The Book of Deleted Words - The Last Lines
The magical world of books, where the characters from novels lead their own lives, has become a second home for London-based Hope Turner. Yet the secret of the book world is under threat, and Hope has joined an alliance of human beings and characters to protect it. Her opponent, Quan Surt, has succeeded in breaching the barrier between the two worlds. Ever since, book characters, even the most evil villains, have been able to journey into the real world.
