"In Ink and Bone, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library--and rewrite history.... With an iron fist, the Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion and in the name of the greater good forbidding the personal ownership of books. Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like what he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower, doomed to a life apart from everything she knows. Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library's deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London. But Jess's home isn't safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon Jess must choose between his friends, his family, and the Library, which is willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control..."--… (més)

Jess Brightwell and his friends have been separated, following the events in the first book in this series, Ink and Bone. Jess and Glain Waithen are serving in the High Garda, protectors of the Great Library. His best friend (Thomas) is dead, and Morgan, the girl Jess loves, is locked away forever to serve in the Iron Tower. When Jess learns that his BFF may still be alive and being tortured, he will stop at nothing to help, eventually pulling his friends back together along with their Scholar mentor, and his lover. Their struggle to find Thomas, and undermine the stranglehold of the Great Library's leaders on owning books and acquiring knowledge is epic. Jess's family continues to play an important role in the story, as does a local book smuggler's family in Alexandria. Looking forward to Book #3. ( )

Another exciting installment in The Great Library series. Lots of action and political intrigue in this fast paced story about what happens when a great institution becomes too powerful. The world building continues to be excellent as well as the characters.

I liked this one slightly better than the first book, mainly because of the continued character and world building. This series is perfect for fans of Fahrenheit 451. Just be warned there is a HUGH cliff hanger at the end. ( )

In the second book of the Great Library series, Jess is at a loss to determine what his next move should be. While he loves the concept of the Library, its reality chills his bones, particularly when he learns that one of his friends whom he believed was killed is actually imprisoned. As he works with several other members of his original training group to rescue his friend, they'll come up against the seemingly unstoppable power of the Library forcing them to make choices they never could have imagined.

Plenty of action, political machinations, and world development here. There's also growth for Jess as he discovers that a found family may be stronger than the one he was born into and at the same time figures out how he wants to fight against the Library. I continue to love the idea of the Great Library of Alexandria being a power unto itself and the corruption of its ideals from protecting knowledge to controlling it. Highly recommended to fans of the first book but be warned there's a pretty significant cliffhanger at the end of this volume. ( )

Jess and Glain continue training with the High Garda of the Library, while Khalila and Dario remain scholars. Morgan is in the Iron Tower with the other Obscurists, but she's talented enough that she's still contacting Jess when she can. Jess is determined to find out more of the Library's secrets - in particular, about the Black Archives and if his friend Thomas is still alive.

The continuing adventures of Jess and his friends continue where the last one left off, and take our heroes from Alexandria to Rome on their adventures. The world-building of this alternate universe where the Library controls all knowledge and prevents certain technological advances that would dilute its power - in particular, the printing press - is phenomenal. My one quibble is that instead of truly ending we're left with a blatant cliffhanger just stopping everything in the middle of action. ( )
