The Beautiful Dead comes to a climactic end

The Beautiful Dead series by Eden Maguire quickly became one of my faves as I dived into the very first book: Beautiful Dead: Jonas on a train ride home from the NY SCBWI winter conference a few years ago.As each book was released, I must say I was never disappointed and couldn't wait to get my hands on the next installment.

I hate to see the series end, but I recently finished the last book in the series, Beautiful Dead: Phoenix. In this fourth and final installment, we know how Darina has helped previous members of the Beautiful Dead bring about justice for their deaths, but now the heat is on as Darina has to help her 'undead' boyfriend, Phoenix. Can Darina keep it together, knowing that her time with Phoenix is running out?

I couldn't put this book down and was pleasantly surprised with some of the surprising plot twists Maguire weaved in. Since book one, I've loved the character Darina as she's strong-willed, independent, and very captivating and Darina doesn't let you down in this one either.

If you're in the market for a clever, and intriguing series, look no further. The Beautiful Dead will fill your appetite for the dark side, romance, supernatural, drama, action, and more.
