Well written but not going anywhere anytime soon.
Enough already! I've read three of these books now and with each one comes greater mystery and more and more questions without a single hint as to were this story and it's characters are going. I'm starting to wonder if the author even knows. I understand the literary imperitive of an author creating mystery and building suspence but you have to throw the reader a satisfying bone every once in a while. These books are very well written and the author makes you care about the characters but after a thousand pages I'm still waiting for a story. I'm afraid i'm calling it quits at this point. These books just seem to be a never ending story and there is a world of books out there i'd like to read and in some of them i'll actually get to finally see the wizard.Was this review helpful?

This book is geared more towards teens than young adult in my opinion. It's about a boy named Monson Grey who doesn't remember his past or what happened to him on Baroty Bridge. He is enrolled into the very prestigious school Coren University where all the well to-do kids go, including a teen pop star and actress!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

He is named Horum Vir due to winning the Knowledge bowl, something he does not remember winning. But this seems a big deal on campus and brings a lot of unwanted attention to Grey. Life on campus isn't what it seems as Monson struggles with his newfound popularity and trying to come to terms with his memory loss.
The writing is simple and I don't know if I'd read other books by Collin Earl but if you like mystery this is the book for you.
