The Lord of the Libraries follows The Rover and The Destruction of the Books in Mel Odom's fantasy series.

Again, following the tale of librarian and adventurer Juhg, the endearing dweller must set off on the most difficult journey of his life. The Library of All Known Knowledge has been destroyed, Grandmagister Wick has been kidnapped, and Juhg has been sent off to find the legendary Book of Time. While Juhg would rather try to rescue the grandmagister, his cohorts (comprised of a ragtag lot of humans, dwarves, elves, and a wizard) convince him that he must go after the book instead. More lives are at stake than just the grandmagister's.

The Book of Time is a dangerous book with considerable power. The book was broken in to four parts and hidden away separately. Juhg must decipher clues and track down the pieces of the Book of Time before other groups with more nefarious plans can get their hands on it.

The Lord of the Libraries is even more exciting than the previous installments. Odom has written another wonderful story, full of adventure, humor and fantasy. Continued in the recently release Quest for the Trilogy, I hope he continues writing tales set in this fantasy world for quite a while. ( )
