As usual, the Strega-Borgia family can't seem to get a break:
They've just welcomed a newborn boy Strega-Borgia into the world, but before they can give him a name, he's snatched and replaced with a demon baby. Mrs. McLachlan, the super-efficient (and supernatural) nanny is back, safe and sound--but so is the demon Isagoth, and he hasn't forgotten what he wants from the St

My personal opinion on this book would always be seen through a pair of nostalgia goggles. I read this as a young teen, and as a teenager who loved abnormal and scary things I felt this book - the last in the series - was a good mix of abnormal and scary situations and child-friendly fun to end the story on. I have not gone back to it recently, so I have no idea what my impression of it would be reading it as an eighteen-year-old; I might develop a whole new opinion on it, but as of now I still ...more

The Strega-Borgia family is back, along with the collection of odd creatures, demons, and other hilarious characters that fill their lives. This appears to be (possibly?) the last in the Pure Dead series; if it is, the series goes out with a bang as the Strega-Borgias find themselves caught up in a battle between good and evil, featuring the return of the Dark Lord of Hades himself, S'tan, and his diabolical demon henchman, Isagoth. Debi Gliori once again weaves a fantasy that is both intricate ...more

The first half of the book wasn't as fast of a read (I had even set the book aside for a time) but the second half more than made up for it. Given the series has leaned toward magical beings and abilities throughout, it was a nice surprise at how a faith based element played a major part in the resolution of one of the toughest plot lines for this final book. It was fun to read about the Strega-Borgia family adventures.
having finished the series now, I think at the core of the whole thing is a very strong family feeling. the love between the parents, the love of a great-great-great-great-grandmother (cryogenically frozen) for her descendants, the love of siblings for one another, the parents for the children. one big family love fest! with dragons and nessie and a yeti and a crocodile who lives in the moat, and some witches. you know, just a normal scottish-italian family.

OK -- Now I'm liking the series, and this seems to be the last of it.

This was a great and very exciting story, and now that I'm understanding the author's writing style and humor, I definitely liked the book more than the first one I read.

It is incredibly sad that this ends the series. These books are truly unique, very funny, & very enjoyable, & I really want to hear more about the characters.
