Chloe Shipton & The Quill of LeFay was a very interesting read. I really loved this story. I enjoyed the characters, the setting of the world, and the plot. The characterization of Chloe was one of the things I liked most about this novel. I immediately cared about Chloe and her story. She's a quiet, bookish student who can hear the thoughts of the living...and the dead. Many call her a freak and as a result she's often bullied and targeted by a particularly mean girl Lydia. We get a real se ...more

I have received an ARC of this beautiful book from Lynn. I wish I can give Chloe Shipton & The Quill of Lefay ten stars because this book will give you goosebumps that will last for hours.

Chloe Shipton is the only one in her school to have the magical ability to read the minds of the alive and the dead. She’s a selfless and forgiving person that she follows the screams of her torturer. She was placed in a state of spirit entrapment because she was caught watching the mysterious ritual invol

Recieved ARC from the author. Firstly I like the concept of the cover artwork, at first glance I thought it was a curtain, then I saw the figure. I quite enjoyed this one, Chloe the studious 15yr old is mature, selfless despite all she’s been through and I’d say naive.

The story starts off well, the thing that surprised me the most was the girl had to almost die before the boy noticed her. Apart from the obvious, the story is based on friendship and magic, there’s an abundance of both. Good desc

Chloe Shipton & the Quill of Lipton LeFay is a very well written book by Lynn Veevers. This book reminded me a little bit of Harry Potter but had a different feel to it. Yes it was set in a boarding school of sorts that teaches children how to use their magical gifts, but in this case the children were divided based on their gifts. Just like in your average highschool however, they form cliques and apparently even these kids are not above bullying. As I said, the fact it was a boarding schoo ...more

I have a weakness for all things magic related and Lynn Veevers has created an extremely interesting world that combines common lore and mythology with multiple styles of how magic can be perceived. I'm really interested to see how this world grows from here as well as delve deeper into its history.

Grammaire is basically like Hogwarts meets Charmed with a dash of medieval times. There are two sects of magic that house many different types of sorcerers and sorceresses, everything from elemental m

oH God! Dear Lynn you did it again. Being a part of the ARC team is the best thing that happened to me in a while, I recieved this amazing book couple days ago though I noticed it in my mail box last night but I don't know how but I read it, all of it.

A fifteen years old Chloe Shipton a student of thought belonged to the Order of Cogitari. One day in a sudden Chloe disappears, her spirit separates from her body, and Chloe spirit wakes up in the campus graveyard while she couldn't remember what

I am surprised I liked it as much as I did. I am not normally one who goes for school-based magic fantasy books. Just not one of my go-to genres. With that being said, I actually liked this story, it was so different and so well told. It wasn’t overly predictable either.

The relationships were really well done, they felt real and normal. They weren’t forced, plus the side characters were all multi-layers. Which just added so much more to the story. I also found the relationship between the studen

Lynn paints magically inviting worlds, if you haven't read her other book I recommend it. This book doesn't disappoint. The characters backstories do leave a lot to be discovered, but since this looks to be the beginning of a series, it's best not to give all the inside information in the first book! I like the trend of series beginning with a shorter first book so that way I can get a good vision of the world and the characters before committing to the full series. ha. My only complaint is that ...more

A wonderful tale; dragons, magic, and a school for children of magic.

Young Chloe faces evil at her school of magic. Being separated from her body is a horrible fate. One her friends seek to save her from. Along with magic, dragons, master sorcerer's they uncover a plot that threatens not only the magic community, but normal humans. An exciting read. I enjoyed this immensely.

I was excited to read Chloe Shipton and the Quill of LeFey because I'm a pretty big fan of books set in magical schools. The downfall with this genre is that I automatically compare all books to the world of Hogwarts. It just can't be helped. That means my standards are pretty high, but exploring the magical worlds other authors create is always fun and interesting.
