Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

I was recommend Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by a colleague – such a good recommendation!

It’s a bit of mystery story, but that’s underselling it. Our narrator gets a job at the bookstore, and starts to discover strange goings on – that lead to an ancient society. But for a change it’s not Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstoreabout knights and swords, and the end of the world. In fact quite the opposite!

I found it a very pacey read, and the twists and turns kept it nice and interesting.
