Publisher's Summary

An action-packed literary adventure! The Burning Page is the third title in Genevieve Cogman's clever and exciting The Invisible Library series. 

When it's your job to save the day—where do you start? 

Librarian spy Irene has standards to maintain, especially while on probation. And absconding from a mission via a besieged building doesn't look good. But when her escape route home goes up in flames, what's a spy to do? However, it seems gates back to the Library are malfunctioning across dozens of worlds. Worse still, her nemesis Alberich is responsible—and he plans to annihilate the Library itself. 

Irene and assistant Kai are posted to St Petersburg to help combat this threat. Here Alberich emerges, as Irene tries to save her friend Vale and foil assassination attempts. Then one incredibly dangerous opportunity to save the Library emerges. Saving herself would be a bonus.... 

Irene's adventures feature stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies—think Doctor Who but with librarian spies! Continue the bookish magic with The Lost Plot.

Great adventure yet again!

The Burning Page is book 3 in The Invisible Library series and it did not disappoint. We see the Library under attack by rogue and mortal enemy Librarian, Albrich and Irene struggling with her duty to the Library and her duty to her friends. Testing morals, dealing with betrayals and struggling to survive all encompass this adventure. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves time travel, mysteries and different kinds of magic.

Audio performance was great as usual by Ms. Atherton. I love that her male voices do not sound like a girl trying to sound like a guy. She does a great job with her accents as well.

Another great book

First I cannot imagine another reader. She does male and female voices so wonderfully. I book 1, I liked the characters. But now I am fully vested. They are developed wonderfully and the foreshadowing makes me what to keep reading.

a lot going on

I wouldn't multitask while this one plays unless you like repeating chapters. Well worth it though.

Brilliant story line and great narrater

Absolutely brilliant series, I'm really enjoying the fast pace and all the characters. It's so exciting. I'm so glad there are a few more books to go. I think it'll be one of those series I'll miss when it's ended.

Loved it!

This series would make a great dramatic film or box set. The excellent narration from Kristin does help with the imagination along with the descriptive and well defined writing by Genevieve.
Thank you both.

I do love these books

Although I have to say I struggle with the narrator who I feel detracts considerably. She’s not fluent and some of her voices for characters are very odd. I feel the books would be so much better if they had a different narrator or you actually read the paper version as opposed to listening to them.

The stories themselves are a great romp!

Absolutely Brilliant

A bit slow to start as per usual, but once it gets going it REALLY gets going! I have so many theories!!! Everytime I finish a book in this series I immediately want to get the next one, and I'm currently having to force myself to wait the seven days until I get my next month's credit.
