Three years after taking up residence at the University of Din Edin, Sophie and Gray return to London, escorting Lucia MacNeill, heiress of Alba, to meet the British prince to whom she is betrothed. Alas, sparks fail to fly between the pragmatic Lucia and the romantic Prince Roland, and the marriage alliance seems to be on shaky ground.
Sophie tries to spark a connection between Roland and Lucia by enlisting them both in her latest scheme: reopening the mysterious and long-shuttered women's college at Oxford. Though a vocal contingent believes that educating women spells ruin, Sophie and her friends dream of rebuilding the college for a new generation of women scholars.
But the future of the college - and of the kingdom - are imperiled when the men who tried to poison King Henry escape from prison and vanish without a trace. Sophie and Gray will need all their strength and ingenuity - and the help of friends both present and long past - to thwart the enemy at Britain's gates.

boring and disappointing.
A a reader how lover the first two installments of this series I eagerly awaited the last part of this trilogy. As such I found this whole book and particularly the finale very disappointing. the story throughout was boring and the culmination was anticlimactic. It felt very forced like the au TN or didn't really have any more to say and had to kind of force another book. the end, the opening of oxfors.to female students was predictae but done in a few paragraphs and somewhat unnelievable. the relationships, including the Lesbian one were not as well developed as in the previous books , the magic was uninspired, and the culminatinon has a big dose of "Deus ex machina".
