The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.

And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.

Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.

The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

The world of the Library Jumpers series

 

 

Hidden behind bookcases in some of the most beautiful libraries in the world lies a magical realm hidden for centuries from humans. In the Library Jumpers series, wizards, with help from the fey nation, created the Mystik realm to protect creatures with unique exteriors and magical abilities from human persecution. The magic faltered and splintered until the many wizard havens and Mystik covens became separated like islands.

The fey created the gateway books to make travel to the havens and covens quicker and easier to access. As time went by, the gateway books were kept in libraries. The fey then produced a force of magical knights called Sentinels to guard the libraries and keep humans safe from rogue Mystiks seeking revenge on humans for past oppressions.

Our heroine in the book, Gia Kearns, accidentally transport through a gateway book linking the great libraries of the world and enters this other realm at a time where unrest has heightened and travel through the gateway books and the entrances to the Mystik world restricted. Today, I’m taking you on a mini tour of the wizard havens in the Library Jumpers series.

Let’s start with Asile, which is located in a magical realm on the border of England and is accessed under a bookcase in the Duke Humfrey’s reading room of the Bodleian Library in Oxford University, England. The wizard haven is a castle surrounded by small homes that house the guards’ families.

The entrance into the French haven, Couve, is behind a bookcase in The Senate Library in Paris, France. Lush gardens and a quaint village surround the salt-white castle.

The haven of Esteril is located through The National Library of Russia in Saint Petersburg. The castle is made of gray slate. The land is cold and dark.

The Spanish haven of Santara has lush, green grounds with the most amazing flowers and fruits unknown to the human world. The entrance to this haven is hidden behind a portrait of a young King Charles II in the Library of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial in San Lorenzo Del Escorial, Spain.

Mantello Haven in Italy is where Gia’s great-grandfather is from. The entrance is located in Riccardiana Library in Florence, Italy. The castle is stately and the village is quaint with winding roads and many shops. There are festivals, wine making, and a unique bookstore.

Ireland’s Trinity College hides the staircase into the haven of Tearmann. The haven is like walking into a fairytale or like entering a large Hobbit village. The foliage is lush and green and the homes colorful and stout.

Finally, Veilig Haven is accessible through the Port Elizabeth Public Library in South Africa. The vast and beautiful castle is at the edge of a high cliff with the Aqualian Sea directly below it.

There are many other entries within the libraries leading to Mystik villages and covens. The Mystiks living in these places choose to live outside of the safety of the wizard havens, not trusting the Wizard Council to treat them fairly.

And that’s just a brief introduction to the Library Jumpers’ world. Which haven would you want to visit?

    My favorite library was my elementary school library. We had a wonderful librarian named Mrs Harris. She actually she retired a few years ago when my daughters started the same school. She saw that I loved books and took me on as a helper. I was in the library almost as much as I was in the classroom. That developed my love of reading in such a big way. The new librarian doesn’t do this when the new generation and that makes me sad.
