For millennia, the Librarians have secretly protected the world by keeping watch over dangerous magical relics. Cataloging and safeguarding everything from Excalibur to Pandora’s Box, they stand between humanity and those who would use the relics for evil.

Stories can be powerful. In 1719, Elizabeth Goose of Boston Massachusetts published a collection of rhyming spells as a children's book, creating a spellbook of terrifying power. The Librarian of that age managed to dispose of all copies of the book except one, which remained in the possession of Elizabeth Goose and her family, temporarily averting any potential disaster.

However, strange things are happening, A window washer in San Diego who was blown off his elevated perch by a freak gust of wind, but miraculously survived by landing on a canopy over the building entrance. A woman in rural Pennsylvania who was attacked by mutant rodents without any eyes. And, a college professor in England who somehow found herself trapped inside a prize pumpkin at a local farmer’s market. Baird and her team of Librarians suspect that the magic of Mother Goose is again loose in the world, and with Fynn Carson AWOL once again, it is up to Cassandra, Ezekiel, and Stone to track down the missing spellbook before the true power of the rhymes can be unleashed.

My Review

I am so excited to be a part of this tour because I am a HUGE fan on the TV series on TNT. If you haven't seen it, you should.  I just knew I would love this book as much as I do the show. All book nerds need to check this out!

So, the run down on this Librarian adventure is the one and only copy of Mother Goose's rhymes that are actually spells, was divided into three books. This is so not one person can control the power it holds within.  However, when weird events happen in different parts of the world, the Librarians discover rhymes are coming to life, and needs to be stopped before the apocalypse comes to be...like the BIG BANG.

As Cassandra, Jake and Ezekiel each go in different directions to solve the clues to find each book while Colonel Baird and Jenkins stay behind at the annex to deal with the chaos. 

So in this story, there are four adventures going on at the same time....FOUR! Until the very end where they all come together to defeat the evil Mother Goose.  That's a lot of action...and many clues to unravel. However, it was written in such brilliant form your eyes can't seem to read fast enough!  The characters' personalities exploded from the pages capturing the TV version spot on.

It is so fun to read a story about nursey rhymes that everyone has grown up with at some point in their life, give it a little twist and creative imagination and mold it into something new. You can never go wrong with throwing a little bit of fantasy and supernatural into the mixture, especially with characters that each have their own quirky personalities.

A fun and fast read that brings your childhood back with a little extra spunk!
