Ink and Bone By Rachel Caine

In the year 2031, the Great Library of Alexandria exists as the only legal repository for original books in the world. To own a book is to risk death; the library enforces its proclamations with the ruthless Garda who conduct raids without mercy. Even personal journals are ultimately owned by the library, as the Doctrine of Mirroring allows rare Obscurists to recreate every book in print to be housed within the library.
