"Never judge a book by its cover. . . . Due to her involvement in an unfortunate set of mishaps between the dragons and the Fae, Librarian spy Irene is stuck on probation, doing what should be simple fetch-and-retrieve projects for the mysterious Library. But trouble has a tendency of finding both Irene and her apprentice, Kai--a dragon prince--and, before they know it, they are entangled in more danger than they can handle. . . . Irene's longtime nemesis, Alberich, has once again been making waves across multiple worlds, and this time, his goals are much larger than obtaining a single book or wreaking vengeance upon a single Librarian. He aims to destroy the entire Library--and to make sure Irene goes down with it. With so much at stake, Irene will need every tool at her disposal to stay alive. But even as she draws her allies close around her, the greatest danger might be lurking somewhere close--from someone she never expected to betray her. . . "--

Enjoyable, reading the preceding books would fill some spaces in the story. Overall I found this novel to be a good read -

3rd title in the "Invisible Library" trilogy

Cogman produces what I think is the best in the series to date. The first two titles were very good, but frenetic in the last chapters. Here, she constructs a much better plot line - and brings several characters into better focus, including Irene herself. Good to see a series getting better!

Digression from novels and mysteries to fantasy for me. Any genre delving into a literary world draws my attention, and I was not disappointed in this discovery.
Fascinating is the thought that parallel worlds exist and are connected by threads with passageways to and from. A great truth in that that books reveal much about the society they were created in. Add a pinch of magic, travel, and the struggle between good and evil and you have endless possibilities.
I want to spend more time in this fantasy world, reading those books that came before and looking forward to those yet to appear.

This 3rd book in the series finally presents a clearer explanation of the Library's role in Cogman's universe of alternate realities, as well as having more action and use of magic than its predecessors. I did find the brief moment of romantic tension between Irene and Vale contrived, particularly since Vale's role in this novel is pretty minor compared to other secondary characters. Cogman does a decent job of an open-ended finish that doesn't have "to be continued" written all over it, but the secret that seemed obvious in the first book still hasn't been revealed. I'm looking forward to reading how a 4th book will top near-destruction of the Library.

The third book in the Invisible Library. As the previous books, it was fun and full of adventure.
