10 – Welcome to Welton by Marie Brennan
- This isn’t properly speaking a short story: it is a series of teaser scenes. Teasers for what? We find out tomorrow but my guess is an awesome novel about a magic university. These eleven scenes follow four new students at Welton, the best university for telepaths, telekenetics and ceremonial magicians. Kim, Liesel and Robert are trying to adapt to college life and figure out what they want to do. But their freshman year is made much more complicated by Robert’s roommate, Julian, who is one of the rare, supremely powerful and socially awkward wilders. A fun, fresh take on the magic school trope. I’m looking forward to the novel!
