About the Series

Season 1 of Bookburners transports you to a world where magic is real, and deadly. Created by Max Gladstone—author of the hugely popular The Craft Sequence—the gripping fantasy is written by Gladstone alongside Mur Lafferty, Andrea Phillips, Margaret Dunlap, Brian Francis Slattery, and Amal El-Mohtar. 

The heroine is Sal Brooks, a New York detective for whom danger is a part of the job. After a harrowing day at work, all Sal wants is to lie low in her apartment. But her younger brother Perry and his roommates meddled with a magical text—and soon, Perry pays for the transgression with his soul. Perry’s body seems fine...But something evil lurks behind his eyes. 

Bookburners is sheer enormous fun!” —Naomi Novik, author of Temeraire

Desperate to save her brother, Sal joins Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum, a mysterious secret society within the Vatican. The elite operation is familiar with cases like Perry’s—in fact, rakish team-member Liam Doyle lost years of his life to a similar possession. Together, they’ll stop at nothing to protect the world from the forces of dark magic.

Once a skeptic, Sal soon realizes that the violence she saw on the job in New York pales in comparison to the otherworldly horrors lurking in nearby dimensions. Along with Team Three, she’s in a race against time to fight the rising tide of dangerous magic. 

Supernatural intrigue, secret societies, a kick-ass heroine—that’s a recipe for a sure-fire urban fantasy hit, and Bookburners Season One really delivers. Combining moments of genuine horror with quirky camaraderie between team members, each episode is a thrilling ride that’s just as action-packed as any TV show. 

And if you burn through Season 1 and are hungry for more, you're in luck: Season 4 debuted earlier this week. You can find all four seasons of this addictive delight on SerialBox today.
