WHY SERIAL BOXERS LOVE IT: fun & fast-paced, strong female characters, lots of monsters and magic, dream-team ensemble cast, tons of globetrotting

Magic is real and some books have teeth. Join Detective Sal Brooks, newest recruit to a black-ops magic hunting team, as she travels the world to keep the supernatural in check. Just remember: watch your back and don’t touch anything.
The tide of magic is rising and the Bookburners must sink or swim. Big secrets—about the Society, the world, and the murky pasts of our heroes will come to light . . . that is, if the team can stay alive to learn them.
The world as we know it is under siege. The Bookburners are stretched thin trying to control an influx of magic—and they don’t have much support from the Vatican. Can they overcome their history and band together to protect humanity from an increasing magical threat? Or will it destroy them, like it has destroyed everything else in its path?
Everything in the Bookburners’ lives falls into two categories: Before London and After London. Before London, things were strange, sure, but After London . . . “strange” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Magic is everywhere—and the Bookburners can only be in one place at a time.
The End is nigh. Magic is loose and spreading across the world, distorting and transforming everything in its path. To contain the chaos, the angelic makers of the world have unleashed a titanic demolition team to uproot the very foundations of Creation. And even as reality comes crashing down around them, the Bookburners rally one last time to stand between Earth and the Apocalypse.
