Within the walls of a centuries-old building lies the magical Library of Illumination where books literally come to life. What makes this library even more unusual are the two teenagers chosen to oversee its operation. Johanna Charette and Jackson Roth must use their wits to deal with the sometimes humorous, sometimes dangerous situations that arise when characters and scenes from enchanted books become real. As the teens learn about the library, themselves, and each other their fates become intertwined. And when they stumble upon a scheme by someone in a distant realm to take control of all the knowledge in the universe, Johanna and Jackson are forced to put their lives on the line to battle an ancient foe.
Chronicles: The Library of Illumination contains few short stories that revolves around a very special kind of library. I loved this idea, that some of the books can come to life and the characters from them can visit us. I liked especially the appearance of Dr. John Watson. How I wished it could happen to me! 😉
Although the characters are teenagers, they don’t feel like one. Maybe Jackson sometimes but Johanna is a very mature for a girl her age.
Each story was exciting and different, I think I liked “Doubloons” and “Casanova” the most.
It was a good read and I’m looking forward to the next!
