Synopsis:

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

I don’t know if I was so enamored with the series and failed to see the first two books’ flaws and faults but I feel that this was the weakest book of the entire series. I had a very difficult time to get through this one. Unlike the previous two, I neglected to feel that urge to continuously read and “never put it down”. I had to encourage myself (and combined with the fact that I didn’t want to carry around this heavy book anymore) to try to finish this book and I don’t think I should force myself to like a book.

Book Review: Lot No. 249 by Arthur Conan Doyle

Format:  Paperback

Pages: 55 pages

Published: 2016

Publisher: Penguin Little Black Classics

Genre: Mystery & Thriller

The short story opens up with a center of three students who are staying in rooms at a secluded college. All appear to be fine until strange happenings start occurring.

I never got a chance to read anything by Arthur Conan Doyle and that includes the Sherlock Holmes stories. Bu after reading this short story, I can’t wait to read more of his work. This story had every making of a supernatural story: sense of strange, tense action , spine tingling mystery. You can feel the drama mounting as you continue reading. There is very little mystery because you figure out what is really going on. But the suspense of the story just captures you that you forget about not having a “whodunit” common mystery. This is a perfect novelette to read during Halloween.

It was a quick and fund read that might possibly let you think twice when you see a mummy’s sarcophagus.
