La Grande Bibliothèque d’Alexandrie garde jalousement ses secrets, car elle renferme toutes les connaissances du monde. Mais aujourd’hui, un groupe de rebelles représente une dangereuse menace pour sa tyrannie….

Jess Brightwell et sa bande d’exilés ont fui Londres pour se retrouver emprisonnés à Philadelphie, une ville dirigée par ceux qui préfèrent brûler les livres plutôt que de se soumettre. Mais Jess et ses amis disposent d’une monnaie d’échange : le savoir nécessaire à la construction d’une machine qui brisera la loi de la Bibliothèque.

Le temps leur est compté. Pour survivre, ils devront choisir de vivre ou de mourir comme un seul homme, de combattre leurs ennemis et de sauver l’âme même de la Grande Bibliothèque….

Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealously guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny….

Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the Library’s rule.

Their time is running out. To survive, they’ll have to choose to live or die as one, to take the fight to their enemies—and to save the very soul of the Great Library….
