A review by emmyb
The Invisible Library, by Genevieve Cogman
- Plot- or character-driven? Plot
WHY is this book not more popular?? This book is like the love child of The Infernal Devices, A Darker Shade of Magic, and The Atlas Six. It had Victorian London, travel between alternate worlds, a secret society involving a library, books, and magic. It had the type of fae I enjoy--the cunning, evilly seductive, manipulative kind. It had steampunk vibes and a fight/balance between magic and technology. It was also very fast-paced and plot-driven, with twists and turns throughout. All the things I love.
Moderate: Injury/injury detail
Minor: Body horror
