Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Freshly awake to just what dangers are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad: Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum. Together they stand between humanity and magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.
"Ghosts" is the fourth episode of Bookburners Season 2, presented by Serial Box Publishing. This serial will unfold in 13 episodes.
Frustrated at the still-broken Orb, Liam does some old-school web fishing and gets a nibble from Turkey. When Team Three travels to investigate they stumble upon a strange and ghostly crossroads where Liam is shocked to see someone he knows –or who at least knows him.
A fun mixing of magic and technology, GHOSTS is one of the more interesting episodes of this season of Bookburners yet.
There's a lot packed into this episode, and I enjoyed the way that doors were opened for further future discoveries about the team members' pasts, especially Liam's. Though this episode seemed to reference some events of the previous season, I wasn't ever lost or confused, I was always able to keep track of what was going on.
The mixing of the magical and the technological is something that was very interesting, and I'd love to see more of that in future episodes. The magic in the Bookburners world is fascinating, and I enjoy it's evolution and learning about it as the team learns about it.
If any complaints, this episode was, to me, not as witty as previous episodes, but that did not detract from my enjoyment of it.
All in all, this was, as always, an enjoyable jaunt through the Bookburners universe.Series Titles:
