Librarian spy Irene and her apprentice Kai return for another "tremendously fun, rip-roaring adventure," (A Fantastical Librarian) third in the bibliophilic fantasy series from the author of The Masked City. 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 to find 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 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 from somewhere close--someone she never expected to betray her...

Book 3 finds our characters back in London after a daring escape from Chaotic Venice only to find them faced with some very unsettling events…burning gates, giant spiders, werewolves , the descent into madness, and the return of an old enemy.

A heartstopping third book in the Librarian series. Once again we are faced with a thickening plot showing repercussions that make themselves known from actions taken in the books prior. The protagonist left with no choice but to take drastic measures with each page.
Finishing with an unexpected twist, a page-gripping fight and more actions to pay for as the series moves onto the 4th book.
Surely Cogman can't surprise us anymore... Right?

Husband: So what did you do this afternoon?

What I think: I‘ve ridden on the back of a dragon, jumped between worlds, foiled assassination attempts, sleuthed with a great detective and generally helped save the day.

What I say: oh, just reading.

These two goof balls love having their humans around all day. Here they are keeping an eye on my husband while he is in the yard. #dogsoflitsy

In the meantime, I really enjoy getting more reading done, such as picking up the 3rd book out of the Invisible Library Series.

You know, the first time I thought this was the end and then the second time I was doubtful and the third time I'm all... nah. Can't be the end of Alberich, or at least not the end of the problems that Alberich caused.

I'm being bad about adding my reads to Litsy at the moment. I just steamed through rereading the first two books; they're so fun and fast to read, I could probably do them in one sitting if I didn't persist in having work to do...

5/5💚s

So good I finished the book in 3 DAYS! 😱 & now sadly have to wait till Monday to have the next book delivered. Every aspect of the previous book was kicked up a notch, from relationship tension to action to badass bookness & magic. Even so, the plot thickens & the reader is left with even more mystery and suspense at the end of the book.

Monday better get here fast!!!!

How I thought my day would go: haircuts, ice cream, new books

How my day really went: shopping waiting for haircuts, haircuts, ice cream, bookstore #1 no new books, child has accident, go home child changes, see a movie with child, child plays at mall play area, drive across town for dinner, check bookstore #2, one new book & 2 more I‘ll have to order online.

At least they had the 3rd book in a series, the one I really needed!

Time to dig in!

The third book in the series was full of intrigue & action. I really liked that despite that, the author still had consequences from the last book & character arcs for two of the major characters. The action scene at the end was superb, as two masters of language tried to outdo each other.

I love, love, LOVE this series. The perfect blend of science fictiony fantasy magic strangeness, well written, the main character is /lovely/ and the supports have their own things to deal with and don't just exist for the MC. I'm gonna stop babbling nonsensically now but know that this series is A+.

Really happy with this story. The MC is confronted with an old enemy she only barely defeated in the first book in this series. It felt viable and gave us some more insight into the MC‘s thoughts and feelings.

I only realised in this book, third in this series, that the MC is about my age. Maybe that‘s why I like her so much? She has a no-nonsense attitude, with little patience for non-essential conventionalities.
👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

LittleBug Simultaneously though, she has realistic insecurities, caused by life choices, or inevitabilities. Really enjoyed identifying with her☺️ (edited) 4y

It took me a couple tries to get through this book before I had to return it to the library. I‘m still not sure how I feel about the main female character after three books. However, I definitely like the main male characters, the world, and the plot enough to continue reading the series.

Whilst on probation for her exploits in the previous book, Irene and assistant, Kai, join with the other Librarians in thwarting Alberich‘s plan to destroy the Library.

Again all the ingredients were here for an engrossing read, but it all fell a little short for me. I‘m still not entirely sure why this series doesn‘t work for me. Rating: 3 ⭐️

That... was less final than I remembered in terms of Alberich. Also, i'm tired of the will-they-won't-they between Irene, Vale and Kai. Either be different and make it a threesome, or dismiss the romance altogether and skip the stereotyped blah.

It's not that i don't enjoy the books -- i do. But I'm tired of the love triangle.

And just like that, done with Book 3! I really love this series. I‘m glad we got some answers and some new questions. The conclusion was a bit fast, and the beginning a bit slow. But everything else was just right.

“There was a werewolf down here with her. No, make that AT LEAST ONE werewolf. She might as well assume the worst. And her kidnappers might be lurking here as well. Or possibly her kidnappers were werewolves. It was like one of those Venn diagrams where all the possible Bad Things intersected to provide a Worse Possible Thing at the center.”

Another solid entry to this series. I love Irene, Kai, and The Library. I'm lukewarm on Vale though, he's just okay to me. My only issue was that I thought this was the end of the series, so when I got to the end I was seriously confused. It looks like the next one comes out this month and it's set in the 1920s!

P.S. And now that I've finished the book, the title makes me chuckle. 😂

Took a little bit to remember all the pertinent details from the first two books, but when I did this was fun. Not the strongest in the series and I felt like a lot was left hanging. I will read the next book when it comes out and hope it doesn't feel as incomplete as this. But overall a fun read and Susan Duerden does a good job (preferred her narration of the two previous books, but I think that was more content). Will continue reading.

Three books in and I still don't know how I feel about this series. I like the premise... I didn't like this one very much. It felt like I was reading a promising first draft, but it shouldn't have been published without a lot of tightening of both plot and style.

‘They are defined either by narrative or by reality. They don‘t go beyond that. The only person who can ever set bounds on you should be yourself.‘
It all sounded perfectly reasonable, but from Irene‘s perspective, the fact that Alberich was a murderer and traitor suggested there were flaws in his philosophy.

‘Is anyone up there?‘ came a yell in French from downstairs.
The natural human response was to shout, ‘No!‘ Which said something about humanity.

It's possible I'd have been happier with this if it had been the last book I read on vacation instead of the the first. It's still fun, though, and if you liked the first two, you'll probably like this one, too.

No Spoilers I promise. You know a book is going to continue to pull you into a trance of excitement and enjoyment when they start with something like this. The third book in the Invisible Library series continues the exploits of our favorite Library Secret Agents as they try to stop yet another evil plot. Can't wait for the next installment.
