This week, we’re kicking off a month-long scavenger hunt featuring The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell — and exciting new fantasy coming out this summer from Simon Teen. Along with Two Chicks on Books we’re part of Team Assassin — but you can visit ALL of the eight participating blogs to discover a multitude of goodies AND follow the scavenger hunt and enter to win some sweet prizes. (No scavenger hunt clues today – but you can still get started entering the contest AND take today’s quiz!)
But first! Here’s more about the book:
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 1902 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.
