This was quite a different book for me to download, but it was 99p on Amazon and the reviews were positive so I thought it was worth a go. And wow was I impressed. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. There is so much depth, especially with the way that everything ties in together.
Irene, our main character, is a spy for the Library. The Library is pretty much the centre of being; it is a timeless dimension that allows Librarians to travel to different worlds in alternate universes. Irene is assigned a new assistant called Kai for this adventure and they are sent to an alternate London. This London is infected with something called chaos, which means that the laws of nature allow supernatural creatures to take up residence, from mechanical centipedes, vampires and the Fae. There is also the complication of humans and how they have formed factions in this world, and this human interaction almost makes the story believable, until you throw in a vampire and a dragon and you are snapped back to reality.
