About This Book:
The first installment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies – think Doctor Who with librarian spies!
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.
I’ve always been a huge fan of fantasy fiction! (Shoutout to Harry Potter & Daughter of Smoke and Bone fans out there!!!)
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to find a satisfying fantasy novel with spells and magic involved, but The Invisible Library has just the perfect dose of fantasy for my liking. The story revolves around missions assigned by the Library (a mysterious organisation) to retrieve special books that are unique to certain spheres of reality. I can’t help but be mesmerised by the idea that not only is there a mysterious Library organisation, but the Library has it’s own ancient Language that allows its wielders to manipulate objects to their will.
The plot itself is more of a young adult read, with minor doses of romance manifesting throughout the narrative. All in all a very easy read, but good enough to get you immersed between reality and magic realms.
