    Description

    Wall Street Journal bestselling author Charlie N. Holmberg returns to the enchanting world of The Paper Magician.

    Alvie Brechenmacher has arrived in London to begin her training in Polymaking - the magical discipline of bespelling plastic. Polymaking is the newest form of magic, and in a field where there is so much left to learn, every Polymaker dreams of making the next big discovery.

    Even though she is only an apprentice, Alvie is an inventor at heart, and she is determined to make as many discoveries - in as short a time frame - as she can. Luckily for her, she’s studying under the world-renowned magician Marion Praff, who is just as dedicated as Alvie is.

    Alvie’s enthusiasm reinvigorates her mentor’s work, and together they create a device that could forever change Polymaking - and the world. But when a rival learns of their plans, he conspires to steal their invention and take the credit for it himself.

    To thwart him, Alvie will need to think one step ahead. For in the high-stakes world of magical discovery, not everyone plays fair…

    Amazing

    I got this without reading the description as I've listened to the rest of the magician novels (paper, glass, & master). I was surprised to find that it wasn't a continuation and more of a side line. The book did an amazing job of fleshing out the magician universe. It was very interesting to see both the "real" industrial works and magic. And this book did wonders at combining the two in a very sensible manor. The narrator is great, and I found her voice less grating than the first 3. If you enjoyed the first 3, you'll enjoy this one as well.

    Kindred Spirit

    So much of Alvie reminded me of myself, I loved her! She was very relatable with her quirkiness and awkward charm.

    I am a huge fan of the Paper Magician series, and was excited when I saw this book was coming out! It can be read as a stand alone; however, I found it weirdly entertaining, as if I were in on a secret, when characters from the trilogy would surface in Alvie's story. Charlie has created a charming universe, and I hope she continues to explore it.

    The performance was also really great! I listened at 1.5x speed, so it wasn't completely as it was designed, but I felt like the voice actor did a great job bringing it all to life.

    Wonderful job

    The story is excellent and engaging and the narration does it justice. There is emotion in every sentence without being distracting. Superbly done all around.

    Not bad, a pleasant story.

    This, as the previous 3 books set in this world, is at best an interesting and exciting take on magic, and a very original magic system, at worst it tends to be a bit sappy, and more than a little lacking in regards to romantic relationships.

    The narration is superb.

    Nicely Paced Story

    I really enjoy Charlie Holmberg's writing and this particular series. I think it is a fun, engaging take on magic. I like that she keeps the stories sweet and more realistic to what I know. I like the setting and all the twists.

    I would recommend this series. I would also listen to other stories done by Sarah Zimmerman.

    just ok

    This is not as exciting or innovative as the preceding books. The first half of the story is tediously slow and boring.

    Wonderful female lead

    The female lead is amazing. Unabashedly nerdy, driven, and unafraid to speak her truth.

    Last one, best one!

    A new character from America. Probably my favorite book of the four. Bennet Cooper makes a reappearance as well.
