The Masked City (The Invisible Library #2)
by Genevieve Cogman


Librarian-spy Irene is working undercover in an alternative London when her assistant Kai goes missing. She discovers he's been kidnapped by the fae faction and the repercussions could be fatal. Not just for Kai, but for whole worlds.

Kai's dragon heritage means he has powerful allies, but also powerful enemies in the form of the fae. With this act of aggression, the fae are determined to trigger a war between their people - and the forces of order and chaos themselves.

Irene's mission to save Kai and avert Armageddon will take her to a dark, alternate Venice where it's always Carnival. Here Irene will be forced to blackmail, fast talk, and fight. Or face death.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Invisible Library , so I had high expectations for this book. Luckily, this book lived up to my expectations! The only complaint I really had was that I wish Kai would have been more present in this book. I wanted to learn more about Kai's personality in this book, but I am now hoping that will be in book three!

The mythology in this book was fantastic! I love everything about the world Genevieve has created. There is just something so captivating about the magic and the people in this world. I could read about this world for the rest of eternity! I also loved the setting of this book. The setting made the book even more enchanting than the previous book. I mean, this book took place in Venice where they were always celebrating carnival. How much cooler can you get? I am hoping the next book will also have a unique setting.

There was plenty of action in this book to keep me hooked! There was never a dull moment! I really enjoyed watching Irene kick some booty. Irene is growing into such a well rounded character. I think she is a great main character for this series. Irene is such strong and caring woman, and I want to be more like her! I am really looking forward to seeing how she continues to grow throughout this series. I am also looking forward to watching her relationships develop with all of the different characters in this series, especially Kai. I totally ship Irene and Kai, but I have a feeling this will be a slow burning relationship and I am totally okay with that. 

Overall, this was an extremely fun and entertaining read. I am dying to get my hands on book three! If you haven't read this series yet, then I definitely recommend you pick it up.
