Publisher Description

A librarian with a mysterious past, a war hero with a secret, and the heist of a magic painting. THE LIBRARIAN OF CROOKED LANE is an intriguing new fantasy from C.J. Archer, the USA Today bestselling author of the Glass and Steele series.

 

Librarian Sylvia Ashe knows nothing about her past, having grown up without a father and a mother who refused to discuss him. When she stumbles upon a diary that suggests she’s descended from magicians, she’s skeptical. After all, magicians are special, and she’s just an ordinary girl who loves books. She seeks the truth from a member of the most prominent family of magicians, but she quickly learns that finding the truth won’t be easy, especially when he turns out to be as artless as her, and more compelling and dangerous than books.

 

War hero Gabe is gifted with wealth, a loving family, and an incredible amount of luck that saw him survive four harrowing years of a brutal war without injury. But not all injuries are visible. Burying himself in his work as a consultant for Scotland Yard, Gabe is going through the motions as he investigates the theft of a magician-made painting. But his life changes when he unwittingly gets Sylvia dismissed from her job and places her in danger.

 

After securing her new employment in a library housing the world’s greatest collection of books about magic, Gabe and Sylvia’s lives become intwined as they work together to find both the painting and the truth about Sylvia’s past before powerful people can stop them. 

 

But sometimes the past is better left buried…

Gets even better on the second reading

I re-read this book after I devoured the entire Glass & Steele series, the way that Professor Nash devours magical doughnuts. I’d read that series after discovering this new series of books. I couldn’t wait for the next in this series and wanted more.

The Librarian of Crooked Lane is like a delicious meal that you just can’t stop eating…going back for just one more little bit, until you realise you’ve eaten/ read the whole thing.

And now having read the background series, it’s even more satisfying to know the foundation this book is built upon and reacquaint with some of the beloved characters from the original.

Highly recommended but if you need to get things done, I hope you have more self-discipline than me because it’s hard to put it down.
