Ansul was once a peaceful town filled with libraries, schools, and temples. But that was long ago, and the conquerors of this coastal city consider reading and writing to be acts punishable by death. And they believe the Oracle House, where the last few undestroyed books are hidden, is seething with demons. But to seventeen-year-old Memer, the house is the only place where she feels truly safe.

I think this book is suspensful in some places but also sad. When it's sad you feel sad too, as if you're the character. I would recomend this book to anyone. Just to try no matter what kind of books they are into.
