The Glass Magician
The Master Magician - June 2015

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.

My two-bits:

I did not read book one of this series and found that it is a good idea to do so before reading this one because it jumps right into the continuation of the life of an apprentice magician and the kind of world she lives in. I was not too clear on the make-up of this magical world, but got a general sense of it later. I will have to go backwards to find out more background in book one, The Paper Magician.

In any case, this story describes the Glass Magician and what is involved in having such talent. Some of the Paper magician qualities were described as well. I would think crafters and those who enjoy origami or other paper-related hobbies would get a kick out of reading those bits.

A touch of romance and mystery are also included along with some evil bad guys. I am guessing book three will elaborate and possibly resolve some of these issues.
