Summary

Magical mapmaking is an ancient art - and also a major pain. At least, Finch can’t help but feel that way since Erebus transported him to the mapmakers’ monastery with little to no instructions. Now, he’s stranded on some Greek island until he can learn how to draw maps to places he thought only existed in legends, like El Dorado and Shangri-La.

Only the worthiest of magicals can attain such a rare skill. The weak are weeded out through nearly impossible tests that involve mind-bending poisons, weird plants, and...pottery-making.

But Finch isn’t the only one looking to learn the art of mapmaking. Magicals from all over the world are drawn to the monastery. As Finch encounters both greedy treasure hunters and knowledge-hungry explorers, he must decide who is trustworthy and who has more sinister intentions.

When Erebus knocks on her door, Kenzie is roped in to delivering secret messages to Finch, using her ability to morph into the bodies of animals. In exchange, the god of darkness will reveal what she wants most: to find the lowlife who cursed her mother.

Both Finch and Kenzie know they’re pawns in Erebus’s long game. But to what end?

A Harley Merlin without Harley Merlin

As from book 1 to book 11 a very gripping story. only a very talented writer can manage a reader to go through emotions. I was and still am gripped and can't wait for the next book and Finch Merlin's story to carry on. only shame is that there isn't much mentioning of the rest of the rag team.

Characters are fantastic!

The more I learn about these characters the more I fall in love with them! Finch by far is my favorite. The author is great when it comes to character development. They seem very real despite these books are dealing with magic. You see the good and the bad with each character as you continue along with the books but also get a good amount of good and bad equalities of the new character in the books. I was not a huge fan of the story line in this one - but the characters conversations and friendship kept me interested all the way through. The series is the beat series I’ve come across since I was a child. The narrator is by far one of my favorites.
