Read The Dire King (Jackaby, #4) Online Free - The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times best-selling series the Chicago Tribune called “Sherlock Holmes crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer” sends the eccentric detective and his indispensible assistant into the heart of a war between magical worlds.
The fate of the world is in the hands of detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook. 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. Jackaby and Abigail are caught in the middle as they continue to solve the daily mysteries of New Fiddleham, New England — like who’s created the rend between the worlds, how to close it, and why zombies are appearing around. At the same time, the romance between Abigail and the shape-shifting police detective Charlie Cane deepens, and Jackaby’s resistance to his feelings for 926 Augur Lane’s ghostly lady, Jenny, begins to give way. Before the four can think about their own futures, they will have to defeat an evil that wants to destroy the future altogether.
The epic conclusion to the New York Times best-selling Jackaby series features sly humor and a quirky cast of unforgettable characters as they face off against their most dangerous, bone-chilling foe ever.

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...

The Jackaby series has completely crept its way into my heart at this point. Looking back, it is so bizarre to me how disappointed I was with the first book. The three books since then have been such a journey. My heart is broken but is also… full. I have no words for my love of this cast, of thi...

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...

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...

War changes things.
I'm not sure what it was about this one. Up until, literally, the last 3 pages, this was a 1 star read. It's a lot of build up and plodding through details and information. I didn't find any of the fight scenes interesting or compelling nor was I dazzled by the bad guys and the...

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...

"In the heart of hate is nothing dear.
The spear grips the hand that grips the spear.
Temper the armor, steady the shield.
The weapon to fear is the one that you wield,
for a Kingdom of Blood is a desolate thing,
a dire crown for a dire king."
The Dire King by William Ritter is the fourth and final...
