    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one surpassed it. Libriomancer had me hooked, but reading Codex Born, I was reading as fast as I could because I had to know what happened next. Hines does an excellent job of crafting a complex and entirely new problem for his characters to face, while still building off the mysteries from the first book. The only problem now is waiting for book three!

    I loved this book. Different readers have different tastes, of course, but for me, this book (like all of Hines’ books) suits my tastes perfectly. The characters are richly-drawn, multi-dimensional, and effortlessly make the leap to “real” in my head. The plot is complex enough to keep me wondering what’s going to happen next, and briskly paced enough to keep me feverishly keep turning the pages long into the night. And the prose just sparkles with wit and imagination.

    What I don't understand is how I can think each of Hines’ books is perfect in every way that matters to me as a reader - people, plot, pacing, prose - while I’m reading it, and yet ALSO think that each book of his that I read is better than the last. I mean, what's better than "perfect?" "Perfecter" is not a word for a reason, you know. I suppose I could use the terms "past perfect," "present perfect" and "future perfect," but those mean something entirely different.

    Maybe it has something to do with me defining my "favorite book" from one of my favorite authors as the one I'm currently reading. Whatever. Codex Born is both perfect and better than Libromancer, which was also perfect. Somehow.
