USS Cecily: A Paper Ship

This blog navigates my reading- from projects like reading through the "horrid novels" mentioned in "Northanger Abbey" to random books that have wandered through the bookstore I work at to my latest dive into the wonderful world of Young Adult novels and beyond!

The Spirit Lens: A Novel of the Collegia Magica

The Spirit Lens - Carol Berg I think this book would have been better or me if I had liked the narrator. The mystery elements, the fantasy, and all other elements of genre fiction were all stellar, I just could not get into Portier's narrative.

I came across this book by way of an internet friend who swears by the series and I confess I did not go in with high expectations. However, the moment the trio (Portier, Illario, Dante) was formed and I knew more about the world... I wanted to know more and more and more.

Would I recommend this book to a friend? On it's own, no, but for it's place in the series... definitely.
