Let me tell you how I cried like a baby. And it wasn't for the first big death scene. It was for the end, the most magnificent thing I think I've ever read. Oh my God, I swear if I would have been in public, someone would have thought my mom died. I knew some big things were coming. I knew it was going to wrap up, being the last book of the series. I also knew to tell myself not to act like I just lost my best friend. And yet, that's exactly how I took this one. I read Zoey and her stories from the beginning. I happened to see this crazy cool looking cover on Netgalley, and requested it. And yay, I got my hands on Monster in My Closet. This gave me Maurice. Who is the ultimate best friend, that wonderful little closet monster. Maurice and Zoey have been together since the beginning. You'll have to read that one to understand that. And we met Riley, Aggie, Bruce, Sara, Darius, Kam, Iris, Andrew, Milo, Howard. I mean there's a lot of awesome characters introduced in here. Then we got Pooka in my Pantry. I was already hooked after book one, so I immediately requested it on Netgalley the day it was put on there. There we met Silas. HA! I can't say too much. In Fairies in my Fireplace, this is the first big whammy I got. I still remember how much I cried like a baby. I also remember how much this book made me love the series so much that it became a must have. Golem in my Glovebox gave me Gris. And we get Zoey's mom. Demons in my Driveway brought the zombie apocalypse, literally, and introduced us to Shadow Man. Bernice and Art are official character now. And even though it took a big tole on her, Zoey saved the world, again.
The bad guys are back, except it's just one. And he's the mother of scary, because his biggest goal is to kill every last Aegis, which is only Zoey and her mom. And though there's all the characters that Zoey saved over time, willing to help her, it's really hard when no one but her can see him. After everything that's happened, you would think Zoey could get a break, but this one is maybe the darkest of the books. He's stealing kids, he's stalking Zoey, and no one can see him but her. Zoey has become the best heroine one could ask for in a book. She's grown so much, she's changed a good bit, and she's learned. And best yet, she's gunna make sure everyone makes it out alive, even if it means sacrificing herself.
We've followed this series to this mark. The writing is flawless, magnificent, brilliant. I actually caught on to the messages Zoey was getting, BUT I was NOT prepared for THAT ending. I had a suspicion on one part, but I lost a little piece of my heart at the end. I also cried happy tears with the end ending. After all the bad, sometimes there really needs to be a good. :) And I loved Maurice's little silly song at the end. I am so glad I took a chance on a book I wasn't sure about in the beginning. I'm thrilled that the publisher loved me enough- probably all the messages I sent them about this series- to let me read them all! I know that this is the end of the series, but I am saying every prayer under the sun that this author finds a way to continue some kind of spin off with this. These characters, the world building, and the history of each character and myth is just too good to let go! I will seriously miss so many of these characters! An AMAZING BITTERSWEET MAGICALLY DELICIOUS 5 PAWS!!!
