An elusive stalker is targeting Marlowe kids - and something unearthly has gotten into its wealthiest student - as the Another series builds up to a fiendish finale. When his billionaire father marries French governess Nicola Vileroy, high society is all abuzz - but Thomas, the most popular student at Marlowe, is just plain high. Ever since his girlfriend Belle dumped him, he's been spending less time with old friends and more time getting wasted at clubs. But after someone slips him a designer drug one night - and his stepmother seems to know way too much about his private life - things really start to get scary. As Thomas's blackouts give way to a sinister voice inside his head, and as news of a vicious hate crime has students on edge, Thomas comes to the sickening realization that Madame Vileroy has involved him in a horrifying supernatural plan. How can he muster the strength and will to stop it? The pulse-quickening climax revisits Jekyll and Hyde as a current-day cautionary tale laced with a heady dose of paranormal intrigue.

Have you read the first two books before this book? Another Faust and Another Pan. Because if you haven’t and you’re about to read this book, DON’T. PUT DOWN THE BOOK AND GO SEARCH FOR THE FIRST TWO BOOKS. Because trust me, you won’t be able to enjoy the book like I did. Another Faust is an introduction. Another Pan is a completely different story that would make you go “HUH, another kid.” THEN Another Jekyll, Another Hyde, it puts both books together and FINALLY they’re connected and viola! It all makes sense.

The first time I read this book, only a few pages in and I’m like “OH. MY. GOD. Now it all makes sense!” Yes, I literally light up like a light bulb HEH. Another Jekyll, Another Hyde is….. you guessed it: The famous Edward and Jekyll. The one where they are the same person with two different personalities, due to an experiment gone wrong. This happened to Thomas though, NO. He did no such experiment. Let’s say that, he took a drug which allows someone else to live in his body. Intriguing? YAS. Throughout the whole book, I could not contain my excitement. This is the END of the series. This is the book where you will see Nicola Vileroy destroyed. I’m not sure about you guys, but I am so HAPPY. Heh. And no, that was not a spoiler. So yeah, I was literally in my seat like, “Oh yeah, so how is she going to die?” But the emotional turmoil you’re gonna feel is like WOAH. Bad things happen. Really bad things happen. And some parts, well, there’s no solution. :/

I know I’m not making sense HAHAHA. But you gotta read the book. Read the series. Read this series, it is totally UNIQUE. And a fresh take from all the other YA books. And I honestly think that this series is underrated. It needs more exposure. So come on, peeeepol, SPREAD. THE. WORD. ABOUT. THEM. FAUST. KIDS.
