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

i can't b re a t h e. Honestly this series has just caught my heart and hustled its way in to take a firm place on my favourites of all time list. Yes it's messy and imperfect. But it's flawed in such a raw way and the characters are just loveable wretches...I can't evenvennnn. I love Neil. I love his attitude, his vicious need to cling to love, and the way he and Andrew find some peace within each other, something to fight for when the world has only ever left them bloody.

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

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

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 feel

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. This series took me by storm, and I am glad to have ended my year (ehh, it's close enough to say that) with this series.

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

There are no spoilers in this review, for anyone wondering.

I just spent all of Sunday rereading the first two books in the series so I could read the third, that I only recently realized had come out. I always get a little worried going into the end of a series, because sometimes the whole previous story gets ruined by choices made in the last book or episode or movie or whatever.

Well. Not the case here. I don't even know why I worried.

The second book left off on a really intense point, and t

According to GR, over 13,000 people have read this book.

Almost 10,000 of those readers rated the story 5 stars.

The ratings don’t lie.

This story was FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC!

This series destroyed me in the best way possible.

I just love these characters so much and their character development. I could read hundreds of pages of them doing literally nothing. I just found Nora Sakavic's Tumblr with all the answers I needed. I can die in peace now.

FINALLY THE ROMANCE I WAS WAITING FOR! And it was so worth the wait, it was just beautiful.

(view spoiler)
I feel like I just finished a marathon. I took a short break between book 1 and 2, but I read 2 & 3 back to back. These are not short books and book 3 was the most intense of all. It was well worth the effort as this series went immediately into my very exclusive all time favorites shelf.

I'm not going to really review it. One, because there are tons of wonderful reviews for it already. Two, because it's quite impossible to review this book without spoiling the previous two in the series. It'

Honestly, I thought the first two books of this series were lovable trash. They're not particularly well-written and the entire plot concept is kind of absurd. But this one somehow managed to get me to literally actually cry. I'm STILL kind of shocked that this made me cry.

“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.”
“This isn’t about the Ravens. This is about you. This is about everything it took you to get to this point, everything it cost you, and everyone who laughed when you dared to dream of something big and bright. You’re here tonight because you refused to give up and refused to give in. You’re here where they all said you’d never be, and no one can say you haven’t earned the right to play this game.
“All eyes are on you. It’s time to show them what you’re made of. There’s no room for doubt, no room for second guesses, no room for error. This is your night. This is your game. This is your moment. Seize it with everything you’ve got. Pull out all the stops and lay it all on the line. 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.”
