Throughout her studies, Ceony Twill has harbored a secret, one she’s kept from even her mentor, Emery Thane. She’s discovered how to practice forms of magic other than her own—an ability long thought impossible.
While all seems set for Ceony to complete her apprenticeship and pass her upcoming final magician’s exam, life quickly becomes complicated. To avoid favoritism, Emery sends her to another paper magician for testing, a Folder who despises Emery and cares even less for his apprentice. To make matters worse, a murderous criminal from Ceony’s past escapes imprisonment. Now she must track the power-hungry convict across England before he can take his revenge. With her life and loved ones hanging in the balance, Ceony must face a criminal who wields the one magic that she does not, and it may prove more powerful than all her skills combined.
The whimsical and captivating follow-up to The Paper Magician and The Glass Magician, The Master Magician will enchant readers of all ages.

The Paper Magician books include: The Paper Magician, The Glass Magician and The Master Magician, written by Charlie N. Holmberg. These three books follow Ceony Twill, a turn-of-the-century (last century) young woman who is thrown into an apprenticeship with an eccentric paper magician, Emery Than...
While a strong end to the series (MAYBE NOT??) and I devoured it, didn't find the plot quite as engaging as the previous ones. Loves the experiments with multiple magic, loved her interactions with her family, esp. Zina. Didn't love the show down with Saraj; it felt somewhat repetitive, although it ...
