It pains me to give this two stars given how much I loved book one but I was bored for most of the story unfortunately. ( )

I rarely give five starts, but Hackwith gets two in a row. that merit is not simply because she does amazingly well what all authors should aspire to achieve: create a coherent world, filled with characters we understand and care about and who behave consistently, and structures a plot that flows believably and compellingly. That would be enough to get four stars, but the last is for a truly rare accomplishment.

I read almost exclusively books about books and libraries, in all genres. In this series Hackwith has offered a startling and meaningful statement about the relationship between author and work, and on the true nature of inspiration and book. Moreover, these insights are not just dicta embroidering the true meat of the story, but are the foundation of the series itself. That puts her in the company of other masters such as Rachel Caine and Genevieve Cogman. ( )

After the events in The Library of the Unwritten, the library is still recovering from the fire, now with the muse, Brevity, as librarian and Claire shoved out to the Archives instead. There's some tension between the two, but they - and Rami and Hero - will be forced to band together again when a mysterious pool of ink turns up in Hell's Archives and they start to question the very nature of the Library and the Unwritten books themselves.

I had a blast returning to these characters and the world the author created in Hell's Library. The second in a planned trilogy, the book has reminders of past events without information dumping, and introduces more characters and aspects of the Library that intrigued me. I'm very much looking forward to book 3 in November. ( )

Fast moving but not furious, this follows the denizens of the Library of the Unwritten and the Archive as they continue to make mistakes and learn dangerous things. ( )

The Archive of the Forgotten by A. J. Hackwith is the second installment of the Hell’s Library series. As one would expect of a sequel, there are a few answers, more questions, and a new crisis our heroes must resolve. This time around, we not only learn more about the Library, but we also get some time with Brevity and Hero as well as Claire.

As The Archive of the Forgotten starts out a few months after the end of The Library of the Unwritten, there is always a danger that an author will either not recap the previous story or will spend too much time doing so, to the detriment of the current one. Thankfully, Ms. Hackwith does an excellent job balancing the refresher with building the mystery for this new adventure.

In fact, one of the main plot points of The Archive of the Forgotten is the aftermath of that first story. For Hero, Brevity, and Claire, there is no such thing as moving on with their lives (or afterlives). The emotional and psychological traumas of the battle among all of the characters play a significant role in the sequel, as it should. It shows that Ms. Hackwith intends for each story within the series to build upon the other one, which is always something you want in any series.

Within The Archive of the Forgotten, we get to see yet another afterlife dimension even though Heaven does not make an appearance this time. We do learn more about the Library, especially its importance within the universe. However, Ms. Hackwith is careful to leave certain questions about the Library without answers to give us something to anticipate in future novels.

The Archive of the Forgotten is the second novel in an enjoyable series that focuses less on the comical and more on the poignant. Ms. Hackwith seeks to redefine what a story is in a way that will strike an avid reader as profound. In addition, she makes you ruminate on the relationship between an author and his or her story. With many a sentence that hits you with all the emotions, I am most definitely a fan and cannot wait to see what happens next! ( )
