Summary Smoke and Iron

He world catching fire and words printed on paper the spark that lights rebellion it falls to smugglers thieves and scholars to save a library thousands of years in the makingif they can stay alive long enough to outwit their enemi. I have been uite impatiently waiting for Smoke and Iron since finishing Ash and uill over a year ago And the wait was well worth itI m going to keep this short and sweet to avoid spoilers for any books in this series This particular installment was highly entertaining with a fast paced plot that moved along at a nice clip from start to finish It alternated between each character s perspective every few chapters which not only helped to pull the story tight from all angles but also added depth and complexity to characters that were previously not as fleshed out And the settings and world building that were already impressive continued to expand and develop hereWhile I have a keen fondness for Ink and Bone the first book in The Great Library series for introducing me to this incredibly interesting and magical world I think this is the best book of the bunch to date I can t wait to see what Caine does in the last book to round out this series

Smoke and Iron

For the US hardback see ISBN13 9780451489210To save the Great Library the unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone Paper and Fire and Ash and uill put themselves in danger in the next thrilling adventure in the New York Times bes. 35 starsEither I m getting critical or this series is lowering in uality just slightlyThis book is the fourth installment in the Great Library series which is a fantasy series I think is EXTREMELY underrated and has been so much fun to follow It s got historical yet dystopian vibes lots of diversity and a cast of characters you get attached to easilyBut with each new installment I read I get a little less engrossed in the series It might be because it s uite long there are five books total and each book has a pretty slow moving plot But there s just something less engaging about each book and I can t uite pinpoint it Is a fire the fault of a man who drops a match or the one who spilled the oil all over the floor knew it and left it there This series is essentially about a world where the Great Library of Alexandria survived and it controls and censors what books the citizens of the world can or cannot read It s become oppressive and so this band of six kids are trying to change itThis book is a story of rebellion and giving the power of choice to every individual It s about opening yourself up to knowledge fighting for what you think is right and choosing what to believe At its core it s a story of overcoming oppressive governments and I think that s something extremely relevant to today s eventsDespite my inability to get fully engaged in the story and the issues I had with the development of characters among other things I still really enjoyed this book There s something about this series that makes you care about what happens to the characters and get excited to know what happens next The writing isn t anything special but it s easy to read and some dry humor finds its way in tooUnlike the previous books Smoke and Iron follows four different characters and it s a little disconcerting It makes sense why the author chose to write four different POVs the characters were almost all split up but it was just a little much And then at the end there are three chapters for three new characters and it s just WHY It s way too much I do like multiple POVs because I like seeing into different characters heads but there s a line between just enough and too much and this book crosses itWith four POVs you expect to have a lot of character development Sadly there is minimal development JESS Jess chapters were REALLY fun to read because he was impersonating his twin brother Brendan for the first half or so who reminds me a lot of Kaz Brekker but smiles and who I ADORE I don t think Jess changes very much at all except he does get a little braver I guess I m reaching here KHALILA I ADORE Khalila I absolutely love her She s one of my favorite parts of this book and one of my favorite characters She s such a strong female character her most powerful tool is her voice but she s also sweet caring passionate and also a really great fighter And I think it s extremely important to see this hijabi Muslim woman in a place of leadership WOLFE Okay Wolfe and Santi are my favorite gay dads to ever exist and I just adore their relationship I m 99% sure that Wolfe has PTSD was tortured physically and mentally before the series takes place and seeing him fighting that seeing Santi try to help him was really inspiring especially as a mentally ill person myself Didn t really see the need to include his POV though MORGAN Morgan was just NOT a good character in this book Her only development is from do I love him to maybe I don t love him to I do love him and it s so hilariously RIDICULOUS that this strong fierce woman has been reduced to an arc like that And while she had of a personality in this book than previously her I CAN T BELIEVE YOU RE NOT GONNA HELP ME attitude got on my nerves uicklyI think another issue that kept me from being as engaged with this book was that it was slow It took me 6 days to read when it should ve taken me about half that time The plot was really slow to get started though I ll give it credit there were plenty of events that kept me interested Still I struggled to get into it and that s one of the main things that affected my reading experienceAlso the ending was rushed There was no time to wrap up one HUGE event that happened in the second to last chapter And while I m excited to see what happens in the next book it s hard to imagine what can possibly keep me interested after all the huge events that happened in Smoke and Iron we will bring our light back to a world we left in darkness rep hijabi Muslim Saudi Arabian female MC gay male MC

    Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest reviewThis might be the best yet in the series and I think it was definitely my favorite of the series so far We come off of the cliffhanger of the next book with everyone in limbo and the author uses her mighty pen to move and shift all of our players like pieces on a chess board forcing them towards the huge clash that is destined to happen soonWe get t
