Book Review: The Final Descent by Rick Yancey

November 11, 2013 at 2:10 pm Leave a comment

FinalDescent“I often wondered if monstrumology brought out the darkness in men’s hearts or if it attracted men with hearts of darkness.”

This is the final chapter in lives of Pellinore Warthrop and his indispensable assistant, Will Henry. They’ve hunted unimaginable beasts, seen inhuman monsters and traveled into the heart of darkness. But the darkest place of all may yet be their own hearts.

Will Henry and Warthrop are two of the most fascinating, complex characters out there and nothing about this book makes them simpler. They are linked by their mutual past, their secretive work, their unconquerable distrust and their unlikely need for one another. For me, that link made the conclusion to their story the only end possible.

If you’re a fan, you can’t miss the end of the Monstrumologist series. If you haven’t read the other three books in this excellent series, do not read this book because it will make no sense. Start at the beginning with The Monstrumologist.
