A boy has lived his whole life trapped within a vast library, older than empires and larger than cities.
A girl has spent hers in a tiny settlement out on the Dust where nightmares stalk and no one goes.
The world has never even noticed them. That’s about to change.
Their stories spiral around each other, across worlds and time. This is a tale of truth and lies and hearts, and the blurring of one into another. A journey on which knowledge erodes certainty, and on which, though the pen may be mightier than the sword, blood will be spilled and cities burned.
Well damn that was exquisite, Mark Lawrence continues to mesmerise his fans with his literary genius. Series after series that he releases just gets better and better.
The Book That Wouldn’t Burn is the first book of The Library Trilogy, and my oh my, what a read. Usually, I burn through books, but I absolutely took my time with this one to saver every moment.
Mark Lawrence has created a fantastic new world with wonderful new characters for us to get lost in, and I mean literally, you could lose yourself in this book for days with its amazing worldbuilding, plot and setting. The twist and turns will have your head spinning.
I love Marks writing, the way he weaves and crafts, mixing sy-fi, and fantasy together is just phenomenal. Being a lover of books and new worlds, who wouldn’t love to get lost in the biggest library in the world.
In this book, we follow two characters
Livira is an orphan girl from the dust, where horrors roam the vast wastes, Livira’s village is attacked by sabbers, and with luck, she finds herself in the city of Crath to be trained as a librarian.
Evar has lived his whole life trapped within a vast library, older than empires and larger than cities. Evar has been stuck in one chamber with his four adopted siblings, lost in the mechanism. When two worlds collide, everything will change forever
A truly thrilling read from start to finish, the anticipation of waiting for book two couldn’t come any quicker. To keep me stuck in the mechanism for a while longer, Mark Lawrence has just released a short story from this world called Overdue, and it’s excellent.
For all you fantasy lovers, if you haven’t checked out any of Marks series, I very highly recommend that you remedy that straight away…..😁📖🔥
