The bones of this story are good, though it is too long and meandering. Some of the plot developments don't really go anywhere, (view spoiler). Some of the characters, like Ollie and Tom, seem extraneous. But Nick is a strong-willed protagonist who ends up in a different, and better, place than he starts. And who doesn't love shapeshifting and magical books?
