Samuel Lambert, an American, is invited to stay on in Glasscastle University which teaches magic when he wins a sharpshooting contest. He was hired to contribute his shooting accuracy to the mysterious Agincourt Project. A Fellow of the University named Fell invited Lambert to share a room with him and Lambert discovered the amazing, peace-giving chants that maintain the University's wards. Then, one day, the Provost's sister, Jane Brailsford, comes to visit. After she arrives, things start happening. Fell disappears and the Agincourt Project develops a sinister side. It will be up to Lambert and Jane to solve the mystery and return things to normal.


With magic, romance, and mystery all combined together, this book makes for a good read. It has beautiful and descriptive language that puts you in the scene. The plot is developed very well, however, some parts of it move rather slowly. I felt that some of the events mentioned were not needed and only lengthened the book. There were also a few jumps in the book from present to past to future that were hard to follow. Even so, it is still a great book and I recommend it to older readers because of slightly complicated language.
