A Scholar of Magics

Macmillan, 2006 M03 7 - 426 páginas
Glasscastle University--on the surface, one of the most peaceful places in England. But underneath, its magic is ancient and dangerous...
American Samuel Lambert, sharpshooter, adventurer, late of the Wyoming plains and Kiowa Bob's Wild West Show, has been invited to Glasscastle University in England to contribute his phenomenally accurate shooting eye to the top secret Agincourt Project. The only dangers he expects to face are British snobbery, heavy dinners, and tea with the Provost's pretty wife. But when the Provost's stylish sister, Jane Brailsford, comes to town, things get much more exciting....

This sparkling sequel to A College of Magics is a whirlwind of secret weapons, motor cars, mysterious assaults and abductions, thugs in bowler hats, and a mild-mannered don who is heir to a magical power greater than all of Glasscastle's.
