The Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan Review

Title: The Demon's Surrender
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Age Group: Teen/Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy
Series: The Demon's Lexicon, book three
Star Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The bottom line: Full of thrills, sensuality, and action, the third and final volume in The Demon's Lexicon series was beautiful and absolutely heartbreaking--a new favorite!

Nick and Alan are in trouble again--but this time, you get to see the world from Sin's point of view--Sin, princess of the Goblin Market--while she tries to come to terms with dancing for the Market, losing her mother-figure, falling in love--and fighting for her place in the Market--as well as for her life.

What I enjoyed:
-Seeing the world from Sin's point of view--it really felt cool and different
-Nick and Alan
-Sin's evolution throughout the novel
-Alan's, as well
-The gorgeous prose
-The pacing--it was breakneck and I couldn't put it down
-Mae and Jamie
-The constant thrills that the book offered--I really enjoyed it!
-The happy ending
-The way everything tied together so neatly at the end

Anyone who loves fantasy, action, magic, or demons should pick up The Demon's Lexicon series--wonderful! Next on deck: Bluestar's Prophecy by Erin Hunter!
