Argh! I had this almost finished and then my computer ate my review! So,her goes again:
First of all, I loved seeing Nicholas bust Dumble's chps over the stone, especially when the Headmaster got all pompous with his crack about the 'well-ordered mind'. If he'd said that right after I'd buried my lifelong love because of actions he had forced me to follow, I'd do a lot mor than vebally berate the old codger.
Second, I really like Harry's new teachers, and look forward to seeing the interaction between them and the rest of the faculty and student body, not to mention the Druid contingent seeking to reestablish their Faith in Great Britain.
All in all, another great piece of work from your gifted pen. I'm looking forward to reading what happens next!
