Book Review: The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

61X2aU4fzkL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_I hit a home run at the library this week with The Library at Mount Char! Seriously, Mr. Scott Hawkins, we want more. This story is twisted and provocative and so satisfying it feels like a sin.

The Library at Mount Char is a web of lies, secrets, and unimaginable power. When you get tangled inside it with Hawkins’ vivid characters, you slip into this world where the scale measuring the mighty and the meek slips off balance. Father is missing, and Carolyn and her mystically talented siblings are forced out of the Library with the world at their mercy to try to solve the mystery. With the help of a few friends Carolyn is unraveling the past and Father’s enigmatic identity.

I highly recommend The Library at Mount Char. For me, the story was a moving exploration of loyalty, duty, and fear. It’s saturating and witty and stays with you long after the last page. Read this book!
