The main character, Irene is a professional spy for the Library, a shady organization that collects important books from different time periods. She was born into this job, and has done her share of perilous assignments, but this new assignment is like nothing she's ever done before.
Her supervisor has given her a newer recruit named Kai to help with this mission. They've been charged with the retrieval of a dangerous book. In addition, it's in alternate London, which means it's chaos infested! Enter werewolves, vampires and other mystical creatures. To make matters worse, the book is already missing when they arrive!
Irene finds there is a lot more at stake than what she first imagined.
I was extremely excited to read and review this book! Young adult fantasy is one of my favorite genres of books to read. The story was interesting but it took a bit getting into for me. It took me until about chapter three to fully understand what was going on in the book. So, yes it was good, but I wish the beginning was explained a bit better and the main character was a lot more developed.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion. I rate this book as 3 stars.
