In the conclusion to the trilogy that Publishers Weekly called “a roaring—and addictive—gothic world,” Eleanor Fitt must control her growing power, face her feelings for Daniel, and confront the evil necromancer Marcus…all before it’s too late.
He took her brother, he took her mother, and now, Marcus has taken her good friend Jie. With more determination than ever to bring this sinister man to justice, Eleanor heads to the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt in hopes of ending this nightmare. But in addition to her increasingly tense relationships with Daniel, Joseph, and her demon, Oliver, Eleanor must also deal with her former friend, Allison, who has curiously entangled herself in Eleanor’s mission.
With the rising dead chomping at her every move and Jie’s life hanging in the balance, Eleanor is convinced that her black magic will see her through to the bitter end. But there will be a price. Though she and the Spirit Hunters have weathered every battle thus far, there will be consequences to suffer this time—the effects of which will be irreversible. And when it’s over, only some will be able to live a strange and ever after.
Susan Dennard will leave readers breathless and forever changed in the concluding pages of this riveting ride.
Firstly, I think we all know, Susan Dennard is one of my most favorite people on this planet. She’s so amazingly kind, and perfect, and just all around awesome. And I totally fell in love with her writing, and her in a totally not creepy way (and maybe a certain character *coughDanielcough*, but we won’t go down that path right now). It’s so bitter sweet to see this phenomenal series end. And despite the fact Strange and Ever After made me ugly cry, I loved it. It was beautiful. It genuinely was. This trilogy needed an honorable end, and it got one. Susan so perfectly captured the essence of the Spirit Hunters. The character development, was so genuine. As cheesy as it sounds, these books leave you changed. I swear, there were scenes where the magic practically dripped off the pages. Just. Go buy it. It’s amazing. And I’m in no way biased.
Never forget; Aim for the Knees.
