Summary

Lenna Faircloth thought she was content enough to be junior librarian at one of the grandest libraries on the Continent, so long as at the end of the day she can enjoy a glass (or two) of wine and some decent shut-eye. Reticent and unconcerned with trivial matters, Lenna is almost laughably nonplussed the day her childhood friend, Gilbert, appears at her door, asking her to help smuggle stolen goods across national borders.

Librarian is the first part of a young woman's long journey set in an alternate, sparsely-populated world. When unfortunate circumstances leave a bizarre, out-of-place artifact of immense power in the sole custody of Lenna, she is forced to question her own wants, the source of her withdrawal from others, and the curious nature of the Continent's magic - all the while being the target of numerous political factions longing to possess the strange item bound to her by a child's promise.

Anisha Dadia

I love the narrator's voice. its just terrific. She deserves a sound booth to read in as there are background noises. The story is ok. The main character is interesting and the plot is pretty typical, just a nice read.

Good Story. Bad Recording

I enjoyed the story, but the recording quality was all over the place. Very distracting.

Loved the book and the narrator

A fresh story and the narrator was a perfect fit for this book.
I'm so glad that this is a series! On to book two!
