Summary from Goodreads:

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. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.

Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. 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.

This book at first didn't catch my eye, but I'm glad I read it.

The main character Elisabeth started off as a naive young woman, believing anything and everything she was told, but by the end, she was a strong independent woman, ready to make right the wrongs against her.

I loved the world building and the way the grimoiurs are used. Why would anyone create something like this? Are they insane? of course they are. These little crazy magical books give the story another layer that makes the plot amazing.

This was a great read and I can't wait to see what else this author has instore.
