This book contains one of the most powerful endings I’ve ever read. I start with it purely because it hit me like a freight train.
This is a book version of a game of chess. It’s clever, and always many paces ahead of the reader.
The characters we see perspectives from are the ones you will always want ‘just one more chapter with’.
The separation of characters that began in the final chapters of Smoke Thieves continues on in The Demon World. It’s well crafted and would make for powerful tv.
What I found most powerful while reading is that it could have quiet easily been a duology. It has that strength of resolution that sometimes a second book in a trilogy lack. However, much like the games of chess, things were put in place ready for those final moments… and now a painful wait for book three.
