'A World Without Princes' is an interesting sequel to 'The School For Good And Evil.' Suspenseful, thoughtful, and a reflection of our broken world. This book makes you realize the depth of Sophie's and Agatha's characters and the similarities between the divided schools and our divided world, always fighting, never getting along.

A World without Princes, is the second installment in the planned trilogy (there is however a fourth book being written) written by Soman Chainani. Compared to the first book, Chainani has brought a whole new perspective of society and equality to his readers. The first book ended in what I would like to call a “now what” moment, leaving the readers guessing. I might have thought that the first book went against the stereotypes, but this one allows the reader to get two different perspectives presented in a very relatable concept. The main characters, Sophie and Agatha are back and ready for the second adventure of a lifetime, within a world of doubt, fear and deception, they're lost on who to trust and who must die. The suspense leaves you guessing what happens in the end, with certain twists and turns, leaving you wondering “who’s really good or evil?”. With the new installment, different sides of characters were revealed letting more information spill out of a chest of untold secrets. This book is definitely a must read, especially if you loved the first book as much as I did, it left me completely starstruck.

I love this book series! Everyone says that sequels are never as good as the first, but these three book series break that tradition. If you love the idea of all of the fairytales grown up and mixed together, and love to see how they are created, these are the books for you.

I couldnt put it down. A massive interesting twist on fairytales. I cant wait to see what comes next from such a talented writer!

The first book was amazingly awesome, but this book you just need the original. This book was OK but the first is WAY better. Don't hate me if you like this book because we all have different opinions

It's a really good book, it keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. I'm sorta jealous of Soman Chainani because I want to write a book, but trust me, it's harder than it seems. A little tip for people writing books - edit EVERYTHING afterwards. A lot of my friends are reading the series and its so hard not to tell them what will happen next. This book is AMAZING!!!!!!

The second book of the school for good and evil starts when Agatha and Sophie get back home. If you've read the first book, you'll remember that Sophie said something about no princes in their story. Well, other princesses and girls like Snow White, Cinderella and many more were inspired by that and they dumped their princes. Now, the school for Good and Evil is the school for Boys and Girls!!! The Never girls were kicked out of their tower and the Ever boys were kicked out of theirs. Now, Agatha has to choose between Sophie and Tedros or a war will begin. Who will Agatha choose and how will their story end??

Jul 16, 2015

this is the School for good and evil after Agatha wishes for Tedros. Turns out because Agatha chose to save her friend Sofie in stead of stay with her prince the schools turned into the school for girls and boys. If Agatha does not kiss Tedros soon a war will break out! Or does this story have a crazy twist?
