"A professional spy for a mysterious Library that harvests fiction from different realities, Irene faces a series of assassination attempts that threaten to destroy her and everything for which she has worked. Irene is teaching her new assistant the fundamentals of a Librarian's job, and she is finding that training a young Fae is more difficult than she expected. But when they are the targets of kidnapping and assassination attempts, she decides that learning by doing is the only option they have left. . . . In order to protect themselves, Irene and her friends must do what they do best: search for information to defeat the overwhelming threat they face and identify their unseen enemy. To do that, Irene will have to delve deeper into her own history than she ever has before, face an ancient foe, and uncover secrets that will change her life and the course of the Library forever"-

Genevieve Cogman is a freelance author, who has written for several role-playing game companies. She currently works for the NHS in England as a clinical classifications specialist. She is the author of The Invisible Library, The Masked City, The Burning Page, and The Lost Plot.

Irene Winters, librarian, spy, and treaty representative for the recently signed truce in the previous Invisible Library series entry, The Secret Chapter (2018), is having a bad week. She and her lover, the dragon prince Kai, are being hounded by assassins. Irene's new intern, Catherine, niece of the duplicitous Fae Lord Silver, is overly enthusiastic and has an outrageously romantic notion of what it means to be a librarian. The approval for her training came with a warning that no harm must come to the up-and-coming apprentice while Irene attempts the previously believed-to-be-impossible feat of getting a Fae into the Library. Irene's friend Peregrine Vale, the quintessential Victorian private detective in pursuit of a Machiavellian criminal mastermind, has also been targeted. And another dragon, Kai's insufferable older brother, decides to join their investigation despite having no field experience. Old foes who had been thought dead have plans to overturn the treaty and are intent on using Irene to achieve their horrendous purpose. The lightning-fast pace, colorful characters, and a surprising revelation will thrill fantasy fans eager for more of Cogman's Invisible Library adventures. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
