Product description

Review

I absolutely loved this . . . flavoured with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate worldbuilding and snarky, sexy-smart characters! (N. K. Jemisin)

A dazzling bibliophilic debut (Charles Stross)

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)

Written in a similar vein to Deborah Harkness's All Souls trilogy ... Contemporary meets fairy-tale in this novel (Big Issue)

Surrender to the sheer volume of fun that appears on every page...thoroughly entertaining (Starburst Magazine)

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)

Highly entertaining ... It reminded me a lot of Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series (TheBookPlank blog)

The Invisible Library is everything I could ever want out of a book . . . a stunning work of art that has me absolutely begging for more (FantasyBookReview.co.uk)

Hits the spot straight from the opening page ... one of the most pleasurable debuts of the year (Upcoming4.me)

An adventure story to delight the heart . . . The characters of Irene, her companion and those they encounter are vividly drawn, and the story moves along at breakneck speed to a thoroughly satisfying conclusion (ScifiBulletin.com)

A book that was a sheer joy to spend time with ... solid prose alongside great pace (FalcataTimes blog)

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)

A mix of Doctor Who, Fringe and The Librarians . . . Genevieve Cogman has crafted a well-paced, smart and fun novel that will certainly be a quick read for most people (TheFictionalHangout blog)

Cogman's debut is a tremendously fun, rip-roaring adventure with protagonists that are easy to love and a setting that couldn't have suited my tastes better ... I can't wait for the second instalment (AFantasticalLibrarian.com)

The Invisible Library is currently at the top of my list of favourite books read this year . . . so much fun (Fantasybookcafe.com)

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)

I absolutely loved this ... flavored with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate worldbuilding and snarky, sexy-smart characters (N.K. Jemisin)

Written in a similar vein to Deborah Harkness's All Souls trilogy ... Contemporary meets fairy-take in this novel (Big Issue)

Cogman writes with a vivacity and wittiness that breathes new life into the genre . . . Reminiscent of the works of Diana Wynne Jones and Neil Gaiman, Cogman's novel is a true treat to read (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Book Description

The first instalment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies - think Doctor Who with librarian spies!
