The Untold Story
Return to the world of the Invisible Library for Irene’s most perilous mission yet . . .
Librarian Spy Irene is heading into danger. Not for the first time, but could this be her last? She’s tasked with a terrifyingly dangerous solo mission to eliminate an old enemy, which must be kept secret at all costs. But even more troubling news emerges. Multiple worlds are disappearing – and the Library may have something to do with it.
Determined to uncover the truth behind the vanished worlds, Irene and her friends must descend into the unplumbed depths of the Library. And what they find will change everything they know. This may be Irene’s most dangerous assignment of her hazardous career.
The Untold Story is the unputdownable eighth book in the Invisible Library fantasy series by Genevieve Cogman.

I absolutely loved this . . . flavoured with truly unique mythology and a dash of the eldritch. Such clever, creepy, elaborate world-building and snarky, sexy-smart characters! -- N. K. Jemisin on The Invisible Library 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 Brilliant and so much fun. Skullduggery, Librarians and dragons - Cogman keeps upping the ante on this delightful series! -- Charles Stross on The Burning Page A fantastic addition to Genevieve Cogman's oeuvre, and paves the way for a deeper exploration of the fantastic world that she has created. -- Fantasy Book Review on The Lost Plot 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 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 -- Blue Book Balloon on The Secret Chapter Without sacrificing the adventure that is a hallmark of the series, Cogman pulls Irene through a multi-level 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 on The Dark Archive
