Genevieve Cogman [ kindle ] The Mortal Word – eBook, Kindle and Epub Read

Genevieve Cogman Ù 5 characters

En the warring dragons and Fae As a neutral party Librarian spy Irene is summoned to investigate She must head to a version of 1890s Paris with her assistant Kai and her detective friend Vale where these talks are fracturing Here she must get to the bottom of the attack – before either the peace negotiations. Why am I so Meh about this seriesThere 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 travel to are also interesting I idea of the library and it s ambiguous involvement in each book s crisis I still have no idea if it is a mostly good or bad place Each individual book plot They are all different and episodic in natureButI want to feel attached to the characters at book five and it just isn t happening for meI think part of the issue is that it does feel episodic in nature and so this could be any three people each new book I don t feel like I have emotions for the characters carrying over from the prior books Then there is the feeling that we don t every really dig any deeper into the characters beyond the surface layer For example we find out something about Irene s parents in book two that I m dying for her to have a conversation with them about But now it is book 5 and even though they are physically close to Irene there is still no contact with them in this book I feel like there are multiple things like this just thrown in and then never resolvedThe premise is a good one Irene is the Library s investigator to a secret delegation trying to work out a peace treaty between Dragon s and the Fae when one of the Dragon s is killed Vale is also tapped to be in the mix because of his great detective skills and Kai finds a way to be close by as well I love that the team is all back together for this There is a murder to be solved and a peace conference to save Even Silver gets to make an appearance at the Fae representation in the investigationsThe thing I liked the most in this book was probably the Fae Princess and how her architype worked I enjoy how the Fae interact in the world like the Fairy Tales they are pulled out of The Dragon culture is interesting but it isn t nearly as playful and fun as any of the Fae characters that we have seenAt least the who will win Irene for the time being is answered in this book and I appreciate that even if I would have liked a smidge depth to that as wellOverall I enjoy the series and it is an easy read but I m just looking for a little connection to the characters

The Mortal Word

A corrupt countessA spy in dangerAnd an assassin at largeThe fifth title in Genevieve Cogman's witty and wonderful Invisible Library series The Mortal Word is a rollicking literary adventurePeace talks are always tricky especially when a key diplomat gets stabbed This rudely interrupts a top secret summit betwe. 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 could you ask forAfter five books it was time that Irene and Kai actually got it together even though most of the action was left to the reader s imagination that s okay we have plenty The whole book was action packed and as well as dragons there were fae I have a soft spot for Silver and kind of liked the Princess as wellSo it was all good fun and a very entertaining read Roll on book sixThanks Netgalley for my opportunity to read and review this book

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. Real Rating 475 of fiveUnexpected That s the best word I can use for this book The resolution wasn t entirely unexpected but the path we re led down to get to it was The murder was unexpected the murderer was unexpected the terrible trials of the heroes were largely unexpectedJust how I like my series fictionAt the end of book four some serious developments take place that are central to the plot and climax of this book If you haven t read The Lost Plot stop reading and come back when you haveSo after Kai leaves Irene s tutelage and establishes a less romantically suicky relationship with her we re treated to another of Author Cogman s exciting escapade scenes to bring us to this story s reality She starts off by wishing she still had Kai s backup for those tight corners she routinely ends up in Then back to B 659 London to assist Peregrine Vale whose rigid spurning in The Lost Plot of her determined sexual advances surprised me in no small degree and Kai on a minor but intriguing case that s uickly and completely forgotten when Bradamant of all people shows up to demand Irene s presence among the Senior Librarians immediatelyAnd that s the starting bell for ten rounds of boxing shadow boxing and mixed martial arts cage match to the death political magical and ethical battling Irene manipulates events in her inimitable why is it always me style She gets Vale and Kai to the scene of a horrible crime despite the Librarians unenthusiastic responses She uses her position as a leader to lead everyone involved whether her senior or another race s ruler into a multiverse changing brand new idea of diplomacy She acts in short like Woodrow Wilson at Versailles in 1919The uestion is has she birthed a United Nations or a League of Nations

    I feel almost bad giving The Mortal Word a higher rating than I've given many books of superior substance depth and literary merit It's fluff It's about kickass librarians with magical powers fairies with archetypes that even they get trapped
