Summary, etc.:
"Lenora returns to the magical Library-- which holds every book ever known on its shelves. But she discovers the Library is under new management, its incredible rooms and corridors turned dark and sinister. She quickly connects with a secret resistance that’s trying to free knowledge from the shadows threatening it. Her new friends introduce her to an ancient lost city, hang gliding, and mathematical beings larger than the universe itself. And they help her face the mysterious Board of new leaders-- who are leading the Library into darkness. Now it's up to Lenora to prove that knowledge is always more powerful than ignorance and fear." --

    *Starred Review* After a year of patiently waiting, taking Kendo lessons, and reading every book she can get her mitts on, Lenora is finally called back to work by the Library of Ever. This time, the Forces of Darkness—namely hatred, lies, and fear—have infiltrated the Board and fired any librarian who openly resists. It's up to Lenora to bring the light back, and she accomplishes this by empowering all the true librarians to organize and rebel. In this sequel, readers will learn who Zeno Alexander, the person chronicling Lenora's stories, is and how they came to be acquainted. Lenora also meets a new friend, Ada, who begins the story in ignorance and finishes in enlightenment. All the magic and awe of the first volume (The Library of Ever, 2019) continues here, taking Lenora to heights greater than the universe itself, all in search of the right answer for a curious patron, with the aid of none other than a googol. It's so very exciting to imagine librarians as truth seekers and rebels with access to the incredible Library where they'll always be able to bring the truth to their patrons. Indeed, libraries are magic, and just as so many imagine receiving their acceptance letters from Hogwarts, this clever, whimsical tale will have anyone looking for the portal to the Library of Ever.

Author Notes

After emerging from the shadows of the past, his history yet to be fully explained, Zeno Alexander spent years exploring the world's libraries before settling down in his lavish underground bunker, where he regularly hosts exquisite dinner parties and tends to his collection of extinct plants. His friendship with the famous librarian, Lenora, has turned into a series of biographical works devoted to chronicling her adventures.
