Libriomancer by Jim Hines

LibriomancerI really enjoyed Libriomancer. Its the first book in a new Urban Fantasy series. The magical system is based on pulling objects out of books. This leads to a healthy amount of fan service for sci-fi/fantasy fans. Throw in some vampires and golems (and a cute spider sidekick) and you have a fun series. The characters are well crafted and the action scales with the more we know about the world created.

The book pays tribute to the genre, but stands on it own. Well worth the read and looking forward to the next book in the series.
