New Book: Pennyroyal Academy by M. A. Larson

Pennyroyal Academy by M. A. Larson is released today. The book description doesn't provide a specific fairy tale but it does claim to be "set in Grimm’s fairytale world." Sounds like giving away a specific fairy tale or two may be spoilerish, so that may be why specific tales are not mentioned. And it has the flavor of a series but nothing states that either.

Book description:

Pennyroyal Academy: Seeking bold, courageous youths to become tomorrow's princesses and knights….Come one, come all!

A girl from the forest arrives in a bustling kingdom with no name and no idea why she is there, only to find herself at the center of a world at war. She enlists at Pennyroyal Academy, where princesses and knights are trained to battle the two great menaces of the day: witches and dragons. There, given the name “Evie,” she must endure a harsh training regimen under the steel glare of her Fairy Drillsergeant, while also navigating an entirely new world of friends and enemies. As Evie learns what it truly means to be a princess, she realizes surprising things about herself and her family, about human compassion and inhuman cruelty. And with the witch forces moving nearer, she discovers that the war between princesses and witches is much more personal than she could ever have imagined.

Set in Grimm’s fairytale world, M.A. Larson’s Pennyroyal Academy masterfully combines adventure, humor, and magical mischief.
