'Sword in the Stacks' is the second book in the Ninja Librarians series by Jen Swann Downey. It's a series about kids on adventures in a series of libraries that can take people into the past.
Dorrie and Marcus are home safe from their last adventure when they get some strange visitors and an interesting invitation. They are invited to go to Petrarch's Library for the Summer Quarter. Their parents seem a bit oblivious to any danger that the library might hold or even leaving their kids in the hands of these strangers, so they agree.
The story mainly follows Dorrie as she makes friends, takes classes and discovers the mysteries surrounding what the bad guys, known as The Foundation, are up to.
I didn't read the first book, but I felt like I was given enough information to follow along just fine, but I'm still not really sure why the series is called The Ninja Librarians since they are not ninjas and the title they use is lybrarian. As far as young reader adventures go, its ok. Nothing spectacular, but nothing too terrible either.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
