Product Description

Product Description

The Goblin Market has always been the centre of Sin's world. She's a dancer and a performer, secure in her place. But now the Market is at war with the magicians, and Sin's place is in danger. Keeping secrets from the market she loves, struggling with a friend who has become a rival, Sin is thrown together with the Ryves brothers, Nick and Alan - whom she's always despised. But Alan has been marked by a magician, to be tortured as the magician pleases, and as Sin watches Alan struggle to protect the demon brother he loves, she begins to see both brothers in a new light. But how far will brother go to save brother - and what will it cost them all?

By I Read, Therefore I Blog VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Cynthia (aka Sin) dances in the Goblin Market, summoning demons to answer questions for tourists to support her younger half brother and sister. Having believed that Merris (the Market's leader) would appoint her heir, she now has a rival - Mae, a tourist with a magician brother who's helped by Alan Ryves and his demonically possessed brother Nick. Sin's never liked Alan, but when the magicians took her younger brother several months earlier, he offered himself up instead, taking a magician's mark that's now being used to torture him.

When Merris sets an impossible task to determine the next leader, Mae and Sin form an uneasy alliance that also brings Sin and Alan closer. However the magicians are determined to take over the Market and it soon becomes apparent that Nick is working for them ...

The conclusion to Sarah Rees Brennan's trilogy is a satisfying read that's packed with action and heartache.

Sin's point of view gives further perspective to THE DEMON'S LEXICON and THE DEMON'S COVENANT, particularly the main relationships between Alan, Nick, Mae and Jamie. However as an outsider Sin frequently has to eavesdrop to learn critical information, which becomes repetitive and information is sometimes recapped that the reader (but not Sin) is already aware of. Sin's strongly drawn, her acceptance and use of her sexuality, her devotion to her siblings and her commitment to the history and traditions of the Market give her a strong core, but she's also aware of her limitations and the things that Mae can bring to the Market.

I liked that the competition between Sin and Mae didn't descend into catty rivalry but the tension wasn't sufficient to make it credible. Mae is a stronger character here, more than the ditherer in THE DEMON'S COVENANT.

3.0 out of 5 stars the demon's surrender 14 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have loved every book in this season mainly because i have loved the developing relationship between Nick and Mae. However i was slightly disappointed in this book, as the final book of the series i didn't really feel like it actually gave the charactors much of an ending. I am happy that Alan seemed to finally find someone good for him and that there seemed to be some type of development between Nick and Mae, just wish there had been more of an ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cried on the Tube, thanks Sarah Rees Brennan 22 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed the first two books but this one blew me away. Sin is a wonderful viewpoint character, I fell in love with her completely over the course of this book. Books like this are the reason why someone should invent a machine for hugging fictional characters.

In all seriousness, this trilogy has everything. Compelling, lovable characters, an exciting and clever plot, dialogue that's witty and awesome without being unrealistic, and ideas and storylines that actually make you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to the series :) 13 July 2012
Format:Paperback
Yet another last in the series and I'm once again gutted! I love the Demon's Lexicon books and Sarah's writing is fantastic, so I really hope she has other books planned in the near future :-)

Things really heat up in this book (quiet literally on several occasions) and the characters are put through some seriously difficult trials that I wouldn't like to face personally.
If there's one thing I love about these books it's the authors ability to tackle gritty issues with sensitivity and in a way that keeps the reader engrossed in the book without taking away from the fantasy element.
There are some seriously heartbreaking moments in this book and a few of them nearly reduced me to tears. Yet, having said that, there are other very funny moments that had me nearly on the floor laughing, I especially love any scene with Nick and Mae in it.

The Demon's Surrender continues the plot seamlessly from the previous book as well as the many continuing themes. Mae and Jamie are both marked by Nick, meaning that he has control over them, an issue that affects so many of the characters and their relationships with each other. Having said that, I loved the twists and turns Mae and Nick go through and certain aspects of the plot left me with my heart in my mouth.

Undoubtedly though, the stars of this Novel are Sin and Alan. In this book we see Sin tackle and overcome so many different obstacles including her own feelings for Alan (which is very entertaining at times).
Having said that, even this leads to some heartache and there are some moments regarding Sin and Alan which also had me in tears. Alan too has to overcome some of his own issues in order to move forward but as usual it never goes smoothly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but there have been better 29 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Demon's Lexicon trilogy are among my favorite books, they are witty and action-packed. However my favorite book in the Demon's Trilogy is the Demon's Covenant and this book just doesn't hold up to that. The witty lines are gold nuggets as opposed to the core to several conversations, the action is not great and all the relationships are awfully forced. The character of Sin was interesting and mysterious in earlier books but as a central character she is dull and cannot compare to Mae, Nick, Alan and Jamie.
In conclusion I would say if you liked the other books you should buy this but if you were skeptical about the other books, I would avoid this I were you. Don't get me wrong, the good things are great but the bad stuff is terrible when not pulled off right.
