The Demon's Surrender: By Sarah Rees Brennan



The Goblin Market has always been the center of Sin’s world. But now the Market is at war with the magicians, and Sin’s place is in danger. Thrown out of the Market she loves, Sin is thrown together with brothers Nick and Alan—whom she’s always despised.

Alan has been marked by a magician and is being tortured so that the magicians can get to Nick. As Sin watches Alan struggle to protect the demon brother he loves, she begins to see him in a new light—but she and Mae are locked in a fierce rivalry over who will inherit the leadership of the Goblin Market, and a decisive battle with the Aventurine Circle is looming. Mae’s brother, Jamie, is holed up with the magicians, his loyalties in question. And Nick—well, who knows what a demon might do to save his brother? How far will Nick go to save Alan—and what will it cost them all?


The first thing I have to say is that The Demon’s Lexicon was fantastic. It was shocking, well written, and original.

Now I realize that The Demon’s Covenant changes narrators, and while it was still good in my opinion it wasn’t as fantastic as the 1st installment. The Demon’s Surrender suffers from this same problem, as it once again changes narrators.

Of course that said, this is still a good book, and a decent end to the trilogy. It is not nearly as bad as the reviews on Amazon make it out too be, and should still be bought and enjoyed.

Obviously the first two books in the series should be read before this installment, but once you get to this piece of the story readers should fully enjoy it as the author does a fantastic job.

The action is fast and present throughout the entire story, the pace quick, and the characters interesting. I would have liked it better from Alan’s point of view, but Sin’s was still interesting.

All in all The Demon’s Surrender is a fun book that has the hard job of ending an interesting series. If you’ve read the first two books then definitely don’t hold back, and make sure you pick up this newest and final installment.
