After all the hype about this book and all the reviews saying how beautiful it was, I was underwhelmed. Maybe it was a case of too-high expectations, but while it was well written, the characters felt flat and one dimensional, and the plot boiled down to little more than a murder-mystery with a pretty unsatisfying ending. It was a neat premise, the school for children suffering the after effects of beong engaged in magical quests in other worlds, and I would have loved to simply learn more about that world and all the various types of magical worlds-- than to just follow the murder mystery seen through the eyes of a not very interesting protagonist.
