This is the eighth volume of Ascendance of a Bookworm light novel.

Synopsis

Following a disastrous encounter with a noble, Myne finally resolves to say goodbye to her family and friends in the lower city, changing her name to “Rozemyne” and beginning her new life as the adopted daughter of Ehrenfest’s archduke. However, her days as an archnoble in noble society are brutal, as she is put through rigorous etiquette and magic training on top of her duties as High Bishop and forewoman. It all proves too much for a weak little seven-year-old girl... Or it would have, had the High Priest not offered her the keys to the temple’s book room as a reward. If she could get her hands on those, she’d be able to read all sorts of precious books! Her name may have changed, but Rozemyne’s passion for books remains the same as she charges into a whole new world!

The detailed setting expands as the printing industry grows in size. Here begins Part 3 of this biblio-fantasy for book lovers everywhere!

Summary

With Rozemyne's impending baptism, Ferdinand and Karstedt smooth through her backstory and contact Elvira, Karstedt's wife and Rozemyne's future mother. After securing Elvira's valued assistance, Ferdinand conducts a medical examination on Rozemyne, soon discovering that she has mana clumps obscuring her mana pathways. To cure it, Rozemyne will need to collect ingredients for a complicated potion.

Rozemyne is brought to Karstedt's place to get ready for her baptism. As she gets used to her new environment, she studies hard. Rozemyne soon discovers that Elvira values Ferdinand very highly, and that his mere presence elevates her mood. Rozemyne is also introduced to her siblings: Eckhart, Lamprecht, and, in addition to being her brother was also her newest future guard, Cornelius.

Her preparations for her baptism progress smoothly. On the big day, Ferdinand gifts her a hair ornament from her old family, making Rozemyne tear up. Ferdinand presides over the baptism as High Priest. After Rozemyne blesses the audience to finish the baptism, Sylvester adopts her under the guise of her being the “Saint of Ehrenfest.” Rozemyne is yet again introduced to her new family, with Florencia as adopted mother and Wilfried as her adoptive older brother. Rozemyne is also introduced to her new guard, Brigitte. Wilfried immediately begins by “helping” Rozemyne ditch the baptism afterparty, upon which she collapses in a puddle of blood after tripping and her usual physical weakness.

Rozemyne returns to the temple to be inaugurated as High Bishop. The ceremony progresses as smoothly as anticipated, with a small lapse on Rozemyne's part, as she crushes Egmont, the destroyer of the Book Room with a stern warning. Rozemyne is forbidden from reading due to increasingly heavy study sessions to prepare her for rituals as the High Bishop. A visit from the Gilberta Company brings Mark, Lutz, and Benno. Together with Ferdinand, they discuss the possibility of another orphanage to work in cooperation with the Rozemyne Workshop. However, Benno is doubtful of the success of the printing industry due to the behavior of the scholars. Benno also requests Rozemyne's assistance with the Italian Restaurant, or, more specifically, fluffy bread. They discuss the printing industry in more detail, along with Sylvester's impatience.

Rozemyne takes care of her High Bishop duties and performs the Starbind Ceremony in both the temple and the castle. At the castle, she meets Rihyarda. Rozemyne learns of Brigitte's former, now canceled, engagement and her current difficulties in finding a suitor.

The Italian Restaurant is completed, and Rozemyne takes Sylvester, Ferdinand, and the guards to visit and to discuss the printing industry. Upon discussion, Sylvester heads to Hasse to construct a monastery with white powder and mana. Benno, seeing the sudden accumulation of work realizes he needs to pause the Italian Restaurant and fulfill the archduke's desires, and the cooks and their recipes are sold off to Sylvester and Ferdinand for a month.

More funds are needed, so Elvira teaches Rozemyne the art of gathering donations. Upon exhaustion after the donation tea party, Rozemyne thinks of various ways of gathering even more donations and stumbles upon the idea of a concert with Ferdinand as a performer. Ferdinand refuses, but is chided by Rihyarda and forced to agree. Ferdinand is not pleased, and takes away Rozemyne's reading time in favor of rest, and then studying mana.

Annoyed, Rozemyne works on wax stencils to make illustrations. She summons Wilma to draw Ferdinand and she, after meeting him during a music session, agrees to. Johann's self-proclaimed rival, Zack, wishes to become a Gutenberg and draws blueprints for a wax roller machine to make wax paper.

Lamprecht discusses Wilfried's educational state and Rozemyne and Elvira further their plans for the concert. Ferdinand teaches her to make a highbeast and she creates Lessy. The wax stencils are complete. The concert proceeds and Rozemyne shows off the printing industry with identical copies of illustrations of Ferdinand. Ferdinand is not pleased.

Lutz feels the gap between him and Rozemyne increase.
