Well, if you are a friend of mine, you would definitely know that I love The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell because you already have a copy because I bought you one! Ha! But that doesn’t end my love for The Last Magician. Here’s a list that might or might not but SHOULD at least make you interested with the book and the series.
So, without further ado. Let’s start!
I. I wish I had the power to read the book for the first time again – because this is one of those books you wish you did. – My Book Review of The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
This book has it all. Historical Fantasy Fiction that dwells with time and I find books that have something with time fascinating and at the same time painful. The Last Magician challenges me. How could we not see things coming? And how did Lisa Maxwell pull it off? That was brilliant. I don’t want to spoil anyone but if you are a fan of a lot of characters that each of them has their own unique personality with magic! You will definitely like this book. If not, you will fell in love. *wink*
II. THE COVER
If TLM’s cover couldn’t make you buy the book, how about a little help with The Devil’s Thief? Still not? Why don’t you try to listen to me and pick the goddamnbook?! How could you say no to The Last Magician’s and The Devil Thief’s cover? I am vouching for that and definitely putting all my reputation to this series because it is one of those books with covers that are really proportional with their story.
III. The characters are pretty amazing…and badass.
You wouldn’t get wrong with Esta’s stubbornness but there’s also Harte that will balance the two of them. Plus, there’s a whole team that going to back them up and going to play with time! You don’t want to miss it!
IV. It is a historical fiction.
Honestly, I’m not really a fan of historical fiction. But that tells you something, right? That I am a huge fan of The Last Magician and not a historical fiction. Meaning? This book is a wonderful book that makes its reader appreciate the art that we have. I remember following Lisa Maxwell, she said that places in here are accurate. She wants us to experience how a book should feel when you are in that place. Totally remarkable, right?!
V. “I think the whole treating other people as you would want to be treated would cover most things, don’t you?” – Lisa Maxwell on ‘If you are going to give a lesson to the whole world, what lesson would you impart to them?’ Read the full interview here.
VI. Diverse Characters
DO I NEED TO SAY MORE?
VII. Gang Name from The Devil’s Thief! My Gang Name is: DUTCH VICIOUS, what’s yours?
VIII. Exclusive Barnes and Novel Edition of The Devil’s Thief!
In this spellbinding sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Last Magician, Esta and Harte set off on a cross-country chase through time to steal back the elemental stones they need to save the future of magic.
Hunt the Stones.
Beware the Thief.
Avenge the Past.
Esta’s parents were murdered. Her life was stolen. And everything she knew about magic was a lie. She thought the Book of Mysteries held the key to freeing the Mageus from the Order’s grasp, but the danger within its pages was greater than she ever imagined.
Now the Book’s furious power lives inside Harte. If he can’t control it, it will rip apart the world to get its revenge, and it will use Esta to do it.
To bind the power, Esta and Harte must track down four elemental stones scattered across the continent. But the world outside the city is like nothing they expected. There are Mageus beyond the Brink not willing to live in the shadows—and the Order isn’t alone in its mission to crush them.
In St. Louis, the extravagant World’s Fair hides the first stone, but an old enemy is out for revenge and a new enemy is emerging. And back in New York, Viola and Jianyu must defeat a traitor in a city on the verge of chaos.
As past and future collide, time is running out to rewrite history—even for a time-traveling thief.
