THE MASKED CITY By Genevieve Cogman

The Masked City is the second book in the Invisible Library series. You can find my review of the first book, The Invisible Library here. For some inexplicable reason, Genevieve Cogman wrote the first book in the first person and The Masked City in the third person. I prefer this series in the first person. Irene, a secret agent for the Invisible Library, finds herself traveling to an alternate chaos world to try to rescue her kidnapped student, Kai. Kai was taken by the Fae, a race of powerful magicians who delight in chaos and confusion. This alternate world features a Venice that’s perpetually celebrating Carnival. Written for the Young Adult market, these books deliver thrills and adventure and fun. If you’re looking for some light, entertaining reading I recommend the Invisible Library series. A third volume, The Red Page, is schedule for early 2017. GRADE: B

    I have the first book sitting here, from the library, but with two other books underway I’m not sure I’ll get to it before it’s due, and it’s not renewable, as there’s a waiting list. Maybe I’ll try it again later.

      Rick, THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY books are quick reads. They’re nothing special, just light entertaining reading perfect for a cold Winter night.
