The Dark Vault: Unlock the Archive by Victoria Schwab - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing The Dark Vault: Unlock the Archive by Victoria Schwab, which is a bind up of the books Archived and Unbound and it's a YA Fantasy book. 

As with all Victoria Schwab's books that I have read so far, I loved this one too. I liked more the second book than the first.  
I really like the way the story goes and how despite my guesses I was still surprised by the plot. Wes is one of my favourite characters. The world building is amazing and different from what we are used to in fantasy books. 
This book is filled with suspense and mystery and it can get creepy some times. Also, Victoria knows how to make a good villain and the one in these books was no exception.

I like that every new book V. E. Schawb writes is completely different  from the others she has written. You never know what to expect from her books and that's a good thing for me. 

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.
Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive. 
Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive. 
Being a Keeper isn't just dangerous-it's a constant reminder of those Mac has lost, Da's death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself may crumble and fall.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
