Assassin of Truths (Library Jumpers #3) By Brenda Drake
Publication Date: February 6, 2018 | Publisher: Entangled Teen
The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.
And it’s not your normal bump-in- the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and
knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.
Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries.
And then figures out exactly what to do with them.
The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love
might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:
Where does the inspiration for your character development come from? How do you decide which is the best fit for this particular story?
Authors are sort of voyeurs. We watch things going on around us. Steal traits and quirks from people we know or see in coffee houses. We binge watch shows and study actors. Just living our lives and being aware helps fill our inspiration coffers. It’s how I come up with my characters.
The inspiration for Gia, the heroine of the Library Jumpers series, came from my nieces. One is a bookworm and the other an athlete, and Gia has both those traits. Both of my nieces have brown hair. One has green eyes and wears a ponytail like Gia. They’re part Italian and Irish like Gia, and like me. Her personality is a mesh of both girls.
Nick’s character I got from my son, Jacob. They’re both grumpy at times, humorous at other times, but always loyal and care about those they’re close to. Arik is strong and silent like my son, Eric. And Bastien, is a mix of some of the guys I knew in my past and some of the actors I’ve admired. Gia’s best friend, Afton, gets many of her traits from a close friend of mine—fashionista, blunt at times, but always there for Gia.
Demos is modeled after a friend. He has the same fun personality. Kale, Jaran, and Lei I got from watching people at our local Barnes and Noble while writing. Pop is my idea of the perfect father. Carrig is strong and caring like my husband. Uncle Philip is from role models from my youth—uncles, family friends, and teachers—that I admired. Veronique is a portrayal of all the mean girls in my life.
The characters in Library Jumpers came to me as I was writing. I know who the heroine, hero, and antagonist will be before I start writing the story, but I never decide on other characters until I’m writing the story.
Who is your favorite character from all the books you’ve read? I won’t pick one of mine characters. My favorite is Four from the Divergent series. It could because Theo James played him, though. *grins*
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
