Janor | 540 comments Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.

Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.

Being a Keeper isn't just dangerous—it's a constant reminder of those Mac has lost, Da's death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself may crumble and fall.

In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hard-won redemption.

I really liked the book! It was exciting and I loved learning about this new world. Despite the drawbacks I wished I would have the same "powers" as a keeper.

Lisa | 1990 comments Also... i know Mac's parents lost their son and i can't imagine how that must be but... shouldn't they see a therapist or something because how this moving and always starting something new and not really trying to overcome the grief and such... i just feel so bad for Mac.

HeatherH (bkwrm85) | 2163 comments 5 chapters in so far and enjoying it. I've avoided reading the synopsis or any reviews, having decided to read it solely based on the author and the cover lol, so it took me a bit before I wasn't completely lost. I really like Mackenzie's character already. Also, I'm enjoying how Schwab is slowly giving us glimpses into Mac's past as a way of introducing and explaining the world we are diving into.
