The Last Life of Prince Alastor by Alexandra Bracken

The Last Life of Prince Alastor

It is expected to be released on February 5, 2019, by Disney-Hyperion.

I adore this cover. I already did the Waiting on Wednesday on the first book in the duology. I love this one just because of the cat! The cat is so cute! I want one. I am still not sure on the typography just like the first book but for some reason, it fits better here than on the first cover. I like the color combos. It’ll look pretty next to the blue. I am wondering on the endpapers. Have you any ideas on what it’ll look like?

I haven’t read the first book but I was planning on to marathon read these back to back. I find that it’s easier for me to remember the details. If you did read the first book, what do you guys think?

Three hundred years ago, fate-bound Prosper Redding and Prince Alastor of the Third Realm together. Now the human boy and fiend heir to the demon kingdom must put aside a centuries-old blood feud to save everything they love.

Alastor will guide Prosper through the demon realm-under one huge condition: Prosper must enter into a contract with the malefactor residing in him, promising eternal servitude in the afterlife. With Prosper’s sister in the clutches of the evil queen Pyra, Prosper has no choice but to agree.

But when they arrive in Alastor’s deliciously demonic home, the realm is almost as alien to Alastor as it is to Prosper-the lowest fiends have dethroned the ruling malefactors, while an unfathomable force called the Void is swiftly consuming the realm. The desperate fiends cling to the one person who says she can stop it: Pyra.

As Prosper embarks on a perilous rescue mission to the Tower of No Return, he can’t help but feel for the demons losing their home-even Alastor, who lives by a set of rules that have vanished in a new world.

With the fates of humans and demons at odds, the battle lines are drawn. Long ago, Prosper’s ancestor Honor Redding proved that humans and demons could never be friends. But is Prosper like his ancestor? And is Alastor the same demon who was betrayed by the one human he cared for?
