a cute story about magic


This is a great story about an alchemist who wakes up from a spell and 200 years have gone by. She is trying to figure out how the world works and not let anything know what happened to her. This story does a great job in showing how the spell affected her, and the reasons she is trying to have a calm life.

The world building and magic in this series is quite interesting and I think the author did a great job in weaving it together, and it all made sense. The second book is already out and I am excited to read it!

Definitely check it out if you like Japanese-style fantasy! Or fantasy in general!

Slice of life fantasy

by -

I think this was a good book, the main issue I had was how little conflict there seemed to be. I'm not entirely sure why Mariela has to hide that she can make potions, they make it seems like potentially people would take advantage of her or something but nobody that she interacts with is like that. If anything her not revealing her abilities seems like it's going to make her life a lot worse if anyone finds out since she could be helping people now and is simply choosing not to.

The book is very relaxing though and we get to just sit back and read about a normalish girl just kind of living a slow life in a fantasy setting.
