Let's Go To The Library of the Dead!

I had the extreme pleasure of picking up The Library of the Dead by T.L. Huchu, and I am now a Edinburgh Mysteries devotee!

If you've never heard of this fantasy series, settle in for an action-packed, hysterical, but still heartwarming romp. The novel focuses on Ropa, a young, feisty "ghosttalker" who uses her ability to communicate with the dead to provide for her grandmother and younger sister.

Ropa is such a distinct character that I couldn't help fall in love with her. Her less-than-optimal childhood and socioeconomic issues make her firmly rooted in reality, and her wry humor and relentless drive gives the story incredible heart.

I hadn't heard much about the Edinburgh Mysteries series before picking it up at Erin's insistence (note for readers: always trust a bookstore owner. They know what they're talking about), but I will be mentioning it far and wide from now on. The series is such a fun break from other fantasy series, but doesn't sacrifice the writing, characters, or plot along the wide.

What are you waiting for? Come to the store and talk to me about The Library of the Dead!
