(From the publisher):
After his adventures on the mainland in The Rover
, Wick returned to his duties at the Vault of All Known Knowledge and quickly worked his way up the hierarchy, continuing his quest for the preservation of books and the knowledge contained therein.
And now that quest is threatened.
It is many years later, and lowly Wick is now Grandmagister Lamplighter of the Great Library. His trips to the mainland are fewer due to his advanced age, and lately he has enlisted an assistant by the name of Juhg to undertake those roving duties he used to relish.
An encounter with a goblin ship on the high seas leads to Juhg's discovery of a book in goblin hands, a matter that must be investigated.
This single event leads to startling revelations that forewarn of a great evil that exists, an evil every bit as powerful as the Vault of All Known Knowledge, and whose presence in the Great Library may indeed result in
The Destruction of the Books
And perhaps far worse.
