Irene must be top of her game or she'll be off the case. Permanently ... Irene is a dimension-hopping 'book spy' for the secretive Library. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, they're posted to an alternative London to retrieve a dangerous book. But some will kill to retain it.

Stealing a book is standard, if required, but nothing has prepared them for the dangers in store. This world is chaos-infested, so the usual laws of nature have been bent to allow werewolves, fae and unpredictable magic. Irene's new assistant is hiding a few secrets of his own. And when they arrive, the book they seek has already been lifted - by a notorious lady cat-burglar. Plus London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the death to get 'her book'.

Soon, she's up to her eyebrows in thieves, murderers, secret societies, the fae and giant mechanical centipedes. Good thing Irene can call on the aid of a deer-stalker wearing detective (who bears more than a passing similarity to a certain fictional sleuth) for assistance.

And when things get tough, Irene is more than ready to do whatever it takes. For this assignment could endanger The Library and the nature of reality itself.

3.5 The Invisible Library...
If anyone is familiar with the Bookburners serial then you know that it's remarkably similar to The Invisible Library series. I really like the Bookburners serial so I was excited to come across something else comparable. I enjoyed The Invisible Library too and really can't believe I waited so lon...

3.0 Review: The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin Enter the world of the Library, an interdimensional organization that collects important books from as many alternate dimensions as possible. Genevieve Cogman’s debut has an exciting premise and there’s a ton of possibilities to this world, but I struggled a...

4.0 The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman - My Thoughts
My first finish of 2018 and what can I say? I really really enjoyed it!

Books, libraries, undercover agents, secret societies, magic and chaos. The main cha...
