Review by

Libriomancer gets bonus points for being a very cool idea. More of a 3.5 than a 4 star read, in my estimation, but I found it interesting. <br/><br/>Isaac Vainio is a librarian, who adds information to books catalogued by him, things that only make sense to Libriomancers, he misses his days on the field, but now his life is more sedate, until some vampires come after him and he has to resurrect his rusty libriomancer skills and try to save the day.<br/><br/>I liked the concept, there were times when I felt a little lost by the story but overall I enjoyed it and look forward to more of this series.
