A gentle fantasy set in turn-of-the-century Paris, this novel's "magic" takes varied forms--some sorcerous (an anarchist's bomb transformed into a feathered hat) and some technological (an early motorcar ride). Young ladies of good families are sent to Greenlaw college to acquire the social graces and become marriageable. Faris Nallaneen, a young noblewoman, goes to the college to learn magic and upon graduation is promptly dragged into a lively and perilous series of intrigues

"A large step-up from Harry Potter" ..... I think not.
It kept me entertained but at times I found it slow and some of the characters were annoying.

Thank you AmberC - it looks like a great premise (hopefully not spoiled by the big "step up from Harry Potter" claim!)

Quite lovely as an almost-historical fantasy - the comparison with Harry Potter really only goes as far as the "magic school" element, there's a lot more akin to the His Dark Materials trilogy here than Hogwarts. Faris was a frustrating protagonist who did grow on you somewhat, and the bittersweet end was perfect.
