Waiting on Wednesday #96: Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that I am anxiously awaiting is:

Ink and Bone
by Rachel Caine


In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time...

Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly - but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family's spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library's service.

When he inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life - and soon both heretics and books will burn...


Why I Can't Wait

This book just sounds good and intriguing.

  1. Rachel Caine can write no wrong- this sounds like another wonderful book from one of my favorite author's. It's going to be awesome, I'm sure. But why must we wait? Happy reading!

    My WOW:

  2. Wow! What a great premise for a book! I love alternate universes, and I'm still bitter about the Great Library of Alexandria being destroyed, so this sounds like the perfect plot!
