Publisher's Summary

] After being commissioned to find a rare book, Librarian Irene and her assistant, Kai, head to Prohibition-era New York and are thrust into the middle of a political fight with dragons, mobsters, and Fae.
In a 1920s-esque New York, Prohibition is in force; fedoras, flapper dresses, and tommy guns are in fashion: and intrigue is afoot. Intrepid Librarians Irene and Kai find themselves caught in the middle of a dragon political contest. It seems a young Librarian has become tangled in this conflict, and if they can't extricate him, there could be serious repercussions for the mysterious Library. And, as the balance of power across mighty factions hangs in the balance, this could even trigger war.
Irene and Kai are locked in a race against time (and dragons) to procure a rare book. They'll face gangsters, blackmail, and the Library's own Internal Affairs department. And if it doesn't end well, it could have dire consequences on Irene's job. And, incidentally, on her life....

A good entry in a great series

The Invisible Library is one of the series I eagerly await releases on. I've been hooked since the first, and immediately put aside anything I'm listening to when another hits my library.

The Lost Plot was no different, and I immediately fell back into the world I loved. The story opens with Irene making one of her usual daring heists, but almost immediately jumps right to the main storyline. Before you know it, Kai and Irene are headed to Prohibition-Era New York City.

Given the change of scenery, this book has a more distinctive feel than past entries in that it feels a bit more modern than fantastical (relatively-speaking in any case). It's different, but not jarring, especially because we still have plenty of Fai and Dragons to contend with. In fact, it was cool to see how those supernatural forces mixed with a relatively modern world.

I was slightly disappointed that "The Lost Plot" seemed to actually lose the main plot of the series however. I guess you could look at this entry as a stand-alone side-story that details the adventures of a Librarian, but doesn't have a whole lot of immediate effect on the overall story arc. What little effect the events of this book could have had on the overarching story seems to be somewhat nullified in the end.

Still a great listen though, if you enjoy it for what it is: relatively stand-alone.

As always, Susan Duerden did an excellent job narrating.

Good story, if you can get through the narration

Must be some kind of trend in narration- annoying whispering breathiness... but it’s the dreadful American accent that’s distracting. Still, story is good if you’ve been following the series.

Great story about the Library, shame about the dramatic narrator

Great story but the narration was difficult at times. Every sentence was finished with dramatic inflection whether it needed it or not, as if she was reading sound bites rather than a story. It was a little grating at times because it felt like she had not read he book so did not know where to put emphasis.

The story was enjoyable and it was good to hear more about the dragon world in this one. I always like the Library books and find the series a good way to escape so please keep writing!
