Book Review: Paper Magician

The Paper Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy #1)
by Charlie N. Holmberg

Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she’s bonded to paper, that will be her only magic…forever.

Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined—animating paper creatures, bringing stories to life via ghostly images, even reading fortunes. But as she discovers these wonders, Ceony also learns of the extraordinary dangers of forbidden magic.

An Excisioner—a practitioner of dark, flesh magic—invades the cottage and rips Thane’s heart from his chest. To save her teacher’s life, Ceony must face the evil magician and embark on an unbelievable adventure that will take her into the chambers of Thane’s still-beating heart—and reveal the very soul of the man.

From the imaginative mind of debut author Charlie N. Holmberg, The Paper Magician is an extraordinary adventure both dark and whimsical that will delight readers of all ages.

Lori's thoughts: I enjoy the way Charlie N. Holmberg crafts a story. The way she weaves words and creates a world so vivid I can mentally image it while reading. I've read two of her books to date, and while enjoying this one immensely, it is not the favorite. I have The Glass Magician on my Kindle and will read that one next because I bought the trio all at once and am anxious to see what happens next for Ceony.

The only "historical" thing I could see with this book is the fact that it was set in the 1800's. I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, so that didn't bother me in the least. I was more interested in the story and the magical world than I was the time period the book was set in.
