About the Author
Praise For Libriomancer (Magic Ex Libris #1)…
“I picked up the book meaning to read a few pages. My first thought was, ‘This is a cool concept.’ The second thing I thought was, ‘This is really, really clever.’ The third thing I thought was, ‘I should have gone to sleep three hours ago.’”
-Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE NAME OF THE WIND
"Pretty much geek porn for the urban fantasy set. It’s meta-fictional and utterly awesome."
"This may be Jim Hines’s best work. Libriomancer is smart, silly, and deadly serious, all at the same time. It’s a book about loving books. This is the magic librarian and ass-kicking dryad adventure story we’ve all been waiting for."
-Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of DISCOUNT ARMAGEDDON
"All writers believe in the magic of books; Jim Hines has created a system where that magic becomes real, usable, and very definitely not always safe."
-Tanya Huff, bestselling author of the BLOOD BOOKS
"Secret organizations, supernatural threats, and an unknown killer of unimaginable power—Libriomancer is one of the best reads I’ve had in a long time. It’s a lightning-fast race against time and magic to prevent the darkest secrets from history from unleashing a supernatural war on the world. I can’t wait for the next one. Oh, by the way, never piss off a fire spider."
-Lisa Shearin, national bestselling author of ALL SPELL BREAKS LOOSE
“This funny and fast-paced series opener...will be sure to surprise and entertain urban fantasy fans.... Isaac is sure to be an instant fan favorite, and the secondary characters are vivid and multidimensional.”
