Tomb of Ancients
From the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum comes the final book in the creepy fantasy series.
Fleeing the nightmares of Coldthistle House, Louisa and her friends have taken up in a posh new London residence. But religious zealots from the shepherd’s army are flocking to the city in droves, and ominous warnings are being left on Louisa’s very doorstep.
praise be that I can finally read this and all my questions will be answered . . . hopefully in the way I desire!!
(you bet your gran's sticky purse mints I'm talking about Morningside and Louisa as a ship mkay I have no shame here about that)
ahhhhhhhhhhhhh WE HAVE A COVER AND A BLURB AND I AM READY FOR THIS!!! Also why am I the only one flailing by myself about this book?? COME AND BEHOLD BRILLIANCE, Y'ALL!!!
Update: BLESS YOU AMAZON FOR LETTING ME KNOW T ...more
Another draw for me with this series was the chemistry between Louisa and Mr Morningside in the first two books, which sadly disappeared in Tomb Of Ancients. I know that it was probably wishful thinking on my part though because this series is classed as a gothic horror not a romance but I'm sure I wasn't the only disa ...more
Second. Unexpected romances that I will never complain. I needed them. Haha.
Third. Found friends that became family always make me want to cry grateful tears by the end of the series.
Fourth. My girl Louisa has come so far and I'm so proud of her.
Fifth. A mixture of sadness and awe of how the war went and the cost of not how to win it but how to stop it and to start anew.
Sixth. That epilogue is the balm that I need on my wou ...more
I really did enjoy this one, despite my previous statement for saying that it moved quickly. And it moved very quickly, but I never really felt like anything of note was lost due to the pace. The only thing I think that I miss that the previous books had was the horror aspects? The feeling of mystery and dread that seemed to creep up and dwell around the c ...more

It was a good book! I saw it through to the end. I found the ending satisfying! I just ... didn't find myself rooting for anyone at all.
Louisa is fabulous, as ever, and her companions are perfect. The adventure is perilous but somehow nothing felt truly dangerous or risky for her. Louisa is a fighter and a survivor and I found the theme of sacrifice to be a little off.
This book also had way more body ...more
The pacing of this book was a lot faster than the previous installments but I didn't seem to mind it. There was less fluff and build up. Instaed of slowly going up hill we charged up the mountain full speed.
I enjoyed the wonderful cast of characters that resided at Coldthistle. Lousia tried to leave it behind but it pulled her right back. I also absolutely adored the addition of Dalton Spicer & Fathom.
While this book finishes the trilogy as well as Lo ...more
There were some things that make me hesitant to say 5 though, mainly:
- It was super fastpaced and sometimes I was left having to reread bits becuase... what just happened???
- A riddle at the end of the book still confuses me... but honestly, I'm ba ...more
I am overwhelmed with emotion a harsh and cutting thing. Despite all the up and downs this series had at the beginning, the unsure footfalls, the misleading threads, this book tied them up beautifully and it made me love this series so much more.
Also LORE LORE LORE this series has amazing world building, and the
the illustrations were gorgeous and haunting making the experience come full circle.
It might not be for everyone not everyone is given a chance to fully develop some new characters ...more
Do I regret anything? No.
This book was amazing.
This book series was immaculate.
Everything in this book was well written. This book was not hard to read but also not entirely easy. This book was a page-turner and always kept me interested. Normally I am not one for fantasy kind of books but I love this book and the other books in this series. I loved the asylum series but I think I enjoy this series even more. The ending of this book was great, but ...more
I love the dimension in the characters, I love the push and pull of confidence and defeat that the main character feels with her powers and the horrendous obstacles she must overcome. I love the character building and the relationships that continue to blossom from book to book, as well as the continuous action and intrigue that you feel while ...more
