The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith brings characters out of their books and into the “flesh”. Of course, characters are not supposed to wake up from their stories. This only happens in the Unwritten Wing of Hell’s library. The books aren’t attached to Hell, they’re not even influenced by Hell, that’s just where the library is located. The unwritten stories are fiercely guarded by Claire, Hell’s Librarian.
Book characters come to life! It’s what readers have always wanted!
Claire’s job is to protect the stories that can still be written, at all costs. The unwritten stories are sometimes added to the library before their author’s are even old enough to write. Claire is stationed in Hell so you’d think she’d be a dark and horrible character but she’s actually a very caring and loyal person. Nothing and no one is as you’d expect them to be simply because of where they’re spending their after-life.
Let me tell you, there are quite a few characters I’d love to call into reality. 😉
A.J. Hackwith takes readers through a fight between mortal souls, demons, angels, muses, and book characters. It’s surprising how you come to feel for various characters despite which realm they represent. This book is just so imaginative. I was surprised to learn that I’d willingly visit Hell’s Library. It’s just the kind of place a book worm would want to spend their after-life. No torture, no chains, just books. It kinda sounds like heaven, just in different realm.
