    • Abstract:
      Summary: "In an alternate 19th-century Italy, Elsa has an incredible gift: she can craft new worlds with precise lines of script written in books. But political extremists have stolen the most dangerous book ever scribed--one that can rewrite the Earth itself. Now Elsa must track down the friend who betrayed her and recover the book before its destructive power is unleashed. Can she handle the secrets she'll uncover along the way--including the ones hiding in her own heart?" -- (Source of summary not specified)

Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1

It's bad enough that Leo broke faith with Elsa and their small band of friends within the secret society known as the Order of Archimedes, but he returned to his sinister Garibaldi father, head of the revolutionary Carbonari, taking the editbook with him and putting all known worlds in peril. Situated in an alternate reality Italy (and other imaginary places), this quasi-steampunk/adventure tale is about trust, faith, and family. It's best to start with Ink, Iron, and Glass (2018) in order to make the most of the relationship between the Order, a secret society of pazzerellones (people with extra abilities in sciences) and the Carbonari (a revolutionary sect bent on expelling foreign interests from Italy), as well as the concept of particular scribed books used as portals or as change devices with the ability to impact anything about a world from the weather to who rules. Characters become known through their actions and thoughts rather than physical traits in this book, however there is some indication that they are a many-hued group of individuals. Fans of the first book will find this a satisfying sequel. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
