SO GOOD

I love this series so much. It's so well done. I can't wait to find out what happens in the final book. It's going to be an unbearable wait! And the narrator is fantastic, she really captures each character's personality.

Can't wait til book 4 comes out!

I loved this book! January LaVoy's personification of the characters made this book come alive. It made me laugh, cry, get angry, and cry some more. The history and the acknowledgement of the pains and struggles of immigrant and African Americans was beautifully written. It is sad to know that there were and still exist some Americans with such strong anti-immigrant beliefs. In addition she also wrote about hope and love in a way that I've not seen blended in a novel before. I can't wait until book 4 comes out even though I was expecting this to be a trilogy.

Another part in the series, and it's divine!

Darker than previous books, but equally engaging and good. I was surprised to see few characters killed off, but it made the story that much more dramatic and grand.

Another amazing performance by January LaVoy.

Highly recommended if you liked the previous parts of The Diviners.

Great story however

Why so much sex added in? It felt like author trying to fill quota. In previous books it was just the right amount. Sometimes subtle is so much better. Particularly subtle good when this is supposed to be a young persons novel. Really unnecessary.

Ending sucked!

Characters are great. Each book got better until the end of the third book. Authors note should not give us a morals lesson. Endings are what we remember most. This sucked.

History Horror Lesson

This third entry in the series doesn't disappoint. Fast paced. Great characters, even if there are fewer now. I hope the next one stays in New York because it's one of my favorite characters and I've already lost too many. That's why it's 4 stars instead of 5. January Lavoy makes it all come alive. Even the dead! Please don't make me wait too long for the next installment!

Satisfying story

I only stumbled across this series within the last year and have been obsessed ever since! I will assume you've already read or listened to the first two installments when I review.
The book felt shorter than I was hoping but it still did a great job efficiently telling the story.
Libba Bray never disappoints with her poetic writing that makes it easy to breeze through the book. She tackles some interesting ideas and controversies in a way that doesn't seem pushy. I felt a lot of parallel in the political atmosphere of our country today in the book which made for an interesting dynamic.
LaVoy is one of my favorite narrators as well because she does such a good job putting spirit and soul into the book. She makes it entertaining to listen to and every character has their own voice.
Overall, this is a great book but to be warned, there are quite a few adult situations in this book so maturity is required.

Great story, fantastic narrator

I don't know what to be more impressed by--the variety and richness of all the characters in the story, or January LaVoy's ability to not only capture each one individually, but maintain their personalities throughout this series. You need to start the series from the beginning--it's wonderful, complex and evocative, while also funny and playful. LaVoy's narration is perfect! AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Fantastic storyline. Wonderful performance

I’m loving this series! This installment is packed with political and social conflict, shedding light on topics typically shoved under the rug. While many secrets were uncovered in this book, I find that I am still hungry for more. Libba Bray has sucked me in again!

I especially love the individual and interpersonal development of the diverse set of main characters. Theta has been a favorite of mine since the first Diviners novel, so discovering more from her storyline was an absolute treat.

As for January LaVoy, her performance is outstanding. As a classically-trained singer myself, I’m enjoying every tune she sings. Her voice is gorgeous! I also love her ability to pull of various accents and vocal ranges without coming off her voice too often. She’s just fantastic.
