Summary

The epic conclusion in the mind-blowing supernatural thriller from best-selling author Derek Landy, creator of international sensation Skulduggery Pleasant.

Bigger, meaner, stronger, Amber closes in on her murderous parents as they make one last desperate play for power. Her own last hopes of salvation, however, rest beyond vengeance, beyond the abominable killers - living and dead - that she and Milo will have to face.

For Amber's future lies in her family's past, in the brother and sister she never knew and the horrors beyond imagining that befell them.

Pop Culture Bog Down

As good as this finale is (and don't get me wrong it is good) I feel a lot of the build up within the book is bogged down with too much pop culture references. Which I get is a Derek Kandy "thing", but usually there are either less if them or more subtle in reference. I just felt bombarded with all of them, and it took away from the actual story.

I wish there was more focus on certain aspects and less on others. Hopefully, as with the Skulduggery series, another trilogy might be able to delve deeper into the Milo story as well as the F.O.L.

Still worth a listen and read. Kathryn Griffith's has become one of my favourite narrators and I will be seeking out more of her work.

Not perfect but thats okay!

nothing needs to be said about the narration. griffiths did a brilliant job at making the characters come alive and become lovable (even glenn)

I enjoyed it however I felt the pacing felt rushed at point as well as lots of plot and character developments that happened far too late to make me care.

overall, id recommend it if you want similar (but not the same) style as a skullduggery pleasant book but its definitely the weakest book out of the trilogy which is a shame. (i'll probably pick up the next one if more are written)
