Notes of Magic (The Bohemians #1)

By: Jessica Bucher

Publisher:  Independent

Publication Date: February 24th, 2018

Enchanted city. Old magic. New threat.


Taq, a young fiddler, comes to Prague with dreams of joining the Bohemians—a band of immortal, magic-wielding street performers. With a mission to right past wrongs, things don’t go as planned when he meets the beautiful performer, Katia. Now, he must decide if revealing his secret is worth losing her heart.


Katia has spent one hundred years chained to the city, broken-hearted and silent,

waiting for her chance to be free. But with an impending threat on Bohemia itself and a mysterious newcomer, peace is starting look farther than ever. Now she must decide if she should trust Taq or put her faith in the one who broke her heart—the tyrannical Magistrate of Bohemia.

Curses can be broken, but at what cost?

The idea for Notes of Magic (and the entire series of The Bohemians) came to me while traveling through Europe with my family. We saw so many amazing street performers in various cities, but there was something about Prague that just spoke to me. The city is so beautiful, romantic, and mysterious. There was a couple there performing on the steps leading up to the castle. I saw them on two different visits to the city. The woman was a fiddle player and the man was an accordion player. Their music serenades us as we made our way up to castle, seeing the city from a higher view. It was one of my most treasured memories of my three years in Europe, and the story idea for The Bohemians came to me while I walked.
