Release date: July 22nd 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Purchase: Amazon | B&N

Synopsis via Goodreads:
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.

Susan DennardAbout 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 A Darkness Strange and Lovely and Something Strange and Deadly. 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.

~~~Spoilers Ahead!~~~

Top 5 Moments in Something Strange & Deadly:

1.)     When Eleanor first meets Daniel Sheridan. She’s not used to “low society” and she’s completely thrown by his rough, unabashed manner. Of course, her shock is quickly replaced by fury and the absolute certainty that she does not like Mr. Daniel Sheridan.
2.)     The first time Eleanor faces off to an entire army of walking corpse she has nothing but her parasol to defend herself! Fortunately, she runs into a Chinese boy (or…girl?) at the Centennial Exhibition who teaches Eleanor the most important lesson of all when fighting the Dead: Aim for the knees!
3.)     When Eleanor joins the Spirit-Hunters at the Mercantile Library for some research, they’re interrupted by a ghost bent on destruction. It takes all the efforts of Eleanor and the Spirit-Hunters to stop that ghost, but hey! It turns out the four of them make quite the team.
4.)     After Eleanor and Daniel break into a dynamite factory, Eleanor’s recklessness gets Daniel into trouble. In her attempt to rectify what she’s done, Eleanor winds up making everything worse—leaving she and Daniel with no choice but to flee the dynamite factory at top speed…before it explodes.
5.)     When an army of Dead invade the Centennial Exhibition and set fire to the buildings, Eleanor knows she has to take action. She faces off to a spirit and the walking Dead in one of the abandoned, creeptastic halls at the Exhibition.
