Magic Study (Study #2) by Maria V. Snyder ~ Review by Fallon


4 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

YOU KNOW YOUR LIFE IS BAD WHEN YOU MISS YOUR DAYS AS A POISON TASTER...

With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways—and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

Despite the turmoil, she's eager to start her magic training—especially as she's been given one year to harness her power or be put to death. But her plans take a radical turn when she becomes involved with a plot to reclaim Ixia's throne for a lost prince—and gets entangled in powerful rivalries with her fellow magicians.

If that wasn't bad enough, it appears her brother would love to see her dead. Luckily, Yelena has some old friends to help her with all her new enemies....

Fallon's Review:

This book was such a great read. Maria V Snyder takes issues that are really emotional and sensitive and brings them to the fore front. Not many writers can do this in a way that appeals to the masses. These issues are things that are very real. 

Yelena has found her family but not all is perfect once they unite. This also was something taken from a very real place. Every family member reacted differently to Yelena's return. 

Then there is the awesome Valek who I am so in love with. He is mysterious and dashing. I loved the scene where Yelena searches for all the weapons he has on his body. Valek while in love has not become soft. I can not wait to read Fire Study.

I will say that this is a book for older teens cause there are some  scenes maybe not appropriate for a young teen. I think with that being said Maria did this in a genuinely tactful unique way. The way she approached these issues was perfect. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.
