In 1986, humanity experienced the Reaping - a nationwide slaughter of six-year-old children by their parents - one of the country's most horrific tragedies. From that day forward, the world would never trust another cryptid. Now, Delilah Marlow and a rogue group of cryptids are on the run. One morning, Delilah wakes up with dried blood all over her hands. Though she has no memory of it, she obviously went somewhere - and possibly killed someone - in her sleep. More killings follow, and there is something connecting her victims - perhaps something as dangerous as another Reaping.

A wonderful finale to the trilogy, the ending was the one that needed to happen, though not the one that everyone will necessarily want to read.

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift, and into Black London. In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt.

Amazing story, female narrator below average

A great continuation of story from the first book with one heck of an ending , the only downside was the female narrator. While she does the job fine enough, the emphasis that she puts many of the narrative bits sounds like a bad William Shatner impersonator. That being said, it’s not irritating enough to not enjoy the third and final book in the trilogy.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town's ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove - or prove - the woman's story.

It needed Kristen Bell again as the narrator, but the story was amazing. I can only hope that there will be a third book. I need more Veronica, Logan, Keith, and all the other characters in my life.
