A New York Times bestseller! "A bewitching gem...I absolutely loved every moment of this story." --Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series "If you loved the Hogwarts Library...you'll be right at home at Summershall." --Katherine Arden, New York Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale From the New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens comes an "enthralling adventure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) about an apprentice at a magical library who must battle a powerful sorcerer to save her kingdom. 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. Then an act of sabotage releases the library's most dangerous grimoire, and Elisabeth is implicated in the crime. 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.… (més)

I LOVED IT !!! I LOVED IT!!! I REALLY REALLY LOVED IT!!!!The way this book was written, I thought I read an entire series yesterday. Which is a good thing, because most fantasy books that I like end up being series, and it was really refreshing to see it all tied up in one book, but be really really good!! I didn't even realise that I hadn't read a series, I thought I really did!! I loved the characters, Elisabeth especially, (like I have said, I really like badass female characters who kill people!!) and Nathaniel was just so, so amazing!! In my head he looked like a really Loki/ Slytherin type character, in the manner of appearances, I also saw a tumblr post about his slytherin-esque looks, so I don't know if that thought was completely original, but he was just so........hot. And Silas, oh Silas, what do I even say? I really hated it when he died, because I thought he died, like actually-gone-from-this-world-never-to-come-back died. And I was really really glad he didn't!!!! Oh that ending was just fabulous!! I really liked the dynamic between Silas and Nathaniel, they were like kin, and Silas and Elisabeth, which were also like kin actually, but not in the beginning. And I really like it that though there was a romance, it wasn't like the absolute main point, and written like a rom-com (in my opinion; I also really like rom-coms) and just the banter, and the snarkiness, the slight obliviousness, the just really, really good writing!! Also, the books!!!?!?!?!? They were really the reason I wanted to read this in the first place. They were just so interesting!! And the world building in this one was so good, I really have a mini Austermeer in my head now!! I really loved the way libraries and librarians were portrayed, and the books/grimoires themselves. It had a really good ending, and a middle, and the beginning, just was a really really good read, and one I will possibly reread in the future, which is like the highest honor I can reward a book at this point!! I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy, with a bit of romance nicely woven in, cute boys who make really good jokes and banter with the female character, really awesome demons who are just really awesome, and just anyone who hasn't read this!!

I loved this so much! Would that I could live in a world where books are magic and have personalities and can talk to me and be my friends!

That is exactly the world that Elisabeth Scrivener lives in as an apprentice librarian in one of the six Great Libraries of Austermeer. But not all the books are friendly, and some are very, very dangerous. When powerful grimoires get damaged, they transform into monstrous Maleficts — and there is a saboteur breaking into Libraries and setting them off on purpose. When Elisabeth is falsely accused of the crime, she is sent to the capital city in the custody of a sorcerer named Nathaniel Thorn and his demonic servant, Silas. Elisabeth could never have imagined how great a challenge she would face in trying to expose the true culprit, nor could she have expected that she would learn to trust those whom she once considered her greatest enemies.

This book had some Beauty and the Beast vibes running through it: the magic mirror, the roses, and of course the ginormous libraries! Plus there was a monstrous creature who turned out to be good and a good-looking guy who turned out to be bad. Lots of magic, lots of demons. And I was super invested in our three main characters! The ending was perfect; I just wish the epilogue had an epilogue. ( )

Considering how most of the YA fantasy that’s published these days is overly romantic, and under-developed drivel, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Rogerson has created a new and innovative pseudo-Victorian(ish) world, which centres around the study of magic through living grimoires, and she leads us on a fantastic journey of adventure and discovery alongside the character of Elisabeth Scrivener. Elisabeth has been raised in one of the kingdom’s Great Libraries, surrounded by magical grimoires and the people who keep them safe for the country’s sorcerers to study, but all goes awry as she stumbles upon a plot to destabilize the kingdom when her Library is attacked by a powerful grimoire transformed into a living Malefict. Elisabeth defeats the Malefict, but this is only the beginning of her journey to discover her own powers, who is behind the plot, and some major truths about sorcery and demons. While reading this book, I was often struck by how reminiscent it was of Jonathan Stroud’s Bartimaeus trilogy (demons/djinn are not always what they seem), Garth Nix’s Abhorsen books (for the wonderfully constructed magical world), and Tamora Pierce’s anything (powerful and determined female leads), but overall the book is truly its own beast. This novel may be a standalone, but I am very much looking forward to reading Rogerson’s other book and keeping an eye on her future work. ( )

I would describe this book as an ideal combination of nerdy fantasy because it talks about books through in every scenario, but also has some epic enemies. I wish I had the time to read this in one block of time, but I was able to pick it up and read it every night a little at a time without forgetting any important things. An enjoyable read, I would recommend it to book people who like reading about book people doing awesome adventure things. ( )
