Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she's bonded to paper, that will be her only magic... forever. Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined.

I very much enjoyed this book, especially the magic system. The characters are pretty interesting, and the main conflict and how it is resolved are great. It just took a long time, maybe a bit longer than necessary.

There is good fantasy here, but it is wrapped up in a sappy romance. Not a bad romance, just sappy. I really enjoy listening to this series.
