Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities and along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she's posted to an alternative London.
Their mission: to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it's already been stolen and this London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.
In this chaos-infested world, where the laws of nature bend to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic, Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own. Soon, she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies but failure is not an option with the nature of reality itself is at stake. Irene must be at the top of her game or she'll be off the case - permanently.
The Invisible Library is followed by The Masked City, and six further novels in The Invisible Library series.
