General Facts About The Book!
Standalone or series?
Book 2 in The Three Tombs Bookshop Series - (Does need to be read in order). You can read my review for book 1 here.
How did I get this book?
I liked book 1 - and when I saw book 2 was coming out I bugged Colleen to send me a copy.
Why did I choose to read this book:
I enjoyed book 1 and felt that now all the scene setting was done the potential was endless. Plus - It's a magic bookshop - need I say more.
Paranormal Women's Fiction
And Now To The Review!
As we discover in book one here's a bookstore - a magical book store with fictional characters working there ..... but now other fictional characters are turning up too but now humans need help too - and not just finding a book!
With the world already established in book 1, Colleen is able to do what she does best, explore story options that you wouldn't normally consider, and they work! No spoilers, as per my general review rule, but the events especially in the second half of the book are nothing short of genius for literary fans. I love the nods to other book characters that not only appear in the story, but outside "what ifs" with a couple of my all time favorite people from pages, and long time Colleen Gleason readers will love the nods to her own other series. This book took everything that was good in book 1, and ran with it, straight for a gold medal!
This is a great Paranormal Women's Fiction series, and although the world is completely open for more books to come in the series, those that hate the cliffhangers can rest happy that everything that needs to be wrapped up is concluded in this book. That's not to say you can't see where things can go, but you won't want to throw things against the wall.
An easy 5 stars for this spectacular sequel!
