    1. Another series that opened with a great concept and now doesn’t know what to do with it.I saw it in series like Ee's Angelfall and Green's Half Bad. These books introduce us to vivid, fascinating worlds that captivate us, and then the sequels begin to wander aimlessly. Ink and Bone was full of secrets, alchemy, villains and books, set in a unique world where the Great Library of Alexandria (Egypt) rules. Paper and Fire is predictable, forgettable and kind of boring.The first book rode the wave [...]

    2. 3 1/2 stars. The first shelf of books was fully on fire with licks of greenish-white flame. The second above it smoked, and Jess could see paper blackening and curling at the edges. Book after book. Level after level. *Gasp* If that’s not every bibliophile’s nightmare, I don’t know what is.The sequel to Ink and Bone is ten times more cryptic, intense and brutal than the first book in The Great Library series. Ever single character is unceasingly looking over their shoulders to make sure th [...]

    3. Click here and maybe win a paperback copy of Ink and Bone (US ONLY)The novelty wore off. Sadly, if it stayed entertaining, Paper and Fire confirmed the complaints I had with Ink and Bone, and lost a little of its charm along the way. ✔ As it was the case with the first book, we're on for a ride in a fast-paced and action-packed story which manages to stay out of boredom territory at all times. It is addictive and that's rare enough to point. Moreover, alternative history is my jam, so it doesn [...]

    4. As one from Alexandria, EgyptI was so invested in this Alternate/Destopia Alexandria's Great Library Series.With first book that has spirit of "Harry Potter" mixed with "451 Fahrenheit".A World perfectly built, beautifully Alternate Alexandria, Tyranny Library, Forbidden Knowledge, Mystical Alchemy Powres, Wars and Rebellions.With vast diversity of interesting characters.l in less than 350 pages only.But Then came a sequel wasted precious ‘Papers’ without catching interesting enough ‘Fire [...]

    5. Just the thought of burning books makes me cringe! I actually liked this second book better than the first. There is so much going on in this book I don't even know where to begin. Jess Brightwood and Glain Wathen are training to be High Garda's. Jess has got things going on the side as he always does. He's trying to find information about their friend Thomas Schreiber and he finds it and it's not good. I mean in this world these poor people live in I would never want to be a part of because the [...]

    6. Well that was EXCITING, I must say. I'm actually terrified of sequels and the dreaded Sequel Blues™.but honestly??? This was GLORIOUS. It was exciting and had high stakes and was jam packed with emotion and war and betrayal. Plus excellent pacing. I kind of felt Ink and Bone had a lot of slowish moments, but this was just GO (!!) GO (!!) GO (!!!!!) until I honestly need a small year's rest to recover. Excuse me, I just ran a marathon.So Jess continues to be an excellent favourite! I'm so sad t [...]

    8. Paper and Fire is the second book in the Great Library series by Rachel Caine. In the first book, Ink and Bone, we are introduced to a world in which The Great Library is in every city and controls the books of the world. Using alchemy to distribute the books those working for the library track down anyone with any in their possession and confiscate the materials. Ownership of books is expressly forbidden and anyone violating this law could even be sentenced to death. Jess Brightwell's family ha [...]

    9. I was really looking forward to this book but sadly I found it to be just average. It definitely suffered from second book syndrome and actually only moved the story forward a little bit. Most of the time I felt I was on some kind of roller coaster with the main characters repeatedly getting into danger, then escaping only to find themselves in more danger and escaping againendlessly. As with the first book I felt no attachment to any of the characters. To me they seemed bland and unformed. At l [...]

    10. I love these books! The Great Library rules, automatons patrol, & there are so many different countries centered around the written word ; and so many books being the very centerpiece of life. I cannot wait until July. I've liked this author's writing before but she really had something here. This world she has built is amazement on every page and I can't wait to read Ash and Quill.

    11. Another exceptional installment from The Great Library series, Ink and Bone being the first andPaper and Fire giving us book 2.I, personally, loved Ink and Bone,it gave me a promising start to a brand new world created from a history that changed our present day and Paper and Fire continued the perilous journey of the Library'snew recruits, their scholar and their allies.I love the way that Rachel Caine portrays this world, I love the thoughts/concepts behind the history and it scares me too! Th [...]

    12. Considering that the first book Ink and Bone was one of my favourite reads for 2017, I was feeling both excited and nervous to dive into the sequel. We continue on from the events with Jess Brightwell as the main character and is now serving in a military role in Alexandria but on a mission gone wrong, he and all of his friends have to escape in order to survive. You do need to read Ink and Bone before Paper and Fire otherwise you will get spoiled! As before, I do find the long length chapters t [...]

    13. The world Rachel Caine has breathed into life in these books continues to astound me. I can't wait to see what happens in the next one! And I'm thinking I may need copies of these on my shelves you know, in case someone ever comes along and starts destroying books, maybe I'd turn into a smuggler :P Really though I barely know what to say about this except that it seems to have taken what we learned in book one and ratcheted everything UP. The action is nonstop, the pacing is excellent, the chara [...]

    14. I liked this book a lot . It is a good sequel, full of action and adventure. In this reality, the library holds the power and all the knowledge and keeps it from reaching the people, the main characters see their roles change as their perception of the library changes with all they go throughout the book . We see familiar faces and faces we thought we wouldn't see again , if you haven't read this series yet, I recommend you do! .

    15. For more reviews and other mind vomit go to my site at KissinBlueKarenPaper and Fire starts off right where Ink and Bone left off. Jess is in the service of library as a High Garda (aka soldier used to protect the books of the library and it’s scholars). Paper and Fire continues to explore what would have happened if the great library in Alexandria had never burned down, and if the library had all the power and knowledge in the world. Jess is joined by a bunch of other students who have gradua [...]

    16. 4.5 starsLoved this 2nd installment of The Great Library series. It was not quite as impressive and powerful as Book 1, but it came close. I checked the reviews before I started reading and quite a lot of them mentioned the 2nd-book-syndrome, so I had some apprehensions, but I never really noticed anything. I loved the more detailed world-building, the characters and how the story was evolving and never felt bored, but always wanted to get more. More detailed review to come.

    17. Trigger warnings: violence, torture (off screen, but mentioned), imprisonment, blood, mentions of attempted suicide. I think that's all? 20/7/2017On reread, I'm bumping this up to 5 stars. I'm not sure whether it was the knowledge that I could immediately pick up the next book that meant I didn't feel the Middle Book Syndrome as much or if it was simply that I read it at a different pace. But whatever it was, I loved basically everything about this story this time around. (That said, I do still [...]

    18. 2.8 starsI loved book one, this one, not so much. There was a lot of running around, escaping, getting caught, escaping again, running, getting caughtd never really getting anywhere. the endless loop of the same thing over and over. It felt like a filler. Ouch that hurt to say I love this author but shoot me out of the canon it was a circus of escaping escapades. One of the characters who the story would have had difficulty going on without came back, it's a miracle ! Yeh it was too convenient. [...]

    19. 'Want to read'.Hahahahahahaha UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY.I do not 'want to read' this book. I need to read this book. I have never wanted a sequel this much in my life and it is wonderful.Edit:OH EM GEE IT HAS A COVER! AND A SYNOPSIS! AND THE COVER IS FAB AND IT MATCHES INK AND BONE! AND THE SYNOPSIS SOUNDS FANTASTIC GAH I AM EXCITEDP.S. That tag line thing?"Let the world burn."I am about to die of excitement.

    20. I loved this sequel! It was better than the first book and now I cannot wait till January for the third book. It was funny and action filled. The characters are so intriguing that you cannot help but be enthralled by their banter and adventure.

    21. 3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/07/23/I had a lot of books on my must-read list this year, but perhaps few were as highly anticipated as this follow-up to Ink and Bone, which was one of my favorite reads of 2015. Having learned from experience though, I approached Paper and Fire with realistic expectations despite the immense excitement of being able to visit the world of The Great Library again. The first book was just such a phenomenon for me, and I knew it would take a [...]

    22. A very solid middle book that picks up shortly after the events of Ink and Bone. The story remains fast-paced and engrossing, but I didn’t like it quite as much as the first book. The ending is tense, leaving the main characters in a state of uncertainty and peril, but it is a nice set up for the final installment of the trilogy.

    23. 4-4.5 starsWow! Brilliant, clever, captivating, exciting I love this series and these characters so much! The wait for the third book is going to feel so long!

    24. Where to start? After last week's fangirling over the first book, I guess the first thing I'm going to mention here is that this one doesn't have the same quality as the first one. It's still a great read, but not one that gets the full 5 brownies from me.The story picks up about 3-6 months after the ending of Ink and Bone.(view spoiler)[Jess and Glain are both in the service of the High Garda. Khalila and Dario made it to being Scholars, and Wolfe is hauled off to someplace 'safe' because the A [...]

    25. I adored the first book in this series Ink and Bone, it was captivating. So well written and right up my wheel house. I loved the rich historic feel to it and the steampunk tendencies. It was everything I was looking for and more than I could have imagined, which, is why I jumped right into the sequel without hesitation and with expectations running high. I can say with absolute honesty that I adored Paper and Fire, maybe even more so than Ink and Bone. I don't even know where to begin with just [...]

    26. Not surprisingly, the second book of The Great Library series is slightly less awesome than the first book. But having said that, the first was so overwhelming—that’s a difficult standard to maintain. However, Caine keeps the Library overbearing, uncaring, and brutal, exactly what it needs to be in this dystopian world. Even those that should be trustworthy are sometimes traitorous and support comes from unexpected quarters. Difficult choices must be made—who to save, who to leave behind, [...]

    27. DNF - normally that'd get 1-star from me, but I'm going to leave it with no rating. I pushed myself to get as far as I did (a quarter of the way through), and nothing really happening, me not caring about pretty much anyone, and the fact that I was pushing myself meant I should just give it up.Maybe I'll come back with the 3rd book comes out, re-read the first one and then binge on them. But right now, I don't want to re-read the first one, I can't remember crap that happened in the book, and I [...]

    28. “With the right books, we can change everything.”This is a series for bibliophiles. Not just people who love to read but those who love books; the feel and smell of them. There are those people who will pay extra for a physical book rather than buy it cheaper on kindle, simply because they find joy in the inked pages, the ability to feel the cover between their hands.The main character of this series, Jess, is such a bibliophile. He unexplainably loves books and will do anything to help them [...]

    29. I won an ARC copy of this novel through Giveaways. Thanks very much, !Serving in the High Garda is nothing like Jess Brightwell expected. He survived his studies as a postulant under Scholar Wolfe, but now everything has changed. His best friend is gone and Morgan has been taken away to the Iron Tower. When Jess and his allies receive word that all might not be lost, they undertake a daring rescue mission that will place them in an even more dangerously precarious position with the Library, an [...]

    30. When I reviewed Ink and Bone, you may remember I noted that the novel reminded me of Harry Potter and particularly its characters. In my mind, I pictured some of the characters in this trilogy as beloved characters from the Potter series. That trend continues as Caine continued to develop this motley crew. These similarities whether purposeful or not only enhanced my overall reading experience.Intense, filled with death, danger, and horrifying images for any book lover, I quickly became immersed [...]
