Within the first chapter our hero is warned by his incendiary spider of approaching vampires. He fights them off with a ray gun and is rescued by a Dryad. What’s not to love? This is pure, shameless escapism, the book every lonely teenager wishes was real. A Libriomancer is a type of wizard who can reach into a book and pull out objects. You want a magic sword? A healing potion? No problem. And this is just the start. There is so much to this world, layers of deceit hiding layers of magic, that this first volume only scratches the surface and I am therefore overjoyed that there will be another. This book does not contain a dull moment, it rattles along from one impossible adventure to the next, all narrated by the very appealing oddball Isaac Vainio. It’s fast, exciting, amusing and delightful. I couldn’t put it down.

Synopsis

Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

Isaac Vainio is a Libriomancer, a member of a secret society founded five centuries ago by Johannes Gutenberg. As such, he is gifted with the magical ability to reach into books and draw forth objects. But when Gutenberg vanishes without a trace, Isaac finds himself pitted against everything from vampires to a sinister, nameless foe who is bent on revealing magic to the world at large...and at any cost.
