Description

The second title in Genevieve Cogman’s The Invisible Library series, The Masked City is a wonderful read for all those who enjoyed Mr Penumbra’s 24 hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan, Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair or Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London.

Librarian-spy Irene is working undercover in an alternative London when her assistant Kai goes missing. She discovers he’s been kidnapped by the fae faction and the repercussions could be fatal. Not just for Kai, but for whole worlds.

Kai’s dragon heritage means he has powerful allies, but also powerful enemies in the form of the fae. With this act of aggression, the fae are determined to trigger a war between their people – and the forces of order and chaos themselves.

Irene’s mission to save Kai and avert Armageddon will take her to a dark, alternate Venice where it’s always Carnival. Here Irene will be forced to blackmail, fast talk, and fight. Or face death.

The Masked City contains bonus extra content – secrets from the Library! Continue the bookish magic with The Burning Page.

Publisher Review

The Masked City is a joy to read and Cogman makes it look effortless. She knows her characters, understands how to pace the action and the world she has built is intricate and compelling. Lovers of literature will adore this universe . . . You simply can't get more fun than this * SciFiNow * A book very much in the humorous and satirical tradition of Discworld * Guardian *
