Well, hello June 7th – otherwise known as Pub Day for book two in the NINJA LIBRARIANS series by Jen Swann Downey, SWORD IN THE STACKS! And, as Kirkus Reviews says, there’s “never a dull moment in this lybrary school!”
Fans of Dorrie, her brother Marcus and best-friend Ebba will be delighted to continue the adventures in this second book in the NINJA LIBRARIAN series. After stumbling upon the secret society of time-traveling ninja librarians, Dorrie has finally joined Petrarch's Library as an apprentice! One day, she'll actually go on missions to rescue people whose words have gotten them into trouble. For now she's taking some interesting classes:
First and Last Aid: When Nobody Else is Coming
Spears, Axes, and Cats: Throwing Objects with Precision and Flair
Codes, Invisible Inks, and Smoke Signals: Keeping Secrets 101
But on a training mission to 1912 England, Dorrie finds herself dangerously close to a member of the Stronghold, the Library's biggest enemy. This is her opportunity – Dorrie can spy on the enemy, find the missing key and become a real Lybrarian! But if she makes a mistake, Dorrie could lead their enemy right to the very place she's trying to save, and everyone she cares about.
If you love fast-paced adventure, history or inventive imaginary worlds, SWORD IN THE STACKS, and the first NINJA LIBRARIANS novel, THE ACCIDENTAL KEYHAND, are for you!
