This version doesn't have the Vintage photos

Any additional comments?

This review is not for the book but for the Audible version. The audible version for previous books in the series came with reference guide containing the photos in the book. This third book is supposed to have over 50 Vintage photos.

I pre-ordered this audible version hoping I would be able to download the photos once it is released. Unfortunately, there is no download option. I contacted customer service and they informed that it doesn't come with this book. The author writes the story using the photos as his inspiration. That is one of the reasons that I liked this series. Without the photos, it is incomplete. If anybody is planning to buy the audible version, be warned and know what you are getting.

A Good Trilogy!

This was a good third book. I enjoyed the story. Kirby Heyborne did a really good job, but I think I still might have preferred the original reader. Thankfully, both were good with the voices. I normally write a review stating how much I dislike voices, but these two readers did quite well. I just might look for books narrated by both. I don't want to give away anything about the ending, but I was just ever so slightly disappointed. Disappointed might be too strong of a word. I think I just wanted something a little more. But, as I often do with a good book, I just continue the story on in my mind until I reach a satisfactory ending for myself. Oh how I wish I was as half as capable as Mr. Riggs of writing such a creative story. I would definitely recommend giving this a listen.

Sad its over.

I loved this book series, I'm sad to have it finish. The way the story was written and told had me on the edge of my seat, tearing up and and smiling.

Great ending. Excited to pick up the next arc. Loved the narrator's ability to uniquely voice some of the characters.

excellent ending

The author really wraps up what he set out to do. All the setup in book one in my opinion gets a satisfactory ending that stays true to the themes.

A bit too long

I found myself losing focus often during the first half. Scenes that could've been wrapped up quickly seemed to be drawn out unnecessarily. Overall, the book was a good ending to the series. I even shed a tear at the end.

Very engaging trilogy!

...even this "final" book was satisfactory! I was engaged until the end and didn't feel like the final a forced conclusion.

Reading all three is a must since the books don't necessarily stand on their own. BUT all three are a GREAT "listen," since I "read" these via Audible.

The reader does a very good job keeping characters in "character".

Recommend highly!

Good story that struggled to end

great ending to the series overall! some fun plot twists. I love the characters all the more now.

the reader showed quite an impressive array of voices. superb!

there were times when the story felt slow or dragging a bit unlike the prior books.

without knowing how many pages were left to read thanks to the audio format, the end seemed right around the corner many times. it got tedious to follow yet another set of mini adventures after a while, though the story was still entertaining. after so many "almost" endings it seemed to wander to a finish rather than climax. I bet if I'd had a physical book in hand it would've been less of an issue.

it felt like a mediocre add-on how the "age forward" problem was explained away at the end. it could have had some foreshadowing or better integration somehow.

overall a good 4 star story but not the 5 stars of the prior books.

Ok story

The book really didn't get started until half way through. It was not as good as the previous two. Sometimes the characters were bland and shouldn't have been. I never bought into the leading characters blossoming love story. There were some characters that were introduced that the author never really wrapped up their storyline. They could have been utilized better in my opinion. I think I had higher hopes. I expected more because the packaging was so intriguing.

a wonderful ending.

I loved it. This book had a great adventure and a wonderful tying up of loose ends. The characters are marvellous, Devil's Acre so real and so beautifully painted in words.
Heyborne's narration is great too with his accents being pretty darn good, if not always quite perfect. I wish there were more, but at the same time am very satisfied with the ending.
For anyone that enjoyed these, I sincerely recommend the Rivers Of London books.

a good end to a cracking trilogy!

We have now listened to the full Peculiar trilogy and this was a satisfying conclusion, if perhaps a little convenient!

It kept me interested.

It got pretty dark in places, but I highly recommend it. The performance made it a lot easier to follow seeing as there were so many characters very to keep track of. Overall a very entertaining audio book.

Fantastic Trilogy<br />

I highly recommend these books.
I absolutely loved them. The characters and story was for me gripping. I hope there are more in this series as the ending of the 3rd book was disappointing. I look forward to another book
