Grace’s secret history comes to light.

While all the members of Team Three have their secrets, only Grace seems willing to guard hers with fists of fury. Finally fed up with being kept in the dark, Sal takes matters into her own hands and engages in a friendly stalking operation to learn just what Grace’s deal is. A lit candle and flashbacks to 1930s China help illuminate matters—but things are never simple when magic is in play.

This episode is brought to you by team-writer Max Gladstone and reveals the backstory of one of most mysterious cast members while skipping through time, place, and emotion. 

"Bookburners is sheer enormous fun! Energetic, intense, vivid prose. More soon please."

--Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted and the New York Times bestselling Temeraire series

"Bookburners is the breathless, hallucinogenic love child of Torchwood, the Librarians, and the Laundry Files.  More soon, please."

--Ian Tregillis, author of The Mechanical and Bitter Seeds

"Bookburners is an exciting new take on urban fantasy. Love the premise, love the characters, love the unique (and sometimes wonderfully disturbing) spin on the dangers of magic!"

--Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of The Assassins Curse

"Bookburners has everything I want from episodic storytelling - strong writing, a rich premise, and memorable characters that will keep me coming back week after week." 

--Mike Underwood, author of the Ree Reyes Geekomancy series

"Bookburners satisfies my craving for pulpy, demonic chaos with sharp writing, deliciously sinister magic, stellar black humor, and a kick-ass cast. The serialized story perfectly suits a sorcerer’s codex of baddies while the plucky Sal digs for deeper truths in her work with the Black Archives squad."

--Lindsay Smith, author of the Sekret Series
