Description

A mysterious archive. A powerful enemy. And a cunning plan.

Danger is part of the day job for a Librarian spy. So Irene’s hoping for a relaxing weekend. However, her jaunt to Guernsey proves no such thing. Instead of retrieving a rare book, she’s almost assassinated, Kai is poisoned and Vale barely escapes with his life. Then the attacks continue in London – targeting those connected with the Fae-dragon peace treaty.

Irene knows she must stop the plot before the treaty fails. Or someone dies. But when Irene and friends are trapped underground, in a secret archive, things don’t look so good. Then an old enemy demands vengeance, and a shocking secret is revealed. Can Irene really seize victory from chaos?

The Dark Archive is the seventh book in the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman. 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. . .

Publisher Review

Without sacrificing the adventure that is a hallmark of the series, Cogman pulls Irene through a multilevel maze of doubts and paranoia that will have readers jumping at shadows, too. Fans will be delighted to find this series still going strong -- Publishers Weekly Simply a joy to read - deeply atmospheric where it should be, properly exciting when anything's going on as it generally is, and tender too. This is a series that shows absolutely no sign of losing pace, and I'm already impatient for the next -- BlueBookBalloon on The Secret Chapter 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 a fantastic addition to Genevieve Cogman's oeuvre, and paves the way for a deeper exploration of the fantastic world that she has created. -- FantasyBookReview on The Lost Plot Brilliant and so much fun. Skullduggery, Librarians, and dragons - Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series! -- Charles Stross on The Burning Page 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 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
