*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book on Netgalley from the publisher in return for an honest review*
Locke and Key: Alpha & Omega, Joe Hill Gabriel Rodriguez cover
The shadows have never been darker and the end has never been closer. Turn the key and open the last door; it's time to say goodbye.

Joseph Hillstrom King (born 1972) is an American writer of fiction, writing under the pen name of Joe Hill.
Hill's first book, the limited edition collection 20th Century Ghosts published in 2005 by PS Publishing), showcases fourteen of his short stories and won the Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction Collection, together with the British Fantasy Award for Best Collection and Best Short Story for "Best New Horror". Joe Hill is the second son of authors Stephen and Tabitha King. He is married an has three children.

The last book in the fantastic Locke and Key series. I am not sure I am ready to say goodbye.
The first 50 pages are the seniors making a movie for their graduation. The question... what they would change in their past had they known the outcome of a certain decision. In the meantime shadows grow bigger and masks drop. There was a lot of change between these two things happening and I really had to get into the story.
Without giving to much away I will tell that I love the developments in the book and the way both Rodriguez and Hill close things up. The art in the book is of great quality again. Take your time with the images in the Locke and Key books, there are so many small details telling a story of their own in the graphics and this book was not different. The story line is done well too. All characters get their own end and it all makes sense. Nothing is rushed or happening in a way not fitting with the story.
This is a great ending to a great series I will for sure read again and again!

So since we talked about swooning last week... The genius and perfection of Locke & Key probably comes closest to making me swoon. Who needs Mr. Darcy?
