The Glass Magician (The Paper Magician Series Book 2)

The Glass Magician, The Paper Magician Series Book 2, Charlie N. Holmberg
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews.
Book 1, The Paper Magician, was a truly magical read, showing me how that book could appeal to all ages, not just YA/NA. I enjoyed it so much I was keen to get on to book two, which has proved just as entertaining, and I’m keen to read how things finally end.
I love all the magic used here, the paper folding ( Fennel the animated dog – what a great creation, he feels so real), and in this book the glass magic with enchanted mirrors that can be used for all sorts of spells. Once again Ceony is in danger, and the more she tries to sort problems the bigger the danger grows. It’s linked to the experiences she underwent in book one, and poor Ceony really can’t do anything to avoid it. As the danger grows her friends and family get drawn in, and she’s terrified for them. Alongside that is the romance, the feelings she has for Emery, which at times she feels are unrequited and at others he seems to be getting closer. Though this book contains only one searingly hot kiss its amazing how sensual touches and glances can be, and I was desperate for more. Mg Avieosky  has noticed their growing closeness too, and doesn’t approve. Despite there being a lack of action the romance here is wonderful, woven through the book in the way they react to each other, try to protect the other and those little touches and glances. I love erotic romance but books such as this show that its not necessary to have page after page of sex for a book to be full of romance. Done this way its actually better than many of those, as there’s a solid and intriguing storyline backing it up which makes the attraction more meaningful..
I felt “in” the story with the characters, and really enjoyed being transported into a world of magic. It brought back more of those feelings I had as a child when I was convinced magic was real ( and inside I still have a bit of that feeling – maybe just maybe….)
Stars: once again its a five, a book I’d re read and really enjoyed.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.

    I’m so glad you liked these. I just got them from NetGalley and their part of my ever expanding Kindle carousel!

      it’ll be intersting to see what you think of them. I found them really fresh and unusual, and the third one should be out next year – can’t wait. That’s the downside with trilogies for me but at least these are complete in each book.
