Lenna Faircloth thought she was content enough to be junior librarian at one of the grandest libraries on the Continent, so long as at the end of the day she can enjoy a glass (or two) of wine and some decent shut-eye. Reticent and unconcerned with trivial matters, Lenna is almost laughably nonplussed the day her childhood friend, Gilbert, appears at her door, asking her to help smuggle stolen goods across national borders.
Librarian is the first part of a young woman's long journey set in an alternate, sparsely-populated world. When unfortunate circumstances leave a bizarre, out-of-place artifact of immense power in the sole custody of Lenna, she is forced to question her own wants, the source of her withdrawal from others, and the curious nature of the Continent's magic - all the while being the target of numerous political factions longing to possess the strange item bound to her by a child's promise.

I adore reading! and I doubly adore audio books they go everywhere with me!
I thoroughly enjoyed the STORY and look forward to the next book in the series, BUT...the recording quality of this audio book was a GREAT DISSERVICE! I don't know the technical aspect of recording books, but UGH!!The beginning half of the book actually sounds like the narrator was sitting in her bedroom, holding a microphone, taking loud sips of liquid via a straw while she recorded the book. I have purchased hundreds of books from this site and have never heard such blatantly poor recording quality.It actually makes me angry because this debut novel is a gem and I feel that the author will loose fans because of these technical issues. I do think Ms. Dadia has great potential as a narrator. I really hope someone "hears" this criticism and the second book doesn't suffer the same fate. I don't want to dissuade others from listening to this book, there was something magical about it, but please 'powers that be', get Ms. Dadia into a better studio setting!
