Official Blurb: 

Savannah has fallen to the vampires, and it’s up to Grier to take out their leader, Gaspard Lacroix, and restore peace. Lacroix might be more powerful and immune to her magic, but she’s got a plan. Too bad it’s got holes big enough for a new threat to waltz through while the city is on her knees.

Now Grier must risk her very soul if she hopes to slay her enemies and prevent her world from going up in flames. But salvation comes at a steep price, and she’s not the only one who will pay. The cost just might break her, and the man who owns her heart.

This can’t be the last book. I absolutely refuse to think that this is the end of Grier and Linus’ story. Nope. Not going to even start thinking about that. After just finding this series earlier this year and binge the ever-loving crap out of it, I am just going to think happy thoughts. Happy not series ending thoughts.  *Sigh*

How to Wake an Undead City is by far one of the best *not saying it* series ending that I have read in the last few years. Edwards hits all the sentimental throwback marks and wraps up nearly every single question that I had in a neat, black bow. The final leg of character and plot development was off the charts. I had all the feels. Happiness. Sadness. Fear. Surprise. Speaking of that last emotion, the biggest surprise that came was Woolly’s. I had my ideas about the origin of our favorite house with the attitude, but never in my wildest dreams did I see that coming. My heart broke and smiled all at the same time. I didn’t even know that was possible.  But, it’s in a very, very good way.

But… there is a light at the end of the series tunnel when it comes to spin-off stories and a new series featuring a character from the original one that I am absolutely dying to read.  Can we get those books… like.. tomorrow? Please?
