After battling a supernatural sleeping sickness that early claimed two of their own, the Diviners have had enough of lies. They're more determined than ever to uncover the mystery behind their extraordinary powers, even as they face off against an all-new terror. Out on Ward's Island, far from the city's bustle, sits a mental hospital haunted by the lost souls of people long forgotten--ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the man in the stovepipe hat, also known as the King of Crows. With terrible accounts of murder and possession flooding in from all over, and New York City on the verge of panic, the Diviners must band together and brave the sinister ghosts invading the asylum, a fight that will bring them face-to-face with the King of Crows. But as the explosive secrets of the past come to light, loyalties and friendships will be tested, love will hang in the balance, and the Diviners will question all that they've ever known. All the while, malevolent forces gather from every corner in a battle for the very soul of a nation--a fight that could claim the Diviners themselves.--Provided by Publisher.… (mais)

Wow. The author sure made some bold choices with this book. ( )

Life Lessons from Before the Devil Breaks You:
Always count the cats and make sure the same amount is present and correct. “I’ll be counting the cats when I come over. There better be the same number each time.”

“There was such fear in the world. But love was everywhere if you looked. It was the best thing about humans. That they could stare into the abyss and still open up their hearts. A spit in the eye to fear.”

What Libba said in the beginning of the book: “We are a country built by immigrants, dreams, daring, and opportunity. We are a country built by the horrors of slavery and genocide, the injustice of racism and exclusion. These realities exist side by side. It is our past and our present. The future is unwritten. This is a book about ghosts. For we live in a haunted house.” We talked about this a bit last week with January LaVoy, about how these books are eerily similar to what’s still going on in our world today. We’ve got to realize that we need to come together to have a great future. Or hell… is the King of Crows going to come after us?

This is without a doubt my favorite book in the series so far. It feels like we can finally grasp how big the story really is and I adore how the author managed to weave this paranormal story into what feels like every facette of life in the 1920s U.S.

Also, the audiobooks for this series are absolutely fantastic! Can't recommend them more highly. ( )

This is a fantastic series, and one I highly recommend. Yes, it’s YA, but like so many other novels in this area, it’s VERY informative and knowledgeable about the era it’s in, its mores, its views, etc. it’s VERY well researched.
I, for one, cannot wait until the fourth novel in the series comes out. And I will reserve it at my local library as soon as I’m aware of its purchase and use.
Please give this series a try. You might enjoy it as much as I do.
4.5 stars, and highly recommended. ( )

For all the dreams we've dreamed
And all the songs we've sung
And all the hopes we've held
And all the flags we've hung
The millions who have nothing for our pay—
Except the dream that's almost dead today.

O, let American be America again—
The land that never has been yet—
And yet must be—theland where every
man is free.

—"Let America Be America Again," Langston Hughes
