Wherein we meet Ceony, a young Apprentice Magician who is forced into paper magic out of necessity. There are too few Paper Magicians, or Folders, in the country, and from time to time a student has the medium forced upon them to keep it from dying out.

Emery Thane is introduced as Ceony's teacher. An odd man, whose talent for folding is astounding. It doesn't take long for Ceony to develop a grudging like for her strange teacher, and the medium of folding.

Shenanigans ensue when someone from Thane's past attacks him in his home and it's up to Ceony and per paper puppy companion Fennel to save the day.

This book was lovely. The story was original and kept my interested the whole way through. The characters were likable. Fennel was my favorite and must be protected at all costs. I love the fact that though it's the first in a series, this book had a clear ending and was not a cliffhanger. A fun read and the audiobook was wonderful. The narrator did a wonderful job with the voices and her telling of the story kept me attentive. ( )

I've loved the covers of this series since I first saw them and the concept is really, really fun. To be able to bind to a material and then manipulate it through training and inherent power is an unusual take on a common trope. For this book, specifically, I wished I had been able to learn more about the magic of paper. We see cool origami things I am already familiar with used in powerful ways, which I really liked. Additionally, the idea of power being the underdog seems right based on my understanding of the value I already give materials. I wish more exploration was given to the magic and that's why I'm planning on reading the rest of the series. Not that I don't love the blooming romance between the huge age gap, but the magic is definitely what compels me. ( )

Interesting and creative. Like the unique magic and the problems the main character faces. ( )

I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Ceony Twill wanted to be a Smelter, but she’s placed in a Paper apprenticeship with Magician Emery Thane instead. Emery’s past comes back to literally rip his heart out, and it’s up to Ceony to save him. Along the way she discovers more about Emery than anyone else knows, and that sometimes Paper is the strongest of the material magics.

I wasn’t sure about this one at first, but it grabbed me and didn’t let go. The writing, pace, plot, and characters were perfect. I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this book. I had a difficult time putting it down to go to bed, and if it weren’t for the fact that I had an exam first thing in the morning, I would have finished it in one night instead of two. The book’s version of early 1900′s England comes alive, and I wanted to be there and become a paper magician. This isn’t Harry Potter though, not even close. In fact, it didn’t remind me of any other Fantasy story I’ve read. On top of that, there are two events that occur towards the climax that made me gasp and cover my mouth in shock as well as cry.

Adding all of that up equals to The Paper Magician being one of the best Fantasy stories I’ve read this year, and quite possibly in my life. I’m adding it to my “Through the Magic Door” list of all-time faves (http://thereadingwench.com/through-the-magic-door/), and I recommend it for anyone who loves Fantasy in general, and especially for those who love Urban Fantasy. I’m giving it all the stars! ( )

Interesting concept, promising worldbuilding but...bad execution. The pace is really strange. It's hard to tell if and when time has passed. The descriptions were too detailed for some aspects and scenes, and confusing for others. ( )
