Description

Throughout her studies, Ceony Twill has harbored a secret, one she's kept from even her mentor, Emery Thane. She's discovered how to practice forms of magic other than her own - an ability long thought impossible.

While all seems set for Ceony to complete her apprenticeship and pass her upcoming final magician's exam, life quickly becomes complicated. To avoid favoritism, Emery sends her to another paper magician for testing, a Folder who despises Emery and cares even less for his apprentice. To make matters worse, a murderous criminal from Ceony's past escapes imprisonment. Now she must track the power-hungry convict across England before he can take his revenge. With her life and loved ones hanging in the balance, Ceony must face a criminal who wields the one magic that she does not, and it may prove more powerful than all her skills combined.

The whimsical and captivating follow-up to The Paper Magician and The Glass Magician, The Master Magician will enchant readers of all ages.

An endearing, enchanting culmination to the series

Charlie Holmberg is a masterful literary tight-rope walker; she has written that fine line between fierce vs. frenetic, endearing vs. cloying, inventive vs. a show-off and clear headed vs. cold-hearted. The main protagonist is an almost ideal character in that she doesn't come off as a constructed character at all. She is clear headed, except when it comes to her own safety. She is brilliant except for some moments of her own relationships. She is brave, physically and emotionally, but not (usually) brash. She is not perfect, thank goodness. She can be impatient. Her feisty temper can flare; it is all too easy to push her buttons. She is less self-focused than Katniss or Bella, more aware than Triss or Clary and less annoying than Hermione (at least at the beginning of the HP series). She has heart, grit and talent. In short, the perfect protagonist (made better by not being perfect). I really like Emery as well, but he leans a little too much toward the perfect side; of course, this comes from the perspective of a guy who knows he doesn't live up to anything like Magician Thane. Ms. Holmberg draws their relationship and the series to a delightful culmination in The Master Magician.

As is my wont, I went between the Kindle and Audible versions of the book. Amy McFadden conveys the care and confidence of Emery, the pragmatism of Mg. Patrice Aviosky and the awkward infatuation of Bennet Cooper. Immersed within the spell of her voice, you can easily visualize Bennet's shyness, puppy-dog look and melancholic knowledge that he isn't really making any headway with Ceony. Her male voices are great, she keeps consistent, perfect inflection within each character and always keeps the attention on the story, not her narration. Absolutely spot-on. If you like audiobooks, this is one you'll want to get.

Great ending to a great trilogy

Loved this series. Fell in love with the MCs, their world, and their story. I hope there's a spinoff series in the future. Something a la Prudence by Gail Carriger. That would make it even better.

Perfect End.

Again, a wonderful story full of suspense, detail, and magic. The ending, of course, was perfect.

The second and this last book has much more romance the the first, but it's the sweet kind. There's certainly other things in the story that adds a good plot, so I don't mind. Plus, no crazy love triangles! Just a good adventure with a bit of honest love, a combination I can appreciate. I feel this could be something other fantasy novels could learn from. ;)

Wish there had been an epilogue, but it wasn't necessary. The end seems final, but I would love it if the story continued years down the road - I always hate for the adventure to end, especially with such a unique world.

As to the performance, the narrator upped her game here! I guess she listened to the cries of the other reviewers and softened her voice just a touch with a slower pace. At first I wanted the familiar pacing that I had grown accustomed to, but the change was certainly an improvement - I rarely had to replay the story to catch what was going on this time (something I did often in the previous books). Nice job!

Overall, I am pleased (and secretly hoping for more from this fantastical world).

A dramatic ending to the trilogy

All three books in this series have held my attention throughout. The quality has, I felt, lessened - but not enough to give this finale less than four stars.

A good finale to a very enjoyable trilogy.

book

the narrator's voice is a bit annoying at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. this book is a lot of fun, good plot and the author has a great imagination. definitely would recommend this series if you like cheesy, clean romance
