Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Magic ex Libris series:
 
"An engaging writer who is also greatly entertaining, and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys superior worldbuilding." —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling writer
 
"I picked up the book meaning to read a few pages. My first thought was, 'This is a cool concept.' The second thing I thought was, 'This is really, really clever.' The third thing I thought was, 'I should have gone to sleep three hours ago.'" —Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times bestselling writer
 
"This may be Jim Hines' best work. Libriomancer is smart, silly, and deadly serious, all at the same time. It's a book about loving books." —Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling writer
 
“Hines created a system where that magic becomes real, usable, and very definitely not always safe. This is a book for everyone who has ever wanted to pull Excalibur from the page.” —Tanya Huff, bestselling author
 
“A rich backstory and mythology that weaves history and magic and science fiction across centuries, between cultures, and around the globe.” —Wired
 
"Hines supplies everything a reader needs—werewolves, ghosts, robot insects, a fire spider that eats candy, and homages to classic SF—for a very good time." —Publishers Weekly
 
"Bibliophiles and fantasy enthusiasts will enjoy the author's intelligent approach to both magic and literature." —Library Journal
 
"Hines writes joyously.... Codex Born is what would happen if a group of fantasy fans were to hole up in a room trying to develop a system of magic, saying, 'But what if THIS happened?'" —RT Reviews
 
"Libriomancer is any book-geek's dream come true. It is so much fun and an ode to books." —Book Smugglers
 
“Isaac’s story feels extremely personal and intimate, even throughout the world-changing events around him.” —SF Signal
 
"Hines has just scratched the surface of what he can do. And I can't wait to see what comes next." ­­—Tor.com
 
“Equal parts quirky humor and serious emotional dissection.... Hines is one hell of an author.” —Bookworm Blues
 
Continues to break tropes and proves that fantasy can be so much more.... Right at the top of my list of favorites along with JK Rowling’s Harry Potter, Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle, Garth Nix’s Abhorsen, and Kim Harrison’s Hollows.” —Bibliophilic Witch
 
Wonderful characterizations. From a fire spider to Gutenberg himself, [Hines] makes all his characters come alive on the page.” —Errand Dreams

About the Author

Jim C. Hines has been a paid juggler, earned a black belt in two different martial arts, performed yo-yo tricks at the top of the Eiffel Tower, and lived with a brain-damaged squirrel. (Only three of those are true.) One of his earliest stories earned first place in the Writers of the Future contest. He’s published more than forty short stories as well as numerous fantasy novels, including the humorous Jig the Dragonslayer trilogy, the Princess series, which re-imagines traditional fairy-tale princesses as butt-kicking action heroines, and the Magic Ex Libris series, about a centuries-old secret society dedicated to the use and control of book magic. In 2012, he won the Hugo for Best Fan Writer. Jim lives in Michigan with his wife, two children, and an unstable number of pets. He can be found online at www.jimchines.com.
