Download Epub Format Î Magic Study PDF by Ø Maria V. Snyder 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, yet a little self effacing becomes an arrogant Mary Sue cutout, who rushes into trouble even when she knows her actions are idiotic because stupid though she may be, and despite her lack of knowledge about magic, naturally, she knows better than everyone else Even ridiculou 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.

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 books More on that later Magic Study picks up a few weeks after Poison Study ends and we continue the journey with Yelena going off to Sitia with Irys to be reintroduced to her family and improve her magical abilities in the process As Yelena continues her trials of fitting in, she is taken to study magic with the Fo 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 book I felt that Yelena had just one too many defying authority escape from the Keep kidnapping by a criminal torture scene escape using magical powers actions repeated over an over again There were simply too ma 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 Well, I can honestly say that the Study trilogy is quickly becoming one of my all time favourites D There was mystery, action, adventure, fantasy, magic, friendship, family, AND romance This was a wonderful sequel that had me engrossed in its fast paced storylines from beginning to end Maria V Snyder also impressively used her novel as a platform to discuss sensitive topics such as sexual violence and gender biases I applaud Snyder for not lazily using rape as a plot device, but instead shows how it could negatively impact a victim s psyche and their view of self worth Magic Study continues a me 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 safetyRating 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 for her to make some changes in her plans Instead of her making them, they were made by themselves After being a food taster and being trained to be one for the Commander of Ixia, Yelena has discovered she has magic abilities Because of this magic she has found out about herself, she must return home and meet her family to see what they are able to do But even though Yelena knows her position i You Know Your Life Is Bad When You Miss Your Days As A Poison Taster With An Execution Order On Her Head, Yelena Has No Choice But To Escape To Sitia, The Land Of Her Birth With Only A Year To Master Her Magic Or Face Death Yelena Must Begin Her Apprenticeship And Travels To The Four Towers Of The Magician S KeepBut Nothing In Sitia Is Familiar Not The Family To Whom She Is A Stranger Not The Unsettling New Facets Of Her Magic Nor The Brother Who Resents Her Return As She Struggles To Understand Where She Belongs And How To Control Her Rare Powers, A Rogue Magician Emerges And Yelena Catches His EyeSuddenly She Is Embroiled In Battle Of Good Against Evil And Once Again It Will Be Her Magical Abilities That Will Either Save Her Lifeor Be Her Downfall The reason for my 3 star reating is that the last 50 pages are so boring and dreadfull , but what i realy liked was the magic shool setting and her magic , and i loved the connection between her and kiki the horse , and i liked the romance a little bit , but i m not sure yet, because it is all just so shallow, i have the feeling that they barely know eachother , and i hated the relationship with her brother because it was all so confusing , and would liked information for example a better backstory for her parents, sigh , hope the third book is better 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 for Magic Study The narrator was good, although not the best She had great inflections and tone to her voice and never became tiresome.
However, I found her choice of individual voices a great source of amusement Some males had a distinct femininity and some females sounded much too masculine There wasn t always consistency with accents as 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 second half of this bookLiving 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 Yes, the stakes are definitely higher this time Where Y

When Maria V Snyder was younger, she aspired to be a storm chaser in the American Midwest so she attended Pennsylvania State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology Much to her chagrin, forecasting the weather wasn t in her skill set so she spent a number of years as an environmental meteorologist, which is not excitingat all Bored at work and needing a creative out
