An evil king is turning ancient tensions into modern strife, using a blend of magic and technology to push Earth and the Otherworld into a mortal competition.

So, here we are with the last book in the Jackaby series. It was both thrilling and bittersweet to read this book. It's always sad when a series end. I would recommend reading this series from the beginning and not read this one without having read the previous three books. In many ways is it one...

I have enjoyed this entire series and I was more than excited to get my greedy hands on an early copy of this book.
As always, Jackaby and the gang are delightful. There's all sorts of banter and magic and baby swoons. Of course there is an epic battle because it's the last book and everything ha...

Initial Impressions 8/29/17: For some reason, this was the least engaging book of the series for me and I felt a little bogged down and that things were going slowly in the middle. I had a hard time picking the book back up because I felt like it wasn't really progressing for a while, but I also...

THE DIRE KING is the conclusion to this Sherlockian series where the sidekick is an absolute hero and being paranormal isn't so very strange.
As with all the books in the JACKABY series, I was absolutely enchanted by THE DIRE KING. The world building always draws me in, and Ritter's brilliant comb...

The ending was great, but I didn't like it as much as previous books in the series.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
Okay, so I fell in love with the Jackaby series after I read the first book earlier this year. It was such a fun, light read that still was a heavy hitter when it came to teaching its readers about life. I loved that I got to dive...

The end is here.
No, really, the end of the world is just around the corner and Jackaby has a house full of supernatural creatures while Abigail attempts to create order amidst the chaos. Much like how these novels seem to go.
All the players are here as well as a few new ones in the conclusion of...

I have loved this series and its characters from the first moment I picked up the first book, and closing the back cover of this copy of The Dire King makes my heart and soul ache with emotion, both happy and sad. Finishing a series is always really difficult for me, and although I have more than...

Omg, my babies. I need a fifth book. And a sixth. And so many more. Perfect ending to the series. Review to come.
This series has easily become one of my favorite series ever. It started out very subtle. A good first book that left me intrigued, a second book that had me so super sold, and a third...

This review was originally posted on the Goldilox and the Three Weres blog.
I can't believe that this is the last Jackaby book. I'm not ready for it to be over. I've adored each book in this series but this one was darker than its predecessors. It was so action-packed and full of twists that I was...
