**While this review is spoiler free for Monsters of Men, it does contain potential spoilers for The Knife of Never Letting Go and The Ask and The Answer**

Following the events of The Ask and the Answer, Todd and Viola are caught in the middle of war. Mayor Prentiss and Mistress Coyle are trying to gain control over each other, meanwhile the Spackle have mobilized to avenge those that they have lost.

I’m not a fan or war and fight scenes in books. I get bored easily, and generally end up skim reading these parts. So between the 603 pages of this book, and the fact that it seemed to be entirely based around a war, I have been putting off picking this up for a while. I wish I had gotten to it sooner!

The perspectives in this novel work brilliantly, although the new one did take a bit of getting used to. This was definitely a book which keeps you on your toes, trying to figure how who can be trusted and who is really fighting for good. And the ending was brilliant.

Overall this is a great end to the series, and is actually my favourite of the trilogy. That very rarely happens with a final book!
