In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time…
Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.
When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…
My Review: I can't even explain how excited I was that Rachel came out with another book. I loved her Morganville Series beyond words. So naturally, I just had to read this book. And Rachel so did not disappoint with this one!
So Jess believes in the Library. The power in knowledge. He gets everything he knows from books, however they are illegal. You just can't own books and well, I just don't like that idea. Jess would love to be a part of the Library and once he gets in, things aren't going to be so easy. He's supposed to be there as a spy for the family, but Jess isn't exactly into the family business.
Well Jess gets accepted, and heads off. And things are so not what he expected. Yes knowledge is great, but at what cost? Is knowledge really more important than a human life? Well it is according to the Great Library.
This book brings everything you could expect. The writing is on point, the feels are there, the suspense, and just everything! Rachel's new series is awesome and I can't wait for the next book!
