Why did I read this?  Because I read the first two books in the series, The Paper Magician and The Glass Magician.

Ceony Twill has been sent to another magician to test out to see if she has fulfilled the requirements of her apprenticeship.  The magician is one whom her mentor had bullied as a young man.  However before she can take her test, her relationship with her own sister in tested and a magician who has targeted her family has escaped from prison and once again Ceony doesn’t trust anyone besides herself to capture him.  She and her mentor promised one another not to go after the bad guy on their own, but they both break their promises and it takes Ceony’s new abilities and some teamwork to capture him again.  Ceony’s test in long and complicated.  With the end of her test her life changes both personally and professionally.
