The Master Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg

23485372Throughout her studies, Ceony Twill has harbored a secret, one she’s kept from even her mentor, Emery Thane. She’s discovered how to practice forms of magic other than her own — an ability long thought impossible.

While all seems set for Ceony to complete her apprenticeship and pass her upcoming final magician’s exam, life quickly becomes complicated. To avoid favoritism, Emery sends her to another paper magician for testing, a Folder who despises Emery and cares even less for his apprentice. To make matters worse, a murderous criminal from Ceony’s past escapes imprisonment. Now she must track the power-hungry convict across England before he can take his revenge. With her life and loved ones hanging in the balance, Ceony must face a criminal who wields the one magic that she does not, and it may prove more powerful than all her skills combined.

Anyone who loves YA Fantasy magic novels with a touch of romance.


I’m really impressed with the ending of this series. I can kind of understand how people are thinking “Oh, that’s it?” because it definitely wasn’t a dramatic ending by any means. But it did end pretty perfectly for this series. My only qualm is I really wish you would of heard more about the romance between Ceony and Emery. The author could of really capitalized on the forbidden romance but it kind of fell short in my opinion.

Regardless, I felt like the world was really put together well, the magic system was interesting and logical and I’m so happy I read this series!
