Waterstones Says

The sixth installment in Cogman’s deliriously imaginative Invisible Library series proves that the steampunk saga shows no signs of letting up on the fantastical thrills and striking characterisation of its predecessors. Witty, whip-smart dialogue, perfectly paced action and protagonists that you really care about; what’s not to love about The Secret Chapter?  

Irene and Kai have to team up with an unlikely band of misfits to pull off an amazing art heist. Or they must risk the wrath of a dangerous villain, in his secret island lair. . .

As Irene tries to manage a fraught Fae-dragon truce and her overbearing parents, she's given a hot new mission. The world where she grew up is in danger and only one book can save it.

This is held by Mr Nemo, secretive Fae villain and antique dealer, so Irene and Kai travel to his Caribbean retreat to strike a deal. But in return for the book, they must steal a painting from twenty-first-century Vienna. They'll join a team of dragons, Fae gamblers and thieves, so their greatest challenge may be one another. And some will kill to protect this painting, which hides an extraordinary secret from a past age.

In this bookish adventure, a Librarian spy must fall in with a nefarious group to achieve her goals. Imagine Ocean's Eleven meets James Bond with a pinch of magic. This is the sixth novel in Genevieve Cogman's Invisible Library series.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I absolutely loved this . . . flavoured with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate worldbuilding and snarky, sexy-smart characters!' - N. K. Jemisin on The Invisible Library (Book One)

'Irene is a great heroine: fiery, resourceful and no one's fool, she has a wonderfully droll sense of humour - much like the novel itself.' - Guardian on The Masked City (Book Two)

'Brilliant and so much fun. Skullduggery, Librarians, and dragons - Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series!' - Charles Stross on The Burning Page (Book Three)

'Reminiscent of the works of Diana Wynne Jones and Neil Gaiman . . a true treat to read.' - Publishers Weekly on The Invisible Library (Book One)

'Cogman fills a captivating story with animated characters and propels the narrative at a cracking pace, planting perfectly timed plot twists and reversals of fortune along the way.' - Guardian on The Mortal Word (Book Five)
