Happy Wednesday, Aledan Merfolk! I know I’ve been mysteriously absent so far this month, but that’s because I was taking a staycation and reading, reading, reading! But you’ll hear more about that tomorrow – today I’m here with a Cover Reveal. You might recognize the title, because I did a cover reveal for the same book in May 🙂 But the cover has changed, and I wanted to show you the updated version!
I loved the old cover, but this one is so clean looking that I adore it too! Can’t remember what THE PAPER MAGICIAN is about? Have a blurb:
Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the TagisPraff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she’s bonded to paper, that will be her only magic…forever.
Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined—animating paper creatures, bringing stories to life via ghostly images, even reading fortunes. But as she discovers these wonders, Ceony also learns of the extraordinary dangers of forbidden magic.
An Excisioner—a practitioner of dark, flesh magic—invades the cottage and rips Thane’s heart from his chest. To save her teacher’s life, Ceony must face the evil magician and embark on an unbelievable adventure that will take her into the chambers of Thane’s still-beating heart—and reveal the very soul of the man.
