    Another adventure with Irene, Kai, and Vale? Yes, please!! I was extremely excited to receive this ARC ebook from the publisher. I hate waiting for Invisible Library novels from the library because the queue is always long, and for good reason— they are full of action and adventure. Our favorite series characters are assembled to investigate the murder of a dragon advisor during peace negotiations between the dragons and fae. If you haven’t t...

    This is an incredibly enjoyable read that's full of twists, political intrigue, magic, and the complex world and character-building that Cogman has perfected. It's a mystery wrapped up in a historical outfit with dashes of magic and action. It's a mix that's hard to ignore. The signing of a peace treaty between the ever-warring factions of Chaos (Fae) and Order (Dragons) is in the hands of a neutral party (the Library), but the murder of a dragon...

    I received a free netgalley from the publisher. I am in no way obligated to provide a review. My review is completely unbiased. I was very pleased to have received an advanced copy and happy to report Cogman has delivered another awesome fun fantasy with Irene and company. This time Vale is called upon to use his super sleuthing skills to assist Irene in solving a murder that has occurred at Peace Talks taking place between the Dragons and the Fa...

    Could not put it down. This is exactly the mix of mystery, political intrigue, and adventure story led by an ensemble cast of interesting multicultural, multispecies characters that I really enjoy.

    I am a huge fan of this series as well as some of our older young adult teens. This series is the reason why I love being a librarian. Our library has even read the series for our teen book club and they always ask me to sit in and give my take on the story. We even have created some of our own adventures inspired by the Invisible Library series so, we can not wait to put this book on our shelves.The Mortal Word the Fifth Installment of the Invis...

    A bit of preface ... I requested an advance copy of this from the publisher through First to Read, as I had read The Invisible Library in February and liked it. What I did not realize until First to Read notified me I'd been selected was that I'd not yet read three sequels! So I had some catching up to do...Ms. Cogman has matured in her writing and this series has also matured (not always a necessary consequence). I thoroughly enjoyed this book -...

    I’ve just finished The Mortal Word, so I’m still on that post book high, but I honestly think this might be my favorite book in the series! I’m so genuinely excited to hear that book 6-8 are scheduled to be published because I can’t get enough. I was so captivated from the start and every time I had to put the book down, it was a pure joy to return to the world. In the fifth installment of The Invisible Library series, Irene, Kai and Vale...

    As someone who reads a lot of series, I know that by the 5th book, series can either become stale and formulaic or expand the world of the characters. Thankfully, The Mortal Word by Genevieve Cogman falls into the latter category. In this installment, Irene has been called to a neutral world of 19th century Paris, where the Fae and the dragons are coming together to sign a peace treaty, in order to determine who killed a member of the dragon fact...

    Received free from Penguin First to Read, my thoughts are my own.Another great addition to the Library adventure. The dragons and fae are negotiating a peace, but some on both sides wish it not to succeed. When a dragon is murdered, suspicion settles on the fae, and Irene must discover the killer before everything falls apart.The magic behind the order and chaos of dragons and fae is intriguing and dangerous, a source of many conflicts as the mys...

    I really enjoy the world building in Cogman's Invisible Library series. It has all of my bookish catnip: libraries, kick-ass librarians, magic, dragons. Of the series so far, though, this may be my favorite. There's always some mystery to solve, some villain to go up against, in each of the books. This one, however, had more of a whodunit vibe that I really enjoyed. There was more investigating and questioning witnesses to discover the truth, plu...

    I become more infatuated with Irene, Kai, and Vale with every book in this fantastic series! With all the action, near death experiences, and fighting Fae and dragons, The Mortal Word is another fantastic book in the Invisible Library series. I really enjoyed having all of my favorite main characters back together! Hopefully Ms. Cogman will keep writing this series because I love it!Thanks to Penguin's First to Read program for an advanced copy o...

    Our favorite librarian is back in a new adventure! Irene is once again joined by Kai and Vale as this time they travel to an alternative Paris to solve a murder. Nothing comes easy for Irene as she does her best to solve the crime to the satisfaction of the Library, the Dragons, and the Fae and not get herself killed in the process. Another winner in this series that continues to please!
