'You'll beeee in my heeeeart, yes, you'll BE in my heart...'
March 1, 2018
This book is definitely something a bit different - the author's take on magic (magicians specifically working with certian materials, like paper, glass, etc.) is new and interesting. I liked the heroine, Ceony, and I liked the male protagonist, Magician Thane as well. If I'm honest, there isn't actually that much of a plot - Thane's ex is crazy and steals his heart, and Ceony has to make a trip through it to get it back. So basically she's hanging out in his heart and learning more about him as she goes. I actually thought the coolest part is how she initially, temporarily saves him (read it to find out!) I thought it was a bit odd though that she basically falls in love with him (even though we totally see this coming) after knowing the guy for about 48 hours and then traipsing through his heart. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that would speed up any relationship, but that seems a wee bit fast, especially considering she's a 19 yr old apprentice and he's a 30-ish teacher. I mean the whole premise begs for a romance but she is not initially written as someone who'd jump in to that sort of thing.
It's still pretty cool though, I'd recommend it!
