Paper and Fire is the exception to the rule when it comes to sequels. As noted in my review of Ink and Bone, the first of The Great Library series, it started slow and ended awesome.
Picking up where Ink left off, Paper follows Jess Brightwell in a dangerous mission to save his friends – and himself. Automatons, High Garda, and every senior member of The Great Library wants them dead. Of course, Jess has no intention of giving up easily. Reunited with Wolfe and Santi, Jess and his small, resilient crew manage to entertain in their efforts to right the wrongs of the world they live in. Character development and a unique world remain two of my favorite parts of this series. I look forward to the next installment (Ash and Quill).

The Verdict on Paper and Fire
Paper and Fire is a non-stop rollercoaster from the beginning and, in my opinion, superior to is predecessor.
