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.

GOOD LORD. This book almost gave me a freaking heart attack, I swear. I legit thought everything was done with the people on Nil Unlocked, but noooo, Lynne Matson decided to bring them back and put them in more danger. *deep calming* But you know what? Despite everything, this was the best conclusion ever. It was perfect, answered all the unanswered questions and it basically rounded up everything. Also, we get to know Nil. Like, yeah, we really did get to know Nil, and she actually fascinated me, as much as I wanted to despise her. Him. Yeah, whatever HAHA. I […]

Miss Mayhem did not impress me as much as Rebel Belle did, but the ending kinda made up for it, and hence, the three stars. David and Harper are still OTP though. And to be honest, I think that their relationship was what made this book bearable, because everyone else felt disconnected and shady as fuck. That was the main problem with this book – each of the characters felt so disconnected and rushed, making me feel like the author wanted to get this book over and done with quickly. There were no character development whatsoever, and it disappointed me. Half […]

In my opinion, there are some books that do not require a sequel, and one of those books would be To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I honestly love the way it ended, and I think PS I Still Love You kinda ruined it a little bit. We all fell in love with Peter in the first book. He was amazing, and fantastic and I wanted him to be my book boyfriend. But then for some reason, he pissed me off in PS I Still Love You. BUT I still love this book. I have to admit that I […]

This Is Where It Ends kinda took my breath away, and not in a good way. I mean, this book is good. Like, it’s really beautiful and amazing, and it just opened up my eyes to the things that went on around the world. It’s just that I was sobbing, pretty badly and I couldn’t breath and I just wanted to jump into this book and saved everyone. Maybe I was super naive, but I was hoping nobody died. But who was I kidding? This Is Where It Ends is a book about school shooting, within a time span of […]
