In Lisa Maxwell’s The Last Magician, there are magical objects that are infused with power. They allow their user to hone their own magic and become more powerful. In the case of Esta, she’s able to walk further through time, which is a really cool affinity to have. Ordinary objects have power in the world of The Last Magician and for this round I’ve been asked to think about an object I would infuse with some sort of power.
I wear a lot of necklaces. If I was a Mageus who had an object of power, I’d want it to be something unassuming. If it’s obvious I would worry that I’d lose it or it would get stolen. So for my magical object I’ve chosen my moon necklace.
This necklace was given to me as a gift and is already unique even without magic. The moon on this piece is actually from the day I was born, which I think is really cool. Since it’s already special to me, I thought I’d make it even more so by giving it some powers.
If you found me wandering the world of old Manhattan, sipping a drink or catching a show, I’d be wearing this necklace. It would allow me to travel unseen when touched, similar to Jianyu’s power of bending light. There’s limits to power, however, so the necklace is strongest at night under the light of the moon. It can work during the day, but it’s not as strong.
I think I’ve made a good choice with an object I want to make magical. I’d get a lot of use out of this one, especially when I want to avoid crowds. What sort of object would you make magical? What power would you fill it with? Let me know in the comments! And if you’re curious about The Last Magician and its upcoming sequel The Devil’s Thief, check out the website here. The sequel is out October 9th, 2018! I’m getting so excited for it and will continue promoting it for the next couple of months.
