The Darkling Thrush - Josh Lanyon

Josh Lanyon in his usual goodness. There was one thing I found hard to believe

(that the MC took so long to figure out the book was inside the tomb - it seemed pretty obvious)

, but otherwise, this was an interesting and well-written story. I liked the main characters

(although I still have doubts about Septimus, I couldn't forget how patronising he was at the beginning)

and the setting, so I hope there'll be more books set in the same universe.

The romance doesn't exactly look promising, since Septimus is Colin's superiour, and also because Colin is only there for an exchange program, but I hope it'll be solved somehow.
