THE LIBRARIANS AND THE LOST LAMP
By Greg Cox
The TNT series has just started its third season depicting a group of people called The Librarians who are responsible for protecting the world from magical relics. The show is a lot of fun, and this novel is no exception. Greg Cox has a gift for making stories based on established franchises seem like they are actual episodes of the show. The Librarians learn about a criminal organization known as the Forty Thieves. Ten years earlier Librarian Flynn Carsen fought them and now the new Librarians must use every bit of their knowledge and gifts in order to stop the group from obtaining the terrifying prize of Aladdin’s Lamp. The genie inside is malevolent and wants to destroy the world if unleashed.
Those unfamiliar with the series will still love the mix of history, folklore, and adventure.
