About the book:

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.

My thoughts:

Firstly, big thanks go to the wonderful Gordon at Grab This Book and Tor Books for my copy of The Invisible Library. Gordon kindly suggested I should be introduced to this series, and Tor Books agreed so I was thrilled to be sent a copy.

The Invisible Library is brilliant. It’s so far removed from anything I would normally read but I found myself completely and utterly immersed in it from the beginning.

An excellent cast of characters, magic, mystery and so much bookish wonderment make The Invisible Library and absolute treasure to read. I loved every element of it. The world-building is superb, and it really makes the reader’s imagination go to work as there is so much beautiful detail within its pages.

The beauty of reading a book like The Invisible Library is knowing that it’s the first in the series. There is so much more scope for the characters, so many avenues that the author can take the reader down. I cannot wait to read the next few books and get lost in this fantastic universe again. 

Highly, highly recommended!
