The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times best-selling series the Chicago Tribune called "Sherlock Holmes crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer" sends the eccentric detective and his indispensable assistant into the heart of a war between magical worlds. The fate of the world is in the hands of detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook. An evil king is turning ancient tensions into modern strife, using a blend of magic and technology to push Earth and the Otherworld into a mortal competition. Jackaby and Abigail are caught in the middle as they continue to solve the daily mysteries of New Fiddleham, New England -- like who's created the rend between the worlds, how to close it, and why zombies are appearing around town. At the same time, the romance between Abigail and the shape-shifting police detective Charlie Cane deepens, and Jackaby's resistance to his feelings for 926 Augur Lane's ghostly lady, Jenny, begins to give way. Before the four can think about their own futures, they will have to defeat an evil that wants to destroy the future altogether.… (mer)

So this is the last book? I'm a bit sad about that, although this series never became what I wanted it to become. I loved Jackaby and I liked Abigail Rook, but I wanted stories about their investigations into supernatural cases. Instead, I got one long, convoluted story about a Dire King and some major battle between the worlds and between good and evil.

Whew, its over. It says it's the final one, so now that this has wrapped up, there definitely won't be any more supernatural detecting. A pity. There were some good characters here. I wish the storyline had just been more fun. ( )

Though this ends on a huge light note ( pun for the readers ) it was not the book outta the series that has impressed me the most. Books 1 and 3 were my favorites.
I keep forgetting , until I find myself deep within its pages, that Jackaby sounds like he might be in the spectrum a little bit. His lack of interpersonal skills with humans always seems to sneak up and smack me in the face. Other than the hand print in my cheek, This was a ssslllooowwwww A book with too many deaths, why is there so much violence? those damn fairies, oops did I spoil the big crescendo of suspense? No , because this book is about as predictable as me dancing to a Madonna song, it’s just gonna happen.
So, save that ya coins, and tune into my social media page to watch me GET INTO THE GROOVE! ( )

Oh my gosh, what an ending to this series!

The Dire King: A Jackaby Novel by William Ritter is the fourth and final book! The author makes the characters so well developed, and by the fourth book I feel I know them like family! The world building is awesome and original, the plot is great, and it is witty and has sprinkles of humor throughout the book. But the ending of this series as fabulous! Emotions everywhere, but we'll worth it! Terrific series! ( )

To say that the house at 926 Augur Lane was not yet back to normal would be to grossly misrepresent the nature of the house at 926 Augur Lane.
