The Glass Magician

glass magicianIn Charlie N. Holmberg’s second novel in the Paper Magician series Ceony Twill has returned to her studies under a recovered Magician Emory Thane and has a greater interest than just his paper magic.  In The Glass Magician Twill enlists the help of a Gaffer (bonded to glass) in order to pursue Grath Cobalt, a man who she knew to be pursuing her and prepared to do her and her loved ones harm.  Rather than sit back and wait she decides to go on the offensive.  Though she is smart, she is young and may have underestimated the evil of Grath Cobalt…and the consequences could be deadly.

The Paper Magician

The Paper Magician paper magicianis perhaps Harry Potter meets Mary Poppins without so much of the Poppins.  This is the first in the Paper Magician Series where we meet Ceony Twill and bright, young graduate looking forward to her magician apprenticeship.  Coming from a rather poor family Ceony has had to work extra hard to complete her studies in only one year and before her scholarship ran out.  She has dreamed of “bonding” to metal and becoming a Smelter for years and looked forward to meeting her Magician though things didn’t go as she had planned.
