The Fall of the Readers by Django Wexler (December 5, 2017 by Kathy Dawson Books)

While I don’t read a lot of Middle Grade books, this is one of the few series I faithfully follow. After all it’s by Django Wexler, one of my favorite authors, whose adult fantasy series The Shadow Campaigns I simply adore. Sadly, The Fall of the Readers will mark the final volume of the Forbidden Library series, but I’m definitely still looking forward to the story conclusion!

“The final book in the exciting fantasy adventure series featuring a strong heroine who grows from reader to leader in a world where magic is contained and controlled through books.

When Alice defeated her uncle Geryon and declared war on the totalitarian ways of the Old Readers, she knew she would have a hard fight ahead. What she didn’t anticipate was how ruthless the Old Readers would be. All the creatures she promised to help are being threatened, and slowly all of Alice’s defenses, emotional and physical, are being worn away. So when Ending (the giant cat-like creature who helps rule the magical labyrinth in Geryon’s library) hints at a dangerous final solution, Alice jumps at the chance, no matter the cost to her life. She and her friends—a fire sprite, Ashes the cat, and the other young Readers she met during her previous adventures—go on a quest to free the one creature possibly strong enough to overturn the Old Readers once and for all.

But Alice has forgotten one crucial thing: Ending is a cat, and cats are not known to be trustworthy. And Ending has plans of her own…”

  1. I’m sad to say I haven’t read any Wexler but I know you love this series, glad to see there’s one more book coming out. Hey, at least you get four instead of the traditional three!

  2. Oh-oh sounds like a betrayal in the works, judging from the synopsis. Pesky cats, never can trust em! lol this does sound good though, and I remember seeing the Forbidden Library around.
