Detalls de l'obra

The Paper Magician de Charlie N. Holmberg (2014)

  1. 00
    Subversive de Colleen Cowley (espertus)
    espertus: The Clandestine Magic trilogy, starting with Subversive, is a grown-up version of The Paper Magician, with more complex characters, plot twists, sexuality, and feminism. It shares, but does not idealize, a seemingly quaint gender-segregated society.

Ceony Twill has just graduated from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined. Her dream was to be a Metal magician, but the stars did not align and she got apprenticed out to a Paper Magician, Emery Thane. Resigned to her fate, she makes the best of it and becomes enamored with her Master Magician and the art of paper folding. Emery has some secrets and when he ends up in trouble Ceony must figure out how to help him.

I really liked the magic system in this book, and Ceony is a strong female protagonist. However, the writing is simple and sometimes repetitive.

A cute YA fantasy. I have been in quite a reading slump lately so this quick, light read is exactly what I needed right now. I will add the 2nd book to my shelf for the next slump that is sure to come along. ( )

I liked the setting, the romance angle (mostly) and the paper creations. This world reminds me a little of Howl's Moving Castle a la Miyazake. The book has marks of an early career effort: some overly florid description and some of the action/quest scenes that bogged down. The good outweighed the not-so good and I look forward to reading more by this author. ( )

Quick and Enjoyable

I am a school social worker just starting spring break. This book provides a nice mental escape from the everyday heaviness of my job. It was easy to get lost in the story, and I finished it in 1.5 days because I needed to know what would happen. I have already downloaded the second in the series, and look forward to seeing what new adventures are in store for Ceony. ( )

The Paper Magician
(The Paper Magician #1)
by Charlie N. Holmberg

Now that everyone else on Goodreads has read this I am just getting around to it! I found it delightful! It's a strange but fresh fantasy. Each magician has to be bound to only one material. Most don't want paper and this makes a shortage. Our gal of the story is then stuck being bound to paper and having to go to a Paper Magician to apprentice. She finds she likes him and paper after all.

Then an evil dark magician comes in and steals the Paper Magician's heart! Our gal then has to save the magician by getting the heart back. How is she going to fight with paper? It's a great story set in an alternate 1900 turn of the century era. Unique plot and memorable characters. Touch of romance near the end. ( )

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. ( )
