A New York Times bestseller! "A bewitching gem...I absolutely loved every moment of this story." --Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series "If you loved the Hogwarts Library...you'll be right at home at Summershall." --Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale From the New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens comes an "enthralling adventure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) about an apprentice at a magical library who must battle a powerful sorcerer to save her kingdom. All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer's Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery--magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. Then an act of sabotage releases the library's most dangerous grimoire, and Elisabeth is implicated in the crime. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them. As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she's been taught--about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.… (mer)

Considering how most of the YA fantasy that’s published these days is overly romantic, and under-developed drivel, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Rogerson has created a new and innovative pseudo-Victorian(ish) world, which centres around the study of magic through living grimoires, and she leads us on a fantastic journey of adventure and discovery alongside the character of Elisabeth Scrivener. Elisabeth has been raised in one of the kingdom’s Great Libraries, surrounded by magical grimoires and the people who keep them safe for the country’s sorcerers to study, but all goes awry as she stumbles upon a plot to destabilize the kingdom when her Library is attacked by a powerful grimoire transformed into a living Malefict. Elisabeth defeats the Malefict, but this is only the beginning of her journey to discover her own powers, who is behind the plot, and some major truths about sorcery and demons. While reading this book, I was often struck by how reminiscent it was of Jonathan Stroud’s Bartimaeus trilogy (demons/djinn are not always what they seem), Garth Nix’s Abhorsen books (for the wonderfully constructed magical world), and Tamora Pierce’s anything (powerful and determined female leads), but overall the book is truly its own beast. This novel may be a standalone, but I am very much looking forward to reading Rogerson’s other book and keeping an eye on her future work. ( )

I would describe this book as an ideal combination of nerdy fantasy because it talks about books through in every scenario, but also has some epic enemies. I wish I had the time to read this in one block of time, but I was able to pick it up and read it every night a little at a time without forgetting any important things. An enjoyable read, I would recommend it to book people who like reading about book people doing awesome adventure things. ( )

So I read Margaret Rogerson's first book not too long ago and it's hard not to compare. I think her writing had gotten better and both books have felt very atmospheric. My mom says that they would make good movies because of how they are written. This was a really fun read and the world was very fun to read about. I like all the quirky elements that Rogerson adds in.

As far as characters, there are definitely characters to root for but I didn't feel like the romance was as strong in this one. It's not as big a part of the story, which is fine, but I just didn't feel like they had as strong a connection and chemistry. I also didn't like Nathaniel as well as I liked Rook. Silas was an interesting character though.

The story itself was just ok. It's kinda generic and I saw every twist coming. The plot is not necessarily the reason to read this book. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fun plot to read about but I found it pretty predictable. ( )
