Smoke and Iron

Book 4, The Great Library

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


To save the Great Library, the unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone, Paper and Fire, and Ash and Quill put themselves in danger in the next thrilling adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

The opening moves of a deadly game have begun. Jess Brightwell has put himself in direct peril, with only his wits and skill to aid him in a game of cat and mouse with the Archivist Magister of the Great Library. With the world catching fire, and words printed on paper the spark that lights rebellion, it falls to smugglers, thieves, and scholars to save a library thousands of years in the making...if they can stay alive long enough to outwit their enemies.

Hoping for more...

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Scholastic Siren - Sara:
**This review may contain minor spoilers from previous books.

SMOKE AND IRON starts right where we left off with ASH AND QUILL and the rest of the Great Library series.

Because the group is scattered, we get different POV chapters in this book, but the author pulls it off beautifully. While I am not always a fan of this storytelling method, it seems necessary for all the moving pieces here, and was wonderfully done.

The plotting is exquisite, and gets better with each new entry to the series. The characters have grown and changed as the series progresses, and they feel like real people. Each book is like a novel-length chapter to the overall arc. You want to start at the beginning [and we suggest you do!], but you will never want them to end.

I think this idea started as a five-book series, but I’m hoping for many more.
