First of all, this title gives me anxiety. Pages(and books in general) weren't meant to burn. Second of all, can we just appreciate what a lovely shade of green this book is? It makes my Slytherin heart happy.
Basically this book improved greatly upon the last one, which should have been impossible, because book two of the Invisible Library series was fantastic. This series is like cheese. It only gets better with age.
This review will be shorter than normal, since The Burning Page is the third book in a series, and there's not much I can talk about without seriously spoiling it. Trust me, you do NOT want to be spoiled.
- DAMNIT ALBERICH. DIE ALREADY. He's a perfect villain. Like, the type of villain that anyone of us could become, and that's what makes him scary.
- Kai is such a sad, violent, smart cinamonroll. I love him.
- The ending of the book was INSANE. I could not stop reading. I stayed up all night finishing it.
- The writing is very, very good. Me likey.
- I'm not sure how this series is going to continue. Like, there's two more books coming, but surely Alberich can't escape AGAIN.
- HOW. IS THE SERIES GOING TO BE STRECHED INTO ANOTHER TWO BOOKS. One more books, I could see that happening. But two?? I'm a little doubtful. We will see.
- ZAYANNA. That is all I will say.
Thank you to New American Library publishing (ROC) for the review copy! The Burning Page(The Invisible Library #3) goes on sale 1/10/17.
Librarian spy Irene has professional standards to maintain. Standards that absolutely do not include making hasty, unplanned escapes through a burning besieged building. But when the gateway back to your headquarters dramatically malfunctions, one must improvise. And after fleeing a version of Revolutionary France astride a dragon (also known as her assistant, Kai), Irene soon discovers she's not the only one affected. Gates back to the Library are malfunctioning across a multitude of worlds, creating general havoc. She and Kai are tasked with a mission to St Petersburg's Winter Palace, to retrieve a book which will help restore order.
However, such plans rarely survive first contact with the enemy - particularly when the enemy is the traitor Alberich. A nightmare figure bent on the Library's destruction, Alberich gives Irene a tainted 'join me or die' job offer. Meanwhile, Irene's old friend Vale has been damaged by exposure to Chaotic forces and she has no idea how to save him. When another figure from her past appears, begging for help, Irene has to take a good hard look at her priorities. And of course try to save the Library from absolute annihilation. Saving herself would be a bonus.AND THAT WAS MY REVIEW OF THE BURNING PAGE BY GENEVIVE COGMAN! HAVE YOU READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS YET? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE BURNING PAGE? TELL ME BELOW!
