⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4 Stars)
The Burning Page is the third book in the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman. The story takes place in a fantasy world, or rather, a very large number of them, parallel earths, all connected to the Library at the center. Irene and other Librarians scour the universes for unique books and bring them back to the Library to add them to the greatest book collection ever.
In book three, Irene is helped by Kia, a dragon who can change to human form, and Vale, the world’s greatest detective and rather like Holmes in many ways. Together they hunt for a way to stop Alberich, a madman intent on destroying the library and finding his long lost son. Murderous booby traps, traitors, werewolves in London, authoritarian Russians, venemous spiders and more stand in their way.
It is an imaginative world centered on a great idea: the library. It’s a world for book fans and fantasy fans and library fans. The story is full of action and adventure, a thought-provoking line or two, and a lot of fun as we become immersed in this fantasy world and learn more and more about it. It’s creative and it’s fun!
