Publisher's Summary

In Ink and Bone, New York Times best-selling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library - and rewrite history.

With an iron fist, the Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good. Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.

Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library's deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London. But Jess' home isn't safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon Jess must choose between his friends, his family, and the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control.

    "Strong Sequel!"

    Rachel Caine did not disappoint. Loved Ink & Bone ... Paper & Fire is just as good. No Book 2 let down. Action, adventure - excellent writing with a few twists. Still love the narrator. Can't wait for book 3!

    "Ending is cut off"

    I loved the continuation of book one, but am marking it down because it ends by cutting off in the middle of a scene!!!!!!!

    "Rachel Caine is magnificent!"

    I love Rachel Caine. Jess and his friends are some of the best characters I have "met" in awhile. The story line is unique and all around awesome. I cannot wait to get ahold of her next book in this series.

    Story
    "Story Heats Up With Second Installment"

    As is the case with trilogies, the second book was not as good as the first, but still interesting. The library students from the first book are now serving separately at their assignments, but a twist brings them back together again with their old professor. The once seemingly bright world of the library is looking darker and darker. Looking forward to the conclusion.

    "Better than the first book, spellbinding!"

    I strongly recommend reading the series in order, it will help by laying the groundwork for this one. . Having been drawn in by Ink and Bone, this book was exciting, and hard to let go, I can't wait for the third book
