This series started of really nice with the Paper Magician, but in this third book, The Master Magician, Ceony seriously started to annoy me. Her tricks maybe weren’t exactly new – rushing into danger and just hoping that everything will work out in the end just to name something – but I would have expected her to have some growth in the series. After all, she is about to finish her apprenticeship.
She is rather a bit too special, with her figuring a way around one of the main points of the magic system – being bound to a certain type of material. This however, is only the side quest in this novel, which was sort of a shame because the real villain wasn’t so interesting.
Still, it was a nice and quick read – a snackbook I would call it. And I really liked the idea of transferring magic into paper by origami.
