My Little Pony: Micro-Series: #8: Princess Celestia: 01/03/19
My Little Pony: Micro-Series: #8: Princess Celestia by Georgia Ball is set in Canterlot at the magic school Twilight graduated from at the start of the television series. An elderly unicorn teacher isn't teaching at the level that she used to and the current student-body is starting to complain.
Celestia has a dilemma on her hooves. Should she force her mentor and friend to retire or keep her on but do a disservice to current and future students? Or possible she can find a middle ground?
Of course the answer is find a middle ground. That's the usual answer in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic stories. It's a gentle lesson in respecting the older generations while making room for the younger ones.
This book was an intense and quick read once the initial set up was finished. The book is rather like The Haunting of Hill House where the bad vibes of the house are amplified by the people. Just as there are no explicitly define ghosts in Jackson's novel, Ford's book has a few moments where it could be memory or emotion behind the ghostly phenomenon.
Volume nine features Spike the dragon.
