DNF page 37Dry Dry DRYI gave this book 37 pages but I didn t feel anything for it Despite having an interesting premise that would appeal to most bibliophiles I felt like there was nothing there to hook me immediately There were animatronic lions and statues and then steam powered carriages for some reason this book is set in the near future so it was really odd It felt like a smattering of other successful stories right now in the market had bits picked from them and this was what was trying to be cobbled out of it Let s not even mention the we have to keep books read education from commoners thingThere s just no warmth or heart here to keep me interested

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family who are involved in the thriving black market Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his tra. Dear bookworms of the world You need this book in your life If you don t buy read and love this as much as I did well I ain t gonna be your friend no With much love Faye Okay I kid I ll still be your friend nevertheless but do you think I m kidding about the awesomeness of this book Let me tell you something I don t always give books 5 stars But when I do there are two categories 5 stars and 5 fucking fantastic starsWhen you have a story with a male hero who fricking loves books in an alternate history fantasy setting who travels with a group of amazing friends and a sarcastic strict likeable mentor and who eventually goes against a LIBRARY CORPORATION that is keen on controlling how books are used and made well I m sorry but doesn t that just scream 5 fucking fantastic stars to youI really really really love this book I read it with an open mind a month ago not knowing of the premise or the author and was absolutely blown away by how amazing and original and refreshing it was1 It s about books A book about books That already sounds awesome doesn t it It s about a world torn by books by people who want to control how books are made and shelved and copied and stored and by people who d rather burn and eat books than have their lives compromised by an oppressing system where having original copies of books can be the death of you It s about a group of friends or okay enemies turned forced acuaintances turned friends who love books and seek to protect them in various ways going so far as to put their lives on the line in order to make sure they re safe from harm2 The library is the freaking villain Okay maybe not the library itself but the people behind it who are pulling the strings Yup They re so drunk with their power and how they control the books and the people with their system that they say OFF WITH THEIR HEADS uicker than the ueen of Hearts on crack And guys They re the ultimate book hoarders They re us except on steroids And by steroids I mean nasty nasty steroids You don t wanna mess with these guys unless you re Jess Brightwell of course3 Male hero who loves books as much as we do Jess comes from a book smuggling family They find original copies and then sell them to collectors and getting the books to these collectors is no easy feat as they have to evade the authorities and these automated stone lions that come to life when they sniff some black market mischief And then one day upon delivering a book to a collector Jess witnessed a man eat the only copy of an ancient historian s book like it was nothing and that was when he realized this book smuggling thing just wasn t his cup of teaI have nothing but love for this guy You can really tell how much he cares for books a lot and how much he s willing to go so so far just for them How far would we go for knowledge How far would we go in order to make sure that knowledge is easily accessible What would we do if we have to choose between books and the people who thirst for freedom Plus I just love his personality and I love his interactions with his friends who are all so very diverse guys heck there s even an interracial romance among them HOLY MOTHER OF EPICBALLS and with his mentor who is a bundle of complexity because you love and hate him at the same time4 The writing and the world building are amazing The writing reminded me so much of Brandon Sanderson s it s not purple prose and verbose and uses simple words than other fantasyAU novels and yet they still say so much and connect you to the story easily and efficiently The way they were weaved and connected felt so fricking lyrical and poetic and romantic despite the fact that the story contained themes of oppression bleakness and the need for freedom from an unfair system The book was so entertaining and so heartbreaking and so heartwarming all at the same time that it left me in tears and in joy and at the edge of my seatAll in all this book is the book of my dreams Its place is right there beside Brandon Sanderson and that s a big big BIG deal right there

Ruthless and supremely powerful the Great Library is now a presence in every major city governing the flow of knowledge to the masses Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden. We re nothing but secrets Books alchemy secret tunnels books friendships rivalries books and villains who become heroes Oh and did I mention books Oh so many booksI might complain every time I read that ridiculous X meets Y marketing strategy but I have to admit that Harry Potter meets The Book Thief meets Fahrenheit 451 is a pretty good descriptor for this book The main character Jess is indeed a book thief and they re are people called Burners who you guessed it burn books for political protest in this alternate world where the Great Library rules The truth was what the library wanted it to be So you might be wondering where the Harry Potter part comes in Well let s imagine for a second that HP wasn t so much about wizards as it was about alchemists and that Harry didn t go to Hogwarts but instead went to The Great Library in Alexandria Egypt Where there are teachers who may or may not be evil leaders who almost certainly can t be trusted and all the friendships and rivalries you would expect from teenagers competing to be scholarsI can t say it s a perfect book but it is damn entertaining From the beautiful descriptions of Alexandria to the frightening presence of the Library s leaders from the competition to the importance of friendship and the mix of funny and touching friendship dynamics Everyone has secrets and the bad guys might not be what you first expectAfter this wonderful diverse cast of characters my favourite thing has to be the books Ink and Bone is about love for books the power of books the lengths people will go to for books Also though this may be unintentional I got a sense of an underlying symbolism about the difference between ebooks and physical books in our world Ebooks are convenient universal I read them all the time but does anything ever really compare to having the physical ink and paper in your handsA fast paced exciting read No cliffhanger but perfectly set up for the seuel I can t waitEdit And just in case you were wondering I didn t like the Morganville Vampires series and that had no bearing on my enjoyment of thisBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Youtube
