Ok, second part of my belated blogging duties. I don't think enough attention has been drawn to LIBYRINTH by Pearl North, which is the awesome new YA novel that my client Pearl North has written. It's coming out in July, and trust me, you want to read it.
Here's the little blurb I wrote up about it, to entice you all!
LIBYRINTH is a story about the power of reading. Haly lives in the Libyrinth, a giant maze-like library of books that are tended by Libyrarians who work to preserve their world's small store of knowledge.
She hears the voices of the books and knows their stories without reading them, but has hidden the ability for years to avoid ridicule.
Yet, now trouble is coming in the form of the Eradicants, the illiterate enemies of the Libyrarians who trek across the desert each year to burn a predetermined number of books from the Libyrinth--to erase the "dead words". Militant and on the move, the Eradicants have conquered all but one of the world's nations. When they claim that she is their one true Redeemer, Haly must convince them of the power of the written word and save the Libyrinth before her world is consumed by all-out war.
The cover is gorgeous, and the book is incredibly good.
You can pre-order it at Amazon now!
