In a land where the souls of humans fossilize to become books, a group known as the Armed Librarians strive to maintain and protect the tomes stored within the Bantorra Library. Meanwhile the Shindeki church is transforming people into living weapons. These human bombs are known simply as ‘Meat’, and they have been programmed to carry out a single action: to kill Hamyuts Meseta, the Armed Librarians’ director.

But when one of their colleagues betrays them and steals one of the seven war machines of the past, the Librarians must work even harder to prevent their enemies’ nefarious plans from coming to fruition.
