Genre: Science Fiction and Fantasy
A.R. Peters started this book as a professional. She knew the intrigue she was putting in the first part of the book would hook the reader into wanting to know more about what was going on. What most of us like is a good mystery and that’s what we got at the beginning but instead of wanting to know who was the killer, we wanted to know why all the secrecy and extreme protection of the library and its contents.
When I finished reading the first chapter “Makeshift Ghosts” I was confused to no end. Why would these creatures go to such lengths to protect a library and its contents? I understand wanting to keep the book inside the library but why it was such a dire thing I did not understand. That pulled me forward into the book itself to figure out that mystery.
I found out plenty of things and there was not a dull moment. I couldn’t put the book down and even though I was forced to, because I needed to eat or do other stuff, I can back to read it as soon as I had a moment to spare.
The fact that I don’t read much fantasy, combined with my fascination with the story made this book an incredible read for me. Add to that the way the book was written and I was gone. I truly think it was such a great read because it transported me to another realm, another time even if you wish. I can hardly wait to dive into the next book. That’s another point in favor of the story, the ending. It satisfied me as a reader but posted enough questions in my head that I need to find out more.
The book was told from multiple points of views. Each chapter having a different character telling the story and it was done in such a way that the reader couldn’t be confused about who was telling it. There were some minor spelling mistakes that didn’t deter me from the reading, but it was worth mentioning in case you don’t like those.
A.R. Peters became a one-click author for me from now on. I will follow her work on this series in particular because I feel invested in the characters already.
I would totally recommend this book to anyone that love fantasy stories.
