Mini-Review: The Glass Magician


  • Author: Charlie N. Holmberg
  • ISBN: 9781477825945
  • Genre: Fantasy

I purchased this book not long after I finished The Paper Magician.

You know how sequels don’t often live up to the first book?  The Paper Magician was so great that I was afraid the sequel would be disappointing in comparison.  However, that wasn’t the case with The Glass Magician.  If anything, it was better since Charlie N. Holmberg didn’t just rewrite the same story with a different scenario.  She also didn’t make the mistake of rehashing all of the details of the first book before continuing the story.  There were short and to the point reminders of past events, which were helpful and always in relation to the current story, and that was it.

There is so much more that I want to say about The Glass Magician, but I have to keep my mouth shut to avoid spoiling anything.  What I can say is that I’m very much looking forward to the final book, The Master Magician.  I need to know what happens, and I’ve been saving up my Amazon credits for choosing the slowest shipping option just so I can buy it.

  1. I quite liked this one too! I admit that I lost patience with Emery’s flip-flopping and what felt like an unnecessary character death, but otherwise I’m excited to see how the trilogy ends.
