Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Season One: Episode 2 - Sal's First Mission...

Bookburners: Anywhere But Here (Season 1, Episode 2) - Mur Lafferty, Max Gladstone, Margaret Dunlap, Brian Francis Slattery

In this Episode 2, Sal gets a tour of the Black Archives in the Vatican and she goes on her first mission. They are called out to an apartment in Madrid when the Orb lights up which signals that it detected a magical anomaly.  The neighbors started hearing weird noises downstairs so they sent their daughters, who play over there all the time, to investigate. When the daughters don't return and the father witnesses the door breathing, he calls the police. After the daughters and the police both get held hostage by the magical being, for lack of better words, Sal & Team 3 swoop in to save the day and recover the magical artifact.


This was another fun episode in the serial! If you are into magic and fantasy it's worth reading. Each episode is fairly short so you can read through them fairly quickly when you don't have a lot of time. Also, the serial is made up of four different authors and each author writes their own episodes so you're in for a little something different each time which is pretty cool.



*I received Bookburners: The Complete Season One from NetGalley & Serial Box Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
