I thought I had read all of the Chrestomanci books, but I sure didn't remember any of the details from this one. Luckily they are available in downloadable audio format from my library and I decided to make my way through the series again. Whether this was a first read or a reread, I quite enjoyed listening to it.

I really like the magical world Diana Wynne Jones has set up here, even if the magic does seem to be a bit too easy. But there are more limitations on it than in some other magical series, so that's a positive.

I wanted to wring Gwendolyn's neck quite a few times through this! I also wanted to give Cat a brisk shake a couple of times to try to wake him up to the realities that he seemed to be completely unaware of. But all of that just meant that I was engaged in the story and that the characters felt real to me. This is a great series to read if you haven't yet - or if you have but it was so long ago that you don't remember any of the details like me!
