With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian Chronicles.”
Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians.
While researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…
What a phenomenal idea for a series. A Librarian who is tasked with traveling through time to make sure the details of history are recorded correctly. Time travel, the perfect setting, lush descriptions plus books. Having never read the first in the series, I was nervous to jump right in with book two, but Christy does a wonderful job at making The Archivist stand on its own merit. Readers will be able to follow the story line without trouble.
Savannah is a college student whose life revolved around shelving, caring for and traveling through books. Her family relationships are stormy and she doesn’t seem to fit in with the current circumstances she lives in as an old soul. She finds herself drawn to Scotland to solve a mystery which ultimately leads to one wild adventure. There is much to love about The Archivist. I found myself wishing I too could travel through time and experience the sights right along with Mollie of Aberdeenshire. The writing was a bit choppy at times, but overall easy to follow with a fast moving pace. I’m going to have to go back and read book one now!
I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and have two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.
