Review: The Invisible Library

The Invisible Library The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks to Berkley Publishing Group, and NetGalley for approving the free e-book of The Invisible Library, by Genevieve Cogman. The following is my honest review.

This is the second time I have sit down to review "The Invisible Library." What is the hold up? Why is it so difficult? If I were on the phone telling a friend about this novel - without spoiling it for her - I would stumble over my words, stop and start. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I will read the entire series.

People who know and love libraries, is a librarian, or knows a librarian well, will at least like "The Invisible Library." Many agree that books and the library are magic. Words are powerful, and can change the course of a life, and history.

I do not read a lot of fantasy. Tolkien spoiled me at an early age. The Invisible Library is unique, powerful and masterfully written. The characters are interesting and (hee hee) multi-dimensional.

This is a fun read, with splashes of Steampunk. I must know what happens to Irene and Kai in the future. Genevieve Cogman has a new fan.

Sorry for the choppy review - I am crazy about this book, it is hard to say all without spoilers. That is a no no to me. I will recommend this series to our library system.
