The rot extends deeper, into every branch and root, for the Library now seeks not to enlighten, but to enslave. We are only the most visible casualties of a silent war, and as they lock collars on our necks and tell us it is for our protection, we know that worse will come.
I’m almost 50 pages into this book and I’m in love already. It’s part dystopian-part steampunk-part alternate history and full of fun. I will say that I’m a little confused as to what’s going on but that’s because the world-building is still being explained as it’s so early in the book. But I am loving the premise! As an ancient history nerd, I’ve often wondered what life would be like if the Great Library had never burnt down. Thank God for Caine wondering the same damn thing and bringing it to life!

“I don’t believe I’d have the right to question your sanity, given our bizarre line of work,” she contended. “I’ve just never known them to pursue such lengths before in support of our cause.”
So this book is interesting/confusing/unique. I am seriously confused by what’s going on, as there’s been a bit of an info dump but not enough to explain anything. Like I think there’s demons, aliens, Illuminati, and like mythical creatures all being mentioned and introduced. Seriously. All that’s missing now are some wizards and a princess! But I’m finding myself so intrigued that even though I’m confused about 80% of the time, this story is just pulling me in. Also, the writing is extremely dense and reads like literary fiction. It still surprises me while I’m reading. I mean, come on, teenagers do not think or talk this way! Has anyone else read this book so far? Does it all come together at some point? It’s like a train wreck that I can’t look away, I have got to finish it!
