      “Magic can easily be used both for creation and for ruin.”Different persons – delinquents, and an orphan - from different places were gathered to bring in a strange, magical, and mysterious place to learn and do magic. No one knows why they are being trained to do magic. All they knew was at least, they are not in detention or jail anymore.Tristan Fairholm, is a criminal who wants nothing but to have his brother back. Tristan thinks he doesn’t have anything to live for. His brother is de [...]

      I'm a bit hesitant to give this two stars. It had the potential to be three, but needed much more development. I was left utterly detached and empty at the abrupt ending to what had been a convincing, tension-filled build up. I can't quite say "I liked it." but I can easily say it was at least ok.Fifteen juvenile offenders are thrown into a very original magical world, with destruction being the fuel for that magic. This magic has certain constraints on its use not seen in other systems. A very [...]

      Do not be deterred by the apparent plot similarities to Harry Potter - "The Natural Order" may be a magic school-type novel, but it is a wholly original take on the genre. The protagonist, Tristan, is serving time as a juvenile delinquent, accused of manslaughter. As he mourns the brother whose death he caused, a stranger turns up and whisks him away, along with 14 other students, to an obscure location. Here he is thrown into a school unlike any he has ever known - a school with an entirely uni [...]

    4. Henry Simpson on said:

      This is a well-written fantasy for young adults about a young male protagonist and his classmates learning magic from a group of eccentric professors in an improbable setting with magical properties of its own. Evil may be afoot, testing the young characters. If this brings to mind the Harry Potter books, it’s not surprising. However, this book is no knockoff. The protagonist and his classmates could all be classified as juvenile delinquents, the school is a sort of reformatory, and the kids d [...]

      I’m a fan of series that can take the idea of magic and root into a connection with nature. The combination of science and magical powers takes fantasy and adds a bit of normalcy at least enough to make you stop and wonder for a moment what if magic does exist. The ability to capture a reader in that moment of questioning the reality of magic makes for great story telling and Vickers is a great storyteller. Tristan has been living in a juvenile detention facility since convicted of manslaughte [...]

      Tristan believes he killed his brother. So do his parents and the system that has sentenced him to be locked away in Juvenile detention. But not everyone believes he was the cause of his brother’s death. When a stranger appears at his brother’s grave and offers him an alternative to penitentiary imprisonment he takes it. At first the alternative seems to be an isolated school for other criminals like him but then a strange student floats out of the lake mist and their first lesson is on ‘m [...]

      I would like to think that I am a hard critic when it comes to books. My girlfriend buys me these things because she hates me playing video games and would prefer that I do something less mind-rotting. Or at least that’s how she puts it. Anyway, because she's gone to the effort of buying them for me I am obligated to give them a read. Generally out of rebellion I try to find all of the faults that I can (something that gives me great joy).However, as much as I hate giving my girlfriend the sat [...]

      Usually I don't like fantasy, so I was very skeptical when I started reading this novel, expecting to nitpick every detail about magic; however, I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. R.J. Vickers' narrative style is engaging and nuanced, the story masterfully unfolding, the plot twisting and turning, each revelation as unexpected as the last. And the final plot twist was entirely unexpected, yet extremely fitting. It made me want to re-read the novel to uncover the subtleties and clues I mis [...]

      Fifteen juvenile offenders are taken by plane to a remote (Canadian) location where they enter into a magical world. Little details took me out of the story saying that Canada doesn't have Thanksgiving - we do but it's in October for exaple. There is one important point in the plot that Tristian "forgets" to tell his friends - really? They are all trapped together day in day out I would have thought the slightest thing would have been news.While the pace of life is lessons and homework sometimes [...]

      A wonderful adventure!I give The Natural Order a full five stars. It was exciting, adventurous, and totally captivating. The story moved at a good pace. The characters were wonderful. Fans of Harry Potter will love this series!

    11. Holly C. Elkins on said:

      Spellbinding!I really enjoyed this book! It has mystery, excitement, danger, beauty, friendship, and more within its pages. It is very well written and it kept my attention throughout the entire book.

    12. Carol on said:

      You won't be able to put this one down!Gripping from beginning to end! Wonderful character development! Recommended for young adults and adults too. You will want to start book two in the series as soon as you finish the last page of The Natural Order.

    13. Alicia on said:

      I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book reminded me of The Unwanteds, if the characters had actually been the deviants they were accused of being. For a story containing fourteen characters straight out of juvenile detention, I expected at least one knife fight, or someone fashioning a shiv. The pace was somewhat slow, most of the book entailed them working through excess homework. It felt like it was trying to be as iconic as Hogwarts, but missed the mark. (No [...]

    14. Nick Rossi on said:

      Magic is divided into two main categories: paranormal magic which the use of paranormal methods to manipulate natural forces and illusory magic, the art of appearing to perform supernatural feats. The 15 rebels in R.J. Vickers' The Natural Order have no idea which stream they’re going to be learning. This theme of indecision figures prominently into this tale as a whole.The main juvenile delinquent in The Natural Order is nicely named Tristan Fairholm, a misunderstood, confused kid whose been [...]

    15. Andy Dill on said:

      In her book, The Natural Order, R.J. Vickers has done an excellent job of writing an exciting and intriguing story of magic and the growth of problem children. I loved the way she made the characters so believable and her treatment of magic. I was pleased with the different plot twists and the unknown protagonist they were never quite sure of until the end. Never quite knowing why they were there or what new danger they would face, the students of the school had to figure out too many things on [...]

      DNF @ 59%I really need to finish a book. Finished Blog ReviewThe magic concept in this book is incredibly original, but (there's always a but) it's weird. The magic requires you to destroy something in order to access magic. In school, the student learn to create magic by burning things. I was scared that everyone was going to go magic crazy and become a bunch of pyromaniacs. The concept is explained clearly and well thought out.In the end, I was not engaged whatsoever by this book. It not memor [...]

    17. Tammy on said:

      Didn't like it. If the point was to be whimsical, this book did not succeed. If the point was to have interesting characters, this book did not succeed. If the point was to be original, this book did not succeed. I started reading this book after reading a book that was great, and frankly, I got 20 pages in and couldn't continue. That's how terrible the characters and story are. I finished this book after finishing one of the worst books I've ever read, so this one was marginally better by compa [...]

    18. Ellen B. on said:

      Excellent mix of action and intrigue! This story grabs you right from the first sentence and doesn't let up. The Natural Order is a compelling read, with characters that draw you ever deeper into their complex and fascinating world. The story makes magic believable, and the decisions and actions of otherwise ordinary people in that world consequential. So glad it doesn't end with this one book!

    19. Sunanda Chatterjee on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. I'm a big fan of the Harry Potter series, and this book has some similar elements, in that it is a school teaching magic, but the twist is that the students are the delinquents of society. Tristan's journey is very interesting.

    20. Phthon on said:

      A blend of Hogwarts and Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters this is an imaginative and surprisingly addictive story. I had an absolute blast reading it and am looking forward to many more books from R. J. Vickers! I definitely recommend this book!

    21. Brian Jones on said:

      Harry Potter fans will love this book! The characters are likable and believable. i found myself engrossed in the story. Looking forward to the sequel.

    22. Paula Humphreys on said:

      I really enjoyed the characters and the way I was kept guessing to the very end - cant wait for the sequel!
