Sometimes nerdy readers get the short end of the stick when it comes to having heroes we can relate to. Superman? Did he enjoy opening a new book and smelling the ink on the page? Not likely. Thor? Don’t get me started. Isaac Vainio is a hero for the rest of us, the library nerds and bookworms — all of us who read books wishing we could be like our favorite heroes, or that they could be like us. Libriomancer isn’t high art, but it doesn’t have to be — it is ardent wish fulfillment with a hefty dose of action, romance, literary pop trivia and just a pinch of social commentary.
