"Collecting books can be a dangerous prospect in this fun, time-traveling, fantasy adventure from a spectacular debut author. One thing any Librarian will tell you: the truth is much stranger than fiction... Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, a shadowy organization that collects important works of fiction from all of the different realities. Most recently, she and her enigmatic assistant Kai have been sent to an alternative London. Their mission: Retrieve a particularly dangerous book. The problem: By the time they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions are prepared to fight to the death to find the tome before Irene and Kai do, a problem compounded by the fact that this world is chaos-infested--the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic to run rampant. To make matters worse, Kai is hiding something--secrets that could be just as volatile as the chaos-filled world itself. Now Irene is caught in a puzzling web of deadly danger, conflicting clues, and sinister secret societies. And failure is not an option--because it isn't just Irene's reputation at stake, it's the nature of reality itself.."--… (mais)

Well now, that was a lovely diversion ( )

I really liked this book. It was a fast read for me. But in the end I'm somewhat disappointed. I kind of expected from the premise that I would LOVE this book, which is the reason for the disappointment. I think my problem is that I love character driven books and I would say that even though the characters aren't one-dimensional or anything, this felt more like a short introduction and I kind of wanted more. There was a lot happening and I guess the plot was more important to the book, but I always prefer character driven books to plot driven ones. Definitely checking out the next book too, though. I did give 4 stars, though, cause I think that that's what I would've thought without my expectations.

*****
Edit 11.8.2016: I came upon a review that summed up what was bothering me about this book. So, I ended up taking one star away and most likely won't go to the next book. I won't be listing the reasons here, rather here is the link. ( )

I started reading this at the beginning of October, but kept getting distracted by other books. I finally made some headway on it during my week in Hawaii, and I ended up loving it. It’s funny and much weirder than the unassuming cover implies.

The main character is capable, no-nonsense and charming when she tries to hide her insecurities and seem more put-together than she truly is.

She works in a secret library that exists between worlds, and goes out on acquisition missions to save important books. In this case, that means running into elves, vampires and werewolves, while teaming up with an analog of Sherlock Holmes and fighting the occasional steampunk mecha.

This is the first of six books in the series (so far), and I’m definitely going to pick up the rest. ( )

Delightful little romp. I loved this world and the general idea. ( )

Three and a half stars. The beginning takes some getting through, and the magic system isn't well explained at first. The story ended up being exciting, though, and the magic was a lot easier to understand in practice. Overall, it was highly entertaining and I'll happily pick up the sequel. ( )

Somewhere amidst the confusion he (Vale) had found time to rearrange his books, after the disorder Irene had inflicted on them, and neat piles of half-sorted literature sat around his chair like patient children.
Kai sipped his own tea (no milk, no sugar, black and brooding) and watched the two of them.
But the physical world wasn't shaken by a dragon's roar. Reality itself trembled.
Kai frowned and offered her his arm Maybe he really thought she was that badly injured. Or possibly possessiveness was a characteristic of draconian affection. They were supposed to be hoarders, after all. Not so different from Librarians.
