Imprinted (Magic ex Libris) Paperback – January 8, 2018
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Publishing is in a new world now with the rise of self-publishing by traditionally-published authors when said traditional publishers suddenly say "No, thanks. We don't want to publish any more works in that series."
A number of my favorite traditionally-published authors have now found themselves in this same situation.
Some are going ahead with continuing the series (or at least short stories, novelettes, novellas, etc. set in the same world) through self-publishing.
Some have turned to new works that the traditional publishers do agree to publish.
Imprinted not only continues Magic Ex Libris but contributes to the future growth of the series, as well.
That said, Imprinted is also a good introduction for readers who have not read any of the Magic Ex Libris novels. After reading Imprinted, I'm willing to bet that a number of these new readers will be clamoring to read the first four books!
Thanks again, Mr. Hines, and more Magic Ex Libris stories, please?!
I’m such a fangirl when it comes to the Magic Ex Libris tales that I can’t help wishing for a longer story just because. That said, this was the right length for what it was. I just can’t wait for more. It’s fantastic to see more of young Janeta and her abilities as a prodigy with book magic. Isaac, the main character of the series in general, is here, but it’s definitely Janeta’s tale to be told. Isaac is there to help, but no one really knows the extent of Janeta’s abilities or how they’ll end up working on the whole. We also get to see more players in the game, opening up the possibility of more tales to come. I hope…
It seems more like a slightly stretched short story than a novel. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it out in print, but I was disappointed in the depth of the story. And it's very short.
