The Paper Magician Review

The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg   

“I know you don’t love me. Not yet.

So let’s introduce the main character, Ceony Twill she’s a 19 year old and from a poor family.  She’s the perfect student and yet instead of bonding with the magic she wants she’s forced into paper magic. Do we get a good first impression of her, no. Ceony is whiny which is understandable but she’s also insensitive towards Thane at first, she’s very up herself – it’s all about her strengths, her memory and skills. Throughout the book she’s always mentioning herself and how good she is at everything and seriously it’s only been a day or two and she’s a pro at paper magic – how believable.

The pace of the book starts of slow and then all of a sudden it’s a race to the end, Ceony just decides to investigate the missing heart of Thane and embarks on a mission to find it, it could be anywhere in the world, the person who stole it is a powerful magician and deals with the bad type of magic, it just makes total sense to go after the heart.

Her reasoning behind going is so damn pathetic. She’s literally met the guy for two days and he’s a total stranger and then after he comes back and gets his heart taken from him he’s basically the love of her life! She was obsessed of how Thane sees her and jealous over Lila and Thane’s relationship and it was just boring and stupid on her behalf.  

Lastly the plotline for the book is weird and boring – it mainly takes place in Thane’s Heart! It’s a memory trip down Thane’s past and I didn’t care for it. It was way too dragged out and Ceony was too desperate to like.
