Lisa's Take: Magic Study (Maria V. Snyder)

There’s not a whole lot to this book, so it gets just a quickie.

You know Mercedes Lackey? Think that, but a little better, with more enjoyable characters, slightly adult-ier themes, and no goddamn telepathic animals.

Again, this is the second book in a series (what is up with me and that?) and the general idea is that our Heroine returns to her country of birth to learn how to control the magic inherent to her family line. She misses home, stuff happens, she helps people out and starts to come to grips with her heritage. Yay.

Aaaand that’s about it. It’s a good book, and entertaining. Not quite as original and engaging as the first, but still tasty, and easily consumable in just a few hours.

General thumbs-upness.
