Thankfully I finally remembered the name and purchased all three books used in very good condition. I did recieve a tracking item with this purchase and I do recomend this book for those with an enjoyment of occult.
It has mild cliches but it's nothing over done where as it's unbearable to read. I love this book and I can't wait to finish it.
Book series: 5/5
Seller: Green Earth Books- They provided very good service and replied to any of my questions within the 1-2 days!
That said, I don't think there are too many stories out there like the May Bird series. I have read all three and think they are all wonderful. They are a little on the dark side, dealing with death and the afterworld, so younger readers be forewarned. But the characters themselves are brilliant- the house ghost Pumpkin with his yellow tuft of hair, the "luminous boy" Lucius, brought to the afterworld (known as the "Ever After") by the Boogeyman, and May's loyal companion, SomberKitty. You wind up feeling like they are your friends, too, as you read the story. It's also nice to see a strong female character, very human, that many young girls will relate to (the fact that she feels like she doesn't fit in).
It must be very difficult for an author to write sequels. Everyone always expects them to top the last book. But with May Bird, you don't so much see the stories topping one another. You see May growing and changing, so the stories grow and change with her. They do get progressively darker since she must battle the evil forces (Bo Cleevil) who threaten Ever After. And you have to expect some serious subject matter here, too, because we are dealing with death and dead souls, so by the time you reach "Warrior Princess," there are some extremely sad parts (be prepared for the ending).
If you read the first two books in the series then you HAVE to read this one. After reading the reviews here, I wasn't sure if I should buy this one, but now I am so glad I did. I think the story is beautiful, and much deeper than the other two, as we finally come to a conclusion for May and see what she has learned on her journey.
I HIGHLY recommend reading all three in order. You can read this one without having read the other two, but you will be missing out on seeing May grow, and that would be a shame.
