Steph | 6 comments It is a series about mages. Young girl discovers she has magic, works and hides at a bakery. She is found and taken hostage for a while. Can't remember who by but is similar to black magician series by Trudi Canavan. I read it about 10 years ago.

Steph | 6 comments I don't think it was that.

Mir | 703 comments Oh! I think I just looked at this one in the library. I didn't read it so I don't know about the hostage part, but it was by Patricia Briggs. Maybe Raven's Shadow?

Steph | 6 comments No this was published too recently. The book I am looking for will have been published before 2000. However it looks a good read so will add it to my must read list.

Ok, one of the sisters in this book works in a bakery. But she's not the one with magic--its the other 2 who have magic. Howl's Moving Castle.

Steph | 6 comments Not this either. In the book people with magic are called mages rather than witches or magicians.

Kaion (kaionvin) | 389 comments Sunshine is from 2004, but look!: http://www.librarything.com/tag/baker... (and seems like it has the kidnapping)

Maybe one of these?: http://www.librarything.com/tag/baker...

Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides (upsight) | 289 comments I thought of Sunshine right away, but it's not old enough and not a series.

(Also, if there were no vampires and demons, then Sunshine's not what you're looking for.)


message 10: by Mir (new)

Mir | 703 comments Hmm. I feel like there is a manga about this...


message 11: by Steph (new)

Steph | 6 comments No demons or vampires that I remember. I read it while at university and I graduated in 2000 so had to be published before then.

Stacie H. (staciemh) | 7 comments The only book that I can find that is vaguely like the one you described is:
The Gates of Sleep by Mercedes Lackey


James (m0gb0y74) | 9 comments I know the mage doesn't work at a bakery but she frequents it.

Aurian

It's a long shot, I know.

Valerie | 59 comments Is it young adult? Maybe something from Tamora Pierce. She writes about mages a lot.

I think Aurian might be it. I have read this probably around the time I was thinking of so there is a good chance this is the one I was looking for.

Thanks

Yay :-) I've popped my proverbial cherry and actually managed to identify a book.
