How can no one have reviewed this yet? This is one of my favorite YA books of all time and I have found myself re-reading it at frequent intervals. It tells the story of Malka, a short-tempered, magic-filled creature running away from her vicious master. For most of this book, you don't know quite what Malka is. She's not human, but what is she? I figured it out before the big reveal, but I didn't know for half the book and was quite intrigued by the puzzle that is Malka. I thought this was much [...]
I don't know what it is about these little books, but they're way more entertaining than they have any right to be with such pink covers. Maybe it's the no-bullshit, unforgiving, prickly attitude of their female protagonists, or the casual, almost backhanded way that information about the setting and backstory is dropped. I've read Nameless Magery multiple times, and have a feeling this will be a repeater, too. Recommended without reservations.
a really fun little book about Malka, who is not what she seems, who is running away from her Master, and has magic. You will like it if you give it a try.
It's unusual to be really really sad that you've finished a book. But I am. Because this was the second book by Turner that I've read - and those are the only two she's published. Moreover, her website surely does not get one's hopes up: "No, the next book is not going to be out soon."Both this and her other book, which I read just about a year ago, 'Nameless Magery,' are really fun, enjoyable science-fantasy, with non-stereotypical feisty heroines. Both books take place in the same universe (an [...]
I only vaguely remember this book and want to re-read it, but the main character really stuck in my head. Unusual main characters who aren't picture-perfect usually do, and that is this character. When I read it again, I will update my review, but what I do remember of it allows me to say that it is a good book and I recommend it. ^_^
This is not a dumb cookie cutter fantasy! It's intelligent, hugely quirky, surprising and a good read. The twists and turns are unexpected, and I just love the two main characters as they are equally brilliant and cranky.
I have to say, this book is a bit of a mess. The world building was not sufficent (and prior knowledge from the first book didn't help much).I think I would have liked the book if it were longer and contained the background needed to support the story and characters.
Not as good as the first one for sure; the title character is not as deep, or as fun.
