    Okay, I'm a sucker for imaginary worlds crafted with lots and lots of details. For example, in the prior book (Wedding Hells) author Nuttall has an appendix at the end, written in the form of an essay by Emily, the heroine, about what is known of the history of her magic school, Whitehall. Emily draws on 5 or 6 old texts by historians to flesh out the little that is known for sure, and the many details about which there is little agreement among the historians. Just as Winston Churchill or Mary Okay, I'm a sucker for imaginary worlds crafted with lots and lots of details.

Just as Winston Churchill or Mary Beard do for the history of King Edward I or Rome in 200 BCE. Then, the next book, Infinite Regress (this book), explores one aspect of Whitehall tangentially mentioned in the essay. Of course, Nuttall does the necessary well: he makes me care about what happens to the MCs and twists the plot enough that I don't know what is coming next. Caution: Start this series at the beginning, with the book Schooled in Magic.

    The second arc in the Schooled in Magic series begins with this book, and I'm pleased to say that it has continued in the same exciting and positive vein as the first eight books have done. Good stuff. Very interesting and engaging. I'm really going to miss the characters when this is all eventually over. In this case, the book ends on a cliffhanger of sorts, but thankfully the next book is expected within the next month, so I shouldn't have to wait long to continue.

    This is a very good addition to the Schooled in Magic series from one of my favorite authors, Christopher Nuttall. Emily is back in school which is my preferred setting, so far at least, for these books. It is well written as one would expect from Christopher Nuttall and there is plenty of mysteries, action and things in general going on. As stated in the book blurb the new Grandmaster is not very keen on having Emily at the school.

Emily is back in school which is my preferred setting, so far at least, for these books. It is well written as one would expect from Christopher Nuttall and there is plenty of mysteries, action and things in general going on. As stated in the book blurb the new Grandmaster is not very keen on having Emily at the school. He is not really a bad person though and he does seem to come around a bit as the story progresses. Actually there is not really true bad guy in this book. The threat that Emily faces, apart from the usual troubles with boyfriend, other students and the workload, is whatever dark secret is hidden below Whitehall and the nexus point itself. A secret that Professor Locke is determined to unlock by venturing into the old, blocked off, tunnel network below Whitehall. To no one’s surprise Emily, together with a friend, ends up being his assistant and, again to no one’s surprise, Professor Locke’s fumbling around sets events in motion that might have dire consequences for Whitehall and everyone within its walls. One thing that annoyed me in the book was the utter stupidity of Professor Locke. He is supposed to be a professor at Whitehall and properly schooled in magic yet he fumbles around like an extra in red t-shirt touching everything he sees. That is probably the only negative point I can make about this book. It was a joy to read and I could hardly put it down once I started reading it. Well actually there is one more minor detail. The book ends in a HUGE cliffhanger. Luckily I am a bit behind with my book reading so the next instalment, Past Tense, is already published, purchased and sitting on my tablet.

    Whitehall comes unraveled in Schooled in Magic's ninth book Infinite Regress. We've known for some time that Whitehall is like the TARDIS. That is, much bigger on the inside than on the outside. Like Hogwarts, the corridors change (such as the famous moving stairways at Hogwarts). But this time, the tutors & students become trapped inside with no way to contact the outside world (much less bring in supplies like food, etc.). By book nine, Emily is on the verge of expulsion.

That is, much bigger on the inside than on the outside. Like Hogwarts, the corridors change (such as the famous moving stairways at Hogwarts). But this time, the tutors & students become trapped inside with no way to contact the outside world (much less bring in supplies like food, etc.). By book nine, Emily is on the verge of expulsion. She returns to school as a "probationary" student. She and another girl (also on probation) are assigned to assist Professor Locke who wants to explore the tunnels under Whitehall. Anybody seeing any problems with this idea? (Like, don't fix it if it is not broken and leaving well enough alone??) Also, Emily's closest friends have left the school. Most students just take four years and then go on with the rest of their lives. Fifth and Sixth Years are more like graduate school. Fortunately, Emily's boyfriend Caleb is a fellow Fifth Year student. Former rival Melissa has also returned for Fifth Year, even though she got married after Fourth Year. (Emily and Melissa had gotten off to a bad start in their earlier years but become a little closer in Fifth Year.) Another highly satisfying read! I was surprised, though, that it ended on a cliffhanger, though. The author actually apologized for this in an Afterward. This is the only novel that took two books to tell the entire story. So, the second half of Infinite Regress is book ten Past Tense. Starting again with Book Eleven, the story will be contained within the one novel. That said, I strongly recommend the entire Schooled in Magic fantasy series for those who like a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court approach to wizard school fantasy.

    So another great book in the series, although there were a couple of parts that I didn't appreciate, like the use of the F word! What the heck, the book doesn't really have much bad language in it, but when the author throws in a random F word, it's just frustrating, because it just seems so out of place. He has done this in the last few books as well, definitely detracts from the story. Otherwise, great development of the story and love the world that this takes place in. It's a fun read and ex So another great book in the series, although there were a couple of parts that I didn't appreciate, like the use of the F word!

    Any book that keeps me reading well into the night oblivious to time deserves 5 stars. The bridge to the next book is telegraphed constantly through this one. I was expecting a cliffhanger that would take books to resolve, but the major story arc of this book is resolved. (I hate when I rely on an author actually finishing his books though I haven't checked if this multi-book arc is fully complete. On to the next!

    This book has the two things I really hate in a book - ridiculous and unnecessary romance and (view spoiler)[. at the end time travel. (hide spoiler)] but Christopher Nuttall is such a good author I still had to give this book 5 stars. As I have said before I hate Caleb and feel this pathetic character really detracts from the reading experience. Frieda is pretty good though and that new girl who is on probation with Emily.

    Ok read, though some of my (view spoiler)[skepticism about Voids ring is turning up again here (hide spoiler)] and the ending was quite predictable. Won't stop me from reading the rest of the series though. Most of the books (especially the latter ones) have been addictive while I read them, and then afterwards, I can't really remember anything much happening there.

    Standard good form for this series. Was a bit worried that we'd slip into time travel territory with this novel, but we didn't, however we also didn't break new ground, same basic plot to the others. (view spoiler)[However at the end we find out that it's going to be a time travel book next, so... meh not so much looking forward to that. (hide spoiler)] Standard good form for this series.

    Probably one of the better of this series. It does take a step back and you start seeing Emily's character over analyzing and over thinking every breath she takes (basically) towards the end of the book. And the story, though it does move forward here, doesn't actually end. It finishes with a cliffhanger that leaves the story feel unresolved. Probably one of the better of this series.

    super crazy... make sure you have access to book 10 past tense soon after you finish this one. Its one of those supposed to be one big book but needed to be divided into 2 separate ones. Very climactic!

    The details of the magic world are amazing, but this time even I lost track of what Emily did near the end, and will have to re-read it. I think I finally need a break, have been drinking these in, one after another ;-).

    I usually despise cliffhanger books. I have loved this series because it did not indulge in them. I gave it three stars because it is a strong tale and I can see how it fits in the overall arc.

    Talk about a twist Oh my god, the series is getting better by every book. I really can't wait for the continuation to this book to find out what happens to Emily.

    Even though this is ninth (!) installment of the series, it seems to have some plots points that the author's been sitting on ever since finishing the very first book. Either that or he's good at making stuff up to fill in plot holes. If it's the former case, he should be commended for his patience; if it's the latter, I can only shrug my shoulders. I imagine it's not easy to make a series about a magic boarding school stay fresh and relevant, but Chris does it even in the main character's fifth Even though this is ninth (!) installment of the series, it seems to have some plots points that the author's been sitting on ever since finishing the very first book.

I imagine it's not easy to make a series about a magic boarding school stay fresh and relevant, but Chris does it even in the main character's fifth school year. It's too bad the story isn't as compelling or suspenseful as previous entries. Although exploring the history of the Whitehall magic school is interesting, the author gives a huge clue to an upcoming plot twist early on and thus limits the sense of mystery. Emily, the main character, is also once again butting heads with authority figures, but there's not enough passion and outrage behind it this time around. There's also a whodunit mystery that ultimately acts as mere filler. I'll admit, I incorrectly guessed who was "doing it," but as it is, it made me simply shrug. I think I preferred it when Emily went through Martial Magic class, kicking butt and taking names (even though she hardly kicked any butt). Still, "Infinite Regress" was fun, and I can hardly wait for the next installment which will finish the 'story arc" that has Emily ... I dunno, putting her name in the Goblet of Fire or something.

    A disaster that they shouldn't be able to blame on Emily, August 4, 2016 Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Infinite Regress (Schooled in Magic Book 9) (Kindle Edition) This is really the first part of a two part story concluded in book 10. Emily is more mature and able in this book, making for better reading. The impulsive idiot in this story is one of the teachers instead of Emily.

    the author said in the afterword of book 7 that Emily was gonna start to stand up for herself but i aint seeing that yet... Anyways: The book was great, Emily started to change (selfcontrol) and hints over the book came to one amazing cliffhanger so i cant wait for the next book (and its on the way to get published next month already!!!)
