Nearly a year ago, blinded by grief and betrayal, Sam of Wilds made a desperate decision to follow the Great White into the Dark Woods. Now, he emerges to a world changed. The City of Lockes is a prison. The King has been locked away in the dungeons. The Kingdom of Verania has fallen, and the Dark wizard Myrin sits on the throne. But soon after his return, Sam learns of a resistance fighting in his name, led by a courageous knight, a defiant prince, a pissed-off unicorn, and a half-giant who wants to smash everything in sight.

Sad to see it go, yet it was so full of gems if you pay attention to the context of the story. TJ Klune and Michael Lesley...gods you two have me more than I could have hope for and made this series so full of joy and almost getting people fired at work for laughing so hard. Both of you keep doing what you do so well. Your a wish upon the stars.

This book changes the perspective of how you look at others and is there really a way to get a second chance at love and how far would you go to. The parallels keep you guessing, it bring out romance in a way and perspective that I thought was genuine and honest. As the story unfolds and you learn more about Murmuration it makes sense and it opens up doors in a great way. All I have to say is that I was satisfied with how it ended.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy's perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind. Or so he tells himself.

It's amazing how much banter can go on with two people from two different walks of life, yet everyone see's how strong the chemistry is but they fight it, amazing read.

Once upon a time, in an alleyway in the slums of the City of Lockes, a young and somewhat lonely boy named Sam Haversford turns a group of teenage douchebags into stone completely by accident. Of course, this catches the attention of a higher power, and Sam's pulled from the only world he knows to become an apprentice to the king's wizard, Morgan of Shadows.

Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: He healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian's problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn't content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince's unwanted affections, but he's also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father's past.

I loved this book, listening to it was so good, I loved the story, the family banter and every time the word bastard was used, in a way that only family could make it stick, I want more and I am actually sad I finished it, but the ending was magnificent and the way it should have been, thank you for this story.

Every high school has its rock star. Maybe it's the quarterback, head cheerleader, or the valedictorian - the one student who outshines the rest. The one everyone knows will be successful in the years to come. For Nolan that was a lifetime ago, before he lost his sight, before he even knew what a Leech was. Now, all Nolan wants is to see Caleo survive to fulfill his destiny.

I was thrilled to hear this book, loved the story, it was the best adventure yet, Jason Lovett continued to bring the whole series to life and I am thank full for that. The interactions between Nolan and Jack were some of the best, the story kept you wanting more and my only regret is that it ended, this series is legendary status in the making, and I understand more and more how the outreach towards LGBT youth and having characters that your can have some relation to feeling that your experiences don't go unnoticed and it can bring joy and warm the heart, make you think and feel things about these characters at times you didn't realize you could without connecting to them personally, thank you very much James Crawford.

Every high school has it's social elite; the football players and cheerleaders...you know, the popular crowd. At Butler High, Jack Barely was as close to the top as they came. Captain of the swim team, great hair, and abs that most would die for. However, that was all before the Leeches attacked, taking away everything: his popularity, his house, his grandmother, and even his best friend, Caleo, whom he secretly loved. Now, living in a destroyed world, popularity means nothing as Jack struggles just to keep him and his twin sister, Jillian, alive.
