Publisher Description

Two strangers find themselves connected by a vast and mysterious library containing many wonders and still more secrets, in this powerfully moving first book in a new series from the international bestselling author of Red Sister and Prince of Thorns.

The boy has lived his whole life trapped within a book-choked chamber older than empires and larger than cities.

The girl has been plucked from the outskirts of civilization to be trained as a librarian, studying the mysteries of the great library at the heart of her kingdom.

They were never supposed to meet. But in the library, they did.

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.

The Book that Wouldn’t Burn is confusing

Just another book trying to be everything everywhere all of the time.

The Book That Wouldn’t Burn.

The author seemed that about half way into the book he got lost in the library of his own creation. I found it a struggle to finish the book and only continued reading to see if at some point it would make sense; alas, it did not. It was the worst book I have read in a long time
