"Imagine that some people have the power to affect your thoughts and feelings through reading. They can seduce you with amazing stories, conjure up vividly imagined worlds, but also manipulate you into thinking exactly what they want you to.

When Luca Campelli dies a sudden and violent death, his son Jon inherits his second-hand bookshop, Libri di Luca, in Copenhagen. Jon has not seen his father for twenty years, since the mysterious death of his mother.

After Luca's death is followed by an arson attempt on the shop, Jon is forced to explore his family's past. Unbeknown to Jon, the bookshop has for years been hiding a remarkable secret. It is the meeting place of society of booklovers and readers, who have maintained a tradition of immense power passed down from the days of the great library of ancient Alexandria. Now someone is trying to destroy them, and John finds he must fight o save himself and his new friends.

The Library of Shadows is an engrossing literary thriller of intrigue, conspiracy and the extraordinary power of reading."

Vaikutti niin kiinnostavalta, että nappasin kirjan mukaani lauantain PC-miitistä. :)

I liked the concept (readers with special gifts and powers) and of course, the bookish setting and that the book mostly took place in Copenhagen. But I didn't like or care much about the characters which was a shame.

Thank you, Mecu, for the book, which is totally unknown to me, as is its author. Exciting! I look forward to reading it.
