Rebel in the Library of Ever continues Zeno Alexander’s acclaimed middle-grade fantasy series with a dangerous takeover of the magical Library as our heroine fights to make knowledge free for everyone.

Lenora returns to the magical Library―which holds every book ever known on its shelves. But she discovers the Library is under new management, its incredible rooms and corridors turned dark and sinister.

She quickly connects with a secret resistance that’s trying to free knowledge from the shadows threatening it. Her new friends introduce her to an ancient lost city, hang-gliding, and mathematical beings larger than the universe itself. And they help her face the mysterious Board of new leaders―who are leading the Library into darkness.

Now it’s up to Lenora to prove that knowledge is always more powerful than ignorance and fear.

An Imprint Book

“Further proof that librarians are mighty in all universes.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Library of Ever:

“Zeno Alexander's The Library of Ever reads like someone mixed Neil Gaiman with Chris Grabenstein, then threw in an extra dash of charm. Reading it is like getting lost in an entire library full of books, and never wanting to leave!”―James Riley, New York Times bestselling author of the Story Thieves series

“Full of whimsy and pluck, The Library of Ever is a total delight!
―Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author 

“Uh oh,” said Lenora to Rosa. “I think we might have changed history.” She was worried now, for in books, changing history was almost never good.

“Do not fear,” replied Rosa. “We all change history with everything we do. This is why we should consider our actions carefully, as each one will affect the future to come. Should we join Lucy?”

For Lucy had gone straight to the table, where she joined a puzzled-looking librarian who was peering down at the assorted fragments, his chin in his hand, deep in thought. So deep that he had completely failed to notice two girls and an alien who had popped out of nowhere — or had they? Lenora was not sure how history changes worked exactly. But she was sure now that the objects on the table had been in the same box that Lucy had lost in the sea.

Giving up (for the moment) on figuring out how history-changing worked, Lenora went over to the table, Rosa beside her. She cleared her throat. “Excuse me,” she said to Cosmo (for that was the name on the librarian’s badge).

Cosmo flinched and, looking up, suddenly noticed Lenora and the others. “Oh!” he said. “My apologies. I have been studying the Antikythera mechanism so intently that I frequently fail to notice things around me.”

“That’s all right,” said Lenora. “So what exactly is this…Anti—kith—uh…”

“ant-ee-KITH-ur-uh,” said Cosmo. “It is a small Greek island, near which this ancient mechanism was discovered, all broken up into pieces at the bottom of the Aegean Sea. It is estimated to have been lost to the waters around 100 BC.”

“Sorry about that,” said Lucy.

About Zeno: 

After emerging from the shadows of the past, his history yet to be fully explained, Zeno Alexander spent years exploring the world's libraries before settling down in his lavish underground bunker, where he regularly hosts exquisite dinner parties and tends to his collection of extinct plants. His friendship with the famous librarian, Lenora, has turned into a series of biographical works devoted to chronicling her adventures.

MG Review of Gargantis (Malamander #2) by Thomas Taylor, illustrations by Tom Booth

Gargantis by Thomas Taylor, illustrations by Tom Booth 
Format: ARC paperback

Series: The Legends of Eerie-on-Sea
Publisher:  Walker Books US
Number of Pages:  336
Publishing:  May 12th, 2020
Source:  Publisher in exchange for an honest review

Opening Lines:  "If there's one thing hotels have alot of, it's strangers."  

Gargantis is the second book in The Legends of Eerie-on-Sea series.  Both books are the perfect kind of middle-grade read for anyone who enjoys seaside towns, mysterious parental disappearances, and in the case of the second book there are clockwork devices, and a grand hotel filled with quirky characters.  This time around Herbert Lemon and Violet also have to contend with an ominous storm raging over the town of Eerie-on-Sea and a legendary creature who might just be the reason behind the storm.

Herbert Lemon is the resident Lost-and Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, he's both diligent and duty-bound to match lost things to their owners.  But this time things start out a bit different when a mysterious man comes to Herbert not looking for something he's lost but instead brings him something he's found.   To be exact, a spiky, pearly white shell with a small hole, perhaps it's part of a necklace or maybe that small opening requires a key.  Either way, the man as Herbert now refers to as "Deep Hood," suddenly disappears after leaving the shell in Herbie's care.  After logging the item into his lost and foundery ledger, Herbert sets out to figure out just what the mysterious item is.  Joining in his quest is his best friend Violet.  Violet and Herbie first met when she climbed through Herbie's cellar window pleading for his help in the first book of the series.   Since then they've bonded over the fact that both of their parents are missing.  

As Herbert and Violet begin their sleuthing, there is a terrible storm raging over the town of Eerie-on-Sea.  Legend says that it is caused by a monster called Gargantis who resides in a cave somewhere below the town.  The monster was awakened when something very valuable was stolen from it.  Then Mrs. Fossil is found all tied up in netting, holding a large fish-shaped bottle with a message written on it in Eerie Script.  Everyone in town lays a claim to the fish-shaped bottle, but Herbie is tasked with deciding its fate.  A very important task as what he is holding might be just the thing that Gargantis has been looking for.  

I really adore this series. it's filled with quirky people and so far each book has featured some legendary monstrous creature, the Malmander and now Gargantis.  I found the latest creature was way more creepy and absolutely loved it.  Another thing I particularly enjoyed about this newest book was the additions of Blaze and his Uncle Squint Westerly.  They're fisherfolk who are tied to Gargantis and Blaze is instrumental in helping Herbert to overcome one of his fears.   Deep Hood or the man who declares he also has claims to the fish bottle was also a fun addition.  The illustrations by Tom Booth really make him look creepy and sinister, just loved them.    Violet is so adventurous and headstrong while Herbert is more of a thinker, somewhat timid.  They compliment each other so well.  I feel like there is still so much to learn about the disappearance of their parents, still so many unresolved questions that I was hoping to get answers to.  There were a few more clues or hints as to what happened to them, but I'm really hoping to learn more about them in future adventures.  Overall this is an exciting adventure filled with folklore and legends and wonderful characters.  Be sure to not miss out on the lovely black and white illustrations by Tom Booth too.

MG Fantasy review of The Key of Skeleton Peak (Legends of the Lost Causes #3) by Brad McLelland & Louis Sylvester

44281017The Key of Skeleton Peak (Legends of the Lost Causes #3) by Brad McLelland & Louis Sylvester
Format:  Hardcover
Henry Holt & Company
Number of Pages:  464
March 17th, 2020
Publisher in exchange for an honest review

Opening Line:  "For eighty-five days, Miguel Herrera rode on Chantico's weary back."

Publishers Description:    Dark magic meets the Old West in this third installment of the Legends of the Lost Causes, as a group of vigilante orphans go head-to-head against an outlaw sorcerer in pursuit of an ancient and powerful magical artifact!

Keech Blackwood and his fellow Lost Causes have won their share of battles, but the war against the ruthless sorcerer Reverend Rose still rages on.

This time, the Lost Causes face their most perilous trial yet: stopping Rose and his henchmen from retrieving an ancient, powerful object that would help return him to his full, frightening strength. As the vigilante orphans race to the dangerous depths of Skeleton Peak, the sight of the magical object, they’ll have to outmaneuver Rose’s most faithful—and menacing—ally: an inhuman creature spawned by darkness and shadow. But ever in pursuit of justice and vengeance for their fallen families, the Lost Causes won’t give up without a fight.

My Thoughts:  

I must say it's been a wonderful distraction and pleasure to read the Legends of Lost Causes series over the last month.  The world-building has been awesome and the authors really root you in the wild west.  Including even the smallest details like using cottonwood buds as a natural remedy for wound healing.  There's plenty of instances of traveling by horseback and all the perils associated with climbing up mountains.  With some exciting moments of danger thrown in to ramp the suspense.  

The Key of Skeleton Peak also contained an exceptionally dark character which I loved named Ignatio, who was one of Reverand Rose's lieutenants and created these creepy shadow demons by peeling off their tattoo from his body.   He's the kinda character of nightmares, but boy is he done so well.  And poor Keech, who seemed to be straying away from his Pa's teaches, causing his trail mates to distrust him, even questioning his motives.  Were his actions rash or was he really following his gut instincts?  Normally, he wouldn't be the kind of person who you'd think would barrel into danger, but Keech started to change.  He started to perform more dark magic and I was really concerned about what kind of influence it was having on him.  He made some horrible mistakes and put others in danger by performing dark magic, and it was hard not to worry that it would overwhelm him.  

But most of all I really enjoyed all the twists in the story and spending time with all the characters I've come to know and love across the series. Getting a better grasp on their past, be it in the flashback from part 2 where we learn how Miguel got the name Cutter or finding out his connection to Duck's family.  Or reading the excerpts from Doyle's journal punctuating the beginning of each chapter to fill in the missing pieces in Reverend Rose's connection to his Enforcers, including their deceptions and tricks to keep the magical artifacts hidden from him.  Or meeting the two new characters, the tracker named O'Brien and Achilles the dog.  Who aren't who you think they are at first.  Or maybe it's just the moments where I connected all the past tidbits of information and finally saw the hints for something I missed.  Even the moments that came as a total surprise.  It's truly a wonderful story that empathizes teamwork, sacrifice, and the spirit of friendship.  

 **A huge thank you to the Henry Holt & Company for the review copy.  And to Darby Karchut for agreeing to buddy read The Key to Skeleton Peak with me, it was such a pleasure to discuss the final book of the series with you.  **

MG Fantasy/Paranormal review of Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega

36601937. sy475 Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega
Format:  Ebook
Publisher:  Scholastic 

Number of Pages: 288
Published:  April 7th, 2020
Source:  Library 

I saw this description awhile back for Ghost Squad, "Coco meets Stranger Things with a hint of Ghostbusters." What an awesome combination right?  Lucky for me, my library agreed and approved my request to get a copy for the library.  

Opening line:  "Lightning struck, and a brilliant white light bloomed, illuminating the night sky outside of Lucely Luna's bedroom window."  

When Lucely was little, her mother abruptly left without a word.  Since then its been Lucely and her father, Simon.   Simon's a major history buff and runs a ghost tour company, but the business has been slow and the bank is close to foreclosing on their house.  Which is especially concerning to Lucely because if they have to move, she's worried about what will happen to the fireflies or spirits of her deceased family members who live in the Willow tree in their backyard.  You see, Lucely has a very special gift, she can see her family's spirits as ghosts of their human form, yet others only see them as fireflies.   If Lucely has to move, what will happen to her spirit family?  To her abuela, aunts, and uncles?   So Lucely sets out to help her father to raise the money for his loan.  But then strange things start to happen.  Lucely abuela's light appears to be flickering and she warns of a darkness approaching.  Hoping to fix her abuela Lucely casts a spell, but instead accidentally unleashes a curse.  Now malicious spirits are attacking St. Augustine and she must find a way to reverse the spell to save the town and to keep her families lights from flickering out for good.

Ghost Squad is a super adorable paranormal story filled with lovely pop culture references and homages to T.V. shows, and movies like Scooby-Doo, Ghostbusters, Goonies, even a moment that's reminiscent of the Dementor's Kiss in Harry Potter.  There's just so, so much to love here.  Like the emphasis on family and how Lucely's appear to her as ghosts of their former selves.  How she's fierce and determined to do anything to protect them.  She's not even deterred by visiting creepy cemeteries,  by fending off ghostly attacks, or even a Mayor with his glowing green eyes.  I loved the strong friendship she has with her best friend, Syd.  Syd was my absolute favorite character in the story, she's sassy, funny, an amateur ghosthunter, and most of all a loyal friend.  She made me laugh on more than one occasion and I especially love when she playfully tells Lucely, "It's every girl for herself in the ghost-pocalypse.  Sorry, not sorry!"  But even these girls recognize when they're over their heads and when it's time to consult Syd's grandmother, Babette, a powerful witch.  Babette is kinda like the granny in Hoodwinked with the feistiness of Miguel's Abuelita in Coco.  Aside from the fun characters, I also loved the Latinx representation and inclusion of passages written in Spanish as well as references to various Dominican foods that Lucely and her family prepare.  Overall, a very enjoyable read with humorous moments, and who couldn't love a story with a chubby cat named Chunk?

MG Nonfiction review of Into the Clouds: The Race to Climb the World's Most Dangerous Mountain by Tod Olson

44575077 Into the Clouds: The Race to Climb the World's Most Dangerous Mountain by Tod Olson
Format:  ARC Paperback
Publisher:  Scholastic Focus

Number of Pages: 288
Publishing:  April 21st, 2020
Source:  Publisher in exchange for an honest review

Praise for Into the Clouds:

“Gripping, well-researched, superb entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews

★“An absolute must-have for all readers looking for well-researched and gripping adventure nonfiction.”
—School Library Journal  (starred review)

Opening Line:  "All they needed were three good days."

The last book I've read by Tod Olson was Lost in the Antarctic:  The Doomed Voyage of the Endurance which was about a crew of men who in 1914  planned a voyage around the Antarctic, partway through their ship became trapped and their voyage turned into a harrowing story of survival.     

In his latest book, Into the Clouds, Tod Olson has another survival story, this one details the race to climb one of the world's deadliest and second- highest mountain, the K2.  His story is written across three distinct time periods.  Each treacherous climb includes details about the expedition team, how they not only survived the harsh mountainous range but also how they dealt with the harrowing cold temperatures.  It chronicles both their successes and failures.

Olson begins in 19o9  following the Duke of Abruzzi's failed climb.  Then moves the story into the First American Expedition of 1938 by a medical student named Charlie Houston.  While Houston and his men never made it to the summit, they laid the groundwork for future expeditions.  Even naming one of the most treacherous parts House's Chimney.  The second expedition was led by Fritz Wiessner.  A man who took huge risks with his crew, and had less experienced climbers.  His expedition was riddled with problems and was very disorganized.  In the end, Wiessner's team was also unsuccessful, losing three Sherpa's and one of its crewmembers, Dudley Wolfe.  Following Wiessner's climb questions began to mount regarding the efficacy of such climbs.  Blame was being thrown around regarding Wolfe's death.  In 1953, Charlie Houston was determined to take another crack at the mountain and set out with his team on the Second American Expedition.  

Here's where the crux of the story really seems to lie for me.  Charlie Houston had a very different leadership style to Weissner, he saw his team as having a "fellowship of the rope." He was determined to pick men who held to the same sort of standards that he did.  He really wanted to be the first team to make it to the summit.  Initially, everything seemed to be going in their favor.  As the expedition climbed higher and higher they moved their supplies up the hill, establishing a new campsite each time.  At some point all the teams had to deal with the harsh elements, winds gusting 80+ miles per hour, frozen toes due to the blistering cold snowfall and the constant risk of loose rocks or avalanches from above.  As they climbed, Houston and his crew found reminders of previous climbs and as with previous teams had to deal with the illness of one of their crew.  In their case, Gilkey developed blood clots in his leg.  Given Houston's medical training, he understood the risks of continuing onward and made the decision to turn back before making it to the summit.  Now the team was focused on getting safely back down the mountain so they wrapped Gilkey in sleeping bags as best they could and descended.  However, conditions on the mountain began to worsen and at one point they lost Gilkey as well.  Houston and his team eventually made their way home and in 1954 an Italian team made the climb in a military-style expedition.  Disappointed, Houston never climbed again.

As I was reading Into the Clouds I couldn't help thinking that no matter how strong you think you are, you need to respect nature/the elements.  Weissner seemed to believe that with his will alone he could make it to the summit.  But nature can be harsh and unpredictable.  I really appreciated that Olson also included explanations for why extreme climbers do what they do.  That some of these men had a deep desire to conquer the mountain.  Houston's was so strong that despite not succeeding the first time around, he even went back.  It's remarkable when you think about all that they had to endure up on the mountain, breaking a new campsite on the side of a cliff hoping that the wind wouldn't drag them off or they wouldn't get buried by the snow.  Spending days cramped in their tent unable to move trying to make sure that the people in the tent next to yours are still out there.  Suffering from hunger and thirst.  Even just the will and strength to hang on when you're tied to someone who's hanging at the end of your line.  

 Included in the back of the book are a detailed source reference list and photographs of some of the equipment the men used.  And throughout the text, there are many photographs of the men and Sherpa's who went on the climbs.  I was really fascinated with how they tested their ropes to ensure that it could hold the combined weight of the men and the slow determined process they took to allow each of them to acclimate to the altitude.  A remarkable story of survival and a very detailed account of these men's journey.   I highly recommend it.       **A huge thank you to the Scholastic Focus and Blue Slip Media for the review copy. **

MG review of The Bookwanderers (Pages & Co. #1) by Anna James, Illustrated by Paola Escobar

The Bookwanderers (Pages & Co #1) by Anna James, Illustrations by Paola Escobar
Format:  Paperback
Puffin books
Number of Pages:  304
March 3rd, 2020

Publishers Description: Eleven-year-old Tilly has lived above her grandparents' bookshop ever since her mother disappeared shortly after she was born. Like the rest of her family, Tilly loves nothing more than to escape into the pages of her favorite stories.

One day Tilly realizes that classic children's characters are appearing in the shop through the magic of `book wandering' - crossing over from the page into real life.

With the help of Anne of Green Gables and Alice in Wonderland. Tilly is determined to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother all those years ago, so she bravely steps into the unknown, unsure of what adventure lies ahead and what dangers she may face.

 Opening Line:  "Matilda Pages pushed open the door of Pages & Co. and breathed in deeply, taking in the familiar scent of just blown out candles, dark chocolate, and of course books."  

Pages & Company sounds so cozy and inviting, it makes me want to curl up with the bookshop cat, read books, eat scones and sip tea.  I'm probably not the only person who'd love to have a bookstore filled to the brim with bookcase after bookcase of fantasy books.  Plus there's the bonus of there being a cafe with a pastry chef who draws inspiration for his desserts from books.  Doesn't that sound heavenly?       

Tilly is an avid reader after my own heart.  I loved that the two books she has a special connection with are Alice in Wonderland and Anne of Green Gables.  James wonderfully captures the voices of Alice and Anne, especially the way Anne talks about her friends as kindred spirits.  And Escobar's silhouette illustrations every few pages are just gorgeous.  I loved the ones from Alice in Wonderland.  

Tilly craves adventure and now that she's on the outs with her best friend, she hasn't found just the right kind of friend yet. Then she meets Oskar, whose mother runs a bakery near her grandparent's store.  More heavenly treats, yum.  Oskar's kind and also up for some adventuring and together they begin to explore the magic of book wandering.  Tilly is first to interact with Alice in Wonderland and Anne from Green Gables who show up one day in her grandparent's bookstore.  Eventually, she is actually drawn into the pages of the story by the characters, attending the Mad Hatters tea party,  and going with Oskar to school with Anne.    

The actual magic behind book wandering is quite intriguing, filled with all sorts of rules on how to safely wander amongst the pages.  There's a part of me that wished this would've come much earlier in the story, but I certainly can see that the mystery surrounding Tilly's mother's disappearance was important to develop too.  Tilly and Oskar aren't fully trained when they start wandering into books and therefore put themselves at great risk for being trapped inside the story, they even draw the attention of creepy Mr. Enoch Chalk, a reference librarian from the Underlibrary.  I like that the story isn't neat and tidy, Tilly and Oskar can't just jump into and out of a story.  Having some real risks kept things interesting.   There are plenty of dangers and even Tilly and Oskar recognize that it would be foolish to adventure into Jurrasic Park.

Overall, this was an adorable story for people who love books about books.  It's a cozy story and a wonderful introduction to the next book...

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents the third book in the Hindu-based, best-selling Pandava series by Roshani Chokshi, in which Aru and her cohorts, Mini, Brynne, and Aiden—and now a pair of twins—each search the Otherworld for Kalpavriksha, the wish-granting tree.

War between the devas and the demons is imminent, and the Otherworld is on high alert. When intelligence from the human world reveals that the Sleeper is holding a powerful clairvoyant and her sister captive, 14-year-old Aru and her friends launch a search-and-rescue mission. The captives, a pair of twins, turn out to be the newest Pandava sisters, though, according to a prophecy, one sister is not true.

During the celebration of Holi, the heavenly attendants stage a massage PR rebranding campaign to convince everyone that the Pandavas are to be trusted. As much as Aru relishes the attention, she fears that she is destined to bring destruction to her sisters, as the Sleeper has predicted. Aru believes that the only way to prove her reputation is to find the Kalpavriksha, the wish-granting tree that came out of the Ocean of Milk when it was churned. If she can reach it before the Sleeper, perhaps she can turn everything around with one wish.
Careful what you wish for, Aru . . .

Excerpt From ARU SHAH AND THE TREE OF WISHES (Pandava Quartet #3)


Aru Shah had a gigantic lightning bolt, and she really wanted to use it.
“Please don’t, Shah,” begged her friend Aiden. “If you electrocute the targets with Vajra . . . we’ve blown this Pandava mission.”
“Puh-leeze,” said Aru, hoping she sounded more confident than she felt. “I’m the daughter of the god of thunder and lightning. Electricity is practically my thing.”
“Yesterday you stuck a fork in the toaster,” pointed out Aiden.
“It was just for a second, and it was holding my breakfast prisoner.”
A gust of wind hit the back of Aru’s head, and she turned to see a huge eagle with sapphire-colored feathers swooping toward them. The bird dove to the ground and in a flash of blue light transformed into Brynne, her soul sister and the daughter of the god of the wind.
“No visuals on the targets,” Brynne said. “Also, Aiden’s right. I seriously don’t trust you around electricity.”

Roshani Chokshi is the author of the instant New York Times best-selling books in the Pandava series, Aru Shah and the End of Time, and its sequel, Aru Shah and the Song of Death. She also wrote the New York Times best-selling YA books The Star-Touched Queen and The Gilded Wolves. She studied fairy tales in college, and she has a pet luck dragon that looks suspiciously like a Great Pyrenees dog. The Pandava novels were inspired by the stories her grandmother told her as well as Roshani's all-consuming love for Sailor Moon. She lives in the south and says "y'all," but she doesn't really have a Southern accent. Her Twitter handle is @roshani_chokshi.
