Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glenn Dakin
Recommended by: Katrina, Library Technical Assistant
Theo is a lonely teenager with a mysterious illness who only knows three people in the world. When that suddenly changes, societies of good and evil vie for the mysterious power he harbors. This is a fast paced adventure through modern and Victorian London and the secret underground world beneath it. It is the first book of The Candle Man series, and I can't wait for the next one!
