Strange and Ever After - Waiting on Wednesday

Today I'm doing a Waiting on Wednesday, which is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine. I'm talking about the 3rd and final book in a series I've just started. Something Strange and Deadly is a book I read in June, and I really enjoyed it. I'm actually planning to read the second with Ellen of Pottermore Books and then Strange and Ever After will be out shortly thereafter. This is the final book in the series, so beware of spoilers for the first few books!

In the conclusion to the trilogy that Publishers Weekly called “a roaring—and addictive—gothic world,” Eleanor Fitt must control her growing power, face her feelings for Daniel, and confront the evil necromancer Marcus...all before it’s too late.

He took her brother, he took her mother, and now, Marcus has taken her good friend Jie. With more determination than ever to bring this sinister man to justice, Eleanor heads to the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt in hopes of ending this nightmare. But in addition to her increasingly tense relationships with Daniel, Joseph, and her demon, Oliver, Eleanor must also deal with her former friend, Allison, who has curiously entangled herself in Eleanor’s mission.

With the rising dead chomping at her every move and Jie’s life hanging in the balance, Eleanor is convinced that her black magic will see her through to the bitter end. But there will be a price. Though she and the Spirit Hunters have weathered every battle thus far, there will be consequences to suffer this time—the effects of which will be irreversible. And when it’s over, only some will be able to live a strange and ever after.

Susan Dennard will leave readers breathless and forever changed in the concluding pages of this riveting ride.

So, there is a series conclusion I am definitely looking forward to coming up this month! Let me know what some upcoming books are that you're looking forward to.

From the paper world,


  1. YES! Great pick! I was just about to respond to your email about doing a readalong soon and I was totally going to suggest this series. I haven't read the first two books but I am planning to read them in August when I do a Historical Fantasy theme!

    Want to do a readalong for this one the weekend of the 16th of August? I know it comes out in a few weeks so if you want to read it sooner I'll understand. Let me know!

    1. There's actually a Booktuber (Ellen from Pottermore Books) who wanted to read the second and third one with me this month. If you want to read either of those now you can, and if not we can pick a book for August!
