{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drak

Title: Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1)
Release date:  1/5/16
Author: Brenda Drake

About the book:
Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are destroyed.

Author Bio

Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


This book will draw in every book lover; the libraries, the magic, the battles, secrets, friends, family, and love. I loved the premise, the whole idea that there are a race of people who are born to protect and defend, the battle for power and supremacy and interesting characters.

Gia's world is turned upside down with a book and a few words. She handles things surprisingly well, there's a big of denial, anger, betrayal, but she's also a strong girl who makes the best of what she's given. I totally related to her love of books, admired her loyalty and drive, understood her losing her mind over Arik, and was rooting for her all the way.

There are lots of twists and turns in Thief of Lies; the constant surprises keeping me turning the pages and wondering what terrible thing was going to befall Gia and her friends. Thief of Lies is a great start to an intriguing new series and I'm eager to see what happens next.
