Isaac Vainio is a rare magic practitioner as a Libriomancer who makes real objects from things in books manifest in reality.  However, needing to earn a living, he turns in magic for bar codes as he accepts employment at the Copper River Library.  Meyerii vampires materialized from a book attack him, Isaac is fortunate to survive. 

 

He soon learns the vampiress have assaulted other magic users as they target the Die Zwelf Portenaere “Porters” in retaliation for attacks on their kind.  The six century old Libriomancer founding father of the Porters Johannes Gutenberg vanishes.  Isaac, dryad Lena Greenwood and Smudge the fire-spider begin a mission to end the war and free Gutenberg, but are unaware of a diabolical and hostile third party.

 

With a nod to the movie Inkheart, Libriomancer is an exciting urban fantasy starring a wonderful hero, a fabulous kick butt sidekick and a burning lunatic “pet” who left Jig the Goblin’s shoulder for a new fiery gig.  Fast-paced and filled humor, readers will enjoy the escapades of Isaac and his two allies as they leap off the pages of Jim C. Hines terrific thriller.
