This is the final book in a trilogy yet it travels back in time to the events preceding the first book McDermott created a city that feels totally lived in and realistic but has an alien undercurrent to it all the time One of the most fascinating things about this series is the POV structure while it is really told by one character she has the ability to draw memories from the skull of a dead person We see most of the story filtered through the memories of dead characters and what they remember of other character s stories The Nuclear Platypus Biscuit Bible realistic but has an alien undercurrent to it all the time One of the most fascinating things about this series is the POV structure while it is The Heartbroken Heartbreaker really told by one character she has the ability to draw memories from the skull of a dead person We see most of the story filtered through the memories of dead characters and what they Rory and Sebastian remember of other character s stories

We Leave Together Dogsland #3 review ´ 103 N the streets a demonic strain has taken hold The shapeshifting priestess and priest of Erin have come to Dogsland stalking a fugitive half breed Senta Rachel Nolander and plot to burn her to cleanse the wo. What Was a Broken Hearted Demon Child to Do The husband and wife Walkers of the Goddess Erin spent the first two books in J M McDermott s Dogsland trilogy Never Knew Another 2011 and When We Were Executioners 2012 sifting the memories adhering to the skull of the dead demon child Corporal Jona Lord Joni in order to find and purify the places he contaminated and to locate and exterminate two other demon spawn his lover Rachel Nolander a mystic elemental sorceress and his foil Salvatore Fidelio an immortal amoral amnesiac thief But by the start of the third book We Leave Together 2014 the Walkers have changed their mission in Dogsland Though they still seek Salvatore to kill him they have put Rachel who s benign and has fled the city on the back burner and have decided to start a fiery revolution to cleanse the city of the Sabacthanis a noble father and daughter team who have been using economic political and magical power to corrupt and dominate Dogsland and its king Two main things shift the Walkers from apolitical holy executioners to engaged arsonist revolutionaries Jona and Rachel s memories of loving each other demon spawn together in a hostile world and Jona s memories of the awful source of the demon weed eating the city from the inside out Early in the novel the wife asks her husband Would you die for me like Jona did for his beloved He replies No You shouldn t die for me either Let me sleep But she says Liar Later she notes Even now his skull cries out her name into the dark In the course of Jona s king s man policeman day job and assassin night work he discovered who s been producing demon weed and inserting it into the city and how it s made but didn t believe he could do anything with the awful knowledge The Walkers will put it to good effectWhile trying to clean up Dogsland in the present the Walker wife also narrates Jona and Rachel s poignant memories of their fraught childhoods and sad parting Rachel recalls for instance how her big half brother Djoss became her protector when they were kids by killing her demon doppelganger father while Jona recollects learning to fear his demon child father s sleepwalking and to avoid sharing an orange with another human being Other memories painfully detail the growing separation of Rachel from Jona due to Djoss falling under the sway of demon weed reuiring her to become his protector He s my whole life I won t let him go JonaWhen finishing a fantasy trilogy one may wonder was it worth all the time and energy to read Does the third volume satisfyingly end the first two The first time I finished this concluding book of the Dogsland trilogy I thought not This was partly due to my having listened to Eileen Stevens give great readings of the first two novels as audiobooks whereas the third novel was only available as a paperback or a kindle I read the kindle version and missed Stevens and found too many typos eg He grabbed the reigns And I thought that McDermott should have finally explained things like Elishta s motives in making the demon spawn and how many there are and why they take different forms And at first I felt that the climax in which after nearly three novels the Walker wife finally remembers how Jona and Rachel parted and how he was killed by his sergeant was disappointing Those aren t spoilers We ve known that such things would happen from the start of the first bookBut I re read the third book and kept thinking about it and the trilogy and started liking it all a lot About the lack of explanation for demon children McDermott may be saying there are no answers for such things Jona looked up at the stars and wondered what they were Religions had answers but there was never an answer that satisfied Jona when his own existence was an abomination to the religions He didn t feel like an abomination He just felt lonely About the climax although Jona is disappointing in his last absurd passive and reckless collaboration with Ela Sabacthani we may somewhat excuse him because he s broken hearted having lost Rachel who d made him a better man a better demon spawn And Jona s last memories reveal that Rachel became strong enough in her will and her magic to leave the city and to take care of Djoss And that Jona could finally briefly dream he was always unable to sleep and even fly his mother had cut off his wings when he was bornFinally given the bleak parameters the trilogy sets up in the first two books the third one ends if not with a happy ending at least with a sense of renewal redemption acceptance and love By experiencing Jona and Rachel s love the Walkers may pursue their duty to seek and destroy all demon spawn a wee less rigidly and righteously They prefer helping Nicola Calipari Jona s sergeant who s still conflicted over having killed Jona get his fledgling farm going and his wife Franka bearing their baby to hunting Rachel They re happy to be outside the city I think the wilderness is where things happen and no one writes about them It is the place where there are no maps no memorials to heroes no gravestones no paper and no ink I enjoyed the vivid laconic poetic writing in the book Flying insects flew into the lamps and died with screams that only my husband and I could hear And it s doomed romance When it is a good dream I dream of your breath moving in and out of your chest and my ear pressed against your chest and the breath flowing in and out of both of us and it is the same breathIf you like literate bleak romantic urban fantasy where the main character is an of demon dead before the story begins and there are few obvious answers to existential uestions you should give the trilogy a try
