Product Description

Brilliant and so much fun. Skulduggery, Librarians, and Dragons ‰ÛÒ Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series!Cogman‰۪s writing is fresh, with a rich tonality ranging from the whimsical and witty to the suspenseful . . . the story is buoyed by the fast action scenes, and readers will be fascinated by the ever-growing complexities of Cogman‰۪s worldThe Burning Page does not disappoint. It‰۪s a fun, adventure-filled romp . . .If you haven‰۪t picked up this series and you like magic, adventure, Sherlock Holmes, a dash of steampunk, lots of mystery, and books, then definitely pick up The Invisible Library! If you‰۪ve read the first two and liked them, you‰۪ll certainly enjoy The Burning PageIt‰۪s fun. It‰۪s packed with chaotic and dramatic adventures and is witty to bootThe author writes with a speed and verve that keeps you on the edge of your seat through a rollicking good adventure . . . The Burning Page is not only hard to put down, it‰۪s hard to walk away fromThe Burning Page is action packed from start to finish, so that even Irene and you the reader hardly get the chance to catch your breathThis excellent series has traces of the satire of Terry Pratchett, the breadth of imagination of Jasper Fforde, and the wonderful ability of Neil Gaiman to mix reality and fantasy in one satisfying whole, but make no mistake: it feels in all senses original and engrossingA gripping addition to the mythos Cogman has already builtThe Invisible Library series is tailor-made for bibliophiles . . . It‰۪s immensely entertaining, and I continue to love Irene and her third person narrative voice: she‰۪s practical, analytical, and competent, and she handles the absurd situations in which she constantly finds herself with aplombThis is for all fans of Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair or Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London - a sparkling novel featuring Librarian spies, stolen books and top-secret missions . . .

An action-packed literary adventure! The Burning Page is the third title in Genevieve Cogman's clever and exciting The Invisible Library series.

When it's your job to save the day ‰ÛÒ where do you start?

Librarian spy Irene has standards to maintain, especially while on probation. And absconding from a mission via a besieged building doesn't look good. But when her escape route home goes up in flames, what's a spy to do? However, it seems Gates back to the Library are malfunctioning across dozens of worlds. Worse still, her nemesis Alberich is responsible ‰ÛÒ and he plans to annihilate the Library itself.

Irene and assistant Kai are posted to St Petersburg, to help combat this threat. Here Alberich emerges, as Irene tries to save her friend Vale and foil assassination attempts. Then one incredibly dangerous opportunity to save the Library emerges. Saving herself would be a bonus . . .

Irene's adventures feature stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies ‰ÛÒ think Doctor Who but with librarian spies! Continue the bookish magic with The Lost Plot.

'Skulduggery, Librarians, and Dragons ‰ÛÒ Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series!' ‰ÛÒ Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files

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. The Invisible Library is her debut novel, but she has also previously worked as a freelance roleplaying game writer. Following The Invisible Library, The Masked City and The Burning Page, The Invisible Library series continues with The Lost Plot and The Mortal World. Genevieve Cogman's hobbies include patchwork, beading, knitting and gaming, and she lives in the north of England.

The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman is the perfect read for book-lovers everywhere. It's a fast-paced adventure ‰ÛÒ think Doctor Who, but with Librarian spies. Reviewers have also found a dash of Discworld and Jasper Fforde, a hint of Sherlock Holmes and a great deal of humour.

The first novel in the series, The Invisible Library, introduces Irene and her assistant Kai: a pair of librarian spies on a mission to retrieve a dangerous book from a parallel world. In an alternative version of Victorian London ‰ÛÒ where magic runs rife ‰ÛÒ they soon find that the book they seek has already been stolen. Cue a whirlwind quest down a rabbit hole of forbidden societies, twisted plans, new friends, old enemies and the occasional dragon. What could possibly go wrong? Irene and Kai‰۪s (mis)adventures continue in The Masked City, which takes them to a sinister version of Venice, and then in The Burning Page and beyond things really start to heat up . . .
