My thoughts…

This is the fourth and last book in the Diviner’s series. The characters in The Diviner’s series bring me so much joy just to read. The banter, love and trust between this friend group was so great to see. Evie the main character grew so much in the series. She finally chose the man she loved and got out of that love triangle. The writing and atmosphere is amazing, it kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen.

There was a lot of character growth from all the friends in this book. Theta conquered her fear, Evie learned to be a true friend after going through a life changing situation. I love these characters so much I wish I could speak on each of them. Give details on everyone but I just want you to love these characters as much as I do Evie, Theta, Sam, Jericho, Memphis, Isaiah, Ling, Henry, Uncle Bill and Uncle Will. SN: I never remember character names but, the fact I remember everyone tells you I love this series and how attached I am to them.

The plot of trying to find and kill the King of Crows and Eye that’s controlling the dead. I just loved this series and The King of Crows was a great ending and close to the series. I definitely think this book was one of my favorites of the series. There was so much happening, my heart was ripped out and stomped on multiple times. I won’t go into spoilers but please pick this series up if you want to get attached to characters, cry your eyes out and have your heart stomped on multiple times do it. The 1920’s setting, flappers, ghosts, magic and witches you won’t regret it. I highly recommend this series if you couldn’t tell. I rated this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars.

I hope you enjoyed this post of my review for The King of Crows. I have also linked my gist from Readerly below if you’d like to check that out. Stay safe, keep reading and dreaming 🌸🦋✨.
