The Lost Codex by Heather Lyons
Series: The Collector’s Society #4
Category: New Adult, Fantasy, Retelling
Publication: November 7th, 2016
Allies, once inseparable, splinter until they break apart.
An insidiousness carves its way through Wonderland, challenging the land’s very existence.
Battle lines will be drawn as pages, long languishing in darkness, are finally illuminated.
Swords will clash, blood will be spilled, and lives will be lost.
For what is written can still be erased.
This is one of those bittersweet moments in the literary world. The moment you’ve been anticipating and dreading simultaneously. The end of a series. The time when you FINALLY get to know everything. Every question will be answered. But it also means finality. The end. No more of these friends whose world you’ve been privileged enough to share for a brief time.
For me, The Lost Codex encapsulates all of those feelings. I have been dying to get to this point since i read the first book. And once I had it on my Kindle, I felt ecstatic! I would know who Alice was meant to be with. I would know WHO the Librarian is! But then, I realized that this is it. I’d have those answers, but then no more adventures.
It was worth it all.
Heather Lyons is brilliant. I cannot stress that enough. From the first time I read The Collectors’ Society, I knew she had a gift. And this unique story is only part of it. To have classic characters brought back to life is incredible, but putting them in modern times — GENIUS.
We’ve followed Alice, Finn, and company to Hell. And now it was a matter of getting everyone out alive. Would it be possible? Honestly, I had no idea. I was anxious to even begin this book. So many things were hanging in the balance. HOW WOULD SHE PULL THIS OFF? In typical Heather Lyons fashion, she delivered. I can’t even express just how much I loved this. I can tell you that for almost the entire book my chest was tight. Nothing about this conclusion is dull or boring. It’s a helluva ride and worth every hour you spend reading. There is action, adventure, romance, the whole enchilada. Fans of fantasy and the rest of this series should have no complaints. (Well, except that it’s over!) I really can’t go into detail for fear of spoiling the outcome, but I will say that I found it to be perfection. I do have one question about how one favorite ended up, but maybe another time. For now, I’ll relish this story, these characters…
I am still in awe of this entire series. I beg you, if you are undecided or hesitant to just give it a chance.
“Somebody ought to write a story about Alice Liddell and Huckleberry Finn falling in love and spending their lives together. It would be my favorite.”
*sigh* Mine, too.
