Love this series and I desperately want a fire spider.

From Indigo.ca:
Five hundred years ago, Johannes Gutenberg discovered the art of libriomancy, allowing him to reach into books to create things from their pages. Gutenberg’s power brought him many enemies, and some of those enemies have waited centuries for revenge. Revenge which begins with the slaughter of two teenaged werewolves in the northern Michigan town of Tamarack.
Libriomancer Isaac Vainio is part of Die Zwelf Portenære, better known as the Porters, the organization founded by Gutenberg to protect the world from magical threats. Isaac is called in to investigate the killings, along with Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah and their dryad bodyguard Lena Greenwood. Born decades ago from the pages of a pulp fantasy novel, Lena was created to be the ultimate fantasy woman, strong and deadly, but shaped by the needs and desires of her companions. Her powers are unique, and Gutenberg’s enemies hope to use those powers for themselves. But their plan could unleash a far darker evil…

Great book, I love this series. I really love all the characters and wish they were real and could come to our BookCrossing meetings. Issac's love of reading is contagious and it made me love books that much more. Based on how this ends I am guessing there is another book, I really want to read it!!!!!

Isaac is a bit overwhelmed with the level of evil he encounters but like the Timex watch, he takes a licking and keeps on ticking.....

My husband keeps saying "Do you have to keep reading???" YES! Now I need to read the next one. Minerva - a fire spider might accidentally scorch your wonderful birds! Can't believe I waited this long to read these two books.

Journal Entry 14 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Sunday, July 15, 2018
Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing July meet-up. And book two because I know book one will be good.

Journal Entry 15 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, September 07, 2018
Lena's backstory still bothers me. Sure, the author tries to explain it away by saying she was written by a terrible writer who wanted to write about shapely warrior women slaved to their emotions, but it's still weird. I continue to love the references to the shows I enjoy; Lena mentions an Eleventh Doctor quote in passing (from the episode "A Christmas Carol" if anyone is curious). The ending sets up an interesting twist and I'm curious to see where the series goes from here.
