Praise

Praise for A.J. Hackwith and the Novels from Hells Library series

“Hackwith literally brings books to life with her layered prose, emotional scenes, slow burns, and powerful connections among found family members.”–Library Journal (starred review)

“This book pulls apart what a book is, what a book could be, and gets to the soul of what it means to tell a story, all while delivering queer chemistry and intricate worldbuilding.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Powerhouse fantasy…Writing in stirring prose, Hackwith imbues her high-concept, metafictional tale with color, action, and high-flying emotion.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“It’s like The Good Place meets Law & Order: Bibliophile Crime Unit. Highly recommended. This book is so much fun, and you should be reading it. Trust me. Stories about story are some of my favorite kinds. This book definitely makes the list. I am so glad I read this.”—Seanan McGuire, author of In an Absent Dream

“Clever, charming, full of intricate worldbuilding and delightful characters, The Library of the Unwritten is the first book in your new favorite series.”—Christina Henry, author of The Girl in Red

“A delightful romp through heaven, hell, and everything in between which reveals itself in layers.”—Caitlin Starling, author of The Luminous Dead

“A muse, an undead librarian, a demon, and a ghost walk into Valhalla… what follows is a delightful and poignant fantasy adventure that delivers a metric ton of found family feels, and reminds us that the hardest stories to face can be the ones we tell about ourselves.”–New York Times bestselling author Kit Rocha

“Hackwith has artfully penned a love letter to books and readers alike and filled it with lush, gorgeous prose, delightfully real characters, a nonstop, twisty, and heart-wrenching plot, and an explosive ending that gave me chills.”–K. A. Doore, author of The Perfect Assassin
