Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Freshly awake to just what dangers are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad: Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum. Together they stand between humanity and magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.
This episode is the finale of the second season of Bookburners. It’s about Asanti’s trial and the teams finally make a decision on the new cardinal.
There was major character development in Asanti. I wish Liam and Sal had talked about their issues but it didn’t happen.
Nonetheless, it was a great finale and the ending was outstanding.
Now I have to wait for the next season. I’m really glad I picked up this series.
Rating: 4,5 stars
