Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.
This is a globe-trotting, magical urban fantasy adventure with some stunning libraries that has left me wanting more. Being readers, most of us can agree that libraries hold a special place in our hearts. Having a book where libraries play such an important role is a treat. Gia being thrust into this magical world reminded me of books like City of Bones, books which I have loved. The magic system was interesting and one I haven’t seen done before. This book is bursting with different characters and different creatures who all bring their own personality and importance to the story. There was also the obligatory romance, which I found really cute even as the plot develops through the novel. This is a book for book-lovers and lovers of the urban fantasy genre.
Keep Calm and Read On,
