The Librarians and the Pot of Gold
The Librarians and the Pot of Gold is a book based on a TV series which means the author does not spend time developing characters that are already known to his audience. The reader is pretty much expected to know one is a mental wizard who is able to isolate and find a four-leaf clover in a whole field of clover; one is a super pickpocket and thief; one is a former military colonel with an attitude and one just likes to fight. There is also an immortal man who was once a Knight as well as a multitude of other things. They can also transverse instantly through doors, although the doors are not always convenient. Opposing them is a hiss-able villain. The standard plot is the meeting of the forces, bad wins and gets away unscathed, the good regroup, second meeting of forces the good comes out a little ahead and then call upon their powers and group cohesion to win. There are leprechauns and ancient Celtic artifacts to allow for motive and plot. This book is a TV type plot. The good guys must win to continue the series. Their powers are melded together to create a sense of unity and purpose. The book was enjoyable for light reading. I would class it for teen readers.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
