After reading Discern, I wanted more so bought these. They were entertaining. but didn't really move the main Discern story along. so, I'd say it's okay, I just wanted more of Austin and Nicole and to see where Nicole's magic will take her. I can't wait for the release of the next book in that series.

I'm going to review each novelette separately. The three star rating is over all. These books are for youth ages 10-12, in my opinion. Along the caliber of Brandon Mulls Fablehaven. But you really have to read Discern, the first novel to understand or care about the characters. But the stories where entertaining. And they progressed in creepiness.

The Focus
This story was kind of weird. No time for depth. Not sure if it was a story worth telling. In the little over an hour that it took to read it, the excitement did not kick in until the end. Sure, circumstances are creepy, if the feeling in the last 20 minutes of the book could have been in the beginning, it could have been a horror story. The end was disturbing, but you have to suffer through the opening that progressed slowly.

The Manor
This could have very well been a scary stories to tell in the dark. I think it would creep out an audience between the ages of 10-12. The spooky factor started from page one with this photo that Austin notices keeps changing. The only thing that bothered me, was that we never really understand why anything happened. There was no resolution for the story. Just a lot of creepy events.

The Angel
If Dr. Who's weeping Angels freak you out, and you want a good scare, then you will like this short novelette. Entirely scary from the first moment they talk about the creepy angel statue guarding the house. Fun to read in the middle of the night. Boo!

Andrea Pearson is a very creative writer. These novellas were fun to read while waiting for her Katon University series books 2 and 3 to come out. They are fast paced reading because you don't want to put them down. Love them! Great Author! Try her other books too like the Kilenya series!

These little shifts in viewpoint are well-written. Andrea keeps us in the world of the Arete with Austin, Nicole and Lizzie learning more about each of them. The mystery keeps you guessing. I am reading them for the second time they were that good the first read through. She has created an intriguing world that mixes magic, paranormal, alien and romance into a compelling page-turner.

I love this series of books. As a mother of teens it is nice to have books that are clean yet capture the interest of any age reader. I like an easy read and these books flow effortlessly from one to another.

I read these again after a three month delay because I wanted to see if there was more they add to the overall world of Katon University. I am still undecided. Out of curiosity (and as a librarian) I looked up the name. Praxis refers to practice and novellas are short snippets of a story so truly the author has alerted us that these are practice stories. I see them as author exercises in telling mini stories that have plots not intended for full-length stories; moreover, they would be distracting within a larger story for each of these characters. Instead, this is a collection of three short stories to develop the different characters previously introduced in Discern. I started this wanting to learn more about Nichole Williams and how she would develop her wind powers under an expert mentor teacher. The first story was hers but it never fully advanced her powers. Instead I was left with More mysteries and loose ends. I have begun a tally of items Nichole looses throughout this series: cellos -2, bows -2, suitcase -1. And unsolved mystery beings who might come back in the future: monsters, eyes, old lady, a complete street in Ohio. The abrupt ending left me so frustrated but happy to have the next full length book on my Indle waiting for me.

The second novella showed character development of Austin but triggers the questions of why, when, and seriously? The same three friends are all here but this shows there is no dramatic sappy romance from his point of view.

The focus was my favorite because we are allowed to see Lizzie develop as her own person with her ability and her friendships with new people. While Nichole shows up in the end, Lizzie and her friends solve their dilemma.

I'm glad I read these but I am definitely moving on to re next full-length novel.

Set of 3 novellas to read after Discern. Each short story deals with a different character during break between semesters. They seemed disjointed and didn't really take the relationship between NIcole and Austin anywhere (Which I was hoping for). But they were fun and entertaining and hopefully might work into later stories (We'll see).

Nicole goes to Ohio for 3 weeks to study with a famous magical cellist to learn how to harness her power better. She meets and hears an old lady in her apartment building who plays her cello every night in ways that Nicole can only imagine. She wants to know her secret, but that might be deadly for her.

The 2nd novella dealt with Austin and a magical photo his brother gives him that changes every time he views it. When he senses sinister purposes in the being that moves along the edge of the photo, he determines to save the family who live in the house in the photo, but must enlist the help of his friends to win against evil.

The 3rd novella deals with Lizzie vacationing near Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park. When she finds a magical whistle and blows on it, she summons a ghost who will stop at nothing to take her to the underworld with her. Each of the stories had suspense, danger, and fun intensity and fleshed out the characters for the next book that I am now very anxious to read.
