Would you read this book?

This is my current version of a jacket blurb. I would love to know what you think. Would this entice you to read this book?


Not even the librarians are aware of its existence. Only the cats know about the secret chamber under the library, hiding a mystical book with power to change the world.

But a professor who suspects the book survived the fires which destroyed the Library of Iskandriyah, is driven by his blind desire for power to possess it and losing the book once to the same creature who stole his sight has only fueled his vengeful quest.

Will the Guardian Cats be able to save this ancient treasure placed in their care over two thousand years ago? Will the young apprentice tabby, left on his own, be able to keep it out of the hands of the dangerous professor. If he fails, what will happen when a man with that much craving for power has the ability to use it. If he wins, what on earth will he do with the creatures unleashed from the darkest corners of the library who wish to destroy far more than one book.

Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Iskandriyah,
by Rahma Krambo
Would you read this book? Would love to hear your comments?


  1. I would! the only thing that tripped me up was the last sentence, i had to read it 2-3 times before it made sense "The ones unleashed from the darkest corners of the library with the desire to destroy far more than one book?"

  2. Jamila: Thanks for the feedback. I see now how that last sentence would be confusing!

  3. Rahma...I am already hooked by the story. I would Definetely want to read the book. When will the book be published?

  4. Yes! But is the creature that blinded the professor a cat?

  5. Who blinded the professor? Only the cats know... Thanks for the encouragment fellow writers!

    I'm not sure when it will be published yet. Stay tuned to find out.

  6. Oooh, you BET! Sounds wonderful. Thanks for dropping by!

  7. I definitely would - it sounds very interesting! I like these types of stories :)

  8. Fascinating premises! Throw in a couple of short, punchy sentences. Make the founding conflict glaringly apparent in one of the first (if not THE first) sentence. Yes, I'd read it :)

  9. Thanks for stopping by Mohamed. I think you'll find plenty of punch in the story. Be sure to 'follow' my blog so you'll be one of the first to know when it's hot of the presses!


I loved to hear what you have to say!
