The Bygone Archive (The Greater Lands Saga Book 2) Kindle Edition
Things are looking up for the Masker family. Fel, the adventurer of the clan, has stocked the antiquity shop with valuable contraptions unearthed during his journeys. Sales are strong, customers are happy, life is good. But rival families know the Maskers are unlocking ancient secrets about the arcane devices, and their spies will stop at nothing to have them. The promise of a lost archive sealed within the fabled Greater Lands Wall could give the Maskers the edge to ward off their foes and uncover the wisdom of old.
Fel knows the most precious treasures are protected by the most dangerous traps, but is anyone ready for what the Greater Lands have in store?
Dragons, harpies, kobolds… If Fel Masker wants the secrets of the past, he must face its monsters.

His sister is trying to avoid giving their most precious contraptions away to the government (I forgot the real name), and she's on a mission to find sell them instead of having them taking away. This leads her to a bazaar, where she meets a man who isn't what he seems.
From there, Fel is off to the Bygone Archive, a library full of books on contraptions that details how to make and fix them. It's a treasure trove if they can get their grubby hands on them.
Tome, the paper mage and Oiler, the contraption that always wants to fix things are along for the ride. Oiler just happens to repair a trap at the wrong time, and after a solid dunking in a river, find themselves inside the wall.
From there the group is off to meet the wizard... um, off to meet a dragon who's been trapped since the Bygone era occurred. Fel, who makes a living of disabling traps, is tasked to release the dragon.
I won't spoil what happens after that, but it's a lot of fun. This isn't an overly long book, but it's richly developed and each Masker plays a key role as they try to keep their competitors from taking what it theirs.
And if the name Masker means something (and it does), then what does the name Graves stand for?
Besides the obvious.
I really enjoyed book 2. The opening was confusing as all get out because I'm still trying to remember who is who, and then this is tossed in, like a grenade in a green salad. It's crunchy, but you certainly don't expect it.
After that the book picks up steam quickly. I'm looking forward to finding out what the Maskers (and their new associates) get up to in book 3.
Plot: We are going over the wall. There may or may not be a dragon or two involved.
Characters: I enjoy the Maskers and how competent they are.
