Can't Wait Wednesday - The Last Magician

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Genre: Young Adult / Fantasy
Pages: 512

In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she's been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta's training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

Why I'm waiting: The cover was the first thing I noticed, it's amazing. Add to that a female theif, magic, and time travel, sounds right up my alley!


  1. I haven't seen this one around in a while. For a long time, it was getting a lot of hype. Hope you love it!

  2. Wow! That cover looks amazing! Great pick!
