Who or what is Endymion Spring? A power for good, or for evil . . . A legendary book that holds the secret to a world of knowledge . . . A young boy without a voice - whose five-hundred-year-old story is about to explode in the twenty-first century . . . Blake is visiting Oxford with his academic mother and his kid sister. While their mum immerses herself in olde worlde volumes, Blake feels trapped in the dusty air of the college library. Until one day, Blake is running his finger along the shelf and feels something pierce his finger, drawing blood - like a bite. The book responsible is a battered old volume, with a strange clasp like a serpent's head - with real fangs. Printed on its front are words: Endymion Spring. Its paper is almost luminous - blank, wordless, but with a texture that seems to shine, and fine veins running through it. The paper quivers, as if it's alive. And as Blake looks, words begin to appear on the page - words meant only for him; words no one else can see.

Not a bad book, but a little confusing, and a little dry in some parts.

Blake finds an old book in a library at Oxford University. The book has a long and magical history and is sought by others who want to know its secrets. I found that the plot lines didn't tie together as well as they might have, but still, a good read for kids who enjoy fantasy.

Lots of plot holes and jumps in this book. Suitable for the young audience in which it was intended.

Moving from the past to present and back again, this adventure starts in Gutenberg''s printing shop with a young mute printing devil that comes across some magical paper that can transform itself. As he shares his thoughts in the leather covered journal, he hides it so that an evil man named Fust cannot find it and destroy it. Centuries later, a young boy named Blake is wandering through a library in Oxford, and as he runs his fingers along the shelf, an old book bites his finger. When Blake opens the book, he finds that it is blank to everyone else, and the secrets it reveals may bring him closer to evil than he could have imagined.
