“She lifted a long-nailed hand and squeezed it into a fist. ‘His heart is still worth something to me. A heart that’s known love is stronger than one that hasn’t, did you know that?'”

I really enjoyed Charlie N. Holmberg’s The Paper Magician, which I received through NetGalley and read a couple of weeks ago. I’m dying to get my hands on the sequel!

From my review:

“Nothing could make Ceony Twill, recent graduate of Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, happier than to become a Smelter, a magician able to manipulate metal. But all her dreams are dashed away when she is informed that she will study under Magician Thane, a Folder, skilled in the art of paper. Ceony cannot believe her bad luck, but with little choice, she accepts the apprenticeship. Mg. Thane turns out to be very flighty and odd, but also thoughtful. When she and her teacher are attacked by an Excisioner, a wielder of dark magic, who steals Mg. Thane’s heart, Ceony must gather her courage and retrieve his heart before it is too late.” You can read my full review here.
