So the series concludes, things are once again complicated but this story is more hopeful than the previous two and honestly I should have just stuck with having read and enjoyed Dragonsbane. There were times when the actions felt a little forced but overall the series ends on a hopeful note and was less grim than the previous two. Characters learn more about themselves and what they're capable of but also people are sometimes terrible to each other.
It wraps up the series and is worth reading if you've read 2 and 3 but if I was to return to the series I think I'd stick with just the first.… (meer)

Jenny is broken from what happened in the last book, John is under sentence of death because of his dealings with the Demon Realm and now he has to fulfil a promise to the Demon Queen to go on a quest and enter a realm that is so far out of his reality that I'm surprised his head didn't almost explode from cognitive dissonance. He basically ends up dealing with an almost real world but worse cyberpunk future for what was then with legends of magic but living in it is a grind.
It's a bleak book, apparently written when the author was in a bleak mood. Thankfully it wasn't the last in the series.… (meer)

With twenty books in the Benjamin January series, patterns begin to emerge. This is another of the nested historical fiction within historical fiction books, set in 1825 France and 1840 USA. I rather prefer the stories that are set entirely in January's present, but the appearance of Ayesha is always welcome.The 1825 story involves a haunting with really Scooby-Doo elements: mysterious messages screwed on walls in chalk and blood, rattling chains and peculiarly solid "ghosts". It's not a supernatural mystery but it has nonetheless remained unsolved until the story picks up again in 1840.… (meer)

I love this book! The historical details are fascinating, the people are believable and sympathetic, and the story is dramatic and exciting. And the love story is very sweet and understated. Altogether an awesome read.
