Review: THE PAPER MAGICIAN by Charlie N. Holmberg

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

I enjoyed The Paper Magician quite a bit. The beginning was a little hard to get into because of the unique, descriptive writing style, but I eventually got used to it and started loving it. I also loved the setting of early 1900s London; it just felt so happy.

The entire middle portion of the book, when Ceony is inside the heart, was a little slow for me. It was interesting to see Emery's memories and wishes, but I found myself just wanting Ceony to get out already and get back to Emery.

My favourite parts were when Ceony was learning to Fold with Mg. Thane in his house. I liked learning about the specifics of paper magic. And the ending: the ending was adorable and really made me want to read the next two books.

Overall, I'd recommend this book if you enjoy eccentric historical fantasy stories that involve materials magic.
