Cantrell’s third book in the Demons of Saltmarch series is faster, grittier, and more intense than the first two. In this installment, our main character is Anne—Holly’s somewhat jaded, tough-exterior friend (or ex-friend, if we’re being honest).

Well I didn't enjoy the concluding book as much as the last one, but I don't think that's the author's fault. The writing was still superb and action-packed. The main problem for me is just that she went a different direction than what I was wanting, so that's just a personal preference issue.

Anyway, book three of the trilogy sees the continued terror of Legion, who is now manifesting in the real world in addition to Saltmarch in the form of crazy, slow, flesh-eating corpses. Yes. It's a zombie
