The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman 

The Library (with a capital L) is an entity with doorways to all the alternate worlds run by Librarians who aren’t on a higher mission to save the worlds they visit, but to find unique works of fiction and save them in a place out of time and space.  The more material Librarians bring back to the Library the more the Language (again with a capital L) evolves.  Precise command over the Language allows Librarians to manipulate objects, it’s sort of like magic, but not.

Irene is a new Librarian given her first mission:enter a world that has a chaos problem (naturally Librarians are none too fond of chaos) and find that world’s unique collection of Grimm’s faery tales and bring it back to the Library.  Of course nothing is ever simple when fae, zeppelins, dead again vampires, master detectives and clockwork centipedes are involved.

Those who don’t mind entering a world like, yet unlike our own Victorian London, and think that librarians truly have superpowers (because we do) will enjoy this fantastic adventure.  And the best news?  This is the first in a series and the third was just announced.
