Omnibus Book Club Edition, contains A College of Magics and A Scholar of Magics.
The sequel to "A College of Magics," this book again includes Ms. Jane Brailsford (this time as she visits her brother Robert, a Senior Fellow at Glasscastle University, England's premier school of magic). In truth, the book follows a new character, American sharpshooter Samuel Lambert. Samuel and Jane are trying to find out why the new warden of the west has not taken up his post, so to speak.
The story is told primarily from Samuel's point of view, and as such, I felt it has a certain distance from the magic in the story, unlike A College of Magics. The interaction between him and Jane, however, more than makes up for it. It starts rather slowly, too, but if you can enjoy the set up, there is plenty of action in the latter half of the book.
