I would rate this novel 4.5 stars. The world of this novel, one with magical libraries full of books that are alive, was my favorite part. It's a world any book lover is sure to be enchanted by. In terms of characters, Elisabeth is a strong, brave, determined female character who displays a lot of growth throughout the novel. Silas, a demon, manages to be both sinister and charming. Nathaniel, the sorcerer love interest of Elisabeth, was the only real dud of the novel. I found him to be quiet bland. This is a standalone fantasy, a true unicorn of the YA fantasy genre. This had better pacing than most standalone fantasies I've read. It never felt rushed but it didn't drag on, either. Compared to Rogerson's debut, An Enchantment of Ravens, this book is a major step forward/huge improvement. So, if you didn't like her first novel, I still urge you to give this one a try.
