Summary
In the first book in a brilliant new fantasy series, books that aren't finished by their authors reside in the Library of the Unwritten in Hell, and it is up to the Librarian to track down any restless characters who emerge from those unfinished stories.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hackwith's debut is an engaging fantasy centered on the librarian of the Unwritten Wing, a library that houses the imagined novels of authors across the ages. Here, stories can rebel, breaking free from the page in the form of their characters. Claire is forced to take a break from her usual work repairing books to track down one such hero with the help of her assistant and former muse, Brevity, and the nervous demon named Leto who brought her the news. But soon she is embroiled in a fight between hell and heaven to capture a mysterious and dangerous manuscript; while both sides want it, Claire knows it belongs to the library and is determined to preserve it. Hackwith writes a fast-paced, suspenseful story set in an intriguing world where storytellers can duel with words and souls are not what they seem. Bookworms will love the creative spin of a library system rooted in imagination, of interworld book loans flying out to places like Valhalla, and of characters rising off the pages. Readers will eagerly await the sequel.--Leah von Essen Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This excellent debut sends Claire Hadley, the Librarian of the Unwritten Wing in Hell, on a quest across realms to find a book of power. Claire, along with her apprentice librarian, former muse Brevity, and a young demon, Leto, have gone to Seattle, where they hope to recover a character who has escaped from one of the unwritten volumes in their charge. While there, Claire and Leto are accosted by the angel Ramiel, who demands that they return an unnamed book. Once they get back to the Library, they discover that the book in question is the Codex Gigas, a repository for Lucifer's power--and no one knows where it is. But if they don't find it, Hell and Heaven will go to war. Claire gathers allies, including the escaped character, now called "Hero," and a duke of Hell who is the Librarian from the Arcane Wing. Their hunt for the Codex takes them to Valhalla, Earth, and beyond. Hackwith builds her world and characters with loving detail, creating a delightful addition to the corpus of library-based and heaven vs. hell fantasies. This novel and its promised sequels will find a wide audience. Agent: Caitlin McDonald, Donald Maass Literary. (Oct.)"
