Summary from Goodreads: The unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone and Paper and Fire unite to save the Great Library of Alexandria from itself in this electrifying adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealously guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny....

Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the Library’s rule.

Their time is running out. To survive, they’ll have to choose to live or die as one, to take the fight to their enemies—and to save the very soul of the Great Library....


Review: I've been really intrigued by this series and it hasn't let me down. Another wonderful book by the amazing Rachel Caine that will leave you immersed inside a world that is trying to kill you from all sides.

The first part of the book, our group of exiles find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia. They must escape before the Great Library wipes out the city. The second half of the book takes us through a more in depth issue within the Great Library its self. Boom! Mind blown.

I loved this read and all the twists and turns I was taken through. It was worth the wait. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
