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.
Megan Derr has brought a special look at a Cinderella-like tale with Spell Weaver. Myka may not have an evil stepmother or step-siblings but he does have a nasty landlord, he may not have a fairy godmother but he has a best client, Johan who is a bit of a loser. Now, I don't mean Johan is a loser as in a bad person or down on his luck he's just one of those people who tends to lose things and his latest lost paper provides Myka with an invitation to the ball. That's about the end of what I'll give you for the plot😉😉, but this gem is deliciously lovely and fun.
What can I say about Myka other than he is truly fun and you can't help but love him. Johan is interesting and perhaps there is more to him than Myka thinks . . . or perhaps there isn't(you'll have to read Spell Weaver to find out😉😉). This is the first time I've read Megan Derr, I have a couple of her works on my kindle for awhile but had yet to read them, well I can safely say that though it may be after the new year before I get to them what with all the holiday stories to read in the next few months but they have certainly come closer to the top of my TBR list. If you are like me and haven't read this author before, Spell Weaver is a perfect place to dip your reading feet in.
Megan is a long time resident of m/m fiction, and keeps herself busy reading, writing, and publishing it. She is often accused of fluff and nonsense. When she's not involved in writing, she likes to cook, harass her cats, or watch movies (especially all things James Bond). She loves to hear from readers, and can be found all around the internet.
