An all-new story arc begins here!

The new Grandmaster of Whitehall doesn't want Emily in his school. She's dangerous, he thinks. The only way he'll allow her to return to Whitehall is if she chooses to be a probationary student, a student who can be expelled at the slightest excuse, a student who has to work for one of the professors. Reluctantly, unwilling to leave her fir

Okay, I'm a sucker for imaginary worlds crafted with lots and lots of details. For example, in the prior book (Wedding Hells) author Nuttall has an appendix at the end, written in the form of an essay by Emily, the heroine, about what is known of the history of her magic school, Whitehall. Emily draws on 5 or 6 old texts by historians to flesh out the little that is known for sure, and the many details about which there is little agreement among the historians. Just as Winston Churchill or Mary ...more

The second arc in the Schooled in Magic series begins with this book, and I'm pleased to say that it has continued in the same exciting and positive vein as the first eight books have done. Good stuff. Very interesting and engaging. I'm really going to miss the characters when this is all eventually over. In this case, the book ends on a cliffhanger of sorts, but thankfully the next book is expected within the next month, so I shouldn't have to wait long to continue.

Oh my, Nuttal rozhodně ví, jak na konci pořádně praštit. Zmínila jsem, že je pro mě konec knihy většinou nejdůležitější? Tenhle konec tedy příběh vystřelil za pětihvězdičkové hodnocení.
(ne že by i předtím nebyl dobrý)
Emily se tentokrát pro změnu nechovala pošetile. Ale na její místo naskočil někdo jiný. A přišla katastrofa. Ale kolem a kolem, wow, jaká to byla jízda. *smích*

This is a very good addition to the Schooled in Magic series from one of my favorite authors, Christopher Nuttall. Emily is back in school which is my preferred setting, so far at least, for these books. It is well written as one would expect from Christopher Nuttall and there is plenty of mysteries, action and things in general going on.

As stated in the book blurb the new Grandmaster is not very keen on having Emily at the school. He is not really a bad person though and he does seem to come ar

Whitehall comes unraveled in Schooled in Magic's ninth book Infinite Regress.

We've known for some time that Whitehall is like the TARDIS. That is, much bigger on the inside than on the outside. Like Hogwarts, the corridors change (such as the famous moving stairways at Hogwarts). But this time, the tutors & students become trapped inside with no way to contact the outside world (much less bring in supplies like food, etc.).

By book nine, Emily is on the verge of expulsion. She returns to sch

So another great book in the series, although there were a couple of parts that I didn't appreciate, like the use of the F word! What the heck, the book doesn't really have much bad language in it, but when the author throws in a random F word, it's just frustrating, because it just seems so out of place. He has done this in the last few books as well, definitely detracts from the story.

Otherwise, great development of the story and love the world that this takes place in. It's a fun read and ex

Any book that keeps me reading well into the night oblivious to time deserves 5 stars.

The bridge to the next book is telegraphed constantly through this one. I was expecting a cliffhanger that would take books to resolve, but the major story arc of this book is resolved. (I hate when I rely on an author actually finishing his books though I haven't checked if this multi-book arc is fully complete.

On to the next!

Ok read, though some of my (view spoiler) and the ending was quite predictable. Won't stop me from reading the rest of the series though.
Most of the books (especially the latter ones) have been addictive while I read them, and then afterwards, I can't really remember anything much happening there.

Standard good form for this series.

Was a bit worried that we'd slip into time travel territory with this novel, but we didn't, however we also didn't break new ground, same basic plot to the others.

Probably one of the better of this series. It does take a step back and you start seeing Emily's character over analyzing and over thinking every breath she takes (basically) towards the end of the book. And the story, though it does move forward here, doesn't actually end. It finishes with a cliffhanger that leaves the story feel unresolved.

Not a good read

Half a book. No sense and logic in the story line. As if there is an expectation that the next book will explain everything. Not a good book in my opinion,. For me this series is over, I won't continue.

The details of the magic world are amazing, but this time even I lost track of what Emily did near the end, and will have to re-read it. I think I finally need a break, have been drinking these in, one after another ;-).

super crazy... make sure you have access to book 10 past tense soon after you finish this one. Its one of those supposed to be one big book but needed to be divided into 2 separate ones. Very climactic!

Enjoying immensely

I really like this series and have been barely able to put them down. Disagree with author on his statement about "Wheel of Time".

Mostly the same as the others. If you liked the others you will like this one, if not than the same.

I always suspected, but I feel that the ending of this book has confirmed my predictions. I can’t wait to see what is in store for Emily now!

Talk about a twist

Oh my god, the series is getting better by every book. I really can't wait for the continuation to this book to find out what happens to Emily.

I usually despise cliffhanger books. I have loved this series because it did not indulge in them. I gave it three stars because it is a strong tale and I can see how it fits in the overall arc.

Even though this is ninth (!) installment of the series, it seems to have some plots points that the author's been sitting on ever since finishing the very first book. Either that or he's good at making stuff up to fill in plot holes. If it's the former case, he should be commended for his patience; if it's the latter, I can only shrug my shoulders.
I imagine it's not easy to make a series about a magic boarding school stay fresh and relevant, but Chris does it even in the main character's fifth

Another great book by Christopher Nuttall. When I first started reading his books, I thought they were great ideas that needed a bit more polish. Well, each book got better and I totally love him as an author now. I've read a few other books in his other series and I really think he is a great fantasy author. I love how this character tries to apply science and magic together to recreate things from her world. The cliffhanger was mildly annoying but the author explains why he had to do it that w ...more

A disaster that they shouldn't be able to blame on Emily, August 4, 2016

Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Infinite Regress (Schooled in Magic Book 9) (Kindle Edition)

This is really the first part of a two part story concluded in book 10. Emily is more mature and able in this book, making for better reading. The impulsive idiot in this story is one of the teachers instead of Emily.

the author said in the afterword of book 7 that Emily was gonna start to stand up for herself but i aint seeing that yet...
Anyways: The book was great, Emily started to change (selfcontrol) and hints over the book came to one amazing cliffhanger so i cant wait for the next book (and its on the way to get published next month already!!!)

Another Keeper in the Schooled in Magic Series

Great story of Emily's 5th year at Whitehall. Don't want to say to much, it'll give away the story, but Im puzzled where this story Arc goes. Hopefully, Past Tense has answers. ( and what about that fairie oath?)

Not my favorite in the series, but this is only half of the story so far. If the 2nd have, involving Time Travel is good, I may forgive the long journey for only a semi-satisfying end.
