The Burning Page

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!

No smoke without fire...

In the third instalment if Cogman’s series, the threat isn’t only to Irene’s life, but to the library as a whole.

In the third instalment if Cogman’s series, the threat isn’t only to Irene’s life, but to the library as a whole. While Vale has to deal with the consequences of following her into a high-chaos world (called it!) in “The Masked City”, Irene struggles with trying to find out who she still can trust – concerning Librarians, Fae and Dragons likewise. Old acquaintances make their appearance, and some of them come for Irene’s life… I just love Cogman’s characters and the dynamics between them, especially Vale and Lord Silver and their witty banter. But also very generally the way Cogman uses language and has characters reflect language themselves, which happens very much as central part of the plot. (Also, not sure whether I mentioned this in previous reviews, but the book covers and the colour concept are outright amazing.) Without spoiling too much, I want to say that the way the library is threatened is very original and creative. The scenery of the final showdown reminded me a bit of “Alice in Wonderland”, as chaos means there are stories instead of order, which makes place for impossible physics, among other things. Again, like in the previous instalment, Cogman highlights the possibility of friendship between human and Fae, and the result was surprising. In addition, more Librarians, and some of the internal struggles and politics of the Library were introduced, which I found very interesting as well. In case you’re annoyed by the multiple hints at a possible romance between Irene and either Kai or Vale (I’m rooting for Irene and Vale, honestly): the romantic aspect continues to be sidelined in this instalment as well. Except for one or two scenes, that is. Part of the plot might have seemed a bit too obvious, but, in my opinion, that was done purposefully and added to the surprising twist at the end. The book was thrilling and entertaining as usual, although I had mixed feelings about reading about giant spiders right before going to bed. I simply loved the “Burning Page” – probably even more than the previous instalments. Can’t wait to read “The Lost Plot”!

Von Parallelwelt zu Parallelwelt, von einer Kalamität zur nächsten. Ist die Bibliothek noch zu retten? Ein Roman wie ein Adventure Game.

Die spannende dritte Runde!

Auch im dritten Band über die Bibiothekarin Irene und ihren Assistenten Kai, bietet die Autorin eine angenehme Spannung und viel Witz. Die Figuren, welche ich in den vorherigen Bänden schon ins Herz geschlossen habe, geraten auch diesmal in ein großen Abenteuer.
