Escaping from the grips of Hell requires a mixture of grit and cunning, both of which Prince Jal has in abundance. This final adventure in the Red Queen's War has our reluctant and tarnished anti-hero coming into his own power as a self-serving scoundrel, yes, but his unyielding survival instincts and his contempt for traditional tropes makes us root for him all the same. Snorri, meanwhile, is desperately trying to save his family from the macabre underworld with raw emotion and a killer battle axe sharpened for the corpse armies. The plot is vivid and intriguing, and the breakneck action will keep fans engrossed in this compulsive fantasy about the end of all things and humanity's worst imaginings come to bitter life in a broken world. The villains are nauseating and malevolent, and the fallible heroes spike their witty banter with colorful language and a terrific bromance. Loki's magical key can unlock any door, but Lawrence unlocks this captivating story and brings it to a terrifying and stunning conclusion that will surely please fans.--McCammond-Watts, Heather Copyright 2016 Booklist

While Snorri is desperate to rescue his family from beyond death itself, Jalan wants back his life of privilege and excess. This series's penultimate entry, The Liar's Key, ended on a cliff-hanger, so fans will be eager for this final book.-MM Copyright 2016.
