Review:
If you thought Volume 7 was stressful I'll warn you now that had nothing on Volume 9. I still haven't recovered from the horrendous ending of this one and I'm just praying things aren't really what they seemed because I can't bear it if that was really true!

After finally seeing all of our favourite characters reunited at the end of the previous book I was honestly hoping that things might go smoothly for a while but of course you know thats not going to happen in a series like this. I mean some things are going well, we have several happy couples who are making the most of their time together, Hazel is turning into quite the little warrior thanks to her training with Petrichor, Ghus is a brilliant babysitter and our reporter duo are working on the story of a lifetime. Meanwhile things are going really badly for The Will and there has been no sign of Sophie, Lying Cat or Gwendolyn since Volume 7 so we're not sure what's going on in their camp.

As much as I love these books I have to admit the body count has been a bit too high in the last few books for my taste, I'm starting to worry whether any of the characters I love are going to survive the series and frankly at the moment its not looking good. I'm still holding out hope that at least one character survives injuries received in this book though, I'm definitely not ready to say goodbye to them yet and the rest of this dysfunctional family needs them too much! Please don't break my heart like that!

It's exhausting looking after Hazel & Squire!

I love the way these two still make time for each other

Hazel is becoming quite the kickass warrior

and she still has the most wonderful conversations with Petrichor
