And just to go on, C. Chant realizes that he has been arrogant and letting out
his desparation and bad mood on others (like his poor teacher in Chrstomanci

That would be Page? What a pity, I thought about giving the "Protector of the
Small" series a try... After finding the Windig Circle or whatever it was called

to be really interesting.
