Description

The first in a gripping, adventurous series, The Invisible Library is the astounding debut from Genevieve Cogman.

Irene must be at the top of her game or she'll be off the case - permanently. . .

Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she's posted to an alternative London. Their mission - to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.

Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested - the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own.

Soon, she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality itself is at stake.

The Invisible Library is followed by the second title in The Invisible Library series, The Masked City.

    I say this because it didn’t grasp me in at the beginning when it should have done. It needs to hook the reader. I was quite disappointed. 😕

    A mish mash of themes, ideas and genres that the author is largely at pains to acknowledge - fantasy, cyberpunk, steam punk, crime fiction. An alternative Edwardian London mixed seamlessly with alternative realities, the Fae and more than a passing nod to Sherlock Holmes, all coalescing under the, sometimes over explained, scrutiny of a kick ankle heroine who I assume bears a more than passing physical and mental resemblance to the author. It's brilliant fun and save for some slightly over worked "internal dialogue" it is pacy and action packed with some great characters finely drawn and definitely requiring the odd sequel or five.
