“Someone should write a book about how Alice Liddell from Wonderland falls in love with Huckleberry Finn. I might rather want to read that book.”
Heather Lyons has done it again in a unique and beautifully written story surrounding our beloved literary characters. The Hidden Library is the second book in the series The Collector's Society and must be read after reading the first book. This book picks up after the events at the end of the first book, with Finn running The Society. He and Alice are working to get answers out of their prisoners who had been tormenting The Society in the previous book.
Alice and Finn are on the hunt for the elusive big bad who has been destroying timelines and ending countless lives, but the further they get, the more questions they have. Finn and Alice also face old demons, enemies and threats along the way, hindering their search greatly.
This book began a little bit slow for me, but that's my fault because I waited so long to read this, I forgot some of the details. But it picked up very quickly before turning into an action packed novel with lots of plot twists and surprises. I love when the characters would venture into different timelines; I was enraptured by Finn's hometown and riveted by the trip back into Wonderland. The author has such a vivid imagination, and reading this book was like stepping into real and new worlds.
I have to say I was kept guessing while reading this book, I never knew where it was going to go next. The plot is so beyond intricate with character dynamics, settings, and more, it's a story that keeps you on your toes. I cannot wait to see what comes with the next book as this one was even better than the first.
My one teeny tiny little bit that wasn't perfect: my heart bleeds for the White King. I still feel his connection for Alice is incredibly strong. I'm hoping he gets a love interest soon because I just feel so damn for the bad guy that I am ready to be on his team (or keep him for myself. I may do that instead). Otherwise, I loved this book!
“True love does not have limits or restrictions. True love allows a person to love deeply and unconditionally. True love does not ask you to let go of life. True love encourages you to live.”
The one thing that I absolutely loved about this book is that we got to know more about Finn, and we got his POV which was awesome!
"The past makes us who we are. It lets us mold the future. I would not be the same man sitting before you, had I not been who I was in my youth."
I was intrigued by him from the beginning. I mean, come on, it's Huckleberry Finn for goodness sakes!!! But grown up obviously.
The romance between Alice and Finn is on point! I mean, it's everything that I could dream of and more.
The distances that he went for her, literally, amazed me. The love, compassion, understanding, were beyond beautiful!!!
The relationship/friendship that he developed with the White King was something else.
"You must understand that my heart will always desire the Queen of Hearts. Always."
I mean, they both loved her unconditionally, but only one could be with her. Obviously, the White King was man enough to step aside because he knew that the shared path that they had ended. She went one way, while he went another. And no, it wasn't like Finn was a second choice, because that was not the case.
Of course there's also the whole society business that they have going on. Like always, the action in this book is awesome!
I can't wait to get my hands on the Forgotten Mountain!!!
"True love does not have limits or restrictions. True love allows a person to love deeply and unconditionally..."
This is definitely no "filler" between the 1st & 3rd books.
The one thing that's *interesting* is that Finn is full of moral outrage for the racial injustice in his time line, but it seems that everyone in The Collectors Society is white...which may have more to say about *our* society that the book-people haven't picked up on. Namely that *our* beloved characters are all white American or English folks.
Wow, what an ending! Good thing the whole series is out so I can start on book 3 right away!
The crazy shocks page after page in this book were fantastic. I can honestly say that there was a huge chunk that I didn’t see coming, and the stuff that I did still, took me for a loop.
This novel dives deep into Finn and his past, as well as the dynamics of his past and how they made who he is. It was enlightening and frankly, heart breaking. So many doors were opened about him that you really see a new side. It was interesting to take part in.
Then our villains returned and came back with a vengeance. I wont say ANYTHING about the last 20% of the book, other than the fact that OH MY GOODNESS it was riveting. I loved the characters that we got to see again, and the new developments were great. I want more and I want it now!
