"Collecting books can be a dangerous prospect in this fun, time-traveling, fantasy adventure from a spectacular debut author. One thing any Librarian will tell you: the truth is much stranger than fiction... Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, a shadowy organization that collects important works of fiction from all of the different realities. Most recently, she and her enigmatic assistant Kai have been sent to an alternative London. Their mission: Retrieve a particularly dangerous book. The problem: By the time they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions are prepared to fight to the death to find the tome before Irene and Kai do, a problem compounded by the fact that this world is chaos-infested--the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic to run rampant. To make matters worse, Kai is hiding something--secrets that could be just as volatile as the chaos-filled world itself. Now Irene is caught in a puzzling web of deadly danger, conflicting clues, and sinister secret societies. And failure is not an option--because it isn't just Irene's reputation at stake, it's the nature of reality itself.."--… (mer)

Be patient with reader, she gets better. At first I found Susan Deurden's style incredibly irritating and it put me off listening the first time I tried. She begins by putting emphasis on every noun. After a while i got into the plot and stopped hearing it unless I focused on it, and by the end of the book she had stopped it. I have just bought the next one, which she also reads so hopefully she will not go back to that style.

The story is engrossing and good fun, so if you don't have a low irritation threshold, I recommend it. ( )

A hidden library whose librarians enter different worlds to retrieve books. The idea of a Universal library attracted me to this book, but the writing is so appalling, crass, contrived and unsubtle that it had me cringing on every page. I persisted out of sheer tenacity, but it is by far and away the worst book I have read for a long time. I was going to include examples of how bad the writing is, but there are so many and life is just too short. ( )

How can I NOT enjoy a book with the title 'The Invisible Library'? Book is confusing. Felt like I had walked into the middle of a movie.

Well now, that was a lovely diversion ( )

I really liked this book. It was a fast read for me. But in the end I'm somewhat disappointed. I kind of expected from the premise that I would LOVE this book, which is the reason for the disappointment. I think my problem is that I love character driven books and I would say that even though the characters aren't one-dimensional or anything, this felt more like a short introduction and I kind of wanted more. There was a lot happening and I guess the plot was more important to the book, but I always prefer character driven books to plot driven ones. Definitely checking out the next book too, though. I did give 4 stars, though, cause I think that that's what I would've thought without my expectations.

*****
Edit 11.8.2016: I came upon a review that summed up what was bothering me about this book. So, I ended up taking one star away and most likely won't go to the next book. I won't be listing the reasons here, rather here is the link. ( )

Thank you to everyone who helped with this book. Thank you to my agent, Lucienne Diver, who is awesome and whom I still can't quite believe I got as an agent, and my editor, Bella Pagan, who is fantastic and turned this into a much better book than it was originally.

Thank you to all my readers, supporters, and friends, including but not limited to Beth, Jeanne, April, Anne, Phyllis, Nora, Walter, Em, Jennifer, Stuart, Elaine, Lisa, Hazel, and Noelle. You are all cool and awesome.

And thank you, now and always, to my parents.

Irene passed the mop across the stone floor in smooth, careful strokes, idly admiring the gleam of wet flagstones in the lantern-light.

Somewhere amidst the confusion he (Vale) had found time to rearrange his books, after the disorder Irene had inflicted on them, and neat piles of half-sorted literature sat around his chair like patient children.
Kai sipped his own tea (no milk, no sugar, black and brooding) and watched the two of them.
But the physical world wasn't shaken by a dragon's roar. Reality itself trembled.
Kai frowned and offered her his arm Maybe he really thought she was that badly injured. Or possibly possessiveness was a characteristic of draconian affection. They were supposed to be hoarders, after all. Not so different from Librarians.
