Hello All, how is your week going? I'm a wee bit exhausted, but hey I'm still alive and kicking so there is that. How about a rambling? Cool. Today let's ramble about Codex Born, the second book in the Magic Ex Libris series by Jim C. Hines. You may remember my absolute geek out love of the first book in the series, so you can imagine my excitement to start this second book. Unfortunately, while still a good book, it did not live up to my admittedly over the top expectations. But first, as always SPOILERS AHEAD!
wendigo murder. While investigating, Lena's tree (which she lives in) gets attacked and infested with magical, mechanical bugs. After some investigating they discover that a former colleague, who was a mechanical genius, created the bugs and in some way sent them to his abusive father when he died. His father August Harrison is a bit of a sadistic freak, and has been recruited by an ancient, pre-Porter libriomancer like group to help return the souls of their leaders, who were imprinted in books hundreds of years ago for their own safety. This leads to Isaac and his team investigating a group led by a person called Bi Sheng, who was able to use and teach a form of libriomancy before the Porter leader Gutenberg
What is the feeling between love and dissapointment? Can a 10 out of 10 book ever be followed?
How badly do you want the power libriomancy?
