Aloha book lovers! Looking for fun and adventure?
“The Invisible Library”, crafted by Genevieve Cogman, is the first book in a fantastically thrilling espionage series!
“The Library”, which exists out of time, is a hidden organization that collects the most influential novels ever written, each with slight differences according to their reality. Using its doorways leading to multiple different realities, the librarians tasks are to locate and acquire these books, quite often risking their very lives.
Our librarian, Irene, a professional spy for the library, along with her mysterious assistant Kai, is assigned to find a book. They must slyly navigate between worlds and covertly assimilate themselves in those worlds to accomplish their task.
However, the alternate worlds she and Kai go into are filled with beings that seem human but can change their forms into dragons, wolves, or other creatures, and they have magical abilities that are a part of everyday life. To add even more into the mix, there is something unusual about her assistant which concerns her and might make her mission all the more dangerous.
Her quest to retrieve the book leads into a wild and exciting tale which will shake the foundations of reality itself!
This is a “Sherlock Holmes” meets “Harry Potter” meets “Doctor Who” meets “The Librarians” adventure, with guaranteed on-the-edge-of-your-seats thrills that don’t stop until the end! The writing style is quick-paced and at the same time full of evocative imagery which you are sure to always remember. You can see and feel everything as if you are there!
Book two, “The Masked City”, and book three, “The Burning Page” are already out (they were great!) and book four, “The Lost Plot” comes out in January.
We think you’ll enjoy this as much as we did!
Until next week!
