Review

Rating: 7

Following some type of catastrophe that resulted in the wreck of civilization, this book follows follows two extraordinary teens in their travles while two factions, the Libyrarians, who keep the books of the Libyrinth, and the Eridicants or Singers, who seek to destroy all written words, vie to impose their vision on the world. The magical and superscience aspects of this book owe as much to William Morris’s The Well at the World’s End as it does to The Tripods trilogy by John Christopher (and, to a lesser extent, his Sword of the Spirits series).
