More About the Author

Jaclyn Dolamore was homeschooled in a hippie sort of way and spent her childhood reading as many books as her skinny nerd-body could lug from the library and playing elaborate pretend games with her sister Kate. She skipped college and spent eight years drudging through retail jobs, developing her thrifty cooking skills and pursuing a lifelong writing dream. She has a passion for history, thrift stores, vintage dresses, David Bowie, drawing, and organic food. She lives with her partner and plot-sounding-board, Dade, and two black tabbies who have ruined her carpeting.

Format: Hardcover
Once again, Dolamore's book got off to a slightly slow start. The reason for this was the introduction of a new character, Ifra, whom I did not yet care about. I wanted desperately to hear more about Erris and Nim, and it was disappointing. Well, thankfully, just like in book one, the story soon took off, bringing me along for a magical ride in its firm grasp.

There are a slew of new folks in this installment, most importantly Ifra and Violet, a spoiled young girl and relative of Erris. Violet could actually inherit if Erris does not survive. At first, I was not wild about these decisions. By the end, I was totally sold. Of course, Violet is mostly annoying, but, one thing I love about Dolamore's writing, is how everything is shades of grey. The characters are all so real, because there are things that annoy me even about my favorites, and sparks of good in the bad guys.

Speaking of things that annoy me, much as I love Erris, which I really do, he was driving me crazy! Nim too. He was all mopey and just wanted to be alone all the time. Come on, man. I know your situation sucks, but it's gotten better, so why are you grumpier than when you couldn't move. Sigh. I mean, I get it, but it was painful going through that with the characters. Even the pain is better than if he was constantly perfect, but I just want him to be happy!

There was definitely none of the "we're in love so it's us against the world with our perfect relationship" thing that often drives me crazy with YA romances. Despite their feelings for one another, Nim and Erris clearly are having some difficulties. Considering the fact that they had only known one another for a brief period of time and under very extraordinary circumstances it's no wonder that some peace brought complications.

Format: Hardcover
4.5 /5 stars.

Now that she's helped Erris gain a kind of half-freedom from his life of mechanical imprisonment, Nimira begins to wonder if she's done the right thing. Still partially made of clockwork, Erris's soul remains trapped in his metal body. Erris begins to grow distant, mourning the life that was stolen from him and the people he's lost. On the recommendation of their benefactor, Nimira and Erris set out to find the sorcerer Valdana who may have the answers they're looking for to finally free Erris. But as they search for Valdana, they discover that there are those who also search for Erris - people who are intent on making sure that the lost Tanharrow prince does not reclaim his throne. When Nimira and Erris's search dead-ends and it becomes clear that Erris's time is running short, Nimira decides to school herself in the art of sorcery, hoping that her fledgling skills will help her protect Erris in the struggle that is to come.

The relationship tension that Dolamore develops between Erris and Nimira is believable and heartbreaking. It doesn't feel unnecessary or over-dramatized, instead there are very real and valid concerns that frustrate both of them. They become distanced and awkward as Erris copes and grieves for all that he has lost as well as for the future that awaits him as half a man. Nimira feels guilt over possibly making his situation worse. She fears losing him and fears what will happen to both of them if they fail. They are in constant close proximity as they search for Valdana, but emotionally Erris and Nimira are worlds apart from one another. During this time, Hollin makes a reappearance in Nimira's life.

Format: Hardcover
Magic Under Stone was just as wonderful, if not better, than Magic Under Glass. Once again, I have to express my admiration for Dolamore's effortless skill at weaving realistic and mature concepts into young adult fiction. Dolamore is a magician in the way she deftly sets the stage for her characters to achieve milestone-marking epiphanies (e.g., when Nimira realizes that a change in perspective can mean the difference between good and evil). There aren't enough words to express the amount of respect I have for young adult authors, like Dolamore, who exercise their writing talents to break down so-called "complicated" topics into size-able chunks that readers of any age group can relate to and understand.

Dolamore ends Magic Under Stone in a satisfying way that both concludes book #2 and leaves the possibility open for book #3, which I dearly hope is the case. I rate Magic Under Stone five out of five stars and would rate higher if that was possible. I HIGHLY recommend Magic Under Stone.

Format: Hardcover
Dolamore's writing in Magic Under Stone is starting to resemble a cross between the styles of Diana Wynn Jones or Patricia C. Wrede and Maria V. Snyder. There is a lightness to the writing, yet at the same the same times the characters are deep and the world-building complicated.

Magic Under Stone is the sequel to Magic Under Glass and succeeds in being both a follow up to what happens next to Nim and Erris, and being a book of growth and expansion for Nimira. It also expands the world more, adding a Jinn character that we follow from time to time. Usually I don't like switching perspective if I have gotten in the habit of following just one character, but I think this book would have suffered without the Jinn's point of view as the way he is under his curse or slavery causes him to not act as he wants all the time.

My favourite part of the story is hands down Nimira's growth, however. Although she is a great character in Magic Under Glass, she doesn't grow too much, her naivety from running from home to become famous in another country still showing. In this book, however, Nimira realizes that she is not the fake trouser girl that she portrayed for years, but she also isn't the "Lady" that Hollin had shaped her into being. She finds herself in this book and I really like that. She also finds her own talents and abilities.

The one thing that annoyed me (but that's just because of personal tastes, other people love this kind of stuff) is the constant drama between her and Erris. Of course it's realistic given their situation and helps to dash any "instalove" issues, but he is just so angsty.

--

I recommend this book to people who loved Magic Under Glass and I recommend both books to those who love fantasy with a touch of fairytale and now mythological influences. I am quite sad that this is the last book in this world, because I feel like it could hold more stories (with different characters possibly).
