Or the city go up in flamesSuspicions fly thick and fast and Irene soon finds herself in the seedy depths of the Parisian underworld She’s on the trail of a notoriously warlike Fae the Blood Countess However the evidence against the Countess is circumstantial Could the killer be a member of the Library itself 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum there s one thing I can say about The Invisible Library series it s that I can count on the books being consistently solid and entertaining That s why I always look forward to picking up the next installment and that was most definitely the case too with The Mortal WordIn this fifth volume of the series the war between the Fae and Dragon kind is heating up Attempts to broker a peace treaty are jeopardized when a high level dragon is found stabbed to death and naturally the dragons are uick to point the finger at their sworn enemies the Fae Our protagonist the time traveling parallel worlds hopping book stealing Librarian agent Irene Winters is thus tasked to get to the bottom of who committed the murder before the situation can devolve any further Joining Irene on the investigation is also Vale her talented detective friend along with some backup from dragon prince and former Library apprentice KaiMeanwhile the peace talks must go on As a representative of the Library Irene must oversee the meeting with the eye of a neutral mediator as well as ensure that the process goes smoothly However someone is bent on disrupting the talks with poisoning and deadly sabotage attempts causing even trouble for Irene and her team With the stakes so high anything can happen now to tip the fragile balance between Order and Chaos potentially threatening the fate of countless worlds connected to the great interdimensional LibrarySomewhat breaking with tradition this installment does not involve much book stealing or hunting Instead granting Irene one of her long held childhood dreams Genevieve Cogman sends her protagonist sleuthing in an entertaining and wonderfully executed murder mystery plot It was uite a treat to see Irene relish in this role which includes plenty of new responsibilities reuiring her to exercise different talents and skills But it s not all fun and games as our girl learns that with leadership also comes accountability and all the pressures that come along with it Worse her new position plunges her into the complicated world of Library politics and than once Irene is forced to pit her own professional standards against her loyalties and natural instincts to follow ordersBy following a traditional mystery plot however this book also features a conventional storyline as well as a less elaborate and flamboyant setting Compared to The Lost Plot the previous novel which transported readers to a world reminiscent of the American Roaring Twenties complete with fedora wearing tommy gun toting jazz listening gangsters the worlds of The Mortal Word seemed downright tame However Cogman knows balance The areas of character development and relationship dynamics are where this one shines As a Vale fan I was very happy with the prominent part he ended up playing in this novel I was also pleased with the attention given to the bond between Irene and Kai especially given the all the recent challenges they ve been through together I also loved how the story made room for characters like Lord Silver as well as some truly fascinating Fae figures like the countess or the princessAll told this was another exciting and fun filled romp through the myriad worlds of The Invisible Library along with my favorite Librarian spy and I particularly enjoyed the elements of mystery and intrigue that featured so strongly in The Mortal Word The combination of humor adventure and the constant pleasure of not knowing what to expect always makes picking up an installment of this series a special treat Every book is a surprise and I m eager to find out where Genevieve Cogman will take her fans next
