As THE LIBRARIAN: QUEST FOR THE SPEAR opens, brilliant 30-year-old student Flynn Carsen is kicked out of school by his professor because he believes Carsen, after earning 22 degrees, lacks life experience and thinks it would be a disservice to him to continue on. While Carsen’s mother, Margie, is haranguing him about finding love and setting him up on blind dates, Carsen receives a mysterious invitation to interview for a job at the Metropolitan Public Library. After a bizarre but successful interview, Charlene and library head Judson reveal to Carsen the true nature of his job. He is charged with protecting the greatest treasures of history, which are being kept in a secret section of the building.
Carsen finds out the job is more than he bargained for when members of the malevolent Serpent Brotherhood break into the library and steal one of three portions of the Spear of Destiny, an ancient holy relic that grants its owner control over the world’s destiny. He must now track down the other two portions to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.
