What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
When Jack left Eleanor West’s School for Wayward Children she
was carrying the body of her deliciously deranged sister–whom she had recently
murdered in a fit of righteous justice–back to their home on the Moors.
But death in their adopted world isn’t always as permanent as it is here, and when Jack is herself carried back into the school, it becomes clear that something has happened to her. Something terrible. Something of which only the maddest of scientists could conceive. Something only her friends are equipped to help her overcome.
Eleanor West’s “No Quests” rule is about to be broken.
I just had to read this book as soon as it released! And it did not disappoint! I absolutely loved it, and couldn’t give it anything else than a 5 star rating! (First 5 star prediction is an actual 5 star book!)
I love that we got to see Jack and Jill again! I think their story so far has been on of my favourites, or maybe Lundy’s story (in an absent dream). Since this one follows characters from a previous book, you really need to read at least Down among the sticks and bones before this one. But to be honest I recommend reading them all before this one, since more characters return from previous books!
I love Seanan McGuire’s writing style! It makes reading/listening to these books so easy! Something I think everyone loves about these books, including me, is the world building! She does it so well, for such short novels. I think if these books were 300 pages longer, I would still love them just as much. Just because of the great world building and amazing writing style.
Another aspect I absolutely love are the characters! They are all so interesting, and I love how they act towards each other.
Currently GoodReads says this series will have five books, so this one would be the last. But I really hope Seanan McGuire will write more books in this world, since there are still so many worlds that can be explored!
I know this review is pretty short, but I just think these books are amazing, and you should read it if you haven’t already!
