Another day, another book review. As I am going through my pile of books I received with subscription boxes, I found this one to stand out. The cover art is stunning, and my edition has sprayed edges that sparkle. If that hadn’t been enough to get me excited, the story being set in a library surely did the trick!
Elisabeth’s believes are challenged when somebody breaks into the library – her home – and releases a dangerous grimoire. A book filled with magic that has gone rogue is a strong opponent to face, but Elisabeth is willing to make a stand…
I’ll keep it short: I loved it. Well, I’m not 100% sure about the end but otherwise, it is a wonderful book.
There’s humor, there’s tragedy, there are plot twists, libraries, talking books, and magic. What else could you want?
Margaret Rogerson’s world is enchanting and different than what I’ve encountered to far. I wish I could jump right in!
Once I got started, it was almost impossible to put the book down. I read most of it in one sitting and I desperately needed to know how this story would end.
The characters are amazing and I most definitely want to be friends with them. We have the main character Elisabeth who cares for books just as much as I do (and who is clumsy just like I am) and isn’t afraid to face a challenge.
Another one of my favorite characters is Nathaniel. His dry humor just takes the cake and made me laugh out loud so many times.
And then there’s Silas… I can’t say much about him without spoilers but he is certainly fascinating!
Furthermore, I appreciate that although Rogerson included romance in this novel is takes a backseat. I mean, there are more important things going on and the characters clearly see that the same way.
If I am honest, I didn’t know what the book would be about before I picked it up. I looked at the cover, was enchanted and dived right in. So I am glad the plot was down my alley!
Sorcery of Thorns is one of my favorite books I got with a subscription box so far. The story is fascinating and unique, the world-building is captivating and the characters amiable. Not much to criticize here!
