Book Review: The Library of the Unwritten – A.J. Hackwith*

All of humanity’s unwritten books and stories are housed in a wing of Hell’s Library. In Hell but not part of it, instead the wing is under the Librarian – Claire is the current post holder and sh6es having a terrible day.

A book has escaped and she and her assistant Brevity, a former Muse, must recapture the book before it causes too much trouble.

Things are never that straightforward and soon Claire and Brevity, accompanied by a very junior demon called Leto, and pursued by a couple of angels, are hunting for a book rumoured to be written Lucifer himself.

This was a really fun read, a total romp and right up my street, as I love books set in magical libraries like this, where books and librarians are more than they appear.

The plot is clever, the characters intriguing and I had a little giggle every now and then.

If you’re a fan of the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman, The Archived series by V.E. Schwab or The Chronicles of St Mary’s by Jodi Taylor you’ll enjoy this.

*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book with no requirement to review, all words and opinions remain my own.
