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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
