Emily Ellet narrates this captivating fantasy about a sword-wielding librarian in a world of sorcerers, demons, and grimoires with unique personalities. Ellet enchants the listener from the very beginning as magical grimoires whisper at apprentice librarian Elisabeth. However, the magic of the story is frequently interrupted by several small production edits, and the listener may find this distracting. Additionally, Ellet's narration is so quiet for the soft-speaking characters, such as the demon Silas and some of the grimoires, that listeners may find themselves constantly adjusting their volume. The edits and volume discrepancies are enough to break immersion into the story. Otherwise, Ellet is a captivating narrator who adds personality to a wide cast of characters.
