Rise of the School for Good and Evil

The battle between Good and Evil begins.

Two brothers. One Good. One Evil. Together, they watch over the Endless Woods. Together, they choose the students for the School for Good and Evil. Together they train them, teach them, prepare them for their fate. Then, something happens. Something that will change everything and everyone.

Who will survive? Who will rule the School? The journey starts here... With magic, surprises and daring deeds at every turn, courage and loyalty will be put to the test, only to lead you to the very beginning of the adventures that are The School for Good and Evil.
