Seriously! I completely loved this book. It picks up right after the first, which was honestly refreshing, considering a lot of books have time jumps. Every book that Alexandra Bracken writes I feel like gets better and better. I’m not going to go into details as it’s a sequel. All that I can say is that this book delivered and I recommend reading this duology !

God, I'm not emotional, you're emotional. This was so good. I can't believe an ancient demon and a disaster of a kid and a cat with bat wings gave me enough feelings to wish I could go off and make a contract to take my heart away from me? I don't want it?

The sequel picks up immediately where the first book left off. Prosper Redding finally makes a pact with the fiend Alastor and goes through the portal to Below to rescue his twin sister Prue. Upon entering the world of Below, Prosper must be smart in order to rescue Prue from Alastor’s younger sister Pyra. However, Alastor learns that there is a dark force in his homeland that is eating up all the magic and destroying the world — not only that, but Alastor finds out the fiendish society has chan ...more

I received an e-ARC of The Last Life Of Prince Alastor, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review. So a big thank-you to the people over at Disney Books for the early read!!

A really fun and spooky sequel to an already unforgettable story. We start this book right where the first ended and follow Prosper while he travels to The Third Realm to save his sister. We got even more world building in this second instalment, and I loved being back in this story! The plot was action packed and the c

"What evil can come from a choice made with a pure heart and the best of intentions?"

If you know me, you know it's essentially impossible for me to talk about books without talking about The Darkest Minds. Ergo, it's impossible for me to talk about my favorite authors without bringing up Alexandra Bracken. From dystopian worlds to time travel troubles to middle-grade Halloween-ish adventures, I've never once walked away from a Bracken book without being absolutely and utterly gobsmacked. And, un

Another enjoyable book by Alexandra Bracken. You must read her first book, The Dreadful Tail of Prosper Redding, in order for this one to make any sense. After that, this book blends a lot of fantasy elements (witches, demons, etc) in a fast paced story. It takes place in a few towns placed in Massachusetts which lends some credible backdrop to the story. I look forward to reading more from this author.

While this book had some clever components and sharply funny moments, it was a significant step down from the first book in the series.

So much of what was good about Bracken's first Prosper Redding book was about atmosphere, and the decision to set the second book largely in the demon realm damaged that badly. The setting for this book had some clever moments (the Disney World parody was excellent), but otherwise it felt half-baked and generic.

The plot felt convoluted and meandering at times,

I adore this series so much, and this new book is no different! Though not set in creepy Salem like book one, Prosper goes on a harrowing journey Downstairs to the demon realm to save his sister who was kidnapped by Pyra, Alastor's malfactor sister! While the setting differs greatly from the first book, readers will love with whip-smart dialogue between Prosper and Alastor just as much and possibly even wish they could visit the world of Downstairs themselves, with all its icky, creepy locations ...more

Thank you to NetGalley and Disney Book Group for the E-Arc copy of The Last Life of Prince Alastor.
Alexandra Bracken is a talented writer and storyteller. If you haven't read these books you are missing out. I can honestly say that this one is better than the first one! A very rare thing for a series!

An excellent follow up to Prosper Redding and a satisfying conclusion to the two book series. We learn some more about Alastor and Prosper and Prue and Nell. Everyone grows as characters. There are friendships and lessons. Def recommended to 5th-8th grades and all others interested.

This was a great conclusion to this duology! I’m sad to see the characters go especially Alastair! He was very funny and witty as always!

The Last Life of Prince Alastor concludes the very abbreviated two-book "Prosper Redding" series. The story seems weirdly truncated and I had to repeatedly check to confirm I hadn't somehow missed an installment of the series along the way. I genuinely think the series suffers by having only two volumes, with much of the content from the first half of volume 2 rendered mostly unimportant as a result of plot twists in the latter half of the same volume. Admittedly I did read the two books nearly ...more

I was surprised to enjoy the first Prosper Redding book so much. Unfortunately, this installment suffers from the dreaded Second Book Slump. The pacing is slow and the plot is not particularly intriguing. But the world is extremely well developed - The realm of demons is fascinating!!

Thank you to Netgalley and Disney Book Group for send me an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion

This book was a really fun and satisfying conclusion to the Prosper Redding series. This book picks up immediately after the ending of the first book, with Prosper heading into the Downstairs, with Alastor, to rescue his sister Prue from the queen of the fiends, Pyra. Prosper is immediately swept in the mayhem of the Downstairs, and with the help of old and new friends

Disclaimer - I received a free copy of this eBook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

This one begins exactly where the first volume left off - which puts us straight into the action! (Unless you've read The Dreadful Tale of Proper Redding, this one won't make any sense). Clever and fun, like the first book, this one is also a little spooky. As Alastor and Prosper try to navigate their way through the malefactor's realm to save Prue, we are introduced to a lo

This second book in a series throws the reader immediately into the story's action -- so if you're new to the saga, I recommend you back-up and read the books in order.

Alastor, a "malefactor," is a ruling-class spirit of the demon realm. Among the realm's spirits, "malefactors" are uniquely able to form contracts with humans.

Three hundred years ago, Alastor made a bargain with Honor Redding, a European settler to the New World. When Alastor met Honor, he was an upright and goodly man who simply
