really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult

The writing is okay but not great. What makes this a 4-star book is the raw creativity in the world that the authors built. Stone ships that fly? An endless waterfall pouring off the Edge? Librarians who've been driven into underground sewers... where they have libraries of floating bookshelves? Seriously, how could I resist a story about *librarian-knights* who go off on a quest, not to slay dragons, but to gain knowledge (and write a "treatise" to share it with everyone else)? Also, the drawings are delightful! I'm inspired to seek out some of the earlier books set in this world as well (but I suspect they may focus more on sky pirates than librarian knights - that's ok, pirates are cool too :) ).
