About The Book
by Christy Sloat
Series: The Librarian Chronicles #2
Publication Date: May28, 2018
Publisher: CHBB Publishing
With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian Chronicles.
Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians.
While researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…
I cracked open the book and sniffed it. Sniffing books was so satisfying and albeit weird, but if you were a book lover, you did it. Sitting back and getting comfortable I began reading the first page. It was hard not to travel through a book when I read it. It was entirely possible to travel through books that were fiction, once I started my duty as a Librarian. When I did, it felt like the book was now a movie playing live just for me. Everything was in front of me, close enough to touch, but you knew you shouldn't. I didn’t care for it that way, so I usually removed my bracelet and read, the old-fashioned way. But today, I kept it on to practice my skills at reading without moving through the book. That required more focus, but it was important to learn.
A few minutes into the book I heard a sound that made me stop reading and listen. It sounded like music, but there was no music down here, and with the thick flooring above me it was impossible to hear anything from the library.
There it was again, faint but still loud enough for me to pick up on. Listening carefully, I realized it was bagpipes. I put the book down and got up to investigate the sound. It wasn’t coming from outside, so I stopped and listened with my eyes closed. It was in the room somewhere. Not my cell phone, I had checked that. When I got close to where we hid the book I was currently traveling through, the sound got louder and louder. I pulled it free from its hiding spot and it was vibrating with the sound of Scottish bagpipes playing a melodious tune.
Absentmindedly opening the book, I turned to the page I was last on, to see what the devil was going on. Before I knew it, I was being pulled into the book, even as I tried to hold onto the present time, I realized it was hopeless. I was going in whether I wanted to or not.
