Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
A heart-pounding tale of an apprentice librarian in a world where books have magical powers and can be dangerous if not properly contained. Our protagonist, Elizabeth Scrivner, is a strong, fierce heroine who may have absorbed a little magic of her own. She must battle an evil sorcerer set on releasing a dangerous Grimoire (magical book) into the world. I was engrossed in the magic and action as well as the tender, albeit quirky, love story found within these pages!
