"A must-read for those who are seeking a little magic in their lives." Deborah Harkness, #1 bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches
In a shabby house, on a shabby street, in the new capital of Madrid, Luzia Cotado uses scraps of magic to get through her days of endless toil as a scullion. But when her scheming mistress discovers the lump of a servant cowering in the kitchen is actually hiding a talent for little miracles, she demands Luzia use those gifts to improve the family's social position.
What begins as simple amusement for the nobility takes a perilous turn when Luzia garners the notice of Antonio Prez, the disgraced secretary to Spain's king. Still reeling from the defeat of his armada, the king is desperate for any advantage in the war against England's heretic queenand Prez will stop at nothing to regain the king's favor.
Determined to seize this one chance to better her fortunes, Luzia plunges into a world of seers and alchemists, holy men and hucksters, where the lines between magic, science, and fraud are never certain. But as her notoriety grows, so does the danger that her Jewish blood will doom her to the Inquisition's wrath. She will have to use every bit of her wit and will to surviveeven if that means enlisting the help of Guilln Santngel, an embittered immortal familiar whose own secrets could prove deadly for them both.
A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books.

I wanted to love this book but it reminded me so much of The Hunger Games, I ended up feeling like it lacked originality and missed many opportunities. I liked the story: girls and one boy compete in a magical competition to become the king of Spain’s magician, at a time when the Inquisition was still quite a threat to witches. The Familiar, as in the title, is the main character’s “coach” through the games. I was sad the Inquisition played such a minor role in the book. I’ve read books about the inquisition in Spain and its Jews. It’s a sad history that is worth reminding the world about now. So it’s an entertaining read but if I gave a title to my review it would be: Missed Opportunities.

I enjoyed this but gave it only 3.5 stars because I didn't understand so much of it. I gave both books in her Alex Stern series 4 stars even though there were parts I didn't understand either. However, by the end of those books everything became clear. At the end of The Familiar I was still wondering what happened. It's about a scullery maid in 16th century Spain, the daughter of conversos, who is able to work small magic using Hebrew songs. Of course, big magic and power struggles ensue. I'm sure there are people who wouldn't find it as confusing as I, and they will like it more. ( )

2024 read. Fascinating reading about this period. I love historical novels that have more than ripped bodices in them, and this one had a lot more. Bardugo has a way of telling a tale that I truly appreciate. Haven't read one yet that hasn't drawn me in and kept me in the tale, even in my dreams. ( )

Bardugo plunges into a world of seers and alchemists, holy men and hucksters, where the lines between magic, science, and fraud are never certain. She portrays the danger that the protagonist's Jewish blood will doom her to the Inquisition's wrath.

Dark, historical, magic, and Leigh Bardugo…how bad can it be, right? Well, Bardugo’s new stand-alone book, The Familiar, feels exactly like that — Bardugo’s excellent writing, lots of magic, and a setting of 16th-century Spain. Luzia, a scullery maid who learned magic from her aunt accidentally allows her mistress to witness one of her “milagritos” setting off a series of events that ends with a magical contest for her life. The Familiar is dark, too long, and slightly over-written at points, but still worth reading for those who enjoy this type of novel. ( )
