This book has everything I love: fantasy, horror, romance, suspense, action, and humor.
“Sorcery of Thorns” captivated my attention immediately after reading the storyline. Margaret Rogerson created a fantastic world in which libraries store dangerous grimoires full of dark power and books have a tendency to transform into deadly demonic beasts. (Can you see why I love it yet? ).
In this world, libraries function more like high security prisons built to contain and protect the world’s most dangerous books and weapons. I loved how this is a book about books and you’re able to see the authors love for them in her writing. The story begins so good that just the first pages had me reading non stop.
“Sorcery of Thorns” follows the adventures of the librarian Elisabeth Scrivener, when she ends up in the middle of a sabotage and is forced to work with her sworn enemy, Nathaniel Thorn, to unravel the mysteries and conspiracies regarding the crimes around town before the deadliest evil is summoned to the world. A single event has them searching for the true culprit in an effort to exonerate Elisabeth from the huge murder, and in so doing, she uncovers a much larger malevolent plot at hand.
