Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine
Hey guys! It is time for another WOW! This weeks pick is one I am definitely excited for and I also absolutely LOVE the cover!!
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
Expected Publication: July 18th 2017 by Simon Pulse
Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.
In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.
Tessa is a talented thief, and she’s been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Tessa can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Tessa’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1901 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.
But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Tessa to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.
Doesn’t this sound absolutely amazing?!? If you could travel back in time, where would you go to?

Wow this sounds like an amazing book! And I love the fact that it includes time travel as well because that is a weaknesses of mine; if a book has time travel it it will automatically go on my to-read list.
