A corrupt countess. A spy in danger. And an assassin at large.

The fifth title in Genevieve Cogman's witty and wonderful Invisible Library series, The Mortal Word is a sparkling bookish adventure.

Peace talks are always tricky... especially when a key diplomat gets stabbed. This murder rudely interrupts a top-secret summit between the warring dragons and Fae, so Librarian-spy Irene is summoned to investigate. In a version of 1890s Paris, Irene and her detective friend Vale must track down the killer - before either the peace negotiations or the city go up in flames.

Accusations fly thick and fast. Irene soon finds herself in the seedy depths of the Parisian underworld on the trail of a notoriously warlike Fae, the Blood Countess. However, the evidence against the Countess is circumstantial. Could the assassin - or assassins - be closer than anyone suspects?

Genevieve Cogman started on Tolkien and Sherlock Holmes at an early age, and has never looked back. But on a perhaps more prosaic note, she has an MSc in Statistics with Medical Applications and has wielded this in an assortment of jobs: clinical coder, data analyst and classifications specialist. Although The Invisible Library was her debut novel, she previously worked as a freelance roleplaying game writer. She is also the author of The Masked City, The Burning Page and The Lost Plot, all in The Invisible Library series. Genevieve Cogman's hobbies include patchwork, beading, knitting and gaming, and she lives in the north of England.


Reminiscent of the works of Diana Wynne Jones and Neil Gaiman . . a true treat to read -- <b><i>Publishers Weekly </i>on <i>The Invisible Library</i> (Book One)</b> Brilliant and so much fun. Skullduggery, Librarians, and Dragons - Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series! -- <b>Charles Stross on <i>The Burning Page</i> (Book Three)</b> Irene is a great heroine: fiery, resourceful and no one's fool, she has a wonderfully droll sense of humour - much like the novel itself -- <b><i>Guardian </i>on <i>The Masked City</i> (Book Two)</b> I absolutely loved this . . . flavoured with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate worldbuilding and snarky, sexy-smart characters! -- <b>N. K. Jemisin on <i>The Invisible Library </i>(Book One)</b> Cogman fills a captivating story with animated characters and propels the narrative at a cracking pace, planting perfectly timed plot twists and reversals of fortune along the way -- <b><i>Guardian </i>on <i>The Mortal Word</i></b>
