If you like us are simply going through the motions of everyday life while you secretly wait for your acceptance owl from Hogwarts to arrive, then you like us are probably always game for a good boarding school story. Unbelievable settings? Learning fantastic things like harnessing magical powers or expert-level assassin skills? We love it all. And even the most seemingly ordinary of boarding schools take drama, romance, and mystery to the next level.
Beneath the Sugar Sky , the third novella in Seanan McGuire's excellent Wayward Children series, is out this week, giving me the perfect opportunity to write about one of my favorite fantasy subgenres: the magical boarding school story. Here are nine fantasy books that use the magical boarding school setting to help tell their story Check out more of Cai's work for the Wayward Children series over at Tor. The novellas of Wayward Children , the series from Seanan McGuire, are examples of smart, affecting fantasy stories that both tells its own story and uses that story to comment on the genre in clever, subversive ways. Narnia's Pevensies or Wonderland's Alice would be great candidates, for example. When children start to turn up murdered, the children have a mystery to solve. The second installment, Down Among the Sticks and Bones , tells the story of Jack and Jill—how they ended up in their fantasy world, and what led to them getting kicked out.
And of course, you get lots of magical friends and a smoking hot love interest, too! Those whose powers awaken must attend one of two magical academies, getting involved in a war between light and darkness. An instant cast of both friends and enemies, as well as having some evil vampires show up mysteriously, sucks us right in. Bad joke. Remi discovers her shifter powers when she finds herself attending an academy meant to awaken their powers. This book will have everything that we academy fans crave: an irresistible jerk, mean girls, college life, and of course, a dark secret waiting to be uncovered. While the academy itself has nothing paranormal about it, our heroine finds herself developing magical powers and discovering a secret order that once gained access to a magical realm at her school.
