WIJFR: The Library At Mount Char (NS)

Ya'll.  Go out and get this book and start reading it immediately.  It's amazing.  I had absolutely no idea where it was headed or what would happen and my mind was continually blown.  It's so bat-shit crazy it's hard to even describe, other than by saying it's fantasy, but fantasy set in our world.  It's also suuuuuuuper dark and brutal (so it's a no go if violence is something you can't handle).  I'd compare the brutality to Game of Thrones, the magic world to a psycho/twisted Harry Potter type of magic operating beneath the eyes of unsuspecting "muggles" who are called Americans here.  It was just amazing and so unique and new.  Please read it and then start a spoilers thread and discuss with me!

  • @julie37619 You have never let me down with recs and have gotten me out of my genre comfort zone but I'm leery of this one... Packfan and fantasy don't usually mix. :)

  • @Hoyce Dogs do die.  Some in not so nice ways.  Not character dogs, but generic dogs, if that makes sense.  No one's furry BFF dies.

    And @Packfan I think it's worth reading even if you're not a fantasy fan, unless you're turned off by violence.  I think there's also a pretty hefty amount of swearing, but I can't remember if that's something you prefer not to read or not.

    Wait. Dogs die? Can I gloss over those parts? I can't handle animal violence.

    I don't want to spoil anything...but yes, dogs die.  It's one relatively short sequence of scenes and it would be easy to skim over, I think.  I listened to it on audio, so that wasn't really an option, but I think it would be fairly easy to skip those pages without missing much.

  • I just got it from Audible.  Once I'm finished with my current listen, I will listen to this one.

  • I started it and liked it but ran out of borrowing time and had to take it back to the library. :( Glad someone I know has read and liked it.
  • I just put it on hold at the library!
