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.

With supernatural forces, epic romance, and a mysterious Egyptian city, Eleanor and her team are set for an adventure they will never forget.
It has been a tumultuous time for Eleanor Fitt since life as she knew it in Philadelphia came abruptly to an end. Although the Spirit-Hunters Joseph, Jie, and Daniel have helped her survive, Eleanor has lost just about everything.

And now, Jie is missing taken by the evil necromancer Marcus. Eleanor is determined not only to get her back but to finally end this nightmare. To do so, she must navigate the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt amid the rising Dead, her unresolved feelings for Daniel, and her volatile relationships with Joseph and Oliver, her demon. And it won't be easy. Because Allison, her friend from Philadelphia, has tagged along, becoming strangely entangled in Eleanor's mission.

It will take all of Eleanor's powers of black magic, and all of Daniel's and Joseph's trust, to succeed. But there will be a price.

Did this book killed me? YES. Okay, not literally, but it broke my heart so badly that I thought I would die BOOHOO. Yeah, I’m a drama queen heheheh. ANYWAY, to be honest, I started off this whole series doubting it. I mean, I didn’t really like any stories that happened before the 20th century so obviously I was thinking twice about reading this series. BUT THEN it was by Susan Dennard and there were zombies and people dying, and I knew I had to read it.

I never thought I would get emotionally attached to the characters, but I did. Eleanor Fitt was someone I relate to because she never did fit in with the society. She was different, and I think that’s what I absolutely love about her. This last installment in the Something Strange and Deadly series showed us a different side to her, the dark side, and I was curious as to how the whole trilogy would end.

BUT DAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMN IT. DAMN IT. DAMN THE ENDING. I wanted it to be different, but it’s not and I was so damn heartbroken and even though I know it was for the best, I kept wishing there was another book to reverse that ending HAHAHA.

Frankly though, I am really in love with this series.

Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

It took me quite awhile to write this review, because I had to wrap my head around the whole story. I mean, this book is inteeeeense. Very very intense. These past few days, I’ve been really interested in science fiction, so when I heard that A Thousand Pieces of You had a bit of that sci-fi feeling, I immediately picked up the book and started reading. The story line made me all the more excited. Alternate universes, different versions of us and the fact that for every action that we made, it split into infinite amount of other possibilities, leading to […]

Amazing was an understatement when it comes to Beyond The Red. I honestly wasn’t expecting to really love it, because I guess the books I’ve read for the past few weeks didn’t really impress me. But Beyond The Red definitely did, and I would be totally lying if I did not say that Eros is now my current book boyfriend. He’s mine now, okay? No touching. The book started off with us getting to know more about Eros, which of course, was the point of time when I fell in love with him, seeing the way he acted towards the little ones and […]

WOW. OKAY. MINDBLOWN. I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to write this review, so I’m just going to be spitting out random thoughts about this book, because, hey, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO REVIEW THIS. Firstly, you should probably know that I love stories about creating people, humans. Clones. Yes, I’m weird like that, but don’t worry though, I’ll never do such an inhumane thing like that HAHA. I just find them really fascinating. I mean, I don’t like playing God, but I just find it fascinating how there’s so much more to humans than just bones and muscles. […]

I have this thing about books with aliens-I absolutely ADORE them. I looove aliens, be it ET-version, or the hot sexy as hell human-like version. Either way, I am fascinated by them, so of course when I stumbled upon Alienated in the Overdrive section, I knew I had to read it. Also, there was the part about student exchange programs, which naturally, called to me. Okay, I shall list out the negative reasons first, because there are so few of them. But that did not mean that I dislike this book, because I LOOOOVE IT. To be honest, there was […]
