If you don't know Heather or her other Collector Society works, check out my previous post. It was the second ever review I did back in June. For those who have not read the series, I have a little teaser to whet your appetite and to get you ready for the new one.
This is from The Hidden Library, the second novel in the series:
Later, when the sweat on our skin turns cool and the floor turns hard, she murmurs, “Someone should write a book about how Alice Liddell from Wonderland falls in love with Huckleberry Finn. I might rather want to read that book.”
I bury my face in the curve of her neck. She smells so goddamn good right now. “What would it be called?”She’s quiet for a long moment. I run my hands along her body, memorizing the planes the best I can. A sigh of contentment floats be- tween us, and I have no idea if it came from her or me.I can’t remember being so happy.“It would be a love story,” she finally says. “That’s the title? A Love Story?”“No, no. It would be called An Ode to Polaris.” And then, “Polaris is the name of the North Star.”I kiss the hollow of her neck. “I know what Polaris is. We’re binaries, remember. Can’t it be An Ode to Binaries?”“The point is, it would be a love story. And it would be my favorite.”The breath in my chest stills. Is she—is she saying what I think she’s saying? I have to swallow before I can talk. I’m reminded of how my father looked at his wife when she was telling all the revelers at their anniversary ball of how he proposed to her. He looked at her like she was the most important thing in his world. Like she was the most precious. Like the sun rose and set on her.As much as I loved them both, it was alien to me then. But I get it now. I absolutely get it.When I answer her, my words will only come out as whispers, there’s so much emotion in me. “It would be my favorite, too.”
So there you have it. Don't you want to go read it now? I do! I'm going to re-read all of them just before the release of The Lost Codex. I like binge reading books. I know, I have a problem, good thing I read fast.
Just a tidbit about Mrs. Lyons:
Heather Lyons is known for writing epic, heartfelt love stories often with a fantastical twist. From Young Adult to New Adult to Adult novels—one commonality in all her books is the touching, and sometimes heart-wrenching, romance. In addition to writing, she's also been an archaeologist and a teacher. She and her husband and children live in sunny Southern California and are currently working their way through every cupcakery she can find.
