    2.5/5 This book falls prey to the Bridge Book Blues: too much transition and not enough plot progression/real action. Check out my full review at Forever Young Adult. ...

    This is the sequel to the amazing debut Ink, Iron, and Glass. This series reminds me a lot of the Map Makers series. I find the concept of being able to create worlds out of words is an amazing concept with so much potential. This series does not let you down with its excitement, dange...

    (Publication date: February 19, 2019 Pre-order today) Dammit, sucked in again!!! Alternate world/fantasy authors love the sequel. YA authors love the trilogy with some novellas tucked in between. So a YA alternate world/fantasy author? I should know better, but this is really my per...

    I liked this one even more than the first. It was up and down, with our hero's getting some super twists and turns. The ending seemed a bit rushed to me, but I still liked it. And after the epilouge, I feel like there just might be another book. I hope so!! ...

    It is the nineteenth century in Italy and Elsa can create new worlds using script that is written in books. That is a powerful gift and someone has stolen the most powerful of these books ? this book can rewrite the Earth. Can Elsa trust someone who betrayed her in order to find the ...

    It didn?t take me long to get back into this story. Elsa and her new friends believe that Leo has betrayed them by returning to his father?s side. Unknowingly to them, Leo is trying to keep Elsa safe in the only way he knows how. A bit slow at times, the action picks up at the end....

    I liked it better than the 1st book since I already had an idea of the type of world we were in. It still all felt a bit strange and like information was missing There were also a ton of storylines that I felt like were left unfinished? So I'm not sure if there is going to be a 3rd ...

    As a librarian, I was captivated by the notion that a skilled scriptologist could literally bring a constructed world to life through words alone. AND that one had to be particularly careful not to ensnare a living person by these same "magic" words or else the "textualized" person bec...

    For a sequel to an amazing first book, MIST, METAL, AND ASH was facing some very high expectations from me. Unfortunately, it did not meet as many of them as I had hoped, but was ultimately a good book. Leo is reunited with his family and has to delve deep into the secrets regarding...

    Wow!!! I absolutely loved this book! The second book to the Ink, Iron, and Glass series continued the characters, plot, and relationships in a new way. Elsa, still hurt by Leo, needed to find the editbook. The gang, putting everything on the table had to find the editbook, but also get...

    I liked the first book so much more. To be fair I had just finished a few books that I had thoroughly enjoyed and maybe that plays a small part. I just couldn?t stay focused through most of this book. I had been wanting to get to this second book after really enjoying the first b...

    *It?s more like 3 1/2* I finished this ebook ARC today. I feel like I am just as middle ground on this one as I was with Ink, Iron and Glass. The characters were great and the pace was good. Some plot points were easy to see coming, and some were convenient but overall the story was ...

    A solid conclusion to a series that had a brilliant concept but poor execution. The pacing for the series continues to be slightly off, the twists are not telegraphed at all but to a point where it makes no sense. Every time something happened it was brushed aside and largely moved beh...
