The Mirror of Yu-Huang by Christine Norris

Imagine being a young librarian who can "fall" into a book and go on an adventure...

The Library of Athena Book 3 was sent to me by Zumaya Thresholds in eBook form to review (thank you).  This book is now available in various eBook editions and as a trade paperback. 

While this is the third in the series, it was the first book I've read in it, and it did just fine as a stand alone book.

Megan and her father live in a mansion that has a very secret library within.  She has been chosen as the librarian and must guard the library's secrets from the external world.  Unfortunately, there are those who will do anything to get into the library so they can go after the treasures hidden within the books...

When a Chinese ambassador and his daughter come to the area to enroll the daughter in the private school Megan attends, the school administrator sets up an open house in the mansion with permission of Megan's father.  Before they are there for much more than a day, the elder Chinese Grandfather is stabbed!  And someone has found their way into the library.

Megan has no choice except to follow them, but will she ever get back home?

Magic, action, adventure and interesting characters make this a very good read.  Visit your local bookstore and pick up a copy.  Be sure to check out the first two books in the series - you may want to get them all!

Happy reading.
