Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly Trilogy #3) (Paperback)
Discover a “roaring-and addictive-gothic world” (Publishers Weekly) in the explosive conclusion of the Something Strange and Deadly trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Susan Dennard—now with a gorgeous new cover.
It has been a tumultuous time for Eleanor Fitt since life as she knew it in Philadelphia came to an abrupt end. Although the Spirit-Hunters—Joseph, Jie, and Daniel—have helped her survive, Eleanor has lost almost everything.
And now, Jie has been taken by the evil necromancer Marcus. Eleanor is determined not only to get Jie back but to finally end this nightmare. To do so, she must navigate the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt amid the rising Dead, her unresolved feelings for Daniel, and her volatile relationships with Joseph and with Oliver, her demon. But it won't be easy. Because Allison, her friend from Philadelphia, has tagged along, becoming strangely entangled in Eleanor's mission.
Susan Dennard is a writer turned marine biologist turned writer again. The Something Strange and Deadly trilogy is her debut. Among the traits she shares with her heroine Eleanor are a weakness for Shakespeare quotes, a healthy appetite for baked goods, and an insatiable curiosity. Sadly, Susan does not get to wear a corset or wave a parasol on a daily basis.
