Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet
Charlie N. Holmberg
Expected Publication: June 28, 2016
Genre: Fantasy
Maire is a baker with an extraordinary gift: she can infuse her treats with emotions and abilities, which are then passed on to those who eat them. She doesn’t know why she can do this and remembers nothing of who she is or where she came from.

When marauders raid her town, Maire is captured and sold to the eccentric Allemas, who enslaves her and demands that she produce sinister confections, including a witch’s gingerbread cottage, a living cookie boy, and size-altering cakes.

During her captivity, Maire is visited by Fyel, a ghostly being who is reluctant to reveal his connection to her. The more often they meet, the more her memories return, and she begins to piece together who and what she really is—as well as past mistakes that yield cosmic consequences.

From the author of The Paper Magician series comes a haunting and otherworldly tale of folly and consequence, forgiveness and redemption.
I loved Charlie Holmberg's Paper Magician series. It was simple, unique and engaging. Now, I have her Followed by Frost in my TBR pile. I'll get to it! But this, Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet? You know how I am with desserts.
