Hi, I’m Soman Chainani, and here are five secrets from A Crystal of Time, the fifth book in The School for Good and Evil Series.

Lots of people die, which is no surprise cuz in The School For Good and Evil Series, you never know who is gonna survive cuz I don’t tell you who the good guy is and who the bad guy is.

So your favorite character might get offed at any point in time.

So you’ll have to see who survives this round.

You’re gonna visit more kingdoms than ever before.

In The School For Good and Evil Series, you’re used to being in the school for the first few books, and now we’re out into the endless woods.

And so for book five, you’re gonna be into more unusual and exotic kingdoms than you could ever imagine.

Food plays a big part in book five.

Poisoned food, especially, so watch what you eat.

You’re gonna find out where real fairy godmothers come from.

We’re so used to sort of taking fairy godmothers for granted, cuz they sort of appear from stars and sort of descend and solve problems and disappear.

But in book five you’re gonna find out how fairy godmothers are actually made.

If a character is dead, that doesn’t mean they’re gone, and that’s all I’m gonna say.
