My Book Jacket Experiment
The Library Chronicles - Guardians of the Secret, Book 1  

Is there a secret in the Coyle Free Library? What did Emily's dying words mean, "Find it...first."? An unlikely group of adventurers will try to unravel the mystery before it's too late. They'll find themselves thrust into a troubled world. Are they the only ones who can save Traboltia from Malcolm Destrair and bring peace back to the kingdom?
