Matt Archer: Redemption: Review and Giveaway

From Goodreads:
“There’s more to me than you know…”

When Matt Archer’s sister, Mamie, said those words to him three years ago, he had no idea how prophetic they were, or what this would mean for his family.

Now, he knows. And it changes everything, bringing the war right to Matt’s doorstep.

In the epic conclusion to the Matt Archer series, the endgame is near. Betrayed by an enemy, the wielders have been called off the hunt by their own government, despite increasing reports of paranormal activity—and deaths—worldwide. Matt is forced to sit on the sidelines, knowing that proving monsters exist means revealing who—and what—he is. Soon the world will know his name…which will only make his job harder.

Matt’s only hope resides with a man he barely knows—his father. If Erik Archer can put together the final puzzle before the monsters do, maybe they’ll have a chance. Maybe.

Mystery, tragedy and the power of family combine as Matt races to win the war and save the people he loves. There’s just one thing he’s afraid of…

It might already be too late.

My Review:
Oh, this book was bittersweet. I mean, it's the last book in a fantastic series, and yeah, the last one, so we say goodbye to all the characters who've survived to this book. And then not all of them survive to the epilogue, which is yeah, sad.

One of my most favourite of lines in this book, is a thought of Matt's, right near the beginning, about ketchup and swallowing words, Uncle Mike's words, to Badass Aunt Julie. Just a hilarious little line in all the horrible things that have already happened to the group since the novel opened up.

Of all the monsters from the first 4 books, the only ones that Matt hadn't fought yet (besides the Lions, which if I remember correctly, and I should since I just reread it yesterday, Matt fought something similar to them while in Africa) were the Pandas. So of course he gets a chance to fight them in this book, though they don't get much screen time, because everybody involved has good deal of hunting experience by now, or sadly, they die pretty quickly into any battle.

The whole thing of Mamie being Tink's proxy, and that Matt was just a guardian? And that the Dark Guy Whose Title Involved Dark, and Was 2 Words Long But I've Already Forgotten What the Other Word Was, was the force that caused the Big Bang, and created life as an unwanted side effect? That everyone came to being so long ago from stars-like the spirits in the knives? That was pretty cool!

Like I said, this book was bittersweet, but I loved the journey that I went on it, loved reading it, and this series will always remain near and dear to my heart! After all, almost all of them, I've read for a tour, and Matt Archer: Monster Hunter was one of the first book tour for review books that was a) a series and b) a series that I eagerly followed!
