14/Clearly not 40 THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
Genre: Sci Fi/Fantasy
Just Because Book
was magic, and there was magic. Thanks to Guttenberg, I could no longer pull wands, potions and light sabers out of books, but when it came to research, give me a well stocked library and I was god-damned Merlin.
Still think this is a brilliant combo of Harry Dresden and Thursday Next.
This one picks up shortly after the last one ended. Issac has had his magic blocked by Guttenberg and he’s trying to make his way through without the comfort of his magic. He begins researching into the Ghost Army and wants to find his apprentice/student Jenneta. With the help of Lena, her therapist girlfriend and a whole cast of characters both old and new (god, I love Ponce de Leon) they take on the greatest threat known to Libromancy and it may not be who you thought it was.
This was a great addition to the series and was just as good as its predessors. I really felt for Issac as he struggled to find himself without his magic. This one was chaotic and brilliant and a whirlwind of action not unlike Harrys misadventures in Chicago. This one took the adage of good vs evil and blew it out of the water.
I highly recommend this series. 🙂
I had heard before that all stories were magic. It had never occurred to me that all magic were stories.
