The Dire King
Jackaby #4
by William Ritter
* * * * Stars (Great!)

Jackaby and his assistant Abigail Rook are facing the greatest challenge of their professional lives.  The Dire King now has almost everything he needs to rip away the barrier between the Anwynn (Faerie) and the human world.  In fact, looking back, now they can see his hand behind the troubles that have been brewing between their world and the supernatural.  They might be able to stop him if they can reach the rend in time, but they must tread carefully, as Jackaby and his unique vision are the last cog in the Dire King’s machine.  Several surprising plot twists will keep readers glued to the pages and eager to find out what happens next.  A fantastic conclusion to this exciting supernatural series.
