    I love the Invisible Library series so much. Such a unique universe! I enjoyed how The Mortal Word was more of a "traditional" detective novel than previous books, but have a serious bone to pick about the fade to black between Irene and a certain handsome someone. Check out my full...

    THE MORTAL WORD is the fifth book in The Invisible Library series. I've read every single book in the series and I could not wait to read this book. Irene's job is to steal rare books from different worlds for the Invisible Library. She loves her job, the adventures, the books. After ...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. THE MORTAL WORD, the fifth installment in the Invisible Library series, is as delightful as the rest of the series. Mixing fantasy with historical locales with a murder mystery continues to be a successful combination of elements to showc...

    This series is so fun! The author manages to keep it fresh and exciting, with an ever expanding world(s). I?m not at all biased because the main character is a librarian. Really, I?m not. ...

    I was so excited when I got approved for the ARC of this book, especially because I was rejected same time last year for The Lost Plot and it felt like an affirmation that I?m now a capable blogger ??? And I?m so glad to have read this book because it has all the wonderful...

    While each book contains a clever, suspenseful mystery this series is best read in the order of its release. Complex story arcs, relationships and incredible world building are built upon in each title. A couple of things you need to know. Worlds ruled by or where Dragons dwell tend...

    The first time I read an Invisible Library novel I enjoyed the first book, but bounced off the second. It took me a while to come back to the series, but when book #5, The Mortal Word was given to me to review, I was able to dive into book 2 again and absolutely binged books 2-5. The f...

    Originally published at Reading Reality In this version of the multiverse the Library serves to provide the balance between the fae worlds of chaos and the dragon worlds of order. Humans don?t do well at either extreme, and it?s the Library?s function to guard and preserve the...

    I look forward to every book in this series and have not been disappointed yet! I love the idea of a library between worlds and magic doors which open to different libraries in different places and times. Plus the most important characters are a librarian and a dragon. What more could ...

    Being away from this world for so long, did make it hard to jump back in. I had to find the groove of it again, but once I did I had a fantastic time. It has a good mystery to it with a conclusion I honestly did not see coming. We of course have more mentions of our big bad (is he go...

    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 signi...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for offering me an advanced copy in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. If you haven't picked up The Invisible Library, stop reading RIGHT NOW and go pick it up. It's a clever world of time-travel-adjacent adventures with dragons an...

    Any time a new book in this series is announced, there should be an international holiday of celebration and reading. What a treat. Fans of Investigator Vale will be happy to know that he is back and center-stage. When an assassination takes place at a fae-dragon peace conference, h...

    Why am I so Meh about this series? There are a lot of things that I like about this series. -Irene, Vale and Kia are all pretty likable characters who have a decent number of flaws to make them interesting - The various worlds with different levels of order and chaos we tra...

    I really wanted to like this one more. I liked it well enough but to be honest it was rather bland. it was so bland that a week later I still have no real opinion on it. I remember the main points but everything else is a blur which makes it a mediocre book in my opinion at best. Still...
