In the second installment of this richly imagined fantasy adventure series, a new threat from within the Library could destroy those who depend upon it the most.
The Library of the Unwritten in Hell was saved from total devastation, but hundreds of potential books were destroyed. Former librarian Claire and Brevity the muse feel the loss of those stories, and are trying to adjust to their new roles within the Arcane Wing and Library, respectively. But when the remains of those books begin to leak a strange ink, Claire realizes that the Library has kept secrets from Hell–and from its own librarians.
Claire and Brevity are immediately at odds in their approach to the ink, and the potential power that it represents has not gone unnoticed. When a representative from the Muses Corps arrives at the Library to advise Brevity, the angel Rami and the erstwhile Hero hunt for answers in other realms. The true nature of the ink could fundamentally alter the afterlife for good or ill, but it entirely depends on who is left to hold the pen.
A story that is fast paced, suspenseful, unique and leaves you wanting to know more is what this book gave me. I have read the first book and just was blown away by it. I knew I had to read more by this author. So I waited patiently for the book to arrive. Waiting and waiting. Then my local library had it. Now this second book takes you to another level of wow! It’s a whole new world you are stepping into. It’s sooooo unique. I loved it. I love the sass, the kindness, the curiosity, and devotion of the characters. They an odd bunch but they would fight tooth and nail for each other.
It did take me some time to read this book because of everything going on and my reading mojo was getting low. I am glad that I decided to keep reading this awesome fantasy adventure. The description of the setting, the emotions and words pouring out into the story was just fantastic. It was really rad taking the story further of Claire, Hero, Brevity and Ramiel identities in Hell’s Library setting. I just loved it.
You bet I will read the next book!
Go pick up her first book “The Library of the Unwritten” to read first before you read this one. You won’t regret it.
