Sneak Peek at The Archived by Victoria Schwab

I got the NetGalley of The Archived, and was crushed when I finished it and realised it was only a sneak peek, not the whole book! I was wondering why nothing seemed to be wrapping up... Anywho, so that was annoying, but I'm really looking forward to reading the rest!

The Archived is about a girl named Mackenzie, who is a Keeper. That means that when Histories (copies of dead people that store their memories) escape from the Archive, it's her job to find them and put them away.

The sneak peek is only about 100 pages long, so it's mostly world building and character background, but it's been really interesting. Scenes from the present alternate with flashbacks to Mackenzie's conversations with her grandfather, who was a Keeper, and trained her to take his place. Also, a cute boy who wears eyeliner has appeared, and I am intrigued.

The Archived comes out on January 22. I've already preordered it!
