Mystery

The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections by Eva Jurczyk. Liesl Weiss has been (mostly) happy working in the rare book department of a major university, handling the details and working behind the scenes to make the head of the department look good. But when her boss has a stroke and she has to deal with things, she discovers the library’s most valuable manuscript is missing. Liesl tries to raise the alarm and notify the police of the priceless book’s disappearance, but is repeatedly told to keep quiet to keep the doors open and the donors happy. But a librarian also disappears. Liesl must investigate the two disappearances, unraveling his colleagues’ past like the threads of a rare book binding as it becomes clear that someone in the department must be responsible for the theft. What Liesl discovers about the dusty manuscripts she’s worked among for so long—and the people who preserve and revere them—shakes the very foundations on which she’s built her life.

Five dragonets are gathered to fulfill the prophecy, raised in a hidden cave and conscripted, against their will, to end the terrible war. But not all dragonets want a fate. And when the Chosen Five escape their subterranean captors to search for their original homes, what’s been unleashed on the dragon world may be far more than the revolutionary planners anticipated. . .
