Alche­my allows the Library to deliv­er the con­tent of the great­est works of his­to­ry instantly—but the per­son­al own­er­ship of books is express­ly for­bid­den.

Jess Bright­well believes in the val­ue of the Library, but the major­i­ty of his knowl­edge comes from ille­gal books obtained by his fam­i­ly, who are involved in the thriv­ing black mar­ket. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loy­al­ties are test­ed in the final months of his train­ing to enter the Library’s ser­vice.
