The Last Magician | Lisa Maxwell
100 posts | 45 read | 3 reading | 136 to read
From Unhooked author Lisa Maxwell comes a captivating new world filled with magic and deception, about a girl who must travel back in time to find a mysterious book that could save her future. Stop the Magician. Steal the book. Save the future. In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives. Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1901 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future. But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

@Soubhiville You‘re so awesome! Thank you so much for all of the goodies that you added to the traveling book box! You even remembered The Weirdos! They‘ll be so excited to have a new toy to play with. I‘ll give it to them as soon as their mouths heal a bit from their dental work from yesterday. Those socks are amazing (as are the treats!), and I think I‘m one of the few on earth that hasn‘t read Simon yet! I really appreciate you! #travelingbook

I don‘t want to say too much, since this book is traveling to several more Littens before making its way back to @LibrarianRyan . I did enjoy the book enough to call it a pick, but it was close. I thought the second half was much stronger than the first.

As you can see Ryan, your book was the perfect test for my book hugger, and Froedrick And I both strongly approve! I like the soft feeling of it as I‘m holding the book.

I love tea, and the notecards, bunny pad, socks, and bookmarks are spot on for me. You‘re incredibly sweet.

The #yaedition #travelingbook is back in rotation after taking a hiatus. It‘s at a restock stage where I need to send the next person in line the rest of the mailing list. But before I do that I want to check that those people still want to participate since this traveling book is a year and a half behind schedule.

If you have been tagged below it means at some point you showed interest. Would you like to stay or exit the rotation.

Soubhiville I‘d still be interested! Haven‘t read it yet. I won‘t have any trouble reading it in the month I receive it and passing it on 😊 3mo

I'm having a mindblown moment right now. If I had a physical book I'd flip back to see if what I'm remembering is right. Does the mentor have a cane?? I know they drew attention to how he stood and if the girl can timetravel who's to say he can't? That his younger self learned it from her who learned it from his older self?! #mindblown #amreading #fantasy #timetravel #thelastmagician

I did not finish the book even though the story has an intriguing premise. I gave up about 60% of the way through which was frustrating because I wanted to know how the story ended. However, I felt the direction the author took the MC Esta was shallow and cliched. Perhaps YA enthusiasts can overlook this, along with some of the other stunted character issues, but I couldn't.

I actually bought this book because someone posted a photo of it on Instagram and I liked the cover. It has all the right ingredients: history, magic, time travel a magician... and it turned out to be everything I expected it to be. And the plot twist was incredible! I can‘t wait for the second one to come out.

Good Morning. It's 8.30-ish in my part of the world. Last day before Summer Time - Daylight Saving time.

I've already #audiobreakfasted and then did some much needed #audiocleaning (the top of the kitchen cupboards - yikes, it looked like I'd never done that before).

julesG @DivaDiane Yes, I'm trying to do the readathon. My cats keep distracting me. Just had to install a 'crow's nest' for Ghost. 1y
BibliophileMomma Good morning! 1y
DivaDiane @julesG Haha! I‘m not doing well at all! We had a whole evening to ourselves (son on a Cubs night hike) and so we opted to was the first part of the Hobbit. And now, this morning, I had my first golf 🏌🏻‍♀️ lesson on the course! Hopefully after lunch!! 1y
julesG @DivaDiane I might have binged on Star Trek Discovery last night. But I've also finished a book before bed. And I promised myself to only read books off my #MountTBR, the brand new galley has to wait till Monday. 1y
julesG @DivaDiane How was golf? 1y
DivaDiane @julesG Golf was really good! It‘s so different golfing on the course! I would consider myself a Trekkie and I know a lot of purists hated Discovery, but I liked it and was inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt. I‘m glad I did. The payoff was grand. Did you finish it? 1y
julesG @DivaDiane Have just finished it. They were tickling my tear ducts in those last minutes. I'm still a tiny bit confused as to the time line, is MB older than Spock? With Pike on the Enterprise he has to, doesn't he? 1y
julesG @DivaDiane PS, I'm a Trekkie, but not a purist. The only show I've had my doubts about was DS9 - but I totally blame that on me not watching every episode and getting side tracked by Babylon 5. Both series ran around the same time on German TV. 1y
DivaDiane I somehow missed both DS9 and B5, just having arrived in Germany. I didn‘t have a TV for a while. Anyway, I think MB is a little older than Spock, but not by much. Discovery takes place between Enterprise and ST:TOS. I know what you mean about tear jerking. 1y
julesG @DivaDiane I wonder how they are going to continue. Obviously the technology fell out of use at some point. They have to come up with more of an explanation, wanting to use a computer rather than an engineer is too weak, me thinks. 1y

My daughter was a darling this morning. I found her reading in bed at 5.20am and she got up soon after.
We had a relaxed morning, no shoe lace trouble, and she even headed to school with the neighbours' kids. 🎉

I'm enjoying the tagged #audiobook and my tea while the dishwasher is busy.
The book is very good @kgriffith.

Yes, we coloured some eggs.

LeahBergen The eggs are so pretty! 1y
Cathythoughts The eggs are very nice 👍🏻. I think that is a Bluetooth 🎧 you have. Just got my first yesterday to pair with new kindle & it is great to be able to listen when dishwasher is on ❤️👍🏻👍🏻 1y
kgriffith Thanks for the tip 😊 1y
See All 23 Comments
julesG @LeahBergen Thanks. @Cathythoughts Yes, I have a set of Bluetooth headphones from Philips, bought them after getting caught in the cord from my 'regular' headphones several times. They are both noise reducing, I didn't want to get noise cancelling ones, as I still want to be able to hear the doorbell or the landline. Only disadvantage, the Bluetooth connection isn't working properly when the microwave is on. 😉😁 1y
julesG @kgriffith You're welcome. 1y
kgriffith @julesG Butting in on this for no good reason — I *love* my absurdly expensive Bose noise-cancelling QuietComfort headphones. They‘re in-ear but not earbuds, and I can turn on the noise cancelling and still hear well enough to enjoy a film in a small theater with poor sound quality, or dampen ambient sound but still be able to tell what song is being piped into the dining hall on campus. 1y
julesG @kgriffith You just said it 'absurdly expensive' - I wanted a pair of Bose or Harman&Kardon, but they were too expensive. I'm fine with my Philips and might splurge on an expensive pair of headphones later - probably when one of my kids has talked me out of my current pair. 😉 1y
JillR “No shoe lace trouble” - that sounds familiar! 😆 1y
kgriffith @julesG Not to be an enabler, but QVC has payment plans. 😉 So, here‘s the abridged story: my partner is sonically sensitive and one need is to be able to dampen external ambient sound. On our first date, we‘re in a fairly quiet restaurant but there‘s chatter and piped in music, you know. They offer me these headphones to show me and I‘m like “okay fine they‘re gre—WHAT JUST HAPPENED I CAN‘T HEAR ANYTHING AND IT IS AMAZING I NEEE THIS IN MY LIFE” 1y
julesG @JillR You know those days where one shoe is laced slightly tighter than the other one and my kiddo goes bonkers. 😵 1y
julesG @kgriffith I'm glad I'm not a QVC shopper. Plus: Payment plans scare me. I'd rather save up to be able to afford something than get it and then run out of money for the payment plan. I'm old school when it comes to money. 1y
Mdargusch I loved those kind of mornings. 1y
AmyG Glad you had a happy start today! And I just love the colors of those eggs. 1y
AlaMich @kgriffith I would love something noise-cancelling (snoring partner and all that) but I need to be able to sleep in positions other than on my back. Can you do that with the ones you have, since you say they‘re in-ear? 1y
kgriffith @AlaMich Yes! They‘re not earbuds, but they sit flat inside the ear. Search for Bose QuietComfort 20. 1y
AlaMich @kgriffith Thank you! 😊 1y
julesG @kgriffith Gosh, they are cool (and expensive). 1y
kgriffith @julesG I couldn‘t work in the dining hall without them. God love traditionally-aged college students, but man are they loud. 1y
julesG @kgriffith Yes, students can be very loud. I used to teach at different universities and now I wish I had had noise cancelling headphones. On the other hand that would have been weird in a language class. 1y
kgriffith @julesG I wore them in my ASL class last term so I wouldn‘t yell at the students who insisted on using English despite being told in the first session that spoken language in the classroom was rude, so... 😏 1y
JillR @julesG or when the “line” on the toe of the tights/socks won‘t sit right and they‘re freaking out, despite shoelaces being perfect 😂. We‘ve just invested in no-tie laces as I can‘t take the morning drama any more haha 1y
julesG @JillR OH yes, the seam above the toes. 😵 No-tie laces here, too. The ones we're using are called 'Hickeys' (yes, really). I actually started this, because I had trouble doing my own laces up (numb fingers) and then the kids wanted them too. 1y
JillR @julesg they‘re my new favourite thing (and her teachers too I suspect!) 1y

Some perks of traveling; an insane asylum turned hotel! I definitely recommend Hotel Henry in Buffalo, NY; it‘s upscale and extremely cozy, plus they encourage exploring! Our group ended up walking around the old asylum at 2 am, but alas I had no ghostly encounters (darn!) I have to believe that the walls are sound proof because I had the best sleep of my life (aka no one else woke me)

swishandflick How cool!! 1y
GondorGirl I always get put up in boring Holliday Inns when I travel for work. I'm so jealous! 1y
Cailey_Mac It was extremely nice I would recommend!!! 1y

Now that I‘m not in a reading slump, I‘m going to jump back into this story! I made it 57 pages in before, and the premise is amazing! Magic, time travel, and a dystopian NYC that traps anyone with magical power? I‘m in!✨

I was about an hour into this Audiobook and I was so confused! There appears to be different timelines going on and I just couldn‘t keep up.

I‘ll try again in actual book format, but for now I had to bail.

Drnkpnkprincess This is one reason why I‘m afraid to try audio books... 1y
Laughterhp @Drnkpnkprincess I typically try to listen to memoirs and such on audio, but sometimes I‘ll try a fiction book and I‘ll either love it or hate it. I get them all for free from the library, so it‘s not a big deal if I don‘t like it. If you wanted to listen to audiobooks, I‘d recommend that. 1y

Christmas book haul!! My best friend gave me a gift card & I put it to good use buying some books I really wanted (as well as my very own Porg) and my sister gave me the complete box set of the Magicians Trilogy by Lev Grossman which I am super pumped to finally be able to finish reading it (I read the 1st one a few years ago).

398.2 Porg!!! I was just telling my husband I wanted one lol 1y

The ingenious workings behind the scenes had me guessing throughout the book, when I wasn't guessing at how it was going to end, I was trying to foresee the future within the pages, an amazing imaginative storyline, one that I could rave about for weeks... regardless of my disappointment at that ending, I still loved it!!!! One of my favourites from 2017! ... Read in August 2017

I don't know what to think of this book. Maybe I'm just too tired but I have a hard time concentrating on the story. It's kinda slow too, I can't get my head in the story.
What are your thoughts about this book?

398.2 I felt the same way. I ended up stopping and I am going to try to go back to it later. 1y
MartinaLove @398.2 Same for me too. I have read so many fantasy ya novels this year that I decided to read something different. :) 1y

Dear members of the #travelingbook #yaedition please look for an email from me.

NovelGirl82 I've looked at this book so many times, & considered buying it. Do I need to?! 2y
LibrarianRyan @NovelGirl82 I say no. But other may disagree. I liked it, but it wasn't a must have for ever and ever for me. It is interesting though. We still have some space on the traveling book if you are interested. You would get it about April. You read and annotate or add to the annotations that are already there and send it on. We have only filled the first half so we could leave spots open. 2y
NovelGirl82 That would be excellent! I probably wouldn't get around to reading it until then, even if I bought it now. 😂 What do I need to do? 2y

LibrarianRyan @NovelGirl82 drop me an email at MissRyanAF @ gmail . Com with real name and mailing address. You will receive the book from @Soubhiville at which time you have a month to read it and send it on to the best person. You do need to be willing to send it internationally but currently we only have one non us member. 2y
Aurora0044 That image looks like the Orin (spelling?) from The Neverending Story ❤️ 2y
LibrarianRyan @Aurora0044 yes it does. It's why I picked this book as my traveling book. I even complain about it in my annotations. The Auryn is a cult classic symbol and to use it on a book that has no ties what so ever. Okay I'll stop my rant here. I've posted it before. 2y
NovelGirl82 Ha! That's what drew me to it, as well! 2y
Avanders Got your email! No worries of course! 💖💖💖 2y
melrailey Can I join in? Is there just one book making the rounds? Or multiple books? 2y
LibrarianRyan @melrailey there are different books making the rounds in different General. I had YA fiction. I do have a few spots open. You would get the book and associated materials around May. Exact dates are not currently known as we get the travel back on track. If your interested email me at the address listed above. 2y
Soubhiville I got your email, thanks! I had forgotten I signed up, so this was a nice reminder 😊. I‘ll look forward to seeing it around March. 2y
melrailey I emailed you. Let me know if you don‘t get it. Gmail was acting weird. 2y
Avanders Hiya! Do we have any updates on timing? No worries of course, just curious ☺️ 1y
LibrarianRyan @Avanders maybe. I was susposed to be sent out last week but I am still awaiting confirmation. As soon as I have it I will update the list. 1y
Avanders @LibrarianRyan awesome - thank you!! 🤗🤗 1y
