The first installment of an adventure featuring stolen books, secret agents, and forbidden societies - think Doctor Who with librarian spies!
Irene must be at the top of her game, or she'll be off the case - permanently.
Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant, Kai, she's posted to an alternative London. Their mission: to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it's already been stolen. London's underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book.
Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos infested, the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene's new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own. Soon she's up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues, and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality itself is at stake.

could not get past the voice
the narrator had a sing song voice every sentence was red the same..... horrible
did not hear the story ...had to quit listening in the first chapter
I tried several times to listen...thinking I would get use to this monotone...sing song reading...but could not do it.... sorry I missed the book.....
will not buy any other book read by Susan Duerden.... sorry
didn't finish the book... too bad it sounded like something I would like....
isn't there is someone who listens to the narration before it is published?

I couldn't even get into this book because the narrator was so terrible. Her sentences have a sing-song quality that is distracting, and her acting is just awful. It's too bad because it seems like a good book, based on the reviews.
