The Librarian excerpt
© Christy Sloat

I bent down on my hands and knees and felt along the floor
hoping not to touch anything gross. My hands grazed something odd. I felt along
its edges. It was hard and didn’t seem to belong there. Now my curiosity had me
crouching in the dark trying to figure out what this was. Finally I found the
flashlight and clicked it on. Focusing the light, I saw the odd thing sticking
up like a broken piano key. It was a floorboard upended. I pushed it to get it
back into place, but all that did was make it fly up further and then
completely out of the floor.
“Well, that’s just great,” I told myself.
I was here in the dark talking to myself. I dared to take a
look into the floor, hoping not to find a rat family living inside or a web
housing a large spider. I did find something, but it wasn’t sinister; it was a
set of books in a case covered in plastic wrap. Reaching in, I pulled them out.
The dust on it was at least three inches thick. This must be the special book
collection Gram told me to read and to keep safe. Anything that was precious to
her, she hid—like the money I found pinned to her clothing in her closet, or
the other jewelry she had taped to the back of her dresser.
I brushed the dust off and opened the plastic to find four
books inside. They were pretty good in size and looked to be in great
condition. They didn’t have traditional covers that you’d see in a bookstore.
Instead they were covered in a thick material to keep the books clean and the binding
solid. I pulled the first book from the case and placed the others back into
the hole. Covering it back with the loose board was easier than taking it out.
I held the book close, and instead of going upstairs I went to my book nook. I
had just washed the blankets the day before. Cozied up in the nook, I stared
out the window one last time before opening the book. I decided I would only
read for a little while before going up to bed. Gram did want me to read them after all.

I opened the first page to the title page; it
was blank. I flipped the page and snuggled deeper into the blankets preparing
to read the first chapter and that’s when things changed. 


This is one of those books I’ve been waiting for for a long time. The story is fresh and it’s an all around new idea. The tragic lover in the story with his obsession for the main character is completely incredible. I’d love him to be my book boyfriend. (which christy’s male characters have a habit of being) I wouldn’t mind receiving my own library in someone’s will. The story itself has so many twists and turns it keeps the reader turning pages wanting to know what happens next. Christy’s magic draws you in and doesn’t let go till the very end and it leaves you breathless and wanting more. I highly recommend this book!
