A professional spy for a
mysterious Library which harvests fiction from different realities,
Irene faces a series of assassination attempts that threaten to destroy
her and everything she has worked for.
Irene is teaching her new
assistant the fundamentals of a Librarian’s job, and finding that
training a young Fae is more difficult than she expected. But when they
both narrowly avoid getting killed in an assassination attempt, she
decides that learning by doing is the only option they have left –
especially when the assassins keep coming for them, and for Irene’s
other friends as well…
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.
I loved this! I was so excited to have the opportunity to read an early copy of this book and I was not disappointed. I remember thinking that was going to be a fun series with limitless possibilities when I read the first book in this series and seven books in, I believe I was right. This is a series that I would recommend reading in order if at all possible since the character relationships have grown and changed and there are a few ongoing story arcs. Each book has been a lot of fun so you wouldn’t want to miss one anyway!
I received a digital review copy of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley.
