This is a totally a satisfying conclusion to a series that has taken me to some really dark places. The main character, Evy, has been put through almost every horror you can imagine. She's been raped, murdered, and tortured. She's been experimented on. She's watched her loved ones die. She's even had to pull the trigger, herself. But with her trials have come triumphs. With her suffering has come the kind of personal connections she never thought possible. She has become more than anyone ever be ...more

I have followed Dreg City series since the very beginning. Three years ago, the author decided to go self-published for book #5 since her contract was not continued. Then this year, she released the final book -- which I almost missed out, until I saw a blog post featuring this cover.

I couldn't say much because I always feel sad saying goodbye to characters you enjoy being with, even if only for several hours of your life *sniff*. And I've been with Evy, Wyatt, Marcus, Milo, Kesmet, Phin, and o

*My Thoughts*

The Night Before Dead, by Kelley Meding, is the sixth installment in the Dreg City series. Over the course of this series, Evy Stone has fought for every single minute of her existence, and then some. From waking up 6 months ago after being killed, to surviving so many attempts to her life and to her friends that you have to wonder how anyone can continue without having severe issues with PTSD. If you have read the previous novels, yo

I though this was a satisfying ending for this series and Evy's story. I've enjoyed these characters and this world. The author has said she may visit this world with the other characters in the future and if that does happen I'll definitely read.

I felt like all we did was run from one battle to another through the whole book, it was exhausting and I hate to say it a bit boring. I was actually more interested in the quiet moments between. Evy mothering her teenage werewolves, giving them the love and safe place they needed. Evy and her friends, some great heartfelt moments happened here, moments that caused them to go for what they wanted. I like how this book has brought about the end to the series. While the author says she might write ...more

Over the past half year, Evangeline Stone has died twice, been injured more times than she can count, found love and buried loved ones. Now she has one last battle left to fight - and then she's done, for good. The question is just, how many more lives will this final battle cost?
The elf Brevin offers a dangerous plan to defeat the Fey: he wants to summon three Tainted to aid the Watchtower's forces. Summoned correctly into the right hosts, Brevin assures them they can be controlled and moved to

This was a fitting end to this series. I bought this last book over a month ago, and have been reluctant to read it, knowing this was the end. But it was a perfect way to end the series.

The first 60% was a setup for the final battle with the Fey using the Tainted (i.e., demons). And any slowness with pacing in the beginning is made up for with the battle and oh-so-satisfactory ending.

With so many good side characters (Phineas, Aurora, Marcus and Milo, I really hope Kelly revisits this world!

The final installment of this series and I was holding off for a while on reading it because I have loved this series very much. So I thought it was pretty great up until the final battle/real final battle. When they come face to face finally with the person who has ruined all their lives on many levels … and it ends the way it did that quickly. Not saying it should have dragged out for another thirty chapters, but a little more oomph! I felt it was very anticlimactic. Otherwise, the book was gr ...more

I'm so glad I re-read the 5th book before starting this one because I forgot so many details in the years since the last book came out. This is a great series and Kelly Meding is a great writing. It's full of interesting and exciting plots, likeable characters and action. And this book had all of that. I really enjoyed it. However, I noticed in the last few books that they can be quite depressing. Evy and other characters (poor Milo!) are put through so much heartache that sometimes it is painfu ...more

Great book

This book was a very well written finish to a great series. The relationships had so much caring, all showed multi layers of growth,changing and deepening over the life of the series. Evie got her HEA with Wyatt and a family too! This was a standalone , better read in a series, but good alone too. I highly recommend this entire imaginative series

As sorry as I was to see this series end, I am happy with how everything turned out. Lots of action and for once Evy didn't bear the brunt of the injuries. I'm glad that Evy got the ending that she and Wyatt deserved and I loved the teaser in the author's note about potential stories in the Dreg City world. Bring it on!

I never write reviews but since it has been one of my top favorite series of all time to date, I just had to say, Evy Stone you will be missed. It was a book I ran across in the bookstore by chance and was pulled in as I opened the very first page.

Is this the end ?

I have enjoyed this series. Although one couple has found their HEA there are several other couples that I hope to follow their stories. Fingers crossed.
