The first novel in Caine’s new series, called The Great Library, starts out with some lovely world building. Set in the not-so-distant future, the premise is that the ancient Library at Alexandria was never destroyed and grew to be the most powerful - and oppressive - force in the world. In this world, personal ownership of books is illegal. So when book smuggler Jess Brightwell becomes a Librarian, things get a bit awkward with his family. We learn how he and his fellow new recruits struggle against the library’s tough training, find romance, go to war, and, ultimately, create a machine that could destroy the center of the Library’s authority. But the Library won’t stand idly by and let that happen … Readers will find out more next year when the second book comes out. I’ll definitely be one of the ones eagerly awaiting its appearance.
