{Blog Tour + Giveaway} Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1) by Brenda Drake

Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1) by Brenda Drake
Publication Date: January 5th, 2016
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance


Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are destroyed.

~Dream Cast~

Gia: I think Maia Mitchell is nearly a perfect fit for Gia. All she’d need was some green-colored contact lenses and she’d be a perfect match.

Arik: Okay, so Gregg Sulkin is totally Arik for me. And he even has dimples! So I had to give you two pics of him one sexy and one with those adorable dimples.

A Look into some of the Libraries they jumped into:

In my novel, THIEF OF LIES (Library Jumpers Book 1), Gia accidentally transports through a gateway book that links the great libraries of the world. I’m here today to introduce the amazing libraries that make an appearance in this first book of the series. So let’s take a tour …

1. The Boston Athenæum (Link: – Boston, Massachusetts. The story begins with Gia and her friends, Afton and Nick, visiting this library. Throughout the series, Gia keeps coming back to this library. It’s her tether to home. The library holds so many book and art treasures, and is full of history. The architecture is beautiful with its sweeping ceilings and large windows. This picture is of the fifth floor reading room. I just love the tunnel-like staircases that lead to scaffold balconies surrounding the bookcases.

2. The Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) is the National Library of France. This is the Paris library that Gia and her friends end up in when they transport through the gateway book the first time. This reading room is massive and I love the circular window that line its dome skylight ceiling.

3. Duke Humfrey’s Library in the Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford. One of the bookcases in this room hides the entry into the wizard haven, Asile. You might recognize this library from the Harry Potter movies. It was used to film one of the library scenes. I wasn’t aware of this when I wrote the book, but it was fun to find out about it. The library with its dark wood and coffered ceiling with depictions of open books on squared tiles, is old and has a warm feeling to it.
