MY THOUGHTS

 
If you love hot and steamy with plenty of sex involving mafia men with dark and truly f*cked up women...this is totally your series.  Unfortunately for me, I think I'm just so over reading/listening to a book with more sexual encounters than plot.  This could have been a much more enjoyable listen for me because the backstory was there.  Basically, for me, It just could have been so much more than it was and I do believe that I'm done with this series after this book.  Thank goodness, I never requested any more of this series from Audiobook Boom for review.

The narration is really quite remarkable by Tracy Marks, her Boston-Irish accent is fairly well done.  Her voice is very distinctive though, and unfortunately, each new book with new characters sounds like the characters, Mac and Crow, from book #1.

The Lost Plot / Genevieve Cogman
The Lost Plot - Genevieve Cogman

In a 1930s-esque New York, Prohibition is in force, fedoras, flapper dresses and tommy guns are in fashion, and intrigue is afoot. Intrepid Librarians Irene and Kai find themselves caught in the middle of a dragon vs dragon contest. It seems a young librarian has become tangled in this conflict, and if they can't extricate him there could be serious political repercussions for the mysterious Library. And, as the balance of power across mighty factions hangs in the balance, this could even trigger war.

Irene and Kai find themselves trapped in a race against time (and dragons) to procure a rare book. They'll face gangsters, blackmail and fiendish security systems. And if this doesn't end well, it could have dire consequences for Irene's job. And, incidentally, for her life . . .
 

 

2019 Re-read

When life gets complicated, my reading needs simplify. Ms. Cogman’sInvisible Library series had seen me through a challenging week of no running water and cat care duties.

Ah, the dragon intrigue volume! This is where the rubber meets the road for Irene and Kai. Not to mention whether the Invisible Library will be able to maintain it’s neutrality. Plenty of mysterious happenings, complete with gangsters and over-head dragon duels. 

This is the “diplomacy is hard” volume too. As Irene notes at one point, “And there was another elephant in the room. There were so many elephants in the room that it was getting positively crowded.” 

Ms. Cogman, I will read as many of these adventures as you choose to write. I hope there are plans for several more, as this is too good a fantasy world for me to abandon it happily.

... including shopping for book gifts.  Inevitably, I ended up also getting a few books for myself ...

Good Haunted House Story
The Family Plot - Cherie Priest

Now this is what a haunted house story should be.  Good atmosphere, creepy story.  Good characters.
