    Beautifully Told

    *voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from NetGalley* Wow. The writing was beautiful, the story was entertaining and I devoured the whole thing in a sitting. Another thing I must point out is that I struggled with getting the reading material provided, and it left me in a really bad mood, but this story was so good, it got me out of the funk. If any book can change your day, it's a book worth checking out, which is something I highly recommend. Esta was an interesting character to follow, and while the whole book's told through multiple POVs, I thought it really worked. Loved the timeline, loved the variety of personalities. The pace worked well with the intensity levels and it just all flowed amazingly. I don't always come across a writing style like this but I suspect it'll soon be on everyone's shells. All I'll say is that it's beautiful writing, beautiful story telling, and a beautiful tone with the perfect blend of action, romance, suspense and thriller. It's a definite recommend.

    Great story

    Rate: 4.5/5 The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell is a Young Adult urban fantasy story set in New York. The world described by the author is compelling, there are always fewer people who can sense and use the Old Magic, while they're hunted by the men of the Order of Ortus Aurea. Those who live in New York, are trapped in the city because of the Brink, something like a barrier which removes the power of whoever trespasses it. Esta Filosik is a Mageus and she can travel-time, but to do so she needs an artifact she has destroyed. This is the reason why she can't return back to her time, so she decides to join Dolph Saunders crew of Mageus. His dream is to break the Brink in order to free his people from their lives of terror, servitude and violence. I really loved the protagonist, Esta. She is strong, intelligent and cares deeply for the people she loves. Harte Darrigan seemed a little selfish most times, but it might as well have been the result of what happened to him since he was a child. He doesn't want to be involved in Dolph Saunders' plan to free the Mageus from the Brink, but he's vital for the mission to go well. The only family he has is her mother, he would do anything to keep her safe and sound, but sometimes it's difficult to help someone who doesn't want to be helped. I loved Dolph Saunders, after losing someone very important to him, he was swallowed by grief, but those dearest to him helped him to keep living. What about Viola? I really loved her background. It helped me to know better her character. Another character I loved was Jianyu. He was intelligent and wanted to prove his true loyalty. The book was well written and I really enjoyed the book. I totally recommend it!
