REVIEW: The Glass Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg

The Glass Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #2)
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.

I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

*May have some spoilers from previous book*
I loved The Paper Magician and enjoyed reading this book as well.
This book was quick, fun, and entertaining! Again, the magic system was very interesting!
This book was wildly different in the way that, in the last book, Ceony travels through Emery's heart. That was one of my favorite parts of the book. I liked seeing more about Emery and I'm always interested in books that include memories and subconscious and whatnot. Now, this book also had adventure, but much different. This time Ceony has the bad guys going after her for revenge.

This goes into what upset me about this book. Ceony constantly makes dumb decisions in this book. I can understand it, her heart is in the right place, but she is constantly putting her life at risk.

The romance in this book is still in the back seat. There's more romance in this book than the last book, but it doesn't distract from the plot. I have a love/hate with the romance. I shipped it, but the age difference bothered me. It's a ten year age difference, which isn't a big deal (my parents have a twenty year age difference), but I'm only two years younger than Ceony and I can't imagine dating someone ten times older than me.

Overall, this series is becoming one of my guilty pleasures. It's fun, the books are short, and the magic system is great! I ship the romance, but I feel guilty about that.
This is a really fun series and I'm excited to read the next book.

I hereby give this book
4 Wheels!
Meaning: It was amazing!
