The Secret Chapter by Genevieve Cogman is the sixth book in the Invisible Library series.
A very fragile truce has been made between the Dragons and the Fae and somehow Irene and Kai have become the ambassadors of this truce. But when Irene’s home world is in trouble, they put their duties aside to join up with an odd mix of Fae and Dragons for a special heist.
Can Kai and Irene maintain their positions as ambassadors while negotiating with Fae, Dragons, and technology in a high ordered world? And will bargains struck, stick?
Man can Cogman churn these out! And she has a day job too. I enjoy this series a lot. Each book has it’s own incident that Kai and Irene have to deal with, while slowly introducing more long ranging issues to come.
The first two books, I could not put down; I had to finish them right away. The rest, are these lovely little reads that I can pick up and put down and enjoy whenever I want. Some people may think that this is a bad thing but I enjoyed not being pressured to finish. And it’s nice for a change, not having a book deadline; they could keep coming as long as Cogman keeps writing them. It doesn’t feel like the characters are running on a clock. I like having at least one of these series in my back pocket.
One thing I keep waiting for is for Alberich to come back. He’s like Irene’s Moriarty and I just can’t believe that he is done with her. I also missed the Library and Vale in this one. They weren’t as prevalent in the story as they normally are; but I guess that is to be expected.
I did liked the characters introduced in this book and hope they pop up again as the stories continue.
Overall, this was a fun read and I hope they keep coming. This one gets 4 stars from me.
That’s all for now!
