Books Are Magic

Libriomancer book coverReaders have long found themselves pulled into books, but what if you could pull things out of them?  That’s the idea behind Libriomancer, a book you should definitely not judge by its unfortunate cover.  Isaac Vainio has the ability to literally reach into a book and draw out an object described in its pages.  This gift comes in especially handy when three vampires attack him in the library.  With the aid of his fire-spider Smudge, Isaac cleverly defeats them and then discovers his battles are far from over.  Author Jim C. Hines, who just won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writing, successfully translates his geekery and tongue-in-cheek humor into a fantastically fun read, sure to appeal to modern booklovers with overactive imaginations and a taste for high adventure.

    This sounds a little bit like Inkheart, where he can read things out of books. Still, I liked Inkheart so maybe I’ll give it a try.
