about

Three hundred years ago, fate bound Prosper Redding and Prince Alastor of the Third Realm together. Now the human boy and fiend heir to the demon kingdom must put aside a centuries-old blood feud to save everything they love.
Alastor will guide Prosper through the demon realm-under one huge condition: Prosper must enter into a contract with the malefactor residing in him, promising eternal servitude in the afterlife. With Prosper's sister in the clutches of the evil queen Pyra, Prosper has no choice but to agree.
But when they arrive in Alastor's deliciously demonic home, the realm is almost as alien to Alastor as it is to Prosper-the lowest fiends have dethroned the ruling malefactors, while an unfathomable force called the Void is swiftly consuming the realm. The desperate fiends cling to the one person who says she can stop it: Pyra.
As Prosper embarks on a perilous rescue mission to the Tower of No Return, he can't help but feel for the demons losing their home-even Alastor, who lives by a set of rules that have vanished in a new world.
With the fates of humans and demons at odds, the battle lines are drawn. Long ago, Prosper's ancestor Honor Redding proved that humans and demons could never be friends. But is Prosper like his ancestor? And is Alastor the same demon who was betrayed by the one human he cared for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spooky Fun This was a great ending to a really fun duology! I quickly remembered all the players and what was going on in their universe. It was really cool to see another version of the underworld that was a little more lighthearted and, dare I say, fun, than most interpretations of the underworld. I know that goes with the target audience, but it was still a nice change! The lore and world building was great, and I loved the comparisons drawn between Aalstor and his memories versus what is seen when Alastor returns with Prosper. It truly draws you in and adds to the enjoyment. The main characters are fantastic. Prosper is a great kid that you just want to root for, Alastor's internal struggle is quite compelling, and Nell is a strong young woman with a complex history. The demons are creative and creepy, which makes this a perfect read for anyone who loves Halloween. I really enjoyed this book. It had a ton of heart and is perfect to read for any time of the year, but I recommend saving it for Halloween or whenever you're in the mood for a fun, spooky read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Conclusion 3.75 stars Thank you to NetGalley and Disney Book Group for sending me an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This book was a really fun and satisfying conclusion to the Propser Redding series. This book picks up immediately after the ending of the first book, with Prosper heading into the Downstairs, with Alastor, to rescue his sister Prue from the queen of the fiends, Pyra. Propser is immediately swept in the mayhem of the Downstairs, and with the help of old and new friends, he must find out where his sister is and save her while trying to save the human and demon realms as well. I liked where the plot went in this book. There was a lot of really interesting twists and turns throughout the book and it kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next. There was also a lot of really great world building in this novel. As we are being introduced to the Downstairs for the first time, I was glad to see so much description about all the different types of fiends and areas that we visited throughout the novel. Plot wise, my only critique would be that although some interesting developments were introduced fairly early on in the novel, they were either not addressed again or did not come into play as much as I thought they would. There were also some aspects that I found predictable. I did enjoy how the novel wrapped as a whole and felt very satisfied with what ended up happening to Propser and his crew. Charactereise, we saw a lot of interesting development from both Alastor and Prosper. I enjoyed seeing Propser struggle between choosing to do what would help him and his family and doing what was right. We saw him develop a lot as a character, and we saw him slowly turn into the best version of himself. Alastor had a more subtle character arc in my opinion. It did not seem like he changed all that much, but by the end we saw the subtle changes come to a head and we got to see Alastors true colors shine through. As with the first book, I would have loved to have seen more development of the minor characters, especially the ones that were introduced for the first time in this book. Overall, this was a satisfying end to a series and I would recommend this book to people looking for a fun, adventure story.

Editorial Reviews

*"The adventure through the well-realized, lovingly disgusting, monstrous world is a wild ride on its own, with one Hell of a climax. Its power increases through deft exploration of privilege, choice, and responsibility, themes that manifest in genuinely moving moments. A demonic buddy-comedy with as much danger as heart--fiendishly fun."-Kirkus (starred review)
