The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
Ceony Twill has spent the last five years daydreaming of being a Smelter, enchanting jewelry, bullets and cannons but she’s been apprenticed to Emery Thane, a paper magician and once bonded to paper it will be her material for life. The Paper Magician is written with the very interesting concept of magic tied to a specific material such as paper, glass, metal or plastic. Paper magicians make specific folds or cuts to different types of paper to create enchantments and spells. I very much enjoyed the magical system that Ms. Holmberg created. I also liked the character of Emery Thane. He is eccentric and has more depth than the main protagonist. This novel is the beginning of a series that I am excited to continue reading. I would recommend this quick fantasy novel to anyone who enjoys magical worlds.
