Okay, so I should have read Dark Lord of Derkholm first, but I started this before I realized it was a sequel.

Fun, very quirky, and rather Shakespearian in its ending. She does an good job telling serious coming-of-age stories in the context of a rather silly, yet very well thought-out fantasy world. A little bit all-over-the-place, but it might have felt more cohesive had I read the first novel.

I like reading about a school of magic where all of the students are really excited about magical theory!
