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.
Hi everyone!! thank-you so much for stopping by today.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Why I´m Waiting
OMG! I NEED!! MUST.GET.THIS.IN.MY.HANDS!
Yes, all the fantasy books in my hand, please! You all know I go cuckoo for fantasy. It’s just my thing and The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell is DEFINITELY my thing LOL.
I love everything about the premise of this book. One, it’s set in New York baby! New York my sweet home! Second, magic is all but extinct in this world? WHAT!? The few people that do still have the affinity for magic are basically confined to Manhattan and if anyone dares to escape it mean you either lose the power or/and their lives!!!!
Yea and if that wasn’t enough there is time travel and steal magical artifacts!!! As you can see I’m really looking forward to this magical book. It has everything that I look for in a fantasy and I’m extremely eager for The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
