The King of Crows

The King of Crows by Libba Bray is the conclusion to the Diviners series.

After an explosion that took one of their own and condemned the Diviners as outcasts, the battle against the King of Crows has officially begun and a battle it will be.

Evie and the rest of the Diviners are separated and on the run from the Shadow Men, the Klan and ghosts. They must dodge trouble and find each other before the King of Crows and Jake Marlowe’s plans are complete. But making their way to Bountiful will be harder than they think.

Each of the Diviners will face their worst fears and must come to terms with their powers before it is too late.

Oh man, I feel like this is one series where I’m like, “Finally! We’ve reached the end!” I don’t know about anyone else but it’s felt like we’ve waiting a long time and gone on a long, long, journey to get to the end here. Don’t get me wrong, I like the series. But I almost wish that Bray took these monstrous books and split them up a little bit more so that we got them on a more steady release. Now, I understand that there are always extenuating circumstances, etc. but the way these were released made it harder for me to hunger for the story.

All that being said, I’m still a fan of the flapper vibe throughout the book. The characters are fun and dynamic and the story itself appeals to my love of a good ghost story.

We’ve been with these characters through so much, that I worried that we wouldn’t get enough closure at the end of the story, but I think Bray did just enough to satisfy the readers. Yes, questions were left, but that was OK by me.

This one gets 4 stars from me and the series as a whole, gets 3.5.

That’s all for now!
