The Alchemists Academy Book 2: Elemental Explosions by Kailin Gow
A new student has entered The Alchemists Academy, and he brings with him an explosive power that threatens the Academy and the legend of Merlin. Wirt thought he was the only bad boy at the Academy, but he was wrong. Not only is Roland Black worse than Wirt, but a new teacher had replaced one of their beloved teachers, and she has more planned for Wirt and his friends than just lesson plans. Alana, his crush has grown prettier, and now he is rivals for her attention with not only his best friend Spencer, but newcomer Roland, as well. On top of that, it is their second year, and the year where all the students must pass a test to move on to the Elite Class at the Academy. The Elite Class is the only class in the third year at the Academy, and the students who fail will be sent home, others will face something even deadlier.
Ms. Lake coughed discreetly, and Ender Paine looked around at her.
“I thought perhaps that we should tell the students why there have been no quantum games for several years, headmaster.”
Ender Paine’s eyes narrowed, but he nodded. “If you insist.”
“The quantum games are dangerous,” Ms. Lake said, looking out over the assembled students. “Very dangerous. For years, it was felt that they were too dangerous to be played in their full form. It is only recently, under pressure from some of those who feel that they make the school more competitive, that we have reinstituted them.”
“Not to mention the governors,” Ender Paine said, with a certain amount of relish. “And we must always do as the governors wish.” It seemed that he wasn’t as unhappy as Ms. Lake to see the games back. Wirt thought about the creatures whose statues were outside the headmaster’s study. He could just imagine things like that enjoying the sport of hyper-leap. Or at least, enjoying its fatal conclusion.
Ms. Lake looked grave. “I would urge you, should you get down to the final spot, to consider very carefully whether it is worth risking your life over. Whether it is worth hurting your friends over. It will only be used as a tie-breaker, but you need to think about what you might do.”
