Book 62: The Paper Magician

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

This has been on my to-read list since I don’t know.  Again, I loved the magic aspects of this book, the schooling, the bonding process, the creativity of using the magics but the romance bothered me.  Ceony falls in love with Emery.  Yes she did take a journey through his heart, seeing his hopes and dreams and doubts, but I don’t know it felt forced to me.   It was an obvious choice for the book to make, which I usually enjoy that’s the whole Romance Section of books that I read, but it didn’t fit, maybe it’s the teacher-student thing but I just felt weird about it.  Other than that the book was good.   Lots of action, magic, good pacing.  The magic was pretty cool, we hinted at the other types but the usage of paper and blood magic was sick.  The paper magic reminded me of one of my favorite animes Read Or Die, where the characters were paper manipulators.  And the blood magic, man was amazing, damn you Lira and your cool tricks.   Since it is a trilogy, I hope there is more cool magic to be explored.

Quotes:

“The ghostly images lasted only a moment longer before fading away, as all unread stories were wont to do.” I would totes get this temporarily tattooed on my persona.

P.S. I know we’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but look at this beauty. Hot Damn.
