This was a good read, I picked it from the list of Kindle Unlimited books and I'm not disappointed! It's set in an alternate Victorian age, where there are magicians who can work magic with any manmade material - metal, glass, plastic... and paper, hence the title. Magicians bond with their chose...

Hm. Neat story. Cute. The characters? Not too bad. As for the protagonist, Ceony Twill, the reader doesn't learn much about her. One only knows as much as the story allows. In other words, Ceony is not really a deep character. We only know the here-and-now of her. The focus is more on the paper magi...

I got really excited when I saw this book and the next one in the series in the Read Now section of Netgalley. Sadly I delayed with it for very long, and had the file expire on me during my reading, but luckily I was able to finish this one.I was rather surprised when I checked the Goodreads page fo...

(I got a copy through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.)Enjoyable as a fast read, but with a few things that prevented me from enjoying it more. I'd give it 1.5 stars.Because I like talking about good things first: the magic. Granted, it could have been more developed, but I could still g...

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. This review will skew to the negative side of the spectrum, and I don’t write very many negative reviews. Not because I have anything against them, but because I don’t finish books that deserve them...

This was an impressive debut from Charlie Holmberg, introducing us to an alternate version of British history, in which magicians train in a cool, materials-driven magic system. The protagonist comes reluctantly to study as a paper magician under one of the few resident masters of that art. He's pat...
