Rating: 5/5 stars!
I adored Titan Magic!
It's a very charming book, a little on the bittersweet side though. I'm really glad that I got the chance to read it. I hadn't, for a long time, read a book like this one, so unique and interesting. And because of this, I'm finding it quite hard to make a review that will satisfy completely my thoughts about it so I guess I'll just tell you a little bit of what this story is about:
So, first of all, we are talking about magical creations in the form of humans that come to life thanks to a Titan, they are called golems. These golems have no soul of their own. However, they do have owners (masters) that can control them and are bound to them as guardians. The golems can feel everything that their masters feel, including when they are in danger.
Maddy, the lead character, is unaware that she is a golem, believing that she has been human all her life. From the moment she finds out, she desperately wants to find a way to get a soul. Her creator/master/Titan is in love with her and is determined to protect her which doesn't come easy due to the fact that he is expected to erase her, and in some way, his nature is forcing him to do that. Although, there is another guy who would make sure that doesn't happen (*cough*her pretend "human" brother *cough*)...
Full of wonderful characters, Titan Magic is a very enjoyable read! The only but I could say about this book is that I found it a bit confusing sometimes, I had to pay close attention to get some parts of the book, but other than that, thumbs up!!
