YOU GUYYYYS. This is the second time I’ve had to say goodbye to this series. I feel like I was much more emotional reading ACOL this time around because I just had a baby, so you know, hormones and junk. It looks like it will take me about a month to read a book now with this kiddo in my life. At least until he’s older, and I can put him down for longer than 2.5 seconds.

I love this series with all my heart. Something I didn’t mention in my first review was Alucard and Lila’s friendship. I’M OBSESSED. They’re just so good for each other and their banter and sass gives me life.

Anyways, I’ve said it already, and I’ll say it again. If you have not read this series, you need to. It’s too good not to. It’s the kind of series that will keep you thinking about the world(s) and characters for so long after. In the best kind of way.

This series. Are you kidding? One of the most incredible ones I have ever read.

I go back and forth on which character is my favorite. The fact that I can't fully choose says LOADS about the character development and the writing. ...I think I'm leaning towards Alucard though :):)

My sweet Holland. I loved getting to hear some of his back story in this one. My heart is aching for him and all the pain he had to go through in his life.

Lila, Lila, Lila. No idea how it's possible, but she was even more BA in this book than the first two!

Kell and Rhy's brotherly relationship will be something I always remember. Truly enchanting to read about<3

I will be mourning the end of this series for such a long time. I don't even know what to do right now.
