In the conclusion to the trilogy that Publishers Weekly called "a roaring -and addictive - gothic world", Eleanor Fitt must control her growing power, face her feelings for Daniel, and confront the evil necromancer Marcus ... all before it’s too late.
He took her brother, he took her mother, and now, Marcus has taken her good friend Jie. With more determination than ever to bring this sinister man to justice, Eleanor heads to the hot desert streets of nineteenth-century Egypt in hopes of ending this nightmare. But in addition to her increasingly tense relationships with Daniel, Joseph, and her demon, Oliver, Eleanor must also deal with her former friend, Allison, who has curiously entangled herself in Eleanor’s mission.
With the rising dead chomping at her every move and Jie’s life hanging in the balance, Eleanor is convinced that her black magic will see her through to the bitter end. But there will be a price. Though she and the Spirit Hunters have weathered every battle thus far, there will be consequences to suffer this time - the effects of which will be irreversible. And when it’s over, only some will be able to live a strange and ever after.
Susan Dennard will leave readers breathless and forever changed in the concluding pages of this riveting ride.

Featured Review
A powerful, poignant, and absolutely satisfying end to a wonderful and unique series, Strange and Ever After absolutely destroyed me in the best way possible. Wrapping up a trilogy can be tricky, but Susan Dennard exceeded any expectations and hopes I had - the characters were as vibrant as ever, the plot electrifying, and the romance totally swoon-worthy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a future spin-off series, but until then, I am 100% a happy and satisfied fan! BRAVA!!

About the Author
Susan Dennard is a writer turned marine biologist turned writer again. Strange and Ever After is the conclusion to her trilogy, which includes Something Strange and Deadly and A Darkness Strange and Lovely. Among the traits she shares with her heroine Eleanor are a weakness for Shakespeare quotes, a healthy appetite for baked goods, and an insatiable curiosity. Sadly, Susan does not get to wear a corset or wave a parasol on a daily basis.
