Ash and Quill

Rachel Caine

The unforgettable characters from Paper and Fire (2016) unite to save the Great Library of Alexandria from itself. Book smuggler Jess Brightwell and his trouble-making Scholars have become fugitives from the immensely powerful Library that hoards all the knowledge of the world. The exiles must flee to Philadelphia where they're imprisoned by the fanatical Burners who destroy books rather than submit to the Library’s rule. Jess and his friends decide to strike a bargain with the leader of the Burners and share their knowledge of an illegal machine that could destroy the Library's hold over the populace. But their time is running out and Jess knows that saving the Library could cost them their lives!
