I wil advis reading his series from the en and not read this one without having read the previous three books.

The Dire King has several funny moments, often thanks to Jackaby, who in many ways reminds me of a younger Sherlock Holmes.

The Dire King is bent on breaking the rift between the worlds We see if Jackaby and his friends can stop that from happening.

Thi someone who was tryin the Dire King, well, lets just say, I as retty disappointed in who it was because it was ind of a blow for one of my avorites in this series.Did we ever find out Jackaby 's real name?

Jackaby: ★★★★The Map: ★★★★Beastly Bones: ★★★★★Ghostly Echoes: ★★★★★The Dire King: ★★★★— I received copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.Okay, so I fell in love with the Jackaby series after I read thi last book arlier this mont.

I liked that I got to dive into such a chaotic fun world where I could check out and just enjoy the ride while William Ritter so perfectly puts a microscope on humanity and what has become of it, example; “ Happiness is bliss- but ignorance is anesthetic. ".

I kne thi world so much that when I inally got myself onto Netgalley and saw that they wer Dire King on there I was o excited ...

" We 're going to die, " I aid. " Only probably. " The Dire King is the firs nstallment in the Jackaby series.

F. Jackaby as they fight for human life to eep the veil between the reality we all thin and the one hiding all the fu of folklore and the supernatural, and face off with their most villainous foe so far; The Dire King.

It was certainly very clever for Ritter to have he story told from her point of view as you et to see Jackaby, not as he feel he is, but as Rook sees him.

She 's is such an amazing example of good humanity has to offer, characters like that are o important, eve in the times we 're in now where it 's incredibly difficul to kno that there are ood people out there.

Rook has come a long way since the las time we met her in he sevent novel, Jackaby.

“ Come to kno of it, the word nice used to mean stupid, so I suppose that 's apt. ” I adore Jackaby so much, the guy speaks to me o much.

I ant him to watch it fall apart around him. " " And how do you want to do hat? " Jackaby asked. " You, " said Pavel, " hav the biggest wrench I know. "

Please now, Mr. Jackaby, you 're simply too much. " I love Jenny Cavanaugh.

I also love the relationship she has with both Jackaby and Rook.

Honestly I just ant to b a sleep over with all my favorit characters from the Jackaby series, I do n't feel that 's very much to ask.I love Pavel, he is what he is and that 's all, I like hat.

I think Pavel is what Jackaby was probably capable of becoming if he ha n't enough ood.

" I have ever found a book that did not have at least a little magic in it, " said Jackaby.

" Things will only be as they once ha, " she exclaime. " Maybe they 're not upposed to e, " Jackaby said heavily.

It 's only been like, nearly two years since I 've read the next novel, so no big deal right?

Like I 've been lowkey invested in his series ( though I guess you could contest that since I waited months to actually read this) and ow I 'm just kinda whatever over everything? The charm was still there!

I disliked the first two, but my enjoyment is steadily declining.

Oh my gosh, what an ending to his series! The Dire King: A Jackaby Novel by William Ritter is the sevent and final book!
