Legacies , the first book in the exciting new Shadow Grail series from Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill
Who--or what--is stalking the students at Oakhurst Academy?
In the wake of the accident that killed her family, Spirit White is spirited away to Oakhurst Academy, a combination school and orphanage in the middle of Montana. There she learns she is a legacy--not only to the school, which her parents also attended, but to magic.
All the students at Oakhurst have magical powers, and although Spirit's hasn't manifested itself yet, the administrators insist she has one. Spirit isn't sure she cares. Devastated by the loss of her family, she finds comfort with a group of friends: Burke Hallows, Lachlann Spears, Muirin Shae, and Adelaide Lake.
But something strange is going on at Oakhurst. Students start disappearing under mysterious circumstances, and the school seems to be trying to cover it up. Spirit and her friends must find out what's happening--before one of them becomes the next victim...

SummaryAdd a Summary
‘Legacies’ by Rosemary Edghill & Mercedes Lackey
After Spirit White’s family dies in a car accident, the Oakhurst Academy contacts her and tells her she is a Legacy. Which means one or both of her parents went to that school. In their Will they state she is to go there if anything happens to them before she is 18 years old. She finds out it is a school for children of magical abilities. She doesn’t know what her ability is. Students are disappearing. The staff don’t seem worried. Spirit and her new friends find out why.
Plot hole: Spirit never asks which parent went there and what were their magical abilities? You would think she might inherit their skills. This is not discussed.
