I enjoyed this story about magic in the modern world. It’s contained in mysterious books written in blood and controlled by a super rich, possibly sinister, duo of librarians.

In some ways Ink Blood Sister Scribe feels like it was written specifically for me.

The magic system is such a lovely mix of creepy backwoods witchiness and handwritten academic formality, two things that I love but never thought to put together. The characters feel very familiar, like they all overlap with me or people very close to me.

There are little things that feel personal too. Assuming you're just like your sibling until something shifts and you realize all the ways you're different; the violated feeling when you realize the adults around you are snooping through your private stuff; the embarrassment of writing a personal note while someone is watching over your shoulder.

***Mild thematic spoilers ahead***

It treats the hereditary powers trope with the skepticism it deserves. It shows that privilege can be a prison, but it's a prison you can dismantle if you have the courage. It addresses these things thoughtfully and without being preachy.

***End spoilers***

I rarely reread books - I don't read that fast and I have a TBR pile that's miles long - but I could see myself happily dipping back into this story several more times. ( )

A Spellbinding Tale of Family, Magic, and Transformation

This year, I take pride in my efforts to explore the realm of fantasy literature. Although I'm only delving into my third fantasy book, I'm gradually discovering the joy of immersing myself in this genre and letting its enchanting worlds sweep me away.
Ink Blood Sister Scribe, a masterfully crafted narrative of interconnected lives, loyalty, and the allure of the written word, draws readers into a mesmerizing world where magic and family bonds intertwine.
One of the most captivating aspects of this literary gem is the seamless manner in which every element of the story converges. While the revelations might not be earth-shattering, the true artistry lies in how the author meticulously employs each thread to create a harmonious and satisfying whole. The absence of loose ends showcases the author's prowess in storytelling and ensures a deeply gratifying reading experience.

Structured with three distinct points of view, Ink Blood Sister Scribe offers insights into the lives of sisters Joanna and Esther, as well as the enigmatic Nicholas. Initially isolated, each character embarks on a transformative journey, breaking free from their confinements to embrace newfound growth. Among them, Nicholas stands out as a riveting character, thanks to his profound connection with the mystical books. His perspective adds a unique layer of depth to the magical system, casting it in an entirely new light.

While Joanna's chapters sometimes falter in comparison to the others, they mirror her self-imposed restrictions, creating a genuine portrayal of her character. However, it would have been enriching to witness her evolution on par with Esther and Nicholas, transcending beyond just a romantic storyline.

The magic system that underpins Ink Blood Sister Scribe is a testament to the author's ingenuity. Rooted in books and libraries, it's both captivating and insightful, delving into themes of conservation, power dynamics, and control. The meticulously defined rules of this enchanting world elevate the reading experience, and the differing advantages and limitations of each character within the system contribute to a profound sense of camaraderie and unity among the protagonists.

Touted as a blend of magical realism and thriller, the novel's fast-paced narrative ensures it remains a page-turner. Though not steeped in heart-pounding suspense, the swiftness of the plot ensures an engaging and swift read, ideal for those seeking a touch of magic intertwined with familial bonds.

Ink Blood Sister Scribe is a literary work that beckons readers to explore its pages and immerse themselves in a world where magic, family, and personal growth intertwine. If you're in search of a tale that deftly navigates the realms of magic, loyalty, and transformation, this book is a must-read. Embrace the enchantment and get lost in its mesmerizing narrative today. ( )

A modern has a collection of magical books it guards from generation to generation. Magic wards protect their house, but the family is only safe if they stay within the wards. When the magic fades, a scribe must rewrite the books in their own blood. The story follows half-sisters Joanna and Esther. Esther must move every couple of months lest she be subject to a magical attack. Joanna is housebound by the wards. A third member of the household, Nicholas, is a scribe whose work depletes his vitality. Suffice it that none of this is a recipe for domestic bliss.
If you like the dysfunctional family drama or the adventure of the struggle to protect the library, you will probably like this debut novel. ( )
