The Luthier’s Apprentice by Mayra Calvani – Review

The Luthier's ApprenticeBlurb:

Niccolò Paganini (1782-1840), one of the greatest violinists who ever lived and rumored to have made a pact with the devil, has somehow transferred unique powers to another…

When violinists around the world mysteriously vanish, 16-year-old Emma Braun takes notice. But when her beloved violin teacher disappears… Emma takes charge. With Sherlock Holmes fanatic, not to mention gorgeous Corey Fletcher, Emma discovers a parallel world ruled by an ex-violinist turned evil sorceress who wants to rule the music world on her own terms.

But why are only men violinists captured and not women? What is the connection between Emma’s family, the sorceress, and the infamous Niccolò Paganini?

Emma must unravel the mystery in order to save her teacher from the fatal destiny that awaits him. And undo the curse that torments her family—before evil wins and she becomes the next luthier’s apprentice…


My Review:

If you want a story of magic and mayhem, this is the one for you. I think I learned a lot about violins from this book that I never knew.

Emma and Corey are great fun as the leads, capable of kicking butt and making a world for themselves. Suspense, laughter, wonder, this book has it all.
