It was so wonderful returning to Fairy Tale Reform School!  If you haven't read it yet, you really should check out the first book in the series Flunked.  You can find my review for it HERE.

That being said, since this is the second book in the series, there may be some minor spoilers for the first book within.  So read on at your own risk.

Charmed takes off pretty much where Flunked ended.  We are still at the Fairy Tale Reform School and we still have most of the same characters.  Blackbeard does join the cast as one of the teachers, and one of the princesses does make quite a few more appearances than before, but our core cast of students is still pretty much the same.

However, in Charmed, Gilly is a bit more stuck on herself than she was in the last book.  She has let being a "hero" go to her head and sometimes forgets that her friends helped her with what went down in Flunked.  Unfortunately this causes a few issues for her.  However, it does let us see her grow as a character which is something I appreciate as a reader and a fan of this series.

All in all, Charmed continued on with the fun wonderful world that Jen Calonita created in the first installment.  It is fun and full of adventure.  And hopefully Jen will be continuing on with this series in a similar matter.  I have grown attached to the fun and quirky cast of characters and I want to see them grow more and to see where their adventures take them.
