Review True story:‌ while procrastinating the writing of my review for Truly Devious, I started writing a TL;DR for The Vanishing Stair, which I had immediately jumped into after finishing Book 1.

    1. The Maltese Falcon, Dashiell Hammett. 2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Stieg Larsson. 3. And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie. 4.

Magic books are our favorite thing about magic. We believe magic books are the best way to learn magic, for many reasons. Most of you which you'll know. When you have to read the text and imagine what is happening, it leads to you creating your own way of doing something, rather than just aping something on a video. The time invested in learning from a book will pay off in spades.

      As the connection between the past and the present is made clear and the two stories meld into one, the reader is kept spellbound. Although the ending is the weak link in the book, as it is with so many of this author's other books, it will not diminish the enjoyment that the reader will get in reading this latest offering.5/5(5).   'A haunting mystery about the secrets of the past, the bonds within families, and the hidden ties that connect people across time. A story to be savoured, The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde is a book I'll be recommending to everyone I know' - Megan Miranda, author of .
