Inhaltsangabe

]

After being commissioned to find a rare book, Librarian Irene and her assistant, Kai, head to Prohibition-era New York and are thrust into the middle of a political fight with dragons, mobsters, and Fae.

In a 1920s-esque New York, Prohibition is in force; fedoras, flapper dresses, and tommy guns are in fashion: and intrigue is afoot. Intrepid Librarians Irene and Kai find themselves caught in the middle of a dragon political contest. It seems a young Librarian has become tangled in this conflict, and if they can't extricate him, there could be serious repercussions for the mysterious Library. And, as the balance of power across mighty factions hangs in the balance, this could even trigger war.

Irene and Kai are locked in a race against time (and dragons) to procure a rare book. They'll face gangsters, blackmail, and the Library's own Internal Affairs department. And if it doesn't end well, it could have dire consequences on Irene's job. And, incidentally, on her life....

Irene to the rescue

I had preordered this book, then had forgotten about it and only realized I hadn't listened to it when the next book (The Mortal Word) was published the other day. So, in order to know what was going on in Kai's and Irene's world, I started listening. I was completely drawn in and finished it in record time.
I was rewarded with a great story set in New York in 1920, and although the story isn't about that specific era, there's enough information in it that you get an impression of the atmosphere back then (think: Al Capone).
Once again, Irene is set a very difficult task with very hard consequences for her future should she fail. Of course she does her level best to save the reputation of the library, and the world she visits, but she can't win it all.

Susan Duerden's narration was great as always, and I look forward to listening to the next instalment.
