"Rachel Caine transports the reader to an imaginary future world where a Great Library controls all knowledge and the private ownership of printed books is a radical, dangerous practice."--Deborah Harkness, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches "Dark, riveting, heart-in-the-throat storytelling, with characters who caught me up and hold me even now.
