Lizzie led a normal life...until the Book arrived.
Author Kate Baray begins her new paranormal romance series with Lost Library, a tale of werewolves, magic, adventure and romance.
John Braxton arrives unannounced on Lizzie’s doorstep. Little does she know that when she invites him for a drink on the porch, Lizzie opens the door to a secret world of Lycan, magic, spelled books, and a power hungry mastermind. Caught up in one man’s search for power, Lizzie soon begins to uncover surprising secrets about her own past and powers—but not before stumbling upon a library like no other. And romance with a serious but sexy Lycan? It might just happen…
Take a romp through the life of the quirky and well-meaning Lizzie as she discovers exactly what it means to live with magic.
I finished reading this book in December and am going from my memory about what happened.
I thought this book was decent. The story was interesting. This girl has a new magical ability to read certain kinds of texts but she can’t figure out how to make this ability work. Somehow the text she needs to read is very important to more than one “wolf clan” (okay, lycan clan) in this story. Thus, a rival wolf clan decides they need this book and also the gal who can read it.
The chase is on as John Braxton’s clan who has claimed Lizzie as their own, goes after her when she turns up missing. The whole “wolf transformation” is not too obnoxious and only happens occasionally.
I do remember the ending being mega cool and a good jumping off point for the next book in the series. I really liked this story and will definitely read book two.
I paid for this book with my own money
