This was a fun little book, filled with clever, witty, and entertaining characters. It's set in a fictionalized late-Victorian Europe where magic works and one can go to university to acquire the proper knowledge of it. Our feisty heroine, Faris Nallaneen (the heir to the duchy of Galazon), is sent to one such university, Greenlaw, where she not only acquires magic but becomes the Warden of the North. As such, it is Faris' duty to repair a rift in the world's magical fabric. Along the way, there is an overly ambitious regent uncle to deal with, diplomatic protocol and social conventions to be navigated, murderous hitmen to be foiled, and an understated romance to be had. All in all, a diverting adventure.
