If you didn’t know already, The Librarians is a show on TNT (you can find my previous post about it HERE) and this book is sort of like a companion story for said show. In fact, this is already the second book about them, however, I haven’t read the other one yet (as I don’t believe it’s truly necessary to read them in the right order seen as they are closed stories, kind of like episodes).

I want to start by saying that Greg Cox managed extremely well in capturing the voices of the different characters! They feel exactly like the people I saw on screen, as well as their relationships with each other and that’s already something I appreciate very much. Now that might make you believe that you have to watch the show beforehand to enjoy this book, but if you are up for riddles, rhymes and adventuring, I think you can enjoy the book without actually having seen an episode. You might miss a couple references to previous storylines or happenings from the past, but you will still be able to get the general gist of things.

All in all, this was a really fun ride! The whole tale was dynamic and well crafted, although a bit predictable. I found that the switch of perspective became a little formulaic at times, but it doesn’t really take away from the enjoyment. It’s a page turner for sure, simply because you want to know if you are right with your theories or not. I would definitely read more upcoming tales from our Librarians, because let’s face it, you can never have enough Cassandra, Ezekiel and Stone!

Fazit: 3.5/5 stars! Fast-paced adventure!

Do you watch the Librarians? Would you like to read a book about them?

  1. If you know how to tell a good story, even a predictable or formulaic story can be great. Apparently you thought so here with this story. I wish I found more stories like this. Some of the media I’ve taken in lately have unfortunately been very predictable, and not in a good way.

    • Well, have you ever watched the The Librarian movies? Because the show is like a continuation of that. I was really into the movies back in the day. It’s all kind of silly and they don’t always have the most production value, but it’s fun. The first movie is still my favourite though.
      If you really need a new show and you haven’t watched it yet, WATCH IMPOSTERS! Or watch One Day at a Time?
