Product description

Review

“The everyday setting with just a touch of magical steampunk technology proves to readers what an incredible job Holmberg does with her world-building. Fans of previous Paper Magician books will love this addition to the world, and readers new to it will quickly fall in love with the magic-wielding characters.” Booklist

“Jane Austen meets Nicola Tesla meets Gail Carriger at her whimsiest and it is thoroughly—thoroughly—delightful. The Plastic Magician is a tonic for all that is weighing upon your readerly heart and soul. Take a seat and fall deep into this world; you won’t regret it.” LOCUS Magazine

4.0 out of 5 stars All new magical adventures
By Kristel Greer on 26 May 2022
Alvie has finished her training and bonded with the medium of Plastic. She is leaving America to travel to London to start her apprenticeship in the magical discipline of Polymaking. As this magical field is relatively new there is so much to learn as new spells are created, especially by her Mentor Magician Praff who is a world-famous Polymaker. He is responsible for some of the most spectacular magical spells and Alvie is excited to be working with him.

When Alvie arrives in London she gets lost on her train journey and a young man comes to her aid. They have an instant attraction but she doesn’t know if she will ever see him again. Magician Praff welcomes her into his home and with Alvie's interest and enthusiasm for Polymaking she rejuvenates his connection to his work. Alvie is sent to help in a hospital as part of her studies. She befriends an amputee patient whose brother turns out to be the man from the train station. This new friendship gives her the idea to use Polymaking magic to form realistic prosthetics. Together with Praff, the pair come up with new spells to create a fantastic and ingenious new prosthetic invention. But a rival Polymaker of Praff discovers their plans and makes repeated attempts to steal their ideas and take the credit for the wondrous new application for plastic for himself.

When a final attack comes that threatens their lives, Alvie must push herself to her limits and use all her natural abilities to thwart their nemesis to secure their creation while saving their lives in the process.

🌟🌟🌟🌟. I loved The Paper Magician series and was delighted to read this spin-off story. I liked Alvie straight away as she was determined, impressive and naturally gifted in her magical abilities while having a caring heart. The Plastic magic was interesting as it created plenty of new spells and incredible applications for it. I didn’t find the story as gripping as the original series but overall I loved being back in this world and hope there will be more adventures for Alvie to come.
