    Description

    The first in a gripping fantasy-mystery 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 adventurous title in the The Invisible Library series, The Masked City.

    I am a Librarian

    This was a bit too drawn out and overly down for my liking. While it had the makings of a great story it seemed to get lost in all the details the author was trying to put in. The main character Irene needs a confidence booster in the worst way and if I heard I am a Librarian one more time I thought I was going to scream We Know That Already!
    Narrator was wonderful and had a great voice and voices. Just wish the story lived up to the hype.

    What an amazing find

    I don't remember how I came across this audiobook, but I purchased it on a whim. I so love it when I buy something I've never heard of and it more than meets my expectations.

    The story, as told from Irene's POV, paints a wonderful picture of the way she thinks. From her introduction to Kai and Vale and their developing friendship, to her reaction to Silver (I love Silver. I want more Silver). But even beyond that was the additions of book references -after all she is a Librarian and book lover.

    The descriptions of the Library spaces as well as the London in Vale's world were well done without being too much. It had a wonderful Urban Fantasy feel without going into the harshness & pure negativity that some UFs dive into.

    A definite 5 star listen. I look forward to more Irene and Kai (and hopefully more Vale and Silver) in the next book.

    The reader is awful. Cadence is just bad.

    While the Kindle book is entertaining the audio book is horrible, The reader (just a reader, not a performer) has a cadence that is bum bum bum pause bum bum bum pause. Saying it is irritating is being nice. Compare her to Bronson Pinchot or Zara Ramm (two of the best) and it's not in the same universe. Please hire trained vocal actors in the future.
