Magic Study by Maria V Snyder
Completing her apprenticeship could prove deadly...With an execution order on her head, Yelena has no choice but to escape to Sitia, the land of her birth. With only a year to master her magic - or face death - Yelena must begin her apprenticeship and travels to the Four Towers of the Magician's Keep.But nothing in Sitia is familiar. Not the family to whom she is a stranger. Not the unsettling new facets of her magic. Nor the brother who resents her return. As she struggles to understand where she belongs and how to control her rare powers, a rogue magician emerges - and Yelena catches his eye.Suddenly she is embroiled in battle of good against evil. And once again it will be her magical abilities that will either save her life...or be her downfall.
“You know your life is bad when you miss your days as a poison taster”
The second instalment from Maria V.Snyder “Poison Study,” is even more riveting.
As we continue the journey with Yelena and her mission to discover where she belongs, readers are thrown into a parallel universe full of mystery and magic.
Discovering her family heritage, Yelena is thrown into a world where living amongst the trees is normal and finds that swinging from one tree to another like a monkey are life skills she will find useful.
As Yelena continues her trials of fitting in, she is taken to study Magic with the Four Magicians. In her studies, Yelena learns that rules are set but some rules should not apply to a new apprentice.
Her desire for old friends, and her inability to trust will prove to be a shadow falling over her. Torn between her quest for freedom and her duties, again, Yelena must choose which side she is on. Old and new friends will test her loyalties and allegiances.
Freedom has a great price, but trust plays a vital role in gaining ones freedom.
This second instalment will have your eyes glued to the pages and will make you wonder what you will do after you have finished reading the series.
Magic Study is the second instalment in The Study Trilogy and is preceded by Poison Study and followed by Fire Study.
