Publisher's Summary

Detective Sally Brooks investigates an unusual robbery, and discovers that magic is real - and hungry!

NYPD Detective Sal Brooks is no rookie - but even the most hardened cop would think twice when they see their brother open a book and become...well...something entirely not their brother. When her attempts to solve the case cross paths with a mysterious team led by a priest, she starts to realize that the world is far more than what is seems, and, just maybe, magic is real - and hungry.

This episode is the first in a 16-part serial, Bookburners, presented by Serial Box. From a team of writers, this collaborative effort unfolds an epic urban fantasy narrative across an entire season in weekly installments.

Follow along as Sal learns the life-changing lesson: Some books have teeth.

What the Critics Say

"Bookburners is sheer enormous fun! Energetic, intense, vivid prose. More soon please." (Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted and the New York Times best-selling Temeraire series)

"Bookburners is the breathless, hallucinogenic love child of Torchwood, the Librarians, and the Laundry Files. More soon, please." (Ian Tregillis, author of The Mechanical and Bitter Seeds)

"Bookburners is an exciting new take on urban fantasy. Love the premise, love the characters, love the unique (and sometimes wonderfully disturbing) spin on the dangers of magic!" (Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of The Assassins Curse)

    The audio books I get tend to be either 1) scifi or 2) things for my husband and me to listen to on long road trips--humor or history

    "Very enjoyable, well written, great performance"

    I really enjoyed this first chapter of the "Bookburners" --certainly liked it enough to order the next two chapters. The reader is outstanding and the writing is excellent.

    "riveting fun"

    This is just a big bag of fun. If you love well-written urban fantasy adventures, you're not going to0 do better than this.

    I was hooked from the first minute. MORE. NOW.
