When Isaac Vainio helped to reveal magic to the world, he dreamed of a utopian future, a new millennium of magical prosperity. One year later, things aren't going quite as he'd hoped. An organization known as Vanguard, made up of magical creatures and ex-Porters, wants open war with the mundane world. Isaac's own government is incarcerating "potential supernatural enemies" in prisons and internment camps. And Isaac finds himself targeted by all sides.
It's a war that will soon envelop the world, and the key to victory may lie with Isaac himself, as he struggles to incorporate everything he's learned into a new, more powerful form of libriomancy. Surrounded by betrayal and political intrigue, Isaac and a ragtag group of allies must evade pursuit both magical and mundane, expose a conspiracy by some of the most powerful people in the world, and find a path to a better future. But what will that future cost Isaac and the ones he loves?

I absolutely love the Libriomancer series. This book did not disappoint. It took me a few chapters to adjust to the switch in narrative times, now I'm just sad that I have to wait for the next book!
I live to ride my bike.
Not for me. I even went back to read the first in the series and that sill did not make this any better.
Loved this engrossing tale as Isaac navigates Magical and Mundane. Can they survive together? Maybe.....
Yes, the narrator brings Isaac to life and helped me connect to him as a main character much better.
These characters and this world are fantastic and it was a lot of fun to see the final leg of Isaac's journey.
He does a great job with most of the female voices while giving everyone a unique voice so I could tell all the characters apart.
Hines' writing definitely makes me laugh and cry at times. The snarky quips are great!
I didn't like how DeVries did Lena's voice, she sounded rather overdone and weird, but otherwise the narration was great.
Very well written! It's engaging all the way through! The author is imaginative and takes a look at things differently. His sense of humor in writing brings a refreshing ambience to his settings and he has not yet failed to bring a well written novel to readers.
The reader is excellent! Correct pronunciations, varying voices which he keeps separated between charachters, has a good grasp of the story.
