" Best one so far. How will he top this next time ahhhh? Nearly had me crying twice (that never happens) so high praise " said.

" I have been a fan on The School for Good and Evil series for a few years now and every book gets increasingly better. A Crystal in Time has now became my second favourite book (after QFG)! I enjoyed this book so much I couldn’t put it down and managed to read it within two days (started on 9th finished on 10th) A full review will be coming soon! " said.

" Soman has done it again with his crazy fairy tale antics!! While it’s not my favorite of the five books he’s written in this series, it’s still managed to keep me excited and desperate for more. While there was a lot of repetition of information we already knew, making the book seem shorter than it actually was, it was still full of twists and surprises. I know Book 6 will be even more epic ! " said.

"Düzgün bir yorum yazabilmek için biraz bekledim ki düşüncelerimi toparlayabileyim.Öncelikle Soman Chainani’nin ilk serisi favorilerim arasındaydı (artık değil).Bu seride (#Camelot Years) ilk seriden sonra yaşanan olayları ,sonuçları ve yeni maceraları anlatıyor,eğer ikinci seriyi okumasaydım belki ilk seri favorilerim arasında kalabilirdi.Somanın olay örgüsü artık beni çok fazla yormaya başladı.Çocuk kitap seviyesinde kitaplar yazıyor ki ben böyle kitaplara bayılırım ama seriyi olması gerekenden daha fazla göstermesi artık gerçekten sıkmaya başladı.İlk üçlemenin ilk kitabı mükemmel yazılmıştı 2 ve 3 o kadar güzel olmasa da dünyayı sevdiğimden favorilerim arasına almıştım.Seri de katlanamadığım karakter (Sophie), ilk üçlemede ki olayları daha çok sevdiğim için çok gözüme batmıyordu ama bu seri de ne kadar ‘iyileşse’ de iyice sinirimi bozmaya başladı.Keşfedilmesi ,baş karakter olması gereken bir çok karakter varken egoist ve kötü bir karakteri sürekli hikayenin merkezine koyması beni bıktırdı. (ki yazarın favori karakteriymiş Sophie,bunun sebebi ise kendine çok benziyormuş aynı Sophie gibiymiş günlük hayatında).Böyle olunca sevdiğim dünyadan ve karakterlerden soğumaya başladım.Bunu sebebi hep Sophie hem de kitapta en sevdiğim karakterlerden Agatha’nın(Sophie’nin en yakın arkadaşı ve Sophie’nin tam tersi) böyle birine katlanması.Bu seri ortalama 8-12 yaş arasına hitap ediyor ama yazar serinin böyle geçmesine rağmen bu yaş grubunun üstüne de hitap eden olaylarla hikayeyi harmanlıyor.İşin garip yanı ise ,genel olarak büyük yaşa hitap etse de(yazma şekli ve olay örgüsüyle) okuyucu kitlesinin %70’i çocuklar ve işte bu yüzden böyle zehirli,gereksiz,şaçma ve ‘’arkadaşın ne kadar kötü olsa da seni kullansa da sen onun yanında kal’’ felsefesini aşılaması hiç hoş değil.Genel olarak bu sebeblerden artık bu seriyi okumayı düşünmüyor ve desteklemiyorum.Daha önce hikayeyi derinlemesine düşünmeden de zevk aldığım için de kendime kızıyorum." said.

" Update: Happy release day! Here's to hoping my copy gets here very soon ... Update: Currently rereading QoG in preperation for this... I'm so ready for it to be here very soon! ___________I'm way too excited for this!! LOOK AT THE COVER!!! <3 I need to know what happens next, eventhough the cover do tell some ... maybe. A bit at least. " said.

" /plot, characters, writing, pacing, development/so. wtf.guess I’ll have to wait another year to get my heart broken, eh? " said.

" This one is probably one of my favorites of the whole series! How many plot twists can you throw? ALSO CLIFFHANGERS! Now I have to wait so long for the next book ahhhhh!!Also, more Tedros and Agatha would be nice :) " said.

“Past is Present and Present is Past”



Y’all omg thIS BOOK AHHH!!!

This book was definitely my favourite one out of the series, Chainani reallyyyy outdid himself! I loved new characters we met, how we got to explore more from our already beloved characters, and also how we got to dive deeper into characters from the past...!

I really have nothing bad to say about this book. My major problems with the last book were fixed in this one, and I didn’t spot anything new I didn’t like.

Something I’ve noticed is that there is always foreshadowing in the first chapter of these books, so as I was reading the first chapter, I was looking for potential foreshadowing, but I wasn’t sure if it was actually was there. No spoilers but!! The first chapter is actually intense omg, read it well!

I also loved how the lines were blurred between who is good and who is evil, as sometimes it isn’t always black and white, especially if you change the perspective you’re looking at. SO GOOD!

Overall, I believe this book to be a full 5/5✨, just due to everything. I loved the plot twists we see throughout the novel (and one in particular with a certain furry friend), and just all the development we see and everything! I would recommend you read it if you’ve read the rest of the series!
