Assassin of Truths (Library Jumpers #3)
By Brenda Drake
Publication Date: February 6, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen
The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.
And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.
Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.
The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.a Rafflecopter giveaway
It’s been quite some time since I’ve actually been able to dive into a book. Lately it seems I’ve been preoccupied with life, work and all things non-literary....and basically it was no fun. So when the opportunity came up to review Brenda’s latest book in her Library Jumpers series I was thrilled!
Thankfully, I was not let down at all! Everything about Assassin of Truths drew me in, Gia was a character built with intention, strength and such determination it often left me anxious for the next page.
Without going into too much detail, or giving away any spoilers, I just want to touch on how fantastically Brenda wrote this plot out. I can name so many times within the plot that I was left with my mouth wide open! There wasn’t a detail that felt like it was too much, or a character who didn’t serve a distinct purpose. This entire novel was so beautifully written that I want to re-read it immediately! I just to feel what I felt while submerged in Gia’s world.
If you haven’t had the chance to pick up Brenda’s Library Jumpers series, I strongly suggest that you do so immediately!
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
