Neil Josten is out of time. He knew when he came to PSU he wouldn't survive the year, but with his death right around the corner he's got more reasons than ever to live.

Befriending the Foxes was inadvisable. Kissing one is unthinkable. Neil should know better than to get involved with anyone this close to the end, but Andrew's never been the easiest person to walk away fro

so my yearly reread of ATFG is done and now I'm supposed to be sensible and tackle my actual tbr pile for once. 😪 My heart still clings to this series for found-family and for broken kids learning to love and trust and cling on even though they're drowning. And ngl, the mafia parts were brutal and cold and thrilling. I forgot Andrew only says like 9 words the whole book though and it makes me a little sad.

this series is a mess of characters who have attitudes of black ice an

GO NEIL! GO KEVIN! GO ANDREW! GO FOXES! Ahhh, with Kevin I feel like singing Ham's part in Dear Theodosia: "Look at my son! Pride is not the word I'm looking for!" (also with Neil tbh, words can't describe how proud I am of him).

I feel like a proud mom, is that weird? And I know I've said "proud" x1000 times in this short review, but I can't help it, THAT'S HOW I FEEL ABOUT MY FOXES. It is rare when an author makes me care so much about a whole bunch of fic

“Fight because you don't know how to die quietly. Win because you don't know how to lose. This king's ruled long enough—it's time to tear his castle down.”

The King's Men is one of the best books I've read in 2016, and maybe the best conclusion to a series ever - apart from Harry Potter. Nothing beats Harry Potter.

Honestly, though, there are so many amazing series out there. However, only a few of them have an ending that's as amazing, or even more so, as the other books in a series. Loose ends a

I found this on tumblr and it puts words down okay

Do you ever just hurt when you think about all the times Andrew must’ve taken beatings from his mother in Aaron’s stead? And how he almost killed a bunch of guys for being homophobic towards his cousin? How

My mind is blown away.
There is a special kind of rush you get when you are having final book in series in your hands.
It gets even more special when that closure comes after 2 years of waiting.
But this kind of emotional satisfaction I am feeling right now you get only when book is everything you hoped to be and a thousand things more. The King's Men was definitely worth the wait.

Last sentence of The Raven King gave us pretty much a big hint where will the plot of this book go: Neil and his team

I had the thought of rating this book a solid 2-3ish stars when I finished Chapter 1 because despite everything, I just couldn't get into the series. Or so I thought until Chapter Fourteen freaking happened and I freaking bawled like the baby that I am. I honestly didn't realize I care so much for these characters until that one freaking moment, and up to that point- everything that I unconsciously devoured in this entire series hit me.

If any of you watches Why R U The Series, Andrew's "There is no 'this'" is just like Fighter's "I'M JuSt TeAsInG yOU TOr". They make me want to hit my head against the wall, but I still love them fiercely.

THIS. SERIES. HAS. RUINED. ME. I haven't read a series in a long time that I was so emotionally invested like how I was with this one. I honestly wasn't expecting to like this story, let alone be so obsessed with it the way I am now.

Hello. My name is Cupcake and I'm a Foxes addict.

It's confirmed since I legit just power listened to 12 hrs, 33 mins of this book. Despite the so so narration the story itself is so captivating that it almost made it a non-issue. Almost. If I didn't love this series so much I probably wouldn't be so passionate about the narration, but these characters deserved someone phenomenal rather than mediocre.

“Stay,” Andrew said, and leaned down to kiss him.
Time was nothing. Seconds were days, were years, were the breaths that caught between their mouths and the bite of Neil's fingernails against his palms, the scrape of teeth against his lower lip and the warm slide of a tongue against his. He could f

Rereading these books made me appreciate them even more. Especially this last one. These characters are so complex that spending more time with them can only make me love them more.

I could rant for pages about The Foxes and what Nora Sakavic did with these books. On of the things I appreciate most is how she was brave enough to take the triggers and topics that make people squeamish and address them head on. It's not for effect or to add some angst in. She shows how people live the best they ca

OMFG, this was so bloody good!!!

No series has ever had such a satisfying ending. The plot kept getting complex with each book and the character development was amazing. I'm in loveeee with Neil, even if baby boy has the survival instincts of a dodo. Even after all the violence, abuse, kidnap and torture, this guy DOES NOT know when to shut up. Good thing he had Andrew to watch his back. These two were adorable! *as adorable as a maniac with a blade can be*

According to GR, over 24,000 people have read this book.

Almost 18,000 of those readers rated the story 5 stars.

The ratings don’t lie.

I can’t believe how much I enjoyed this series! I took my sweet time with this one because I didn’t want it to end! I’m gonna miss my monsters.

One of the first things I thought of when I started book one was, these characters remind me of the characters from “The Suicide Squad”. A bunch of misfits, marching to the beat of their of craziness but somehow they clicked.

“This,” Neil flicked his finger to indicate the two of them, “isn’t worthless.”
“There is no ‘this’. This is nothing.”
“And I am nothing,” Neil prompted. When Andrew gestured confirmation, Neil said, “And as you’ve always said, you want nothing.”
Andrew stared stone-faced back at him.”
“I hate you,” Andrew said casually. He took a last long drag from his cigarette and flicked it off the roof. “You were supposed to be a side effect of the drugs.”
“I’m not a hallucination,” Neil said, nonplussed.
