by Garth Nix.
I haven’t done a book review in a while. But I had to review this book. Why?
Best ending of a series I have ever read.
I mean that. Late at night, as I was reading the final few pages, I started crying. Not because I was sad, but because the ending was so exhaustively good that I had to just cry.
The seven books leading up to this were up and down, though in whole, quite brilliant. I had no idea how it was going to end, really. I assumed the good guy would win, which is a pretty good assumption.
But then how it ended was so delicious, so surprising, and yet it was the only thing that worked, and I loved, loved, loved it.
Someone asked me if this had a better ending than Harry Potter. I said yes.
I could gush about it all day.
So if you want a good series, start with Mister Monday and work your way down. I’ve been reading this series for years now (it took a while for Mr. Nix to write them all), but it was worth it because the ending was amazing.
