In a world where the Alexandria Library controls the world's books and knowledge and acts as a Medieval Roman Catholic Church, this novel follows Jess as he competes for a spot at the library while trying to hide his family's book smuggling business.

This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. I would give it 6 stars if I could. The characters are a multicultural group of diverse personalities and motives, well-developed and flawed. The world is an intriguing time and place--both Victorian and medieval with steam-power and alchemy. Fascinating politics and power plays completely absorb the reader.

I finished this book days ago and have yet to stop thinking about it, and currently cannot start another book because of it. I am eagerly anticipating the next installment.
