What can I say about this book other than it was another amazing book to the series and I want more. I think this series gets better and better with each book. I like how we see the characters evolve with each chapter and how much more information we get from the characters. I was shock with some information that was reveal about one of the main characters in the series. That was an intense twist. I like how strong the characters are within the story. We get to know them more as the book progress. That is one of the things that I enjoy most of this series. The character development.

Another thing I like about this series are the cases. They are so different and they pulled you into the story. They keep you on the edge and keep you guessing what will come next. Some of the turns you would have never guess it would have happened and that is a thing that I love. I like that we don't know what is coming. That we don't expect the outcome.

One thing about this book is that I hear it in audiobook format. I love the narrator for this series. It's the perfect voice for the character. When I am hearing it I picture Cormoran speaking those line. It's not to slow and it's not too fast, it's the perfect pace. The reader doesn't bore you.

If you like a good mystery book and you are yet to read the Cormorant Strike series I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed at all.


  1. I still haven't read any of J K Rowling's books that aren't Harry Potter related! I am a MASSIVE HP fan, but just never got around to it, as it's not a genre that I generally go for. Still definitely want to pick them all up sometime, as I obviously adore her writing style, and Jo is QUEEN. Love your blog! xx

    1. I really LOVE this series. You should give it a try. You will never know you may even enjoy the genre. It's really entertaining. But it is VERY different that her HP series. It's mystery, but is so good. Each book get's better and better. Really love how the characters grow in each book.
