BLOG TOUR: The Hidden Library by Heather Lyons

Welcome to the Official Blog Tour for The Hidden Library, the second novel of The Collectors' Society Series, by Heather Lyons! Today, on my tour stop, I will be sharing an exciting excerpt!

The Collectors Society Series, #2
Publish Date:

Sometime, the rabbit hole is deeper than expected...

Alice Reeve and Finn Van Brunt have tumbled into a life of secrets. Some secrets they share, such as their employment by the clandestine organization known as The Collectors' Society. Other secrets they carry within them, fighting to keep buried the things that could change everything they think they know.

On the hunt for an elusive villain who is hell-bent on destroying legacies, Alice, Finn, and the rest of the Society are desperate to unravel the mysteries surrounding them. But the farther they spiral down this rabbit hole, the deeper they fall into secrets that will test their loyalties and pit them against enemies both new and old.

Secrets, they come to find, can reveal the deadliest of truths.


“Was there any difficulty in obtaining 1847BRO-WH’s catalyst?”
I’m annoyed she asks such a thing, when I’m confident she already knows the answer. “Outside of the labor, none at all.”
She finally turns around and offers me a wide smile. She is truly beautiful, with thick dark hair and bright eyes more shrewd than kind. “Why, Alice. You and I both know you are no stranger to getting your hands dirty.”
“Contrary to what your crystal ball must tell you, until last night, I had never robbed a grave before.”
Her laugh fills the small room. “Could you relate to Cathy, though?”
It’s a challenge to hold back my irritation. “Dead and possibly a specter?”
“Torn between two loves.”
Honestly, the gall of this woman. I drop the handkerchief-wrapped locket in her outstretched palm, refusing to rise to her bait.
The Librarian unwraps the catalyst and pulls it up by its chain. The small locket is dirty, yet manages to glint in the bright light anyway. “Catalysts are always symbolic,” she muses. “This, for example, represents the enduring struggle between two lovers its owner was torn between during both life and death.” She picks up a small cloth conveniently sitting on her desk and begins to polish the stolen jewelry. “Did you see her ghost, perhaps?”
My answer is clipped. “No.”
“Some people believe that beloved objects such as this can be haunted by their owners.” She flashes me an indulgent smile. “Do you think that possible?”
“If it is,” I say tightly, “Mrs. Linton will be haunting you down here in the Museum.”
Another laugh. “She would have much company then.”
