Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was about a coming of age fantasy. Tria has just entered into The school for sorcery and nothing is as she expected. The teachers are dull, just like the school and the students are strange especially a mysterious boy - Oryon, who wants to be the most powerful one, he kidnaps her boyfriend and her and her troublesome roommate Lina must rescue him in a year or they'll never be seen again.........
It's a very good book, It's hard to put down, I can't wait to read the other book by this author "A Perilous Power"

This is one of the worst book that I have read for this kind of gender. It is clearly inspired by Harry Potter but not in a good way. I guess it could be good for kids but for adults and young adults, who are hoping to fine something magical like Harry. Please skip this book.
The vocabulary and way of showing things are also horribly done. If you want to get this book, please get it at the library, and don't waste your money like I did.,

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The title is quick to draw eager Harry Potter fans to its place on a bookshelf, and the whimsical cover may appear quirky and magical, but for fans of other "schools of sorcery", this novel may be disapointing.
A School for Sorcery focuses on an alternate universe based on late 19th century Europe where magic is common. Sabin's characters are original enough, but somewhat undefined; their pasts, though hinted at, are never discussed. Going in depth into an exciting magical world, what Rowling did so well with Harry Potter, Sabin fails to do with School; the reader is left completely in the dark mysterious land.
It begins as Tria and her mother secretly send Tria to Simonton School for the Magically Gifted, for Tria's rare magic to be trained. Her father scorns her gift, and Tria's mother is forced to spend all her savings to pay for tuition. When Tria arrives, the school appears to be in disrepair; everything is dusty and old, and much different than the broshure. The food is bad, her vain roommate randomly turns into a panther, and mysterious students Oryan and Kress have a deadly scheme. Now she must save her love Wilce from the clutches of the Dire Women within a year or Oryan will take over the school and all the students will suffer.
This book teaches an artful lesson about looking beyond the obvious and what's on the inside. Sabin should be acknowledged for her beautiful use of imagery and symbolism, however, the book contained flaws as well. Tria is a strong heroine, but younger readers will not be able to appreciate the intricate plot that brings out these qualities. The plot is both thrilling and darkly brilliant, as Tria discovers herself and her magical powers.

A Hogwarts-type school at the turn of the century! What an intruiging idea!
Though this book starts out a little campy, with the main character gathering eggs on a small farm, and continues with some very pegan-like philosophy about magic, I found myself thoroughly enjoying "A School for Sorcery." Sabin's style is simple and lyrical, and her story has just enough unusual aspects to carry the reader through untill you begin to realize that the seemingly predictable plot is not what it seems!
I finished this book in two days. It was excellant.

I met Ms. Sabin at a signing and couldn't resist buying this book. I also found that I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. A wonderful tale, one that in the beginning sent me back in time, of tales I recalled as a young girl, from Cinderella to Dirty Dancing. What a great coming of age story with bewitching twists. Danger, power, mirror reflections, teen-love, and some pretty scary stuff as well. A truly enjoyable read.
