The Second Journey of Agatha Heterodyne Volume 3: The Incorruptible Library by Kaja Foglio and Phil Foglio

The continuing adventures of Agatha! The plot has picked up to such a pace that it opens in mid-adventure, and ends there too, albeit on a cliff-hanger.

It occurs mostly underground at Paris, as Agatha looks for a way to help Mechanicsburg, with some Gil.

It includes a traitor Smoke Knight, two characters betrothed to each other but certain that the other loves someone else, a long-suffering brother, a startling discovery about the Storm King, Agatha's worry about something her mother did to her, Gil and Tarvek near Mechanicsburg, many traps, the weasel, and more.
