Title: Thief of Lies (#1 The Library Jumpers Series)
Author: Brenda Drake
Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.
I give this book 5 out of 5 Magical Stars!!!💖💛💙💚💜!!!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this BOOK!!!💖💛💙💚💜 When I requested copies of this series from the publisher I was definitely intrigued but the results I received absolutely blew me away! This has to be one of my all time favorite fantasy books of all time now! I just could not put this fantasy masterpiece down and it was well worth the lost sleep!
I am so thankful for the recommendation from my friends Kim and Carrie’s recommendation of this book! Brenda Drake can truly work magic!
I loved the characters in this story! I loved Gia, Afton and Nick together from the beginning and seeing them grow was awesome. On the mystical romance side for Gia, I fell in love with Arik but when I met Bastian I fell head over heels!
Omg and the setting was just AMAZING! I mean the world’s most beautiful libraries, a magical world and Boston! I loved seeing how different magical lesson unfolded.
I really loved Gia as a character she was so realistic! She had so many insecurites but was so strong. Gia was genuine and didn’t even realize how much magic she really held in so many ways.
I loved the culture of the fantasy world and how the two worlds collided! It was just so magical and I loved learning about the new types of mystikal creatures and people!
So to wrap everything up, I can’t recommend or sing enough praises of this book! Thanks so much Ms. Drake for the adventure of a lifetime! I have to go right into the next one! This book is Dani-approved!💖
Brenda Drake is a New York Times bestselling author of young adult fiction. She 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. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
