The Plastic Magician
The Plastic Magician | Charlie N. Holmberg
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Charlie N. Holmberg returns to the enchanting world of The Paper Magician. Alvie Brechenmacher has arrived in London to begin her training in Polymaking--the magical discipline of bespelling plastic. Polymaking is the newest form of magic, and in a field where there is so much left to learn, every Polymaker dreams of making the next big discovery. Even though she is only an apprentice, Alvie is an inventor at heart, and she is determined to make as many discoveries--in as short a time frame--as she can. Luckily for her, she's studying under the world-renowned magician Marion Praff, who is just as dedicated as Alvie is. Alvie's enthusiasm reinvigorates her mentor's work, and together they create a device that could forever change Polymaking--and the world. But when a rival learns of their plans, he conspires to steal their invention and take the credit for it himself. To thwart him, Alvie will need to think one step ahead. For in the high-stakes world of magical discovery, not everyone plays fair...

A new main character in the world Holmberg created in the Paper Magician. Entertaining, lighter read in an engaging, creative world.

This was pretty good! I had liked but not loved the Paper Magician trilogy so I was pleasantly surprised to be so hooked by the new narrator Alvie, a Polymaker (magician who enchants plastics) in training. There were some places where I didn‘t remember enough detail from the first books but overall this was an interesting enough plot set in a world whose magic system I always enjoyed.

I. Love. This. Series. This book is a great addition, and I honestly want to read approximately five hundred more books set in this universe. It‘s so good I can‘t even stand it. 11/10 definitely recommend 👌🏼

New character, new magic, new narrator... we‘ll see how this goes...

Already I can‘t tell the difference between when Alvie is talking and when it‘s just narration. 😕

Andrew65 That‘s disappointing. 10mo

Today's lunch & blog post is my version of Nigel Slater's Chickpea, Summer Squash & Pepper Stew, topped with pesto for #soupersundays ???It feels more like summer than fall today, but with the summer veggies & pesto topping, this vegan stew is a good transition between seasons. With a current read, the newest book in the same world as "The Paper Magician" series. Little time for reading today, gearing up for a busy work week. Recipe link ??

jfalkens Looks yummy 😋 1y

This was a fun easy candy bar read. Not as good as the Paper Magician in the same world, but a nice bit of entertainment for the night.

Great little read!

Alvie is a magician from the United States circa 1904, and is chosen to be an apprentice to a highly skilled plastic magician. While this isn‘t a continuation of Mg Thane‘s story- the couple does make an appearance!

This book had all the qualities of an amazing series- adventure, mischief, misdirection, friendships, courage and love. I can‘t wait to see what Alvie does next!

Drnkpnkprincess @TheFunkyBookworm while this isn‘t non-fiction it is a great read. I‘m behind on a few #YAwednesday posts- but I‘ll try and catch up! 1y
TheFunkyBookworm @Drnkpnkprincess haha that‘s okay- this sounds great! I want to read the first one too! 1y

Another installment in the Paper Magician world! I really enjoyed smart, independent Alvie as a heroine.

This is a spinoff of The Paper Magician Trilogy, with a focus on new character Alvie. She is less proper with some more American tendencies but just as smart as her predecessor, with more mechanical inclinations and tends to think before she acts. Most of the time. Alvie & her mentor Mg. Marion Praff developed a great bond over their passion for making discoveries in the newer field of Polymaking. A super enjoyable installment in the series.
