Synopsis: Never judge a book by its cover…

Due to her involvement in an unfortunate set of mishaps between the dragons and the Fae, Librarian spy Irene is stuck on probation, doing what should be simple fetch-and-retrieve projects for the mysterious Library. But trouble has a tendency of finding both Irene and her apprentice Kai–a dragon prince–and before they know it, they are entangled in more danger than they can handle…

Irene’s longtime nemesis, Alberich, has once again been making waves across multiple worlds, and this time, his goals are much larger than obtaining a single book or wreaking vengeance upon a single Librarian. He aims to destroy the entire Library–and makes sure Irene goes down with it.

With so much at stake, Irene will need every tool at her disposal to stay alive. But even as she draws her allies close around her, the greatest danger might be lurking from somewhere close–someone she never expected to betray her…

The Burning Page isΒ another fun and exciting addition to this series starring librarian-spy, Irene. While the previous book, The Masked City, unveiled more of Kai’s backstory, this book concentrates more on the background of Irene, which up until now has been quite mysterious, especially in regards to her family. There is also quite a bit more insight into the Library itself which helps in explaining more, how books connect the Library to alternate worlds. While it’s definitely Irene who shines here, as always her loyal apprentice, Kai is by her side. Their friendship is definitely one of the most enjoyable aspects of this story and the simmering sexual tension between them goes up a notch in this book. Vale, the third member of the trio has a more limited role here due him still suffering from the side effects of the high chaos fae world he entered in the previous book. The very best part of this story though is the showdown between Irene and Alberich, who is one of the nastiest villains I’ve ever read. The only criticism I have is that each book in this series seems to start out a little slow, but I’m not sure if it’s just me. Regardless, it never takes me long to become fully immersed in Irene’s adventures. This third installment of The Invisible LibraryΒ is even more action-packed than the first two, with our heroes facing a multitude of dangers including giant spiders and werewolves. This series is just so enjoyable, that if you love urban fantasy and you haven’t tried this yet, you really should. I do suggest though that you read the books in order to get the most enjoyment out of them. There’s at least two more books planned and I can’t wait for the next one to come out!
