Pressestimmen

Mackenzie transfers to an exclusive school for her junior year, but acceptance is the least of her worries. As a Keeper, Mackenzie serves the Archive by returning wandering ghosts (Histories) to the Library shelves, thus preserving the equilibrium between the dead and the living. At the last book's conclusion, she was almost killed by a History and now struggles with anxiety and nightmares. Meanwhile, Archive leadership questions her competence, and she finds herself falling for enigmatic, loyal fellow Keeper. While there's more focus on action than character development, Schwab continues to explore themes of loss, grief, and recovery, contrasting Mackenzie's physical dangers with her PTSD. Several surprises prime readers for future titles. - Debbie Carton Booklist Online"

In The Archived (rev. 1/13), the dead are Histories, each a body of memories to be catalogued by the Archive's Librarians. Mackenzie is a Keeper, whose job is to put wakeful Histories in their proper place. That's what she has done with Owen, a renegade History-but now, in this second volume, it seems she hasn't quite managed to shelve him. He terrifies her in nightmares and even appears in her waking life, disrupting her efforts to adapt to her swish private school and keep up with her Archive work-and her relationship with caring, mysterious Wesley, also a Keeper. Then Mackenzie becomes associated with a series of deaths and disappearances. Are sleeplessness and memory driving her mad? Schwab intensifies terror and threat here, at the same time offering loving relationships and intelligent plotting. Although she leans on characterization and interest created in The Archived, the sharpness of her prose and plot give this action-intense story abundant energy. Mackenzie has lost none of her impulse for analysis ("I've always thought of [people] more as formulas-full of variables, but always the sum of their parts"), and although the story depends more on action and less on emotional subtlety than its predecessor, it's smart and engaging. deirdre f. baker Horn Book"

Gr 8 Up In this sequel to The Archived (Hyperion, 2013), sleep eludes Mackenzie Bishop. She's traumatized by violent nightmares of Owen and later theorizes that the sadistic History might not be confined solely to her fraying mind. People with whom Mac has limited contact start disappearing, and voids crop up where they were last seen. Mac suspects someone is trying to create evidence that will get her relieved of duty as a Keeper. When her concerned parents justifiably hover, making trips to the Archive and the Narrows difficult, Mac has trouble keeping up with the Histories assigned to her. Fortunately, charming Wesley also attends Mac's new prep school, offering more than friendship and backup. But can Mac risk getting closer to Wes with danger already her companion? An exciting climax carefully ties up certain threads, while a well-executed final chapter promises a further installment. Schwab's characters are distinct, and she has a talent for conveying the connections between them. The mystery and waiting-for-the-other-shoe-to-drop sense of foreboding is sustained throughout. Wesley and Mac's romantic tension is palpable, and their dialogue is natural, with plenty of entertaining banter. While Schwab includes bits of explanation and flashbacks, readers will be better served reading this suspenseful and engrossing supernatural series in order. Danielle Serra, Cliffside Park Public Library, NJ SLJ"

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende


Victoria Schwab (www.VictoriaSchwab.com) is the author of several novels, including, The Near Witch-which Kirkus praised for its "shivery horror tang" and "extraordinary sense of place"-and The Archived, of which The Horn Book said "[Schwab] writes of death, sorrow, and family love with a light, intelligent touch and inventive vigor, and provides romance with a pleasing edge of unpredictability." When she is not wandering through foreign countries, Victoria can usually be found tucked in the corner of a coffee shop in Nashville, sipping tea and dreaming of monsters.
