In Ink and Bone, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now, she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library—and rewrite history…
With an iron fist, The Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.
Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.
Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.
But Jess’s home isn’t safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon, Jess must choose between his friends, his family, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control…
I received this ARC as part of Miss Print’s ARC Adoption Program. I in love with this series the idea is so fresh and addicting to know what gonna happen next. I am wrapped up in this word of Jess the book smuggler now working for the Great Library and Morgan who he loves with all his soul. I am fighting along side him as he trying to fight for what he really believes the library stood for but finds out along the way that belief is false.
Their one major part of this story where i was crying tears
“The first shelf of books was fully on fire with licks of greenish-white flame. The second above it smoked, and Jess could see paper blackening and curling at the edges.
Book after book.
Level after level.”
All that information gone in greenish evil fire. I love this book and ready for the next one this is a very unique series and Rachel Caine does a great job of drawing you in with all the twists and turns and players you thought were dead maybe not being so dead. Great book i highly recommend the first one which is Ink and Bone.
