The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.

They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place…

Review of 'Any Way the Wind Blows' on 'GoodReads'

It's finally here! And it's hollowed me out like a small, decorative pumpkin!

God, I was scared picking up this book, because I didn't know if I was going to love it because it was this series or love it for the book it was, and I didn't know if the pain (because of course there was going to be pain) was going to overcome the rest of it. But dear Lord this book is good.

This book is also really, really funny, which is a gigantic surprise. These characters somehow all got 70% funnier the second they figured out how to use their words to actually communicate. (And yay, communication is a thing in this book!)
And yet, Rainbow flexes fully here and gives up emotional wallops, derringdo, and a comedy hour in between, and none of it feels anything but organic or earned, and all of it …
