The Binding by Bridget Collins

Staff Pick

Bridget Collins has created a world so lush and magical and beguiling. A poor farmer’s son, Emmet Farmer, and the privileged Lucian Darnay are doomed to be star-crossed lovers, a Romeo and Romeo for the modern age. In this world, books are feared, as they contain peoples’ memories, their secrets, grief, and pain. Despite books’ taboo, they are illegally traded. As Emmet becomes an apprentice to a bookbinder, a field surrounded by ignorance, prejudice, and superstition, he’s set on course to rediscover himself. In a story of murder, magic, separation and ruthless forces, do Emmet and Lucian’s love stand a chance in a hostile world?
