Into the worm's hole
I have never cried so much for a series in all my life. Okay well maybe Clockwork Princess, I balled like a baby at the end of that book. But this book gives Clockwork Princess a run for its money. I couldn't make it like ten pages without bursting into tears. I'm a very emotional person what can I say? So if you've read the blurb you now know that Ethan killed himself to save everyone he loves. No one wanted him to go, but it was something he had to do. When he wakes up in the Otherworld he thinks he's still alive and that it's all just a bad dream of some sort. But when he goes downstairs he finds his mom in the kitchen instead of Amma. It hits him that he really is dead. He's happy to be back with his mom, I mean who wouldn't be happy to be back with their dead mother? He sends a message to Lena to let her know that he's okay, well as okay as he can be. Then he finds out that he can go back among the living. His mom doesn't want him to do it because he could die, again, but a little more permanently this time though. So he sets out to find the page in The Caster Chronicles were it tells of his death so he can burn it and come home. He needs Lena's help though, and he contacts her and she comes to his rescue. One part of this book is from Lena's point of view. I liked reading it from her view. I think the authors should write the series over, but this time from Lena's point of view. In Lena's part of the book she has received a message from Ethan telling her that she need the Book of Moons. The only problem with that is Abraham Ravenwood has the book in his possession. No one likes the idea of going up against Abraham in fight because he is powerful. They do it anyways. Although Macon doesn't know, because Lena knows that he would never let her do this. John Breed is going to trade himself for the Book of Moons. Since I really haven't told you about John Breed let me tell you about him. He is one bad ass Caster/Incubus. He's a hybrid that Abraham created to take over the world. He can take powers from other Casters and use them as his own. One accidental touch and he has their gifts. He's also Liv's boyfriend. Remember Liv is the British girl from the second book. The one that has feelings for Ethan, or had feelings for Ethan. Link winds up killing Abraham with a pair of garden shears. They get the book to Ethan so he can trade it with the Gate Keeper so he can get into the Far Keep so he can burn his page. This is going to be hard since the evil guy Angelus wants Ethan dead or as his slave. Ethan gets his page back and burns it and I'm sitting there like:
“Full circle. The beginning and the end.”
"I pulled open Amma's drawer and grabbed a #2 pencil. I held it up to show my dad. He grinned. 'Started out sharp, and then she sharpened it.'"
"'You know I smell like frosting on a cupcake. Why don't you come on over here, and I'll show you just how sweet I can be?' She wiggled her long pink nails like claws. Link walked over to John, who was leaning against a weeping angel that was split right down the middle. 'Just callin' it like I see it, Babe. And I can smell you just fine from here.'"
