The Lost Plot - The Invisible Library series (Paperback)Genevieve Cogman (author)
An action-packed bookish adventure, The Lost Plot is the fourth title in Genevieve Cogman's witty and wonderful The Invisible Library series.
A covert mission.
A royal demand.
And a race against time.
In a 1920s-esque America, Prohibition is in force, fedoras, flapper dresses and tommy guns are in fashion, and intrigue is afoot. Intrepid Librarians Irene and Kai find themselves caught in the middle of a dragon vs dragon contest. It seems a young librarian has become tangled in this conflict, and if they can't extricate him there could be serious political repercussions for the mysterious Library. And, as the balance of power across mighty factions hangs in the balance, this could even trigger war.
Irene and Kai find themselves trapped in a race against time (and dragons) to procure a rare book. They'll face gangsters, blackmail and fiendish security systems. And if this doesn't end well, it could have dire consequences for Irene's job. And, incidentally, for her life . . .
Continue the literary magic with The Mortal Word. Genevieve is also the author of the Sunday Times bestselling Scarlet - which reimagines the tale of the Scarlet Pimpernel, but with vampires, mages and magic. . .

“Whimsy, humour and an excellent plot. ”
First of all, this is book four of the series. I knew that, but my boyfriend who bought it didn't. However, it stands alone very well, and there are only vague references to the events of the previous books, so I... More
The Invisible Library series is a great read with magic, dragons, fae and books. Original and well written.
