    THIS BOOK IS SMOKING HOT BECAUSE IT S ABOUT LIBRARY FROM HELL So giving my four hellish, hot tish, racks of book ish and damsel in distress ish stars coming up with a cup of white tea sugar, milk please Well, I thanked my lucky stars and I was about to write a long thank you letter to NetGalley to not reject me this time and send this book I possibly thought to barter my jean collection to have this book or sale my soul but thankfully I didn t need to do that Who buys 57 jeans a year Me Who lost her soul for Chardonnay Yeah, again me Think about a library in hell, full of characters trapped in because of their unfinished books, being called damsel in distress Same library has a strict, tough librarian forget about the bespectacled, sexy, intellectual models fantasized by horny men population , once upon a time is also a writer, left her unfinished books, fell in love with one of her characters and lost everything she had, convicted herself to be guardian of the books in hell forever.Now the bible of hell is out there and she needed to find it before the fallen angel of Ramiel Her team members to achieve this goal a hero, who escaped from the library to find his own writer and convinced her to finish the book they had a small romantic interaction , a clever, skillful muse Brevity and demon courier but some parts of him are still human Leto and hot but shady arcanist Andras.I enjoyed the authors imagination and I visualized this book as a perfect limited series Think about it With the art director of Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, you may see a beautiful world of books and its characters had some many unfinished business A long and dangerous journey from Valhalla to the hells gates, never ending battle of angels and demons This time you have to chant for the hell raisers because interestingly they are the good ones I already made my dream cast for this project Claire Librarian of hell Claire FoyBrevity muse Jodie Comer all time favorite villanelle could show her inspirational side Andras arcanist Go back and forth between Michael Fassbender and Tom EllisHero Henry Cavill you couldn t find better hero than superman Leto Nick Jonas no no kidding, Harry Styles, okay no teasing, my best candidate is Asa Butterfield Beatrice Rachel Weisz if 007 let his wife join my visualized brain series Ramiel David Tennant Same man could be Crowley, Doctor Who, Killgrave and killed all those performances Yes this man is not real human, he could only be a watcher Uriel Are you kidding me Of course EMMA THOMPSON I had some hard times to connect with the characters because they were so tough, a little merciless and selfish so their lack of compassion except librarian s protectiveness about Leto a little irritated me But at least my visual cast solves this problem and stop me punch them.As a summary, strong plot, fast paced, well rounded development, vivid characters and this book is about books so how could I not like it So much special thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing to send me this wonderful ARC COPY in exchange my honest review and make me sing Walking on Sunshine

    This was such a unique spin on the old librarians libraries inside of books trope, and I found myself quite taken with the characters I do think this works well as a standalone novel, and it feels a stretch to push this into a series, but I m open to seeing where this goes Full review to come In the first book in a brilliant new fantasy series, books that aren t finished by their authors reside in the Library of the Unwritten in Hell, and it is up to the Librarian to track down any restless characters who emerge from those unfinished stories In this house, we stan books about libraries Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

    An original book about books The Library of the Unwritten is the first in a new fantasy series The premise Books that are not finished by authors reside in the Library of the Unwritten in Hell The job of the Librarian Tracking down any of the characters who may emerge from the stories.Claire has been the Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing for many years It s her job to do the mundane mostly repairing books and organizing them, but every once in a while, a character gets loose, and she has to find him or her In fact, a Hero escapes from a book and is in search of the author Claire has some help to assist her in tracking him down.But things go awry in a very bad way Aww, I loved these characters They were witty and clever with fun banter The first half of the book clipped along and the ending Well, it ended with a big ole bang There s so much to look forward to in the next installment and yet this book ended in a satisfactory way Kudos to the author for that Kudos to her for the whole thing I received a complimentary copy All opinions are my own.Many of my reviews can also be found on my blog www.jennifertarheelreader.com

    Great supernatural adventure terrific cast of charactersThis book is very well written, and has everything I am coming to love in the fantasy genre It has a wonderful adventure with twists and turns and unpredictable events It has spectacular characters that are fully developed and none of them turn out to be what they first appear to be It has an awesomely refreshing and original storyline with plenty of humor, suspense, mystery and stumbling blocks put in the way There all sorts of supernatural happenings, it is crazy that so many different things are in one book but it all fits so perfectly together.The library of the unwritten it a library located in Hell Though it is not technically part of Hell s domain, it just resides there This is due to the fact that it contains all the books that are unwritten form authors living, dead and some yet to live These works are potential, not actual Stories want to change, and it is a librarian s job to preserve them that s the natural order of things The Unwritten Wing of the Library, for all its infinite magic and mystery, is in some ways a futile project No story, written or unwritten, is static Left abandoned too long and given the right stimulation, a book goes wrong in the head It is a story s natural ambition to wake up and start telling itself to the world This, of course, is a buggered pain in the arse Librarian Fleur Michel, 1782 CE, Unwritten Wing, Librarian s Log entry, Personal Ephemera and Errata Claire Hadley is the current librarian and takes her job very seriously, she keeps the library in tip top shape, repairing old books and making sure stories stay in their pages When a book grows restless it can try to escape in the form of one of the characters and she is in charge of corralling them and making sure they get back in their books before any damage is done One day Claire and her assistant, a former muse named Brevity get a visit from a teenage demon named Leto, who gives them a message that a book has is missing When books escapes the library they generally go to meet their author in order to try to get the author to write the story, but that can be detrimental and damaging to the book So the Claire, Brevity and Leto go off to Earth to find the character book In this case it is a Hero and they find him with the author They end up taking him, but as they are leaving they cross paths with an Angel named Ramiel, looking for the Devil s Bible He thinks they are on Earth to retrieve it.Ramiel had a piece of the Devils Bible Codex , and in a struggle Leto gets it before they return to the library When Claire figures out what it is, they realize they have to get it before heaven doe or there will be a war between Heaven and Hell So along with Claire s former mentor Andras who was once a Hell Duke of Hell, but now is in charge of another wing of the library, they all set out to find the missing pages of the Codex.As the journey begins, we have a ragtag group, with Claire being a very prim and proper rule follower, Hero is the handsome romantic fantasy hero from a book, Brevity is a young happy go lucky assistant who defers to Claire for everything, Leto is a new demon and a teenager who is human than demon and is afraid of almost everything, and Andras who is basically a mentor that Claire trusts They have to find the pages within a certain timeframe and they have Angels on their tails who are also looking for the same thing Plus they are doing it on the sly, because Lucifer probably wouldn t like the embarrassment of knowing this is out there They get into some very complicated and interesting situations, the book is both fun and impressive I recommend it to anyone who likes an adventure story especially a paranormal one There are Angels, Demons, Humans, Hellhounds, Gargoyles, Hero s and Damsels from books, Viking warriors, and other monsters from Hell Somehow it all fits together without being tacky Like I said earlier, just about every one of the main characters, including the Angels ends up being different than the original impression, or maybe if not difficult, then along the way we find out things about them or we see them act in ways that are surprising It is nice that not everything is as you think and people or souls can be unpredictable and step up when it counts.Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    A library filled with books whose authors have not finished writing them is one of the most creative premises I ve ever seen So here for this.

    When I read the blurb, I knew straightaway I needed to read the book One of my favourite books ever Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov has a famous line Manuscripts don t burn The premise of this first book in a new fantasy series echoed Bulgakov s words somewhere, in a place not governed by earthly laws of logic or order, there exists a library of stories that might or might not find their way into existence..Claire Hadley is Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing there is also another wing called Arcane with its own head supervisor, but about it later She has been doing her job for three decades ever since her predecessor disappeared into nowhere On surface, Claire appears to be quite stern, even ruthless In order to make a restless book character return to its unwritten story, she sometimes has to damage it with surgical precision and zero hesitation When a nervous teenage demon Leto appears in the library with an order to track an escaped hero who has already made his way to the Earth, Claire knows she has no time to waste Leto and Claire are given day passes, while Brevity isn t it a fantastic name for a story like this , Claire s assistant, can leave and come back to the Library in a much flexible manner They succeed in tracking the fugitive, who they decide to call simply Hero, but on their way back things get complicated A fallen angel Ramiel, who has been granted a possibility to enter the Heaven Gates again if he tracks a dark and dangerous artefact, confronts and accuses them of being in the posessession of the object he is searching for Although Claire and Leto escape, on their return to the Library Claire launches her own investigation and realises she must retrieve the book, otherwise the world of Mortals might be destroyed in the war between Heaven and Hell To do that she must enlist the help of the Head of the Arcane Wing, her former mentor.Apart from a very original premise and gripping plot, the book has a great character cast Claire Hadley, the Librarian, is very humane and willing and able to see the best in everybody she meets In this world, souls judge themselves, so you will wonder why she ended up punishing herself by deciding she needed to pay for her sins by becoming a librarian in Hell tenant, not servant the Library is located in Hell, but is not a part of it You ve got to admire the wit of the author who gave her apprentice such a wonderful name Brevity Brevity is a former muse and is charming beyond description There s a lot to Hero than just a pretty face and bravado Letoyou have to earn his trust will Claire succeed in proving herself to this half demon lhalf sulky teenager There are twists and turns, traps and betrayals to watch out for I loved the characters brief soujourn in Valhalla and Claire s brilliant duel with the local bard, but there are other realms that get explored in this imaginative book This is an adventure story and a quest, so it will be appreciated by fans of fantasy and paranormal fiction The twist at the end promises an interesting sequel, where I hope we ll find out secrets from Claire s past as well as about the Library itself.Thank you to Edelweiss and Ace Penguin Publishing Group for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinion.

    I was very excited by the concept of the Library of the Unwritten and was eager to read it We learn that in this library, an unwritten book can wake up, manifest as one of its character and escape from the book It was the Librarian s responsibility to track down the escapee and return him or her to its pages The worst thing that can happen is for the character to make contact with the author and influence them and their writing, thereby potentially changing the book and it s direction, which may not bode well for the character s return to its pages Further, the longer the character experiences life outside the book, the he or she could change and as a result, no longer fit in the book.The idea of escaped characters from unwritten books is very imaginative and my favorite part of The Library of the Unwritten was following the escapee named Hero But I found the reading of this book to be a major chore It took very little for me to be distracted from reading it and putting off picking it back up again For me, the plot meandered and never fully pulled me in I do enjoy science fiction fantasy novels but this one just did not satisfy me I am not exactly sure why I had so much trouble reading The Library of the Unwritten but overall, the execution of this appealing premise did not work for me Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group Ace and NetGalley for an advance reader copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review All my opinions are my own This is one where I m not sure how this is gonna be a series I mean, I can see a few threads but on a whole it escapes me. shrugs The whole set up is creative I loved the idea of the library and would have loved to see it in person.Claire s names she had for Lucifer were amusing Andras was an interesting character Ramiel was annoying at first but he grew on me Uriel I wanted to drop kick into the mouth path of Smaug. despite what reasoning she had.Brevity I was indifferent to for most of the book, and Leto I couldn t quite get attached to for some reason.Not much to say, only because not sure if I like it or not if that makes sense On one hand I enjoyed myself, but on the other still mulling things over.One I would probably re read in the future to see if my opinion changes time to read only means I was too tired and sick to concentrate properly this weather has been doing a number on my head and sinuses
