Review: The Glass Magician


The Glass Magician
The Glass Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Book description:

Three months after returning Magician Emery Thane’s heart to his body, Ceony Twill is well on her way to becoming a Folder. Unfortunately, not all of Ceony’s thoughts have been focused on paper magic. Though she was promised romance by a fortuity box, Ceony still hasn’t broken the teacher-student barrier with Emery, despite their growing closeness.

When a magician with a penchant for revenge believes that Ceony possesses a secret, he vows to discover it…even if it tears apart the very fabric of their magical world. After a series of attacks target Ceony and catch those she holds most dear in the crossfire, Ceony knows she must find the true limits of her powers…and keep her knowledge from falling into wayward hands.

The delightful sequel to Charlie N. Holmberg’s The Paper Magician, The Glass Magician will charm readers young and old alike.

Review:

I enjoyed this sequil to The Paper Magician, despite the conflicts that can be found that make the time ~ setting incorrect. I usually get a little anal about things like that, but I found this book to be an easy paced read that I did not concentrate on specifics too much because I was enjoying the fantasy - magic aspects of the story. I usually hate when a woman has her womanly duties (like cooking) or stresses over a certain length skirt, but the descriptions of how dupifferent magics were performed apparently distracted me from any historical type issues.

I was given this book for review purposes (to provide an honest review). The thoughts and opinions expressed are my own opinions after reading both book 1 & 2. The love isn't all hot and steamy which is a good change of pace. I actually enjoyed the innocence for a change.

The descriptions of paper folds to perform magic were very imaginative. I liked imagining an old time England with magicians about and common. The second book seemed a bit more exciting and dangerous, life threatening. I enjoyed her journey through Emery's heart in book 1 which clarified many details about his personality.

Overall a good read.
