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.
"It's a breath of fresh air ... with a companionable heroine in Irene, and a satisfyingly complex plot, The Invisible Library - the first of a series - is a book in which to wallow." (
Guardian) "Fantasy doesn't get much better ... If you're looking for a swift, clever and witty read, look no further (Fantasy-Faction.com) "This witty and spirited adventure sets up a potential gold mine of lore for the writer to plunder in future sequels ... a fun and original page-turner" (SciFiNow.co.uk) "Cogman's dialogue is clever and funny, and her characters delightfully flawed. With this book she has crafted an exciting, fast-paced introduction to a world you will yearn to revisit ... Books such as The Maze Runner and The Hunger Games series are paving the way for stories like this" (Geekchocolate.co.uk)I've seen it compared to Doctor Who, I'm sure it'll be compared to Harry Potter, and it'll probably get compared to every Anglophile novel full of vim and fun that's ever been written. These comparisons will all be well-earned (BastianBalthasarbooks.co.uk)
