Publisher's Summary

The Archive, an otherworldly library, contains the bodies of everyone who has ever died. But when the Archive is compromised from within, 16-year-old Mackenzie Bishop must use her skills as a Keeper to identify the traitor and prevent violent Histories from escaping into our world.

The Archived is the first book in a dark, dazzlingly inventive YA fantasy series from the author of The Near Witch.

eh...

I think it would have been better if the narrorator had a pulse. I struggled to finish listening. the story suffered for the monotone account.

Interesting story

Concept of the Library and the story were interesting. Good twist that I guessed wrong. But the voices all sounded too alike that every character felt the same and the main character appeared so unlikable at times

Great YA read

Fast-paced and engaging characters. Highly recommend for any reader who likes Holly Black's Curse Worker series. Interesting and engaging. A little heavy on the romance, but definitely still worthy of 5 stars. Excellent narration.
