Assassin of Truths (Library Jumpers #3)
By Brenda Drake
Publication Date: February 6, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen
The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.
And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.
Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.
The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda’s world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there’s always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she’s not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
- What is on your nightstand?
I have sooooo many books on my TBR list. I’ve been reading manuscripts to blurb lately and haven’t had time to read the books I’ve bought or was given. I usually keep four books on my nightstand at a time. I consider my “Up Next Pile.” Right now, I have CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber, THE TRUTH BENEATH THE LIES by Amanda Searcy, LOVED by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, and SISTERS OF ALAMEDA STREET by Lorena Hughes.
- What author would you totally fan?
I fangirl over her every day! It’s my good friend and shelfie mate (meaning our books are usually on bookstore shelves together), Pintip Dunn. I love all her books. I’m so amazed by her creativity and her character development. Her writing is so beautiful and visual. She keeps her readers entertained and on the edge of their seats.
- What makes you cringe?
Touching newspapers or Styrofoam. Did you mean in writing? Ha! I’m pretty forgiving as a reader if I love the story and the characters.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. It depends. I do use a loose plot graph while writing. Some scenes come to me without plotting. Others are more difficult and need some figuring out. So I work from my plot graph and before writing the next scene, I either just see where it goes or I plot it out. I find plotting them out helps write the scene faster.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Love? As in a habit word or special word? I’m going with a special word. I love “mortified” it really nails down a feeling of embarrassment. And I do many things that leave me mortified at times.
This picture is of our cat, Gia. She was a rescue kitty and is a bit of a scaredy-cat. We adopted her around the release of Thief of Lies and I insisted we name her after the heroine of my novel.
