It is eight years after the tours from offworld have stopped. High Chancellor Querida has retired, leaving Wizard Corkoran in charge of the Wizards' University. Although Wizard Corkoran's obsession is to be the first man on the moon, and most of his time is devoted to this project, he decides he will teach the new first years himself in hopes of currying the favor of the new students' families-for surely they must all come from wealth, important families-and obtaining money for the University (which it so desperately needs). But Wizard Corkoran is dismayed to discover that one of those students-indeed, one he had such high hopes for, Wizard Derk's own daughter Elda-is a hugh golden griffin, and that none of the others has any money at all. Wizard Corkoran's money-making scheme backfires, and when Elda and her new friends start working magic on their own, the schemes go wronger still. And when, at length, Elda ropes in her brothers Kit and Blade to send Corkoran to the moon... well... life at the Wizards' University spins magically and magnificently out of control. This breathtakingly brilliant sequel to Dark Lord of Derkholm is all one would expect from this master of genre.

Interesting having a griffin be the main character in a wizard school, but near the end, all the other characters from the previous book rush in and everything is tied up way too quickly and tidily. Also, nearly everyone is neatly paired off as if the author had a sudden need to play matchmaker.

She knew, somewhere behind the ache in her wings and in her forelegs, that what she was really suffering from was disillusionment, but that was something she was not ready to think of yet.
