Bug Description

Match Books:
Trapped (The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book Five)


gets the following error:

seems to be an issue with parentheses -- when I remove them, it searches
just fine.
The error message is the same if the last parenthesis is removed, fixed by
removing the parenthesis in the middle, so it's a little innacurate as well.
