The third title in Genevieve Cogman's clever and exciting The Invisible Library series, The Burning Page is an action-packed literary adventure!

When it's your job to save the day - where do you start?

Librarian spy Irene has standards to maintain, especially while on probation. And absconding from a mission via a besieged building doesn't look good. But when her escape route home goes up in flames, what's a spy to do? However, it seems Gates back to the Library are malfunctioning across dozens of worlds. Worse still, her nemesis Alberich is responsible - and he plans to annihilate the Library itself.

Irene and assistant Kai are posted to St Petersburg, to help combat this threat. Here Alberich emerges, as Irene tries to save her friend Vale and foil assassination attempts. Then one incredibly dangerous opportunity to save the Library emerges. Saving herself would be a bonus . . .

Irene's adventures feature stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies - think Doctor Who but with librarian spies! Continue the bookish magic with The Lost Plot.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliant and so much fun. Skulduggery, Librarians, and Dragons - Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series! -- Charles Stross
Cogman's writing is fresh, with a rich tonality ranging from the whimsical and witty to the suspenseful . . . the story is buoyed by the fast action scenes, and readers will be fascinated by the ever-growing complexities of Cogman's world * Publishers Weekly *
The Burning Page does not disappoint. It's a fun, adventure-filled romp . . .If you haven't picked up this series and you like magic, adventure, Sherlock Holmes, a dash of steampunk, lots of mystery, and books, then definitely pick up The Invisible Library! If you've read the first two and liked them, you'll certainly enjoy The Burning Page * SFF World *
It's fun. It's packed with chaotic and dramatic adventures and is witty to boot * Speculative Herald *
The author writes with a speed and verve that keeps you on the edge of your seat through a rollicking good adventure . . . The Burning Page is not only hard to put down, it's hard to walk away from * Fantasy Book Review *
The Burning Page is action packed from start to finish, so that even Irene and you the reader hardly get the chance to catch your breath * The Book Plank *
This excellent series has traces of the satire of Terry Pratchett, the breadth of imagination of Jasper Fforde, and the wonderful ability of Neil Gaiman to mix reality and fantasy in one satisfying whole, but make no mistake: it feels in all senses original and engrossing * The Book Bag *
A gripping addition to the mythos Cogman has already built * RT Book Reviews *
The Invisible Library series is tailor-made for bibliophiles . . . It's immensely entertaining, and I continue to love Irene and her third person narrative voice: she's practical, analytical, and competent, and she handles the absurd situations in which she constantly finds herself with aplomb * Fantasy Book Cafe *
