Description

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In Ink and Bone, 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, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.

Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like 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 and doomed to a life apart.

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, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control...

Critique

Praise for Ink and Bone

"Rachel Caine transports the reader to an imaginary future world where a Great Library controls all knowledge and the private ownership of printed books is a radical, dangerous practice...Ink and Bone launches a magical new series that will leave readers begging for more."-Deborah Harkness, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

"Dark, riveting, heart-in-the-throat storytelling, with characters who caught me up and hold me even now. A don't-miss read!"-Tamora Pierce, New York Times Bestselling Author

"Caine's elegantly detailed descriptions bring Jess's world to vivid life in a fast-paced, action-oriented plot that will leave readers breathlessly anticipating not just the next page but the next book in the Great Library Series."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A thrill-a-minute adventure. . . This first entry into the Great Library series has pieces that mirror the excitement and bitterness of the Hunger Games series and contains some of the psychological elements of the Harry Potter books."-Booklist (starred review)

"Fans will fall in love with Jess and want the next book out immediately."-USA Today

"A strong cast of characters and nail-biting intensity make for a promising start to this series."-School Library Journal

"A modern masterpiece. . . . Fellow bibliophiles, expect to be some variation on struck-awestruck, dumbstruck, starstruck, maybe even thunderstruck. . .a new series to thrill every bookworm's heart!"-Christian Science Monitor

"Caine's world where books and libraries dominate is not for the faint of heart...What's not to love? Imagine Harry Potter where the real magic is found within the pages of ancient texts. This book proves the adage that knowledge is power."-RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick)
