Mae, nickname Mousy Mae, lives on an island that is just steeped in magic. The magic keeps most humans away while also keeping the islands secrets. Lord Prosper is the patriarch of this island and also a wizard and Mae would do anything to be trained by him in magic. Coming up on First Night, a time of parties and celebration, Mae is looking forward to seeing old friends she can be comfortable around. At least that is her hope.
This story is truly magical and I definitely recommend it as a unique read!
This fictional story could not feel more real or leave me more unsettled. The Project by Courtney Summers is a masterpiece thriller revolving around a religious cult and the connection between two estranged sisters. Summers pulled me into this story immediately with her intense and powerful writing. The juxtaposition of two stories, Bea’s being in 3rd person and Lo’s in 1st, was simply brilliant. I want to add a trigger warning for religious topics, some political topics particularly concerning the year 2016, and lastly physical abuse and abuse in general. If any of this is too difficult for you to read about, then I do not recommend this book. Now, on the other hand, if your interested in a thriller that gets under your skin and has some major twists, then I would definitely recommend this. Thank you Netgalley and St. Martims Press and Wednesday Books for this Arc. This book comes out February 2nd this year!
