Publisher's Summary

A librarian. A spell book. And a terrorist organization set on enslaving the world.

Librarian Jayne Thorne enjoys her quiet life of tea and books. That is, until she finds a spell book in the Vanderbilt archives that accidentally gives her access to a magical dimension.

Now she's hunted by a magic-wielding terrorist group called the Kingdom, and the only way for her to survive is to team up with a secret branch of the CIA. Her first mission: Go undercover at Trinity College Library in Dublin to discover the identity of a Kingdom member and determine if the Book of Leinster is actually a magical necromantic grimoire.

With the help of a handsome Irish kickboxer, Jayne uncovers the truth of her unexpected spell book: The Irish manuscript is one of five grimoires that can raise five dead, master magicians, and secure their totems of power. With these totems comes the power to control the world.

But the spell book isn't the only thing with secrets in Jayne's new life. Danger lurks in every corner and Jayne must rise to meet her fated role...or perish alongside the rest of the world.

Contains mature themes.

Cool to be a Book Nerd!

This has to be my new favorite character! Jayne, the smart-alecky are CIA librarian, who just happens to be magic, makes it cool to be a nerd, especially a book nerd! This book has it all – – Adventure, romance, comedy, literary and historical references, fantasy, and my all-time favorite – a hunky guy that turns into a wolf! The narrator does an absolutely fabulous job with different voices as well as a variety of accents. I felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to an audiobook. I can’t wait for Book 2 !

Excellent narration, and a fun adventure!

This was gripping from the start! Erin Moon does a fabulous job with the voices, making each one unique and distinct. They felt like real characters! And she really nailed Jayne's quirky, sassy, and sometimes awkward humor. I felt like I could laugh along with Jayne during some of her dialogue and inner monologue. The action was non-stop, the romance was sizzling (and that Irish accent! Swoon!), and the entire journey was just a fun ride! Highly recommend.
