In this first book of the Librarian series, Ranperen and Tantia, two young students, must travel across their battling country to find a cure for their poisoned Head Librarian the Chief Mage. They also have to find a way to save their library from being destroyed. The war causes chaos as the thieves guild and the beggars clash inside the city. There is danger everywhere. Will Ranperen and Tantia find the cure in time? Or will they be too late? I would rate this 449-page book 4 stars out of 5 because it was pretty exciting with random battles and narrow escapes.
