When he’s invited at eighteen, making him the youngest student in Arcantaria history, Dash is less excited because he has to leave behind the only good friends he’s ever had—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, Fatima, and most of all, the guy he loves, werewolf mage Jaz ...more

I am loving this adventure. This fast paced story is filled with angst and intrigue. Dash and the gang have been split up by attending their various secondary education locations. When Dash finds himself being swept up by a group with an agenda he knows they are going to have to get the gang back together to once again save the day. I love that they all realize that it takes working together to make things happen. This story wraps some things up and leaves us with some intriguing questions, This ...more

“When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand and going right. Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there to brighten up even your darkest night. You just call out my name and you know wherever I am I'll come got a friend.” ~ Carol King

Dash Mercury, of ‘Rising Magic’ by Tara Lain, is not as excited as he thought he would be about Arcantaria. The prestigious school for magic is supposed to be where the “cream of the crop” learn from the best p

A Werewolf at Hogwarts? But of course!!

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this series, note that it is s spin-off of Tara's Harker Pack series, where the main characters of this series are first found. A deviation from her usual MM or MMF romances, Tara's ventured into the world of the supernatural with both series. Herein you will find a world populated with were's and magic, which heretofore existed only in her vivid imagination!

In this sequel to Tara's Hidden Powers - Book 1 of the

This return of Dash and Jazz is a great addition to the Superordinary Society series. This continues with the engaging characters and entertaining storyline introduced in book one, Hidden Powers, which really should be read first and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Tara is allowing us into her world of magic. I love the way she explains it so you feel like you are there with the characters.

Dash battled a powerful wizard and won so he gets invited to a prestigious school for wizards. He leaves his friends but finds the school isn't it is all cracked up to be. Since he is the youngest student no one treats him well.

He wonders if it was worth coming here until things start to happen.

Jazz misses Dash since he left, they became so close and now he is gone. Jazz

Delightful YA adventure with magic, intrigue, action and good vs evil.  The story-line was engaging and kept me reading the entire book in one sitting. The characters were well crafted and i really loved both Jazz and Dash. It was awesome to read about the previous MC's from the original series.

This YA series is the long awaited spin off to the Tales of the Harker Pack, which i loved. The readers of that series met a young boy named Jazz, and this story centers around him and the key MC's in tha

Dash and his friends are back at it. Dash is now going to the mage school Arcantaria, but things are not going as planned. When he finally finds his place, he is not so sure about things, but he needs the help of his true friends. Yet no one not even Dash knows where Arcantaria is located so how will the friends get back together?

This is a fun and engaging adventure geared more towards a YA style. It is the second in a spin off series. I enjoyed seeing the kids all back together and working tow
