Summary

In Carry On, Simon Snow and his friends realised that everything they thought they understood about the world might be wrong. And in Wayward Son, they wondered whether everything they understood about themselves might be wrong. 

In Any Way the Wind Blows, Simon and Baz and Penelope and Agatha have to decide how to move forward. 

For Simon, that means deciding whether he still wants to be part of the World of Mages – and if he doesn't, what does that mean for his relationship with Baz? Meanwhile, Baz is bouncing between two family crises and not finding any time to talk to anyone about his newfound vampire knowledge. Penelope would love to help, but she's smuggled an American Normal into London, and now she isn't sure what to do with him. And Agatha? Well, Agatha Wellbelove has had enough

Any Way the Wind Blows takes the gang back to England, back to Watford and back to their families for their longest and most emotionally wrenching adventure yet. 

This audiobook is a finale. It tells secrets and answers questions and lays ghosts to rest. 

Carry On was conceived as a book about Chosen One stories; Any Way the Wind Blows is an ending about endings. About catharsis and closure, and how we choose to move on from the traumas and triumphs that try to define us.

absolutely loved it!

What a fantastic ending to the trilogy! So well written, I loved how everything played out! I enjoyed every minute of it, couldn't recommend it more. I loved the narration, Euan did a fantastic job with all the different characters and accents.

Simon Snow is a disaster human being but that's ok

Made me cry, laugh and squeal at least twice, 10/10 would recommend to a random person in a book shop

Lovely book & Euan Morton still fantastic

Highly, highly recommend the audiobook - it's so great that Morton is back a third time, in lots of ways he does now embody the characters and it's so great to be able to follow them through his performance into this book. The book is funny, sweet and intimate - and he makes these moments all really sing. He's less good at the female characters, for obvious reasons, but Simon and Baz are the stars and he does a fantastic job of both.

The story is less focused than Carry On, and even Wayward Son - but is definitely the kind of thing you want to read if you've loved these characters in earlier books. I really enjoyed it.

I love it, it's one of the best books about magic

Finally everything is almost on their places, I'm happy with the story and where it led us. I was listening 2 days in the row. All good, but I need to know what in the end happened with his magic, and did they fixed it?
