The Invisible Library

The Invisible Library 1

(5)
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.
Rezension
I absolutely loved this . . . flavoured with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate worldbuilding and snarky, sexy-smart characters! N. K. Jemisin
Portrait

Genevieve Cogman started on Tolkien and Sherlock Holmes at an early age, and has never looked back. But on a perhaps more prosaic note, she has an MSC in Statistics with Medical Applications and has wielded this in an assortment of jobs: clinical coder, data analyst and classifications specialist. Although The Invisible Library is her debut novel, she has also previously worked as a freelance roleplaying game writer. Genevieve Cogman's hobbies include patchwork, beading, knitting and gaming, and she lives in the north of England.

"The Invisible Library" is the first book in a fantasy/crime series by Genevieve Cogman. Like every other librarian, Irene loves books. She collects them, reads them, is passionate about them. Unlike most other librarians, Irene has to travel to alternate worlds to collect them, which can be quite eventful and at times even pretty dangerous. In this installment we follow Irene to an alternate world to obtain a unique copy of the Brothers Grimm's fairytales. Unfortunately she and her apprentice aren't the only ones who are looking for said book and the situation escalates fast. In order to defeat vampires, rogue librarians and faes, Irene and Kai have to liase with a local detective. Can he be trusted, though? Unsurprisingly, the importance of books is what intrigued me about this novel and made me read it. Although it has a good plot and an interesting setting, "The Invisible Library" didn't captivate me as much as I hoped it would.
