ASH AND QUILL: GREAT LIBRARY, BOOK #3 by Rachel Caine
continues to be one of my favorite series. The Great
Library Series continues to amaze me and causes me to
stay up late at night just to read the next chapter (or
chapters in my case). The first book in this series is
titled, INK AND
BONE, here the author introduces us to
The Great Library which every city has but, this library
controls the books of the world.
Only the librarians can
distribute books and track down anyone who has ownership
of forbidden books. These forbidden books are a violation
of the law and anyone showing ownership of these books
could be sentenced to death. I really like the group of
characters more with each book I read and feel that they
grow even more as I finish reading another book in the
series. Caine creates a group of characters that work
extremely well together that helps the overall dynamics
of the series. I find having characters, both main
and supporting, that work well and mesh together makes
for a better overall story. ASH AND QUILL is so well
written that I found myself reading the whole book in two
sittings. I lost track of the time because I just could
not put this book down!
Caine is a very imaginative writer who describes a world
and story that is so realistic that it will leave you
both breathless and terrified at the same time. Her
imagination and the way she can write it on paper in this
outstanding book is truly remarkable. She can make her
words flow effortlessly from page to page that it will
leave you always wanting more.
I felt like I was on the edge on my seat the whole time I
read ASH AND QUILL. I got so involved and caught up in
the story that I felt like I was in the story, a part of
the action not knowing what larks around the next corner.
Most series do not continue to amaze the readers and can
cause many to lose interest, but not this series. Each
book will grab hold of you and not let go until you are
at the end of the book wanting more. All three books so
far in the Great
Library Series have been captivating,
truly drawing you in and not letting go. A very diverse
and unique story and book series that will be a favorite
to anyone who reads them!
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....
