To save the Great Library, the unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone, Paper a 

nd Fire, and Ash and Quill put themselves in danger in the next thrilling adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

The opening moves of a deadly game have begun. Jess Brightwell has put himself in direct peril, with only his wits and skill to aid him in a game of cat and mouse with the Archivist Magister of the Great Library. With the world catching fire, and words printed on paper the spark that lights rebellion, it falls to smugglers, thieves, and scholars to save a library thousands of years in the making…if they can stay alive long enough to outwit their enemies.

I. CAN’T. WAIT! *Fangirl squeals!* Ah! I found this cover revealed on @darkfaerietales_ on IG and it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to read it, Ash and Quill is my top favorite 2017 book to date!

Review: I don’t know…. On the one hand, I enjoyed this one, but after the ending of book 3 (Ash and Quill) I feel…that perhaps this one wasn’t as…mind-blowing? Okay, sure there is an epic ending, and plenty of danger and suspense throughout, but I don’t know, I kind of saw this ending coming? That said, it leave loads of potential for book 5, the finally of this amazing series!

I loved seeing the characters each find their place in this one, and enjoyed reading it overall, I just feel that this one is more of a bridge from book 3-5 than the others have been. A lot happens, but there is also a lot of planning, and strategizing going on from all sides. I was able to predict most of the surprises in this one, but there were plenty of places where I was cheering for Jess and his friends that it didn’t bother me. I saw a lot of character growth in this one, as with the rest of the series, and I hope that continues into the final book.
