Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.
So today we Squee about

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 he 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.…
I LOVE Rachel Caine and was a huge fan of THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRE series. And since this series is now sadly over, I am excited to hear about her new series.
I’m especially intrigued by the Great Library of Alexandria since it always hold a special mysterious aura.
Are you excited as I am about this new series?
