A most interesting chapter with a lot of intrguing aspects. I do love how Harry's focus turned out to be seomthing exceedingly special (heh, he can't get away from that, even in Silvermoor). Now, I'm going to be real interested in why he was so quickly removed from teh soul magic class, though my first guess would be that it has something to do with his "link" with Voldemort and that some extra-special training is going to be required of him. In any case, you're laying the ground work for a very "interesting" time for Harry and his new friends. Meanwhile, what about Harry's old "friends" at Hogwarts? How will they be taking his disappearance? Mind you, I suspect they'll be taking better than Dumbles and his cronies.
