This is the third and final novel in this magical, fast paced, action packed adventure and I definitely recommend reading the other books before starting this one. Just imagine that, if you find the right books and know the correct words, you could use it to take you from one library to another somewhere else in the world . . . . These books – and the libraries they are in – are protected by a group of magical knights known as Sentinels. Obviously, there are enemies out to misuse the books and libraries (or the Sentinels would be out of a job!) and it is the battle between these opposing forces that is key to the trilogy. I’m wary of commenting on specific part of this story as there’s a distinct danger of inadvertently revealing spoilers from earlier stories, so I’ll let you read it (or the blurb) to have an idea about what happens in this book.

The story still has Gia Keams as the main character. She has grown and matured through the series and the story is related from her point of view, helping the reader identify with her character and to understand some of her teenage angst and turmoil as she faces dangers and dilemmas as well as being involved in something of a love triangle! The author is an expert at using words to paint vivid images in the imagination of her readers, bringing the excitement and action to life. It is a great finale to a unique young adult trilogy that I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys magical adventures with a hint of romance.

I requested and received a copy of this novel. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis

The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.

And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.

Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.

The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

The Library Jumpers series is best enjoyed in order.
