A lost God."
"A library of the secrets of the universe.
"A woman too busy to notice her heart slipping away."
Carolyn is not so different from the other people around her.
He likes guacamole, cigarettes and meat.
He knows how to use the phone.
The clothes are a bit complicated, but everyone says nice things about their costume with the Christmas sweater on the golden bicycle shorts.
After all, she was once a normal American.
That was a long time ago, of course.
Before his parents died.
Before she and the others were received by the man they called Father.
In the years since then, Carolyn hasn't had the chance to get out much.
Instead, she and her adopted siblings have been brought up according to the old customs of the Father.
They have studied the books in your Library and have learned some of the secrets of your power.
And sometimes, they have wondered if their cruel guardian could be God in secret.
Now, the Father is missing, perhaps even dead, and the Library that holds his secrets is unprotected.
And with it, control over all creation.
As Carolyn gathers the tools she needs for the coming battle, the fierce competitors for this prize will line up against her, all with powers far beyond her own.
But Carolyn explained this.
And Carolyn has a plan.
The only problem is that in war to make a new God, she has forgotten to protect the things that make her human.
Populated by an unforgettable cast of characters and driven by a plot that will surprise you time and time again, The Library at Mount Char is both horrifying and hilarious, hallucinatory alien and heartbreakingly human, overwhelmingly visionary and exciting, and signals the arrival of a new and important voice in fantasy.
