Book Review: Spell Weaver by Megan Derr

Myka's dream was to someday own his shop, making and spelling suits that were prized throughout the world. Instead, he rejected an apprenticeship with a master who proved to be reprehensible—and touchable—and lost everything. Now, he works in a derelict shop in the wrong part of town, and it's only a matter of time before he's caught spelling without a license or thrown out by his odious landlord.

The only bright part of his days are the occasional visits from his best client, Johan, a man who works in the palace and always brings the finest suits to have spelled. When he accidentally leaves behind an invitation to the royal ball, Myka takes it, determined to have one evening where he can enjoy himself—and perhaps even spend time with Johan as something other than a spell weaver.

This is a truly delightful short story! It's your typical "Cinderfella" storyline, but with a slight twist. Myka is extremely sweet and likeable, and I particularly enjoyed the mystery behind Johan. Towards the end of the story, things seemed to move a bit fast, but I guess that's to be expected in a novella. Knowing what eventually happened to Myka was lovely, but I would have enjoyed actually reading about living his new life. All in all, this is a nice, quick read that will bring a smile to your face.
