here is hoping there are MANY MORE BEING WRITTEN, HINT HINT NIALL TEASDALE!

Please keep them coming.

Niall Teasdale is still performing magic with their writing. I continue to be impressed by the path of the stories. When I read, I seek stories that are full of life and complexity. Niall rarely fails to provide in any way shape or form. I will continue to grab as many stories as I can for as long as they keep coming.

With this book I was hoping for something similar to, or related to Niall's earlier Thaumatology books. Unfortunately, it is not. This is just a lightly pornographic Harry Potter type thing with all girls who are also dragons. Someone with Niall Teasdales imagination really does not need to copy the work of others. I was disappointed. ...more

A fun read, but not the most well-put-together book. I wanted something light, and I am typically willing to give authors a try. For this one, I would say that, just because it is fantasy, it does not need to have everyone be the best at everything. It makes things a bit unrealistic. I might check out the next one in the series, I might check out others from this one, I have not decided yet.

Another interesting story by Mr Teasdale. It was a good story and I thought it ended almost predictably. There was one part about halfway through the book you get a repeat paragraph it shows up right after the following paragraph. But the characters as per usual were all quite interesting.

Loved it.

Everyone is talking about how much sex is in this book... must not have read ANY of is other works. Frankly I could have gone for a bit more. All in all excellent story and I'm looking forward to any possible sequels.

I find the world setting quite interesting and liked all the misfits. I can't wait to see how this series develops.

I really enjoyed this book! It is very entertaining, with enough suspense to keep things moving forward without being overbearing. The good characters are all very likable, and the bad characters are great for boos and hisses. I especially love the main character, her strength and compasion.

The world premise is also quite interesting - haven't seen a mix of ideas quite like this before. I really can't wait until the next one is out!

I was born in the vicinity of Hadrian's Wall so perhaps a bit of history rubbed off. Ancient history obviously, and border history, right on the edge of the Empire. I always preferred the Dark Ages anyway; there’s so much more room for imagination when people aren’t writing down every last detail. So my idea of a good fantasy novel involved dirt and leather, not shining plate armour and Hollywood- ...more
