The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Paper magic is so out of style, yet Ceony Twill has been selected to become a paper magician. During her training at the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined she had dreamed of learning metal magic, yet now she is bonded to paper. The quirky magician Thane turns out to be better than Ceony had imagined as he unlocks the wonders of animated paper creatures. There is dark magic on the prowl and when an Excisioner attacks their cottage and takes Thane’s heart, Ceony must learn forbidden magic in order to try and save the man.
The Paper Magician is the first book in a new supernatural trilogy. The magic may be dark … yet the reader will find the read light and easy. Holmberg’s debut novel has flaws that many first books contain, but those who make it to the conclusion will want to find the next book to continue the adventure. The feisty female protagonist is easily liked and most readers will root for her as she fights the darkness around her. A good read that will please teen and adult readers alike.
