“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.”
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.
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!
The characters are the true standout of this novel and series. Alice is a badass and I love her snark and feisty nature. She doesn't back down, and she is independent. Although Alice is in love with Finn, she definitely doesn't need him to save her. Seriously, the girl is awesome! Finn is as amazing as ever, and I think I love him more after this installment. The love he has for Alice is obvious, and he goes to great lengths for her. Plus, he's faced with leading the Collectors' Society while Brom is recovering. Finn has a lot on his plate, but he has his priorities, and he knows what's important. I did love that we got to see his backstory and what is beneath that wall he puts up. My heart truly broke for Finn and I'm glad he finally let Alice in. Both Alice and Finn grow individually over the course of the novel, but more importantly they grow together. Their romance is hot and heavy, which makes for some very steamy moments.
The plot is rich and complex, but Ms. Lyons handles it in an extraordinary way. The writing is utterly fantastic, and when you read the end of this novel (if you're anything like me), you'll be clamoring for the next in the series. There are major changes in store for all of our characters, and I can't wait to see what happens next! This is a must read for fans of the first in the series, as it is not to be missed. If you haven't started this series yet, and are a fan of fantasy and romance, read this. You won't be disappointed!
Happy reading :)
