Praise

Praise for The Mortal Word:
 
 “Yet another delightful romp in the style to which her readers have grown accustomed… It’s tense, explosive, full of witty dialogue, and at times laugh-out-loud funny. Chaotic drama and deeply felt emotion combine in ever-increasing stakes, culminating in a tense and revealing standoff.”—Locus
 
“Cogman ably combines sleuthing with politics, magic, and a bit of romance for a satisfying tale.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Genevieve Cogman’s prose in The Mortal Word is characteristically light and witty, and filled with the kind of unexpected literary references one would expect from a book about magical librarians. Even more impressive, however, is Cogman’s ability to craft compelling standalone novels, while still using the developing relationships among her characters to tie the entire Invisible Library series together.”—Bookpage
