    “If you are looking for magic you will find it inside this book. Sorcery of Thorns is a bewitching gem, full of slow burning romance, loyal friendships, and extraordinary world building. I absolutely loved every moment of this story.” (Stephanie Garber, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Caraval series)

    From the New York Times best-selling author of An Enchantment of Ravens comes an imaginative fantasy about an apprentice at a magical library who must battle a powerful sorcerer to save her kingdom.

    All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery - magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power. 

    Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but so could the world along with them.

    As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught - about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed and a future she could never have imagined.

    I'm speechless

    I didn't expect much when I purchased this book; in fact I did it on a whim, because I was bored.
    But then I started to read it and if it were one of the magical grimoires in one of the great libraries it took hold of me and pulled me in.
    I won't say much to the story of the book, you should hear that for yourselves, only that much: I loved the characters and their interactions! I can't tell how many times I ended up laughing at one of the exchanges between Elisabeth and Nathaniel or at a dry comment Silas made.
    The ending left me with a wide smile and the only regret that it was over already.
    The narrator did a very good job, however, and this is just a matter of personal taste, I would have very much preferred a narrator with a British accent; The setting of the book somehow reminded me of Victorian England and the American Accent just did not fit into that setting. However, she still did a wonderful job.

    unexpected journey

    This book truly was an unexpected journey in many ways. I didn't only portrait the growing of a young women who, for the first time, experienced the life outside of her once small world. But also shows us the importance if love, companionship and friendship and that these thing aren't bond to races or social standards. There also isn't a true description for good and evil as every individual should be judged by their actions and not by the elements I mentioned above.
    To sum this up in one sentence: "This Book is beautiful."

    Gravity of Heart

    Subtle and bold, with amazing twists and a bright new perspective on all kinds of polarities we call good or evil. Narrated by a wonderful talent, a voice which pulls you right into the rich depths of this magical tale. Do listen!

    Short comment

    Sometimes the voice would change while the "narrator" talked as thought another person was talking even though it wasn't

    100% worth the listen!

    WOW! I honestly can't believe just how much of an adventure this was for me! I've started listening to this audiobook two days ago and I couldn't stop listening to it even late into the night. The story is well developed and everything ties together really well - even if the listener is kept in the dark for a while. The characters are relatable and their light bantering, side remarks and especially Elisabeth's, Nathaniel's and Silas's interactions had me either laughing, smirking or awestruck since they never seemed to have dull or boring moments. I lost count of the amount of times I clutched my mug wide-eyed and nervous or had to stifle my giggling due to how invested I got in the story and it's character's lives.
    Also, the reader's voice was perfect in my opinion! She gave every character a different tone and I could always tell right away who was speaking - even to the point I forgot that it was all read by the same person! A job VERY well done and I can't speak higher praises when I say she had me pulled into the story with every word (which obviously goes for the story in itself as well as the reader!)
    I've read a review before that said the ending left them with a "smile and only the regret that it was over" and I can 100% agree!
    Like Elisabeth said once or twice "if only I could go back in time"... then I would go back to before I listened to this, just to enjoy it all over again 🤭

    A wonderfully voiced adventure

    I somehow didn't expect that much going into this audiobook, but I was blow away. The already intriguing and capturing story was made brilliant by the performance of the narrator. She pulled me in, and kept me listening. I am so glad I gave this book a try! it's one of my favourites now.

    Wonderful!

    This book was exceptional!
    Unlike anything I’ve read so far.
    And also narrated by Emily Ellet, I couldn’t stop listening.
    The story was so captivating from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, action with a little sprinkle of romance 🥰

    Unglaublich, magisch - einfach nur WOW

    Ich habe das Buch gehört und mich in die Welt verliebt. Noch nie zuvor habe ich etwas derartiges gelesen. Ich bin eine kleine Leserate und ich glaube alle die ebenfalls eine sind werden diese Geschichte lieben. Am meisten hat mir gefallen was die Autorin aus Büchern gemacht hat. Ich werde nicht darauf näher hinweisen, dass soll jeder selbst herausfinden. Aber diese Idee war einfach nur unglaublich und einzigartig. Ich hoffe das Buch wird irgendwann ins Deutsche übersetzt, denn dann lese ich es auf jedenfall noch ein weiteres Mal. Das Hörbuch war gut vorgelesen, die Sprecherin kann man sich stundelang an einem Stück anhören ohne genervt oder genug zu haben. Sie hatte auch keinen zu englischen Akzten. Ich konnte jedes Wort gut verstehen, was für jemand der nicht englisch als Muttersprache hat sehr zu gute kommt. Ich liebe es und werde mit dieses Hörbuch immer mal wieder anhören.
