Publisher's Summary

The fifth and final book in The Books of Elsewhere, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling, fan-favorite series - absolutely not to be missed.
Annabelle McMartin is gone for good, but something worse lurks just out of sight - watching, waiting, preparing to strike. Then a field trip to the local art museum reveals a shock. What Olive discovers will create a chain of events that propel her to discoveries she may not wish to uncover, involving Morton's vanished parents and the very deepest, darkest roots of Aldous McMartin's creepy painted world. In this fifth and final book, Olive must seek the full, complex story of Elsewhere, its magical origins, and its creator, and in so doing, face her own fears and limitations - and possibly the destruction of Elsewhere itself. How far will Olive go to save the people and home she loves? And what will be the final cost?
A must-read fantasy series for fans of Pseudonymous Bosch, Coraline, and Septimus Heap.

Fun Read

Would you consider the audio edition of Still Life to be better than the print version?

Not sure, I didn't read the book. I listened to the audio version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rutherford Dewey, he was interesting to listen to... fun facts about history, etc. He was also mysterious at times along with his Grandmother. He thought through things sensibly before reacting.

What does Lexy Fridell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Life in the characters. She really felt like Olive vs. just the voice to the story's narrative.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Morton found his parents. It would have been great to get more emotion though out of that part. It seemed like the audio just glossed over the reunion.

Any additional comments?

I thought the series could have been wrapped up in one less book. Book 4, The Strangers was good; however, seemed to drag a bit. All in all it was a great read! Thank you!
