I've read this now, and I would have to say it is excellent on the 
sentence-level, but the plot is kind of confused. Not exactly sure what the 
story was supposed to be, and there are all these sinister hints that don't 
come to anything. So I was a little disappointed because College of Magics 
is such an excellently complete story. Thematically I found the book rather 
similar to Bujold's The Spirit Ring - the time setting seemed the same and 
the ideas about metal and alchemy had a lot in common.
