I love this whole series and this is a wonderful ending. In this one I particularly liked the generosity and bravery on display - there's no question that the kids will step up for friends in need. We'll miss you Stella!

Spannender Abschlussband

Stella Montgomerys ältliche Tanten sind bisher daran gescheitert, aus ihrer wissbegierigen Nichte eine Dame zu machen. Die Wakestone-Hall-Akademie, ganz in der Nähe des vorigen Abenteuers in Wormwood Mire gelegen, soll Stella nun endlich Disziplin, Gehorsam und eine würdevolle Körperhaltung einbläuen. Stella ist noch aufgewühlt in Gedanken an ihre Zwillingsschwester Luna und von der Neuigkeit, dass sie selbst magische Fähigkeiten hat. Auch das Schicksal von Stellas Mutter

*Sigh* I loved every bit of this book - the characters, the language, the suspense, the imagery, all of it. My primary school-aged self would have been obsessed.

A perfect conclusion to the series. The best series of all the middle grade fiction set in Victorian era ☺️☺️☺️
Der dritte Teil hat mir sogar noch besser gefallen als der Vorgänger (Teil 1 kenne ich leider nicht). Es geht um einiges mysteriöser und fantastischer zu und Stella erfährt auch mehr über ihre Familie, so dass sich viele Fragen über Stellas Herkunft und ihre magische Eigenschaft endlich auflösen lassen.

Der Anfang gestaltet sich erstmal harmlos: Stella kommt in ein furtchtbar strenges Internat, wo sie nur zögerlich neue Freunde findet. Warum alle anderen Mädchen wahre Musterschülerinnen sind, erf

Judith Rossell’s marvellous magical Victorian series comes to a conclusion with Wakestone Hall. She has captured the hearts and minds of many young and older readers.

Orphan Stella Montgomery’s life has been filled with tragedy, drama and heartache. She has discovered new friends, learnt to self-reliance and discovered an inner magical self. Stella is packed off to Wakestone Hall, her three aunts and her mother’s former boarding school. Here it is expected that she will learn to follow the guide

A beautiful ending to an enchanting series!

I have enjoyed reading this series with my daughter. Whilst I would rate the series overall higher this 3rd book in the trilogy wasn't our favourite. I would recommend this series to readers who love history, adventure and magic.
This is the third and final book in the Stella Montgomery series, about a plucky young orphan living with her dreadful aunts in Victorian England. In this one, Stella is sent to a terrible boarding school whose headmistress has a sinister secret, and is forced to investigate when one of her new friends goes missing. If anything, there's too much happening in this with a few loose ends left, but overall it's a nice ending to Stella's tale.

Stella, das Mädchen mit ein wenig Feenblut und einer meist unsichtbaren Schwester wurde von ihren drei schrecklichen Tanten nach Wakestone Hall ins Internat gesteckt. Immerhin waren die Damen sowie Stellas Mutter ja auch dort gewesen. Doch das Internat ist schrecklich – lieblos und voller strenger Regeln. Und als Ottilie verschwindet macht sich Stella mit ihrer Freundin Amaryllis auf die Suche. Diese wird gefahrvoll und bringt Stella auch auf die Spur ihrer eigenen Vergangenheit.

Wakestone Hall is the final Stella Montgomery Intrigue. Stella has been sent off to a boarding school by her aunts and finds an exciting time. As with the other Stella Montgomery books, there is a great adventure as the main part of the story. It's a fun, thrilling kind of adventure, and the story came to a very satisfying ending, but this was not as strong a book as the first one in the series.

I preferred the mystery of this book to the mystery of the first and second ones in the series, but th

After reading all three of these in less than a week, I am utterly enchanted (and now accordingly despondent that the experience is over). I can't believe I've only stumbled upon Stella Montgomery and her adventures now! This thrilling conclusion to the series is once again impeccably plotted and enchanting in its execution, with lovable new characters but a familiar feel that will draw loyal readers immediately back in.

Wakestone Hall is a miserable place and we feel for Stella and her new frie

I loved the first two books in this series but this one was a slight disappointment. It had such a strong start and I loved the boarding school setting but then the book just went meh. It was a very anti climatic ending and everything wrapped up too easily (although this is a middle grade book!) I HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone that loves a mystery middle grade.

I loved the characters in this book quite a bit, especially Stella.

Representation: blind side character

I loved the wrap up book for this children’s series. Exciting, adventure, bad guys to beat, friendships, family. This was fun. These books are not marketed in the US, I’m not sure how I even stumbled upon it. You can buy them on amazon, but they are coming from Australia. The illustrations are amazing as well.

What a delightful story. Even for a 43 yr old I was engrossed and looked forward to each chapter and turn of events. I haven't read the first two (I won this) so think I might need to get the others. Lovely illustrations and very vividly written.

I definitely warmed up more to this series during the second and third book as the writing improved. They’re a good mix of adventure and cuteness
A wonderful conclusion to a terrific series, deservedly successful.

Wakestone Hall is the third in the Stella Montgomery series by Judith Rossell.

Stella’s aunts send her to Wakestone Hall, the boarding school they all went to when they were younger. Here she is supposed to learn discipline and have all the mischief knocked out of her. This is what happened to them and to her mother, of whom they do not speak.

Stella has no friends until one night she rescues a cat from the roof outside the dormitory window. Two new boarders Ottilie and Agapanthus, help her to r
Nachdem Stella im 2. Teil dieser Reihe mit ihrem Cousin und ihrer Cousine eine verhältnismäßig schöne Zeit verleben konnte, und sogar ihre Großmutter traf, ist sie dann doch wieder in die Fänge ihrer gräßlichen Tanten geraten. Die haben sie umgehend auf ein Internat geschickt, auf dass sie - und Stellas Mutter - selbst damals gingen. Leider geht es dort nicht annähernd so lustig zu wie bei Hanni & Nanni. Dennoch findet Stella nach einiger Zeit in Ottilie und Amaryllis zwei Freundinnen, die genau ...more

Stella kommt in ein Internat , um aus ihr eine Dame zu machen. Doch irgend etwas stimmt hier nicht, Personen verschwinden und das Zimmer der Direktorin schein auch äußerst ungewöhnlich zu sein, denn jeder der es betritt, scheint verändert zu sein.

Auch dieser Band hat uns ( Mama und 11-Jährige) wieder vollstens überzeugt.
Wie auch bei den Vorgängern ist hier die perfekte Mischung aus Spannung, Grusel, Spaß und Mystik.
Die Personen werden sehr bildlich dargestellt, so , dass man auch als Neueinsteig

Und wieder ein wunderbares Abenteuer mit unserer Lieblingsheldin Stella.
Nachdem sie von ihren Cousin und ihrer Cousine zurückkehren musste, haben ihre drei Tanten es endgültig satt sich Sorgen um sie zu machen und bringen sie ins Internat. Es ist das gleiche, dass auch schon die drei Tanten und auch Stellas Mutter schon besucht hat.

Stella wird ins Internat geschickt und muss sich dort ertmal zurecht finden. Doch hier geht eindeutig etwas nicht mit rechten Dingen zu, denn alle, die einmal zur Direktorin zitiert werden, kommen verändert und eigenartig wieder zurück. Das passiert dann auch noch mit Ottilie, mit der Stella sich angefreundet hat. Also muss sie natürlich den Dingen auf den Grund gehen.
Ein wunderbares Kinderbuch, das den Leser - auch den erwachsenen - eintauchen lässt in das Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, wozu auch
