Comic book writer Evie Walker arrives back in her home town to find her father terminally ill and ready to pass on to her the “storeroom”. Evie finds out that apparently she is descended from a long line of guardians of the “storeroom” whose job is to keep the contents of the storeroom from falling into evil hands. Little does she know that by guarding the storeroom she will be keeping the world safe from those who would use the contents of the storeroom to destroy the world as we know it. A mix of ancient Greek mythology and history, mythical legends, and adventure with a little romance thrown in for good measure. Vaughn gives us something different from her Kitty the Werewolf series and something totally different than anything I’ve recently read. Don’t overlook Discord’s Apple by Carrie Vaughn.
