#BookReview: Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by @brendadrake #NetGalley




About the Book: Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are destroyed.

About the Author: Brenda Drake is a New York Times bestselling author of young adult fiction. She grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

Notes and Opinions:  I got this yesterday and I just couldn't stop reading it. This was a great fast paced story about magic that I haven't seen before and it worked out very well.  The story was a great blend of characters, magic, and magical creatures.  I really loved the concept of being able to jump into stories to go other places.  The writing style makes this a very magical book. The characters made this one flourish into a great read. The only issue I had was the dialogue which was slightly choppy in parts. Almost every aspect of this story makes it unforgettable.
