Today, BookRiot revealed the fourth and final installment to the Jackaby series by William Ritter. The final book The Dire King is gonna hit shelves on August 22nd and that wait is so long! People on Goodreads were trying to theorize what the final color and person would be on the cover. While I’m not quite sure yet who the man is (either Charlie or Doughlas perhaps) on the cover, look at this beautiful cover!

Pulled from Goodreads

I had thought that this would be the color. Given that the premise does promise very high stakes, this color seems to fit well. I also like the striking light blue in the background of Abigail and Jackaby as well. I’m so curious of what the title means as well. If you haven’t read this series yet, you’ll love it if you’re a fan of Doctor Who, Sherlock and Buffy.

This link from BookRiot also includes an exclusive excerpt, which I recommend ONLY to read if you’re caught up with the series. If you’re a fan, comment below and share this with people you know who love this series 🙂
