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!)

Journal Entry 11 by jennymidget at Bellbowrie, Queensland Australia on Saturday, October 07, 2017
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.
