The Last Magician was a magical and exciting novel set in 1902 that featured time-travel, magic and gangs in New York City! I loved the setting of novel, the strong female characters and the way the novel just drew me in from the start!

The characters were great, well described and had a lot of unique and different abilities. I liked how the story was told from different character's perspective instead of just one or two and how each of them react to situations differently.

I liked Esta, she was stubborn, determined and quick to adapt. Harte was a mysterious character at first, but as more about him was revealed, I grew to like him too. Dolph Saunders was really interesting. He was the leader of Devil's Own and had a way of getting things done. I also liked Viola and her daggers, Jianyu and Tilly too.

Lisa Maxwell did a great job with creating a story that is unlike any other, with different view points, mystery, magic and twist and turns that will leave the reader wanting more!

I really enjoyed reading The Last Magician and think anyone who likes magic will enjoy it too!
