Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Invisible Library

The Invisible Library - Genevieve Cogman

Well, that was fun.  The closest I can come is a combination of Thursday Next and Atticus O'Sullivan, or maybe Kate Daniels, with a touch of Harry Potter.  I was unsure about the story until the scene with the carriage and the Thames; after that I was invested.  Intrigued, and after finishing I'm definitely interested in more.

 

This is the author's first novel and I can see an attempt at humour that I don't think she quite mastered, and perhaps the story might have been a bit tighter overall, but ultimately it was a strong first go.  I look forward to reading the next one.
