And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.

Assassin of Truths is the third and final book in the young adult fantasy Library Jumpers series by Brenda Drake. Each book is definitely a continuation and would be best to start the story at the beginning with the first book of the series. It’s definitely a high intensity, action packed ride and well worth the three book read though.

The story revolves around Gia Kearns who when out visiting a library with her friends spotted a cute boy but while Gia was watching he simply disappeared. When she

Assassin of Truth was fast paced, action packed, and a fabulous conclusion to the Library Jumpers trilogy! And in this final review, I wanted to talk about the characters that affected me the most, which were Bastien, Gia and even Arik. But before I start, I have to recommend that you read this final book close to the previous books. There's a ton of people, locations, facts and clues that were sprinkled throughout the first two books and visited again in Assassin of Truth. So i

Assassin of Truths was my favourite book in this series and the ending is so perfect. I would recommend you start with book one. This series is for the magic-loving wizard groupies. I love libraries. Just the smell of old books drives me crazy, but what if there was more! Books that take you on adventures literally. Gia is our heroine and she is always up for a good fight. Quests, mythological creatures, romance and a prophecy are just a few things this series offers.

This is the third and final novel in this magical, fast paced, action packed adventure and I definitely recommend reading the other books before starting this one. Just imagine that, if you find the right books and know the correct words, you could use it to take you from one library to another somewhere else in the world . . . . These books - and the libraries they are in - are protected by a group of magical knights known as Sentinels. Obviously, there are enemies out to misuse the books and l ...more

'Assassin of Truths' is the exhilarating final installment in an absolutely wonderful young adult fantasy series that will leave readers with closure, but still wanting more. After reading the first two books and knowing that this was the last one, I had lots of hopes and certain expectations for it. I'm so incredibly happy that this novel lived up to and even surpassed my expectancies. There are so many series that start out really strong only to tank when it comes to the following installments ...more

I'm sure some people will love this, but it's just not for me. It seems almost exactly the same as TMI, a series I personally love, but not in a reminiscent way, in a way that the story and characters are the same except not as good as TMI.

Speaking of the story, I had no idea what the plot was doing. It seemed we were trying to do one thing, and then suddenly we'd be off doing this whole other thing and I'd have to think, "Wait, what about this other plot line that is seemingly more i

I was a little disappointed with this book, if I’m honest. When I read the first book, Thief of Lies, I was surprised by how much I loved the story. But the second book wasn’t quite as good, and this one didn’t reach those expectations, either. It was a good read, and the storyline, the world, is really interesting, but the characters annoyed me in this book, and the plot was a bit hard to get into at first.

I was really annoyed by Gia in this book.

Assassin of Truths was a satisfying conclusion to the Library Jumpers Trilogy. Full of action of action and excitement right from the word go, book 3 picks up a month or after the end of book 2. Gia and her friends are still reeling in the aftermath of the events of book 2, the grief at those they lost and for Gia especially the part she played in it all. However there are chiavi to find, a tetras to release and conquer and two worlds to save so Gia and her friends are determined to get on with ...more

This book was everything. It broke my heart with some of the losses that we experienced, but in the end it was everything I was hoping it would be and the perfect ending to a crazy adventure.

I was WAY shipping Gia and Bastien in this book and I loved getting to watch them grow together. Throw in all the near death experiences and this book really has you on edge. You never know who is going to pop up, or who turns out to be a spy.

Gia makes some hard choices in this book and it hard to watch her
This book wasn't as interesting as the previous two and because of that I every time I put it down I didn't feel this great desire to pick it up again.

About the romance: (view spoiler)

Tons of action and adventure in the conclusion to Brenda Drake’s NYT bestselling Library Jumpers series. Danger at every turn for the main characters as Gia gets the last keys, and goes on a journey to take down the Tetrad and Conemar for the final time.

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

This is the last book in the Library Jumpers Trilogy.

I finished another series/trilogy. This is my mission this year, finishing series or at least catching up on series that are still not finished. So far I'm doing pretty good. Yay me!

Summary (cause it's not that spoilery): The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.

I did not want this series to end. There's so much potential to explore in the world further, so many cool things I really wished we could take the time to poke at more! I'd love to see another, related series in this world, maybe her Nana's backstory? That'd be AMAZING! ...more

Received in exchange for a honest review.

this series overall is great. It’s entertaining, well written and entrancing. Assassin of truths is all these things as well. You will find characters that steal your heart like Bastien, Demos, and Arik (yes Arik). Characters you love to boo like Comenar. And characters you get on the fence with like The Red...You see growth in characters but also struggles that show they are human and not perfect.. Bastien my only problem with him was he was too perfect

This book jumps between worlds and cities as you would guess from the title of the series. Each city that Gia visits on her quest to defeat the Tetrad and Conemar are described wonderfully, with each one being given it’s own characteristics to match a place from the human world.

"Assassin of Truths" was a great finale to the Library Jumpers series. You do need the context from the first two books to really appreciate this story- and it moves so fast that you would get lost without it. I highly recommend reading from book one through the final together/close in time. All the storylines are closed in this final book, bringing good closure to everything that has happened in the first two.

I stuck to the Library Jumper series because I'd become invested in the characters and their relationships. Assassin of Truths felt like the start of a fitting conclusion though I'll never find out. Despite my initial investment I found myself not caring very much as I read.

I only made it 17% into the book before deciding to stop. The more I read the more I realized I didn't want to read any more. I no longer cared for the story or the characters. I couldn't muster up any positive feelings for t

A thrilling conclusion to the Library Jumpers series! There is just enough left untied at the end where you can add a small addition or idea if you want (some people may call this fan-fiction). I had a magnificent time reading this series and, the best way I can describe it relative to another series is, a cross between the Divergent series and the Harry Potter series. (Harry Potter may be a stretch..) There are just so many layers that it is hard to find something to compare it to. Undoubtedly, ...more

Overall, I enjoyed myself while reading this book. The characters were interesting and I especially loved the plot. The premise of the book is super unique. I definitely enjoyed seeing how the author created the story with such interesting ideas. However, I wasn’t super excited to continue reading throughout most of the book. Also, certain characters were a little awkward and didn’t act like their characters at times. All in all, I’m glad that I read this book and I did like it.

Finally!!! It's here! The final book in the Library Jumpers series by Brenda Drake. I have been waiting for this. I couldn't wait to get back to both of Gia's worlds.

Not only do you get to explore such beautiful libraries, but you get to learn some history from inside each one as she jumps between them searching for clues to what her grandfather left ...more

Of course it is just her luck that she is starting to be distracted with a love interest. Will Gia be able to balance her love life and her quest to save the libraries?

A nice conclusion to the trilogy. I probably should have re-read the other books first to help remember which characters were which. There is enough recap of prior events that I wasn't completely lost, but just a little uncertain sometimes who was who. Everything leads up to the final battle between Conemar and Gianna, and overall I liked how her character grew. The pace is pretty quick and most of the chapters end on a cliffhanger to keep the pages turning. I really like both Bastien and Arik, ...more
