      Maria has done it again, she s created a beautifully captivating story that had you on the edge of your seat from the first page until the last One of my favorite series to date

      4.5 I hoped I d love this book but I m truly surprised at how engrossed and utterly into the story I was The characters satisfied me to no end, the plot kept me engaged but importantly, I loved and respected the way Maria V Snyder handled sexual violence in the story I was so close to giving this the full rating for that alone and in fact, would have, had it not been for one thing that, in hindsight, might seem minor but it was enough to genuinely irk me as it was one of my biggest peeves in bo [...]

      I am at a complete loss I found Poison Study to be an amazing book, with an engaging plot, real, intriguing characters and excellent writing Magic Study begins much the same, until around page 240, and then it takes a nose dive through crazy town To say I was disappointed would be an understatement For a book that began with a five star rating, Snyder had to work to make this book as nonsensical as it ended up being Here are a few of my qualms.Yelena, once resourceful, intelligent, honorable, ye [...]

    4. Tatiana says:

      More like 2.5 stars actually, but I am being extremely generous in the memory of Poison Study I enjoyed the first 300 pages of the book just as much as Poison Study Yelena s relationship with her family and Zaltana clan, the world of Sitia, the magic lessons, the mystery of a magician serial killer and political intrigue involving a contender to Ixian throne all these aspects were written very well and in a very engaging manner However, right about page 300 to 400 something went wrong with this [...]

      Every decision, every interaction, every step, every time you get out of bed in the morning, you take a risk To survive is to know you re taking that risk and to not get out of bed clutching illusions of safety Rating I still have a love for Yelena My love for her just grows because of how strong she is becoming and how much of a better heroine she is willing to make herself I don t think I ve ever loved a female protagonist so much She keeps everything so balanced The only thing I wanted was fo [...]

      Uh uh Uh uh Fluff and hot air, hot air and fluff.I ll see if a full review is worth my time.EDIT 12 06 2016 Now I ve read the third book and I can rightly say it a full review isn t worth my time Pardon me this time around.

    7. Cait • A Page with a View says:

      I m kind of conflicted on my rating because I DO love this world and the characters But the writing is a bit dry and the plot felt kind of recycled here like once again there is a magician raping killing young women And that s just not particularly something I want to read about in the first place Yelena returns to her childhood home after dropping off the rest of the missing girls from the first book She spends a few chapters trying to become reacquainted with her family Her brother last saw he [...]

    8. Nicole says:

      I loved the first half, same vibes of Poison Study Yelena was discovering her magic and starting a new life in Sitia She meets some great and bad people there The first part of the second half and all the events with Ferde weren t so impressive, though It got slightly better with the Ixians arrival and the last chapter was promising I think my main problem was with the villain, a different sort of villain would ve been appreciated since this one was similar to Ryad sadist and rapist and like in [...]

    9. Lyndsey says:

      Considering how often Yelena was injured, captured, and beat to a pulp in this follow up to Poison Study I felt this picture summed it up best There are considerably DOH moments in this book, as opposed to the zero in the last book Quite a few times, I felt myself wanting to smack some sense into Yelena Especially toward the beginning of the book, she didn t seem to be her reliable calculating and resourceful old self.Instead of reading, like I did with Poison Study, I listened to the audiobook [...]

      4.5 MAGICAL STARS Every decision, every interaction, every step, every time you get out of bed in the morning, you take a risk To survive is to know you re taking that risk and to not get out of bed clutching illusions of safety A little less good than the previous book in this series, but still very good nonetheless Either way, Yelena keeps on slaying You go girl I ve been struggling to find books with a female character as badass as Celaena from Throne of Glass, and Yelena is definitely coming [...]

    11. Puck says:

      2 2,5 stars for a book wherein the writer doesn t know how to take her time Oh man, how I wish I could rate this book differently I had such high hopes for the second book in the Study series Poison Study absolutely kicked ass and was a great mix of political scheming, romance, and magical powers with an awesome MC to rule it all The only problem that I had was that Maria Snyder lost control around 2 3 of the book, which I hoped wouldn t happen again But it did And boy, did that fuck up the seco [...]

    12. Khadidja says:

      This was much better than the first book VALEK I LOVE YOU And i want to get an Ari and a Janco of my own, where do i sign up

    13. Julie Kagawa says:

      In this sequel to Poison Study which I loved , Yelena must travel to her homeland to learn how to control her magic, and meet a family she thought lost forever.While I still enjoyed the book immensely, I felt that Magic Study wasn t quite as good as Poison Study The unique sense of danger was gone, and the poison angle, which made the first book so fascinating, was completly non existent Still, it was a very good story, and Yelena still manages to get into one scrape after another Valek makes an [...]

    14. Robin (Bridge Four) says:

      First and foremost I m totally glad that someone told me that Velek was missing for the first half of this Otherwise I would have been distracted wondering when I was going to see him again because he is my favorite character of this series so far.But since I knew that going into it I could focus on Yelena and meeting her family and getting to the school When Yelena meets her family you would almost expect it to be sunshine and rainbows But while many are willing to accept her it is clear right [...]

    15. Sofii♡ (A Book. A Thought.) says:

      I really liked this sequel, especially I enjoyed its magical aspects, which are undoubtedly the strong point of the book Being honest, I feel that this book has taken a new direction, and this makes it completely different to the first book, even so, it was a lot of fun4 5 StarsYou can find this one and of my reviews on my blog A Book A Thought.In Magic Study we can learn about Yelena s past, and we ll see how she has to face completely new and unexpected situations Many aspects of her past th [...]

    16. Caitlin says:

      Many have tried to kill us All have failed.I loved this I ve read a lot of mixed reviews on this series and I ve heard a lot of comments about how this series gets worse rather than better but I d definitely have to disagree I loved this second book in the series and I can t wait to continue on I was definitely scared that this book would have that stereotypical second book syndrome since we wouldn t be seeing much of Valek but that never happened There s still a little bit missing in order for [...]

    17. Chloe says:

      I enjoyed this a lot than Poison Study Cannot wait to read the next one

    18. Tweebs♥️ says:

      I lowkey went into this book thinking I d be disappointed Why LOOK AT ALL THOSE MIXED REVIEWSSS LISTEN, trust your homegirl over here and just go into this book with ZERO expectations You ll thank me I m just super super SUPER happy that it didn t end up being whatever I originally expected I loved this cough alright, let s be real when I say loved this , I really meant Valek, Ari Janco.

    19. Sarah says:

      Your soul fits the void in my soul perfectly I ve no doubt you re mine I hope you ll call me Mother, but if you can t you can call me Perl This was so much better than Poison Study I liked Yelena in this book, she was a strong character, she had multiple things going on at once and somehow found a way to juggle them She did put herself in dangerous situations, but it was always with the best intentions Men exploded from the bushes with their swords in hand But the element of surprise was mine Th [...]

      Almost as good as the last one, so still pretty damn awesome I love this series Spoilers for Poison Study below.In Magic Study Yelena follows Master Magician Irys to the souther country Sitia to meet her long lost family and train to become a controlled magician Once there she s forced to deal with an angst ridden older brother, a delusional aspiring king and his sadistic soldiers, and a killer Ferde who steals souls and magic Unfortunately Yelena has to face all these problems without the help [...]

      5 5 Many have tried to kill us All have failed review of the first book in this seriesI am officially HOOKED, SOMEBODY SAVE ME I AM LITERAL TRASH FOR THIS SERIES I devoured this book in a day and I am in love with this series I haven t been able to find a YA series that has grabbed my attention in years, but this blew my expectations out of the water.This book was entirely focused on Yelena s magic and the magician s world, which was quite a pace change from the castle politics and spy feeling t [...]

    22. Althea Ann says:

      I was quite enthused by the first in this series, and got started on reading the second as soon as I finished it Unfortunately, I feel like I was hit by a case of sequel itis Magic Study was OK but my enthusiasm fizzled out a bit.The story as a whole felt juvenile than the first book, and was much less tightly plotted it s like, OK, what will Yelena do next For most of the book, it s just her wandering from one situation to another As the title indicates, the focus here is Yelena trying to lea [...]

      4.5 Living is a risk, I snapped at him Every decision, every interaction, every step, every time you get out of bed in the morning, you take a risk To survive is to know you re taking that risk and to not get out of bed clutching illusions of safety I LOVED THIS ONE This picks up directly after Poison Study with Yelena going off to meet her family and getting to know her magical abilities There s a lot of mystery, magic, awesome new characters, some romance, family, kickass battle scenes and of [...]

    25. Maggie ☘ (Reader in Wonderland) says:

      Trust, Kiki said, Trust is peppermints Oh, How I adored Yelena s horse Sometimes, simply is the happiest way of thinking.Gimme quirky, magical talking horse and I d be satisfied.I also absolutely adored Yelena s relationship with her friends Ari and Janco They were so sweetly, brotherly protective about her and fun to be around I guess Cahil followed us, Janco said Scratching his scar, he added, Of course, you didn t want our help Now I have to go beat up some soldier just to keep my ego intact [...]

    26. Eric Boot says:

      MEOW DEFINITELY NOT AS GOOD AS POISON STUDY Poison Study was a total winner 4.5 stars , this book was quite boring and flat I think I am going to read Fire Study though because I think it has potential.

    27. Katerina says:

      When I carved this, my thoughts were on you, love Your life is like this snake s coils No matter how many turns it makes, you ll end up back where you belong With me Fangirl mode ON I can t even remember the last time it was off,but you know what I mean After defeating Mogkan and Brazell and under the threat of execution,Yelena heads to Sitia in order to meet her family and explore her magical abilities.Of course it isn t as easy as it sounds since everyone thinks she is an Ixian spy,including h [...]

    28. Anna (Enchanted by YA) says:

      Update 5 4 15 My original rating for this book was 3 stars but after re reading it I don t understand why I seem to remember it being because of Valec s limited appearances however it meant I anticipated, as well as enjoyed, the scenes that much second time around 3Original review 11 4 14 3.5 STARSI ve got mixed feelings towards this book As Yelena is faced with even problems you see her strength shine through even and I know I ve said this before but it takes a lot of character to pull throu [...]

    29. Sheree says:
