Waiting on Wednesday (#210): Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine
Book Three of The Great Library series
Publisher: Berkley/NAL
Publication Date: July 11, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

The unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone and Paper and Fire unite to save the Great Library of Alexandria from itself in this electrifying adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealousy guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny....

Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the Library’s rule.

Their time is running out. To survive, they’ll have to choose to live or die as one, to take the fight to their enemies—and to save the very soul of the Great Library....




I can't believe this series is ending! I'm excited to see how Caine wraps things up. Hopefully well!

  2. The first one in the series didn't really hold my interest, hoping this one will. So I skipped the second one. Hoping to try again once this one is released.

    My WOW

    1. That's unfortunate! I like the books, but they are a bit dense for the average reader. It's good stuff, but I definitely understand why you didn't click with this series. Thank you, Jessica!
