This first novel in the Invisible Library series caught my attention in the book shop, and was on my wish list for a while until it was purchased for me as a birthday present. The book follows an adventuring librarian - a bit like an Indiana Jones of her profession, sent out into parallel worlds to retrieve books of interdimensional interest.

It’s a really fun story, with a strong point of view character, and a range of secondary characters who are intriguing as well as useful.

The plot is exceptionally paced to keep the reader’s attention - almost feeling like a game of Dungeons and Dragons in some respects - I was not surprised to learn that the author also writes adventures for role-playing games, as that’s very much how the world building, and the twists and turns of the plot, develop.

An enjoyable read, and I suspect I will at some point pick up the second book in the series too and see how things develop.
