Isaac Vainio is a Libriomancer, a member of the secret organization founded five centuries ago by Johannes Gutenberg.  Libriomancers are gifted with the ability to magically reach into books and draw forth objects. When Isaac is attacked by vampires that leaked from the pages of books into our world, he barely manages to escape. To his horror he discovers that vampires have been attacking other magic-users as well, and Gutenberg has been kidnapped. With the help of a motorcycle-riding dryad who packs a pair of oak cudgels, Isaac finds himself hunting the unknown dark power that has been manipulating humans and vampires alike. And his search will uncover dangerous secrets about Libriomancy, Gutenberg, and the history of magic. . . .

3.5 Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines
Series: Magic Ex Libris #1 This book definitely breaks the fourth wall. Smudge, Isaac’s pet fire-spider, originates in another book by Hines from which he is pulled into the “real world” using libriomancy. Overall I’d say the book was entertaining although I didn’t find the story absorbing. The...

5.0 Libriomancer
Libriomancer is a great book. Note that this is my opinion. It introduces a fabulous and (to me) new way to use magic, and it deals with (how surprising) books and people who do wonderful stuff with them. And people who do less than wonderful stuff too. Books, vampires, dryads and automatons, anyo...
