Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When apprentice librarian Elisabeth is implicated in sabotage that released the library's most dangerous grimoire, she becomes entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy that could mean the end of everything.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1
    Sixteen-year-old Elisabeth is a foundling, raised in one of the Great Libraries, repositories of magical books called grimoires, which contain classified information and can transform into grotesque monsters. A favorite of the library's director, Elisabeth dreams of becoming a warden-librarian who protects the kingdom from grimoires. Then the director is found brutally murdered, and Elisabeth is accused of the crime. Taken for questioning in the capital, Elizabeth develops a relationship with both her captors, sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn and his demon servant, Silas. It's a slow-burn romance for Nathaniel and Elisabeth, for Elisabeth's preconceptions about sorcerers run deep and are not without cause. There's something for many audiences in Rogerson's (An Enchantment of Ravens, 2017) sophomore novel: bibliophiles and fans of Harry Potter will love the existence and power of magical books; fantasy readers will delight in the many different kinds of (frequently grotesque) magical beings; romance and adventure fans will enjoy the comforting predictability of both those genres; and nearly every chapter ends with a hook. Happily, a cliff-hanger ending guarantees there's more to come. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
