    Let me just lay it on the line for you here When I first heard that there was going to be an original Librarians novel, I was ridiculously excited I had high hopes for what Greg Cox would bring to the universe, and was anxious to see how it would all play out Well, imagine my surprise when The Librarians and The Lost Lamp didn t just manage to meet my rather high expectations, but completely exceed them.First of all, there s the way the book is structured When the story opened with Flynn s a Let me just lay it on the line for you here When I first heard that there was going to be an original Librarians novel, I was ridiculously excited I had high hopes for what Greg Cox would bring to the universe, and was anxious to see how it would all play out Well, imagine my surprise when The Librarians and The Lost Lamp didn t just manage to meet my rather high expectations, but completely exceed them.First of all, there s the way the book is structured When the story opened with Flynn s adventures a decade ago, I figured it would just be a fun sort of prologue, before we got into the main story I ve never been so happy to be wrong This is both a Librarian story with Flynn, Charlene, Judson, and Excalibur getting half the page count and a Librarians story with Colonel Baird, Stone, Cassandra, Ezekiel Jones, and Jenkins getting the other half That means we get that old school Indiana Jones adventure of Noah Wyle s original 3 TV movies, and the contemporary urban fantasy thrills that s about to enter season 3 Whatcould you ask for Second, there s the fact that Cox absolutely nails the characters and the tone This doesn t just feel like an adapted script, it actually reads like an episode of the series All the little personality quirks and voices are there especially with Flynn and Ezekiel Jones and the narrative races along with all the right twists and turns There are a lot of TV tie ins that seem to rely on the reader to bring some of that personality with them, but Cox tackles the story like a fan himself, and it works exceptionally well.Finally, and this is why we like to read as well as watch, The Librarians and The Lost Lamp is like a big screen adaptation, complete with a big screen budget Cox can pack an entire season of settings into one story, taking us from the heights of a Las Vegas penthouse to the depths of Aladdin s cave, along with a full season of special effects, with flying carpets, genies, ghouls, gunfights, andIt feels like a big story, and when Jenkins offers his usually dire warnings about the fate of the worldwell, they seem to carry a tadweight here What s , those warnings set up a pretty big climax that is simply, but wonderfully, resolved.Bring on The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase April can t get here soon enough Originally reviewed at Beauty in Ruins Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher in exchange for review consideration This does not in any way affect the honesty or sincerity of my review.

    I read this book to fill the Relics and Curiosities square of my 2018 Halloween Bingo card.The relic in play in this book is Aladdin s lamp Usually, someone creative takes a book and from it produces a movie or a TV show This book is the reverse engineering of that process and I didn t really warm up to it It is a novelization of the TV show The Librarians Now, as a library worker, I am predisposed to like things like this and maybe I would have enjoyed the TV show But I found the book rath I read this book to fill the Relics and Curiosities square of my 2018 Halloween Bingo card.The relic in play in this book is Aladdin s lamp Usually, someone creative takes a book and from it produces a movie or a TV show This book is the reverse engineering of that process and I didn t really warm up to it It is a novelization of the TV show The Librarians Now, as a library worker, I am predisposed to like things like this and maybe I would have enjoyed the TV show But I found the book rather boring I was chatting with a colleague over coffee this morning and she said that she d seen a bit of the TV show, but hadn t really been very interested in it either Your mileage may vary.There is a distinct difference between what comprises witty dialog in a book vs on TV Where I can see that some of this novel would have worked on the screen, it was definitely anemic on the page Aladdin s Lamp and the Genie should not have to work so hard to create some excitement the rebooted Forty Thieves were bumblers, rather than sharp competitors for the Lamp I guess Genevieve Cogman has spoiled me for the plot device of a central Library that collects important works of fiction from many different realities If the description of The Librarians and the Lost Lamp sounds the slightest bit enticing to you, do yourself a favour and pick up The Invisible Library and get to know Irene, Kai, and Vale The fifth installment of that series comes out in late November of this year and I have it marked on my calendar to go purchase the book that day

    A novel based on the TV show and the movies.A mystery started by Flynn Carson ends up having to finished by the new batch of Librarians I really enjoyed the fact that the story went back and forth between the Librarian Flynn and the group of Librarians that are the main characters of the show By dividing the mystery, each group got to shine without being overshadowed by the others This is a must read for fans of the TV show and the movies.

    With this wonderful, family series cancelled the only thing left are these novels This novel did a good job in capturing the adventure that is this series The series is better but this book is a good addition to the stories overall.
