Publisher's Summary

Rose Marshall died when she was 16 years old and on her way to her high school prom. She hasn't been resting easy since then - Bobby Cross, the man who killed her, got away clean after running her off the road, and she's not the kind of girl who can let something like that slide. She's been looking for a way to stop him since before they put her body in the ground. 

But things have changed in the twilight world where the spirits of the restless dead continue their "lives". The crossroads have been destroyed, and Bobby's protections are gone. For the first time, it might be possible for Rose to defeat him. 

Not alone, though. She'll need every friend she's managed to make and every favor she's managed to add to her account if she wants to stand a chance...and this may be her last chance to be avenged, since what is Bobby Cross without the crossroads? 

Everything Rose knows is about to change.

A Richer and Richer World

Every time another novel expanding on this world is released, I can’t tear myself away from it. While you could pick up any book in the series and go from there, I’d suggest reading them in order, since the character development over the course of them is the best part.

This series has been fun!

Granted, I've read through "The Incrypid" and "The October Daye" series, so one could say I've been fond of Seanan Mcguire's writing style. I liked this book much more than the second installment in the series, which seemed to push itself a little too hard to forget her Rose's ties with "The Incrypid" series. This one, did a good job remembering what world it was a part of.

A previous review spoke of how the story was "trying to sell an agenda" and "how country music is bad," which is an interesting take on a book series that makes a point of talking about the importance of roads, farmers, corn, cheap diners and all the things that makes America vast and magical. Yes, it also talks about a character being affected due to the Japanese internment camps and how sewed hatred can affect people's lives. If a book is written in the voice of a character, then they are allowed to comment on the difficulties they have lived with or seen in their time; whether it's being poor, hated for loving someone, or murdered by a self absorbed misogynistic guy who thought he deserved more than anyone else.

I suggest the book, but I suggest them somewhat in order. If I could do it over again, I would read the first few "Incrypid" books, read the first two novels from this series, then go back to the "Incrypid" series through the novel "That Ain't Witchcraft." Then I would finish this book off.

Save Your Money

Tried to get through this. The Narrator attempted to make the book work, but it was badly written, poorly put together and the author has an agenda to sell. Overall, it came across as a desperate whine-fest. Every we’re victims, you’re all racist, misogynistic, country music is bad trope was brought out. As I noted on Amazon, I can get this garbage free on the news. I refuse to pay for it. Refund given, thank goodness. I will not buy from this author again.

Too much exposition

I really enjoy Seanan McGuire’s writing. And i have enjoyed this series a lot. But in this one I felt like she was constantly having the main character explaining how everything worked in the afterlife. Clearly important information but there was just so much of it. It got tedious after a while. I still stuck around to the end and really like the characters. But it could have been streamlined considerably.
