The Book That Wouldnt Burn Summary

The Book That Wouldnt Burn (The Library Trilogy, Book 1) by Mark Lawrence

All books, no matter their binding, will fall to dust. The stories they carry may last longer. They might outlive the paper, the library, even the language in which they were first written.

The greatest story can reach the stars . . .

This is the start of an incredible new journey from the internationally bestselling author of Prince of Thorns, in which, though the pen may be mightier than the sword, blood will be spilled and cities burned

Evar has lived his whole life trapped within a vast library, older than empires and larger than cities.

Livira has spent hers in a tiny settlement out on the Dust where nightmares stalk and no one goes.

The world has never noticed them.

Thats about to change.

As their stories spiral around each other, across worlds and time, each will unlock vast secrets about the world and themselves. This is a tale of truth and lies and hearts, and the blurring of one into another.

Robin Hobb, the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE ASSASSINS APPRENTICE

Mark Lawrence gets better with every book. It has a drive to it, a pulse, a gearshift that kicks higher and higher.
Fantasy Book Review

This tale of knowledge and its cost flies by thanks to the gripping mystery and beautiful worldbuildingreaders will be desperate for more.
Publishers Weekly

Lawrence works with many threads here, but none feels misused or insufficiently explored. Rather, the author unspools them masterfully, leaving behind a tightly woven tapestry that readers will ache to see finished even if they can predict one or two of the tales myriad twists and turns. Gripping, earnest, and impeccably plotted.
Kirkus
