Today I am chatting with my friend Rachel from the Barely Bookish podcast about the book Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson.
What could be better than a book about magical books? I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book! Take a listen as Rachel and I chat about the magic system, magical grimoires with their own personalities, what happens when a sorcerer has nightmares, the fantastic enemies to lovers trope, our speculations on if a demon can truly care for someone or not, and more!
A little about Sorcery of Thorns:
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.
Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire, and Elisabeth is implicated in the crime. 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 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.
