The Glass Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy #2)

The Glass Magician


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. (Summary and cover courtesy of


This book was a great continuation of the series though it did not quite live up to the hype and action that the first one did in my opinion.  I did enjoy having the chance to see things from Magician Thane’s perspective a few times – particularly towards the end of the book.  The dynamic between Ceony and Magician Thane certainly does not let you down and I loved seeing these two try to navigate new territory with their changing relationship.

There are certainly some loose ends to tie up at the end of this book so I am looking forward to the third book later this summer quite a bit.  Though, as mentioned previously, I don’t think this book was quite as absorbing as the first, it was still a solid read that I thoroughly enjoyed.  I will be looking forward to seeing more from this author!

Warning: Contains some violence

Rating: 5 stars!

Who should read it? Fantasy fans looking for some meat to their stories – definitely start with the first book though!  It will be confusing if you do not.
