Little is at it seems on the high seas when a magical book wreaks havoc on a luxury yacht.

The Team saves on flight costs as the newest mystery happens around the corner. A tip from a local antiquarian doesn’t make it to the Team in time and they are left with a once-bookstore-now-rubble-pile, a missing magical tome, and very few clues beyond a helpful tour guide (one might even say too helpful…). Tracking the missing book to a luxury yacht, the Team gets less of the high-end boating experience and more of the demon-on-the-loose nightmare. All aboard the Fair Weather; but no smooth sailing ahead.

This episode is brought to you by team-writer Margaret Dunlap and introduces readers (and our heroine) to not only the true dangers of Bookburning, but to mysterious secrets even cloudier than the Societas Librium Occultorum. 


"Bookburners is sheer enormous fun! Energetic, intense, vivid prose. More soon please."

--Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted and the New York Times bestselling Temeraire series

"Bookburners is the breathless, hallucinogenic love child of Torchwood, the Librarians, and the Laundry Files.  More soon, please."

--Ian Tregillis, author of The Mechanical and Bitter Seeds

"Bookburners is an exciting new take on urban fantasy. Love the premise, love the characters, love the unique (and sometimes wonderfully disturbing) spin on the dangers of magic!"

--Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of The Assassins Curse

"Bookburners has everything I want from episodic storytelling - strong writing, a rich premise, and memorable characters that will keep me coming back week after week."

--Mike Underwood, author of the Ree Reyes Geekomancy series

"Bookburners satisfies my craving for pulpy, demonic chaos with sharp writing, deliciously sinister magic, stellar black humor, and a kick-ass cast. The serialized story perfectly suits a sorcerer’s codex of baddies while the plucky Sal digs for deeper truths in her work with the Black Archives squad."

--Lindsay Smith, author of the Sekret Series

Customer Reviews of Bookburners: Fair Weather: Episode 3


Rated 3 out of 5 by from it packs a few fun surprises that nearly had me cheering. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy: Perhaps because it didn't involve jetting around the globe, FAIR WEATHER felt shorter than the first two episodes of the BookBurners. Still, it packs a few fun surprises that nearly had me cheering. Readers were introduced to quite a few new characters in this episode, including the leader of Team 1 (Sal is on Team 3). Team 1 are the ones who will terminate people infected with the evil magic that can leak out of the books. They clean up the messes is Team 3 doesn't recover the artifacts in time, so there is obviously some tension between the two teams. You definitely get the feeling that there is a lot more going on than what Sal's team is doing, and that not all of it is very nice. The descriptions of the demonic manifestation was super gross this time, and there were some excellent bits of humour and good pacing as they were trying to deal with the black sludge that is slowly filling the cruise ship they find themselves trapped on. We also get a glimpse at a potential villain for the series, although it's absolutely not what you think it was at the end. A good addition to the series.
