characters & the type of stories / story lines he writes. BUT (everyone knew that was coming didn't they) I do feel he's writing too many, too fast.
He has several continuing storylines going at the moment & most of the recent ones are showing signs of staleness & lack of development. This one is a particular example of that trend. I, like most readers of this genre, are aware of the writers that just go on & on & on into book 12-13-14-15 etc of the same story, the ones that never end & become just plain boring (the marvellous Bujold being one of few exceptions) & I worry that Chris may be drifting into this trap. I still like most of his books, but I find that I've started jumping some of them. i.e book 6 doesn't sound much "cop" so I go straight to book 7 etc. Christopher, please don't stop writing, your often a rock in a sea of mediocrity, but even rocks can get worn down.
The heroine displays an awful amount of insecurity in this volume - I'm guessing to act as a counterpoint in later novels where she "grows up", but thankfully avoids falling into the trap of being either too nice or too nasty (though she does need to grow some metaphorical balls). You almost get the feeling everything is being set up so Emily has a solid base of people she can call on when the smelly stuff starts flying.
She's getting there and hopefully Mr Nuttall will keep the series going.
I haven't given a perfect score because there are some issues with editing that could be tackled but otherwise each book is interesting, engaging, and Emily is a very interesting, dynamic, and real main character who is easy to identify and easy to like. I love how the majority of the main characters are women all with their own separate personalities and agendas. I would definitely recommend these books to a young adult interested in magic schools, adventure, and well-written characters.
