In 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.
This second novel was another pleasant read. There was some thrill; there was some intrigue; there was some adventure; there was even a bit of a love story. Overall this was a very enjoyable book. Not too dark, but not all unicorns and rainbows.
