Question Christ s descent into hell NEW ADVENT Objection It would seem that it was not fitting for Christ to descend into hell, because Augustine says Ep ad Evod cliv Nor could I find anywhere in the Scriptures hell mentioned as something good.But Christ s soul did not descend into any evil place, for neither do the souls of the just Therefore it does not seem fitting for Christ s soul to descend into hell.

    It occurred to me that aberrance is a wholly human construct. There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind. We are vain and arrogant, evolution's highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self-awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us. But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything. There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere––and nowhere.I [...]

    Monster buddy read with Tash & Haley (August-September 2015).It's impossible for me to say how utterly genius Rick Yancey is for writing such a conclusion for this series. I don't think I've ever read a book that has bended my mind the way this series, and especially this book, has. Only a mastermind like Yancey is capable of haunting me with the shadow of a book series for more than a year.After this reread, some things finally snapped into focus. I was finally able to see what Yancey might [...]

    I take The Final Descent and what do I find at the bottom?Indeed, my mind was blown nuked, I don’t even know how to begin to review the finale of The Monstrumologist series. I guess I’ll start with my expectations. I had a picture in my head of one last adventure for Will and Warthrop to bag a monster of legendary proportions. Warthrop dies, Will continues the craft, opens a school for Monstrumologist hopefuls, he names it The Pellinore Warthrop School for the Strange or something, he marrie [...]

    *Spoilers ahead* With a heavy heart I have decided that I can not give this book a rating higher than one star. The good: Beautiful prose. Rick Yancey is one of those writers whose prose is absolutely poetic and breathtakingly beautiful. Reading his written word is a pleasure, he is a wordsmith of the highest caliber. Yancey's turn of phrase is absolutely compelling and emotive. Monsters. Yancey creates some truly horrific and completely believable monsters. The return of favorite characters. Na [...]

    Oh dear, that was rather disappointing. The monstrumologist started so well four books back, but I have to say, this concluding volume has turned out to be the worst of the lot. The deft writing is still there, the pretty prose. But our intrepid, likable protagonist, Will Henry, is gone, replaced by cold-hearted enigma. His character has taken such a 180 between books that the change is jarring, and not for the better. He is no longer a character to stand behind and cheer for. And neither is any [...]

    There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind. A clusterfuck of mindfucks is what this book is.The finale to The Monstrumologist left me with more questions than answers and admittedly, with more fucking heart ache than ever. Rick Yancey has truly outdone himself this time.ReadingThe Final Descent is like falling into a dark gap instead of a rabbit hole that (used to) lead one to Wonderland.This book did not make me happy. At all.Nearly everything and everyone I have come to known [...]

    GUYS GUYS GUYS MY COPY ARRIVED EARLY. HOLY CRAP. This book is going to destroy me. Utterly.UPDATE:I did. I'm dead inside now.Also, even though we're basically the smallest fandom ever, I think we're also some of the most obsessive people when it comes to this series.

    I cannot do this. I will not do this.This book is like when a loved one lays dying in a hospital bed, sickly, washed-out, and hooked up to all sorts of machines. More specifically, this book is like when that loved one asks you not to remember them that way, but rather as the way they were when they lived. The Monstrumologist series has been such an incredible ride, full of growth and beauty and pain and horror. I want to remember it as being as fantastic as I know it is, not the way The Final D [...]

    “HumanI don't know what that word meansTell me what defines itWell, I've been meaning to write a proper review for this one weeks ago, but I didn't know that it would take the death of a dear friend in order for me to be pushed into writing this review.Oh well, life's shitty that way.We all fucking lost someone or something over the years. It may be trivial things or important things but you still lost it. The Final Descent is a book about losing something. For those who have read and loved Th [...]

    Snap to, Mr. Yancey, snap to! Please and thank you.

    Confusing, all over the place, jumping between 3 different stories, the characters turn into basically cold-hearted murderers from page one, there is so much missing between this and the third book. What the hell happened to the boy from book 1-3?! I simply didn't get parts of the story apart from the over all confusion about the characters. I feel like I missed/skipped an entire book. This was so weirdly different. I'm still confused as to what the point of this story was. This series started o [...]

    8/27/13 edit:It's coming out next month! I've been on and off the summary page several times this week already, willing the days to move faster. I NEED MY MONSTER FIX! Have you seen that cover? It's delicious!Original text:The fact that the last book is taking two years to write makes me want to throw myself at a Wendigo and then let the good doctor just hack me up to "save" me. The torture is great. There isn't even a cover yet to fuel any wild speculations about what new horrors are next. What [...]

    Although there were several aspects of the first three books in the series that I disliked (Will's tendency to go off tangent about the big moral questions of life, universe and everything, the cartoony female characters whose first and foremost function was to be love interests for the adventuring men, the sometimes a bit awkward cameos from historical figures), I enjoyed them overall. I came late to the series so I had no idea about the whole cancellation drama and the fans petitioning for mor [...]

    THE COVER CAME OUT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!DO YOU SEE THAT BEAUTIFUL ORANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?OMG!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4.5 starsAt first, it was just about the story of this peculiar little boy with a most peculiar profession: he aided the only person he had in his life, for better or worse, in the hunting of monsters - real, terrifying ones whose existence were a cruel joke from God, a reminder than humankind was not special, that they ruled nothing. Then, the lines began to blur and a war between what's real, what's not and what we want it to be broke out in that little boy's life.Shortly after that, there wer [...]

    It's hard to know that you are about to read the last book in a series. A series that isn't very popular and for the most part not many people have heard of it. Those who have read it are rabid fans and completely loyal to the story of William James Henry and Pellinor Warthrop. With a heavy heart I review this last book in the series knowing this will be the last time I am able to hear/read about Will Henry and Dr. Warthrop.Have you read the first 3? Probably not and if you did I already know yo [...]

    I don't know how to feel about this finale. (view spoiler)[I can't tell if the characters' ignominious ends were authentic and inevitable or a disappointing betrayal of the people I came to know in Books One through Three. It's not just that I'm uncomfortable with the direction the characters took, but that I can't decide if it's a natural, earned progression or something the author felt but didn't justify (to me, at least) by giving it enough time to develop. Will and Pellinore didn't feel like [...]

    I hate you, Rick Yancey. And I love you for making me hate you for writing this.It was different. It was ugly. It was beautiful. It was sad. It was kind of perfect.The only reason I rate 4 stars instead of 5 is that it felt abrupt to go from the 3rd book to this one. A bit of a detachment from the smooth transitions the other books made.Still, one of the more unique series I've ever read. I highly recommend.

    I honestly don't know what to make of this final book in the series. I enjoyed the three previous books but this book was such a mess that I'm rethinking it all. I feel cheated of a real ending. No other way to put it. I wish I had stopped at the third book.

    I honestly have no idea how to talk about this book without spoilers, but here goes. This final book has the author Rick Yancey disgusted (we also get a foreward) due to him finding out the truth about Will Henry and the doctor. And at times we are told as readers to turn back, but if you don't, you have no one but yourself to blame.We now find three Will Henry's in this book. We find Will Henry at the age of 16 still in service to the doctor, Will Henry I think at least 40 years old (due to the [...]

    This one was a bit existential for my tastes. I think teens would hate it, honestly, because if you are reading simply for an adventure and a linear plot, this book does not provide. Yancey again displays his gorgeous use of language and turns of phrase, but their beauty is surface deep; they sound pretty together, but often have little to no meaning or are repetitive. I also felt the suspense and horror of the first three books was lacking--not completely gone, just not quite up to par. The few [...]

    September, 2013?But hey! It's the same month as Patrick Ness' More Than This

    The Final Descent by Rick Yancy was a remarkably disappointing conclusion to The Monstrumologist series. The publishers may have had the right idea initially canceling his contract after The Isle of Blood. Admittedly I would still have been disappointed not to know how Will Henry's story ended but I would have gotten over it. It would have been preferable to where I find myself now.In this final installment the author takes the likeable character that was Will Henry and corrupts and twist him un [...]

    I love this series. I. LOVE. THIS. SERIES. The end of this book is heartbreaking!It is so odd knowing what happens to our protagonist from the very beginning but not knowing the how, the why, and even, THE WHO? This series is written from the author's take on a set of journals he is given by a senior citizens home looking for any family or friends or anybody they can contact over the death of a Mr. William James Henry. The opening chapter and the end chapter of each book is in the perspective of [...]

    Darkness has always been the theme of the series, but in The Final Descent that darkness is taken who a whole new level.We are vain and arrogant, evolution's highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self-awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us. But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything. There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere-and nowhere. We are no [...]

    Wellis is the 200th book on my to-read shelf. Does that deserve a party? Well, where Will Henry is involved, I'm quite certain something needs celebrating. That boy is as dour as flour. Haha, see what I did there? I rhymed, that's what I did. So this comes out a week after my birthday, or is now scheduled to come out a week after my birthday, in 2013. Please reschedule it to a week earlier, please reschedule it to a week earlier. I would love to have the next installment in one of my favorite se [...]

    I've been trying to read this for weeks and I can't do it. The series is fantastic, I recommend it, but this last one is just a disjointed mess of scenes where characters act unrecognisable. I'm not torturing myself any longer when this series would have deserved a much better conclusion, that makes sense and doesn't just pull apart everything that got built so far. I'm really not going to put more effort into this. Sorry.

    “Beginnings are endingsAnd all endings are the same.Time is a line.But we are circles” (excerpt from The Final Descent)The haunting and tragic conclusion to The Monstrumologist series opens with a broker seeking out Dr. Warthrop in order to sell him the greatest find in human generations, the keystone of all things monstrumological—T. cerrejonensis, a highly venomous reptilian creature thought to be extinct for over a century, the last of its kind—but Warthrop dismisses it is as a fraud [...]

    “To hell with all of youTo hell with monsters and to hell with men. There is no difference to me.”I was wrong. In my review of The Isle of Blood, I said that Yancey better dial back the introspection for the final installment and give us more monsters instead. However, The Final Descent is far from the tightly woven monster hunts of the first two books, and it is deathly brilliant. But maybe Yancey did give me what I wanted. He gave me monsters. Just not in the shapes I was expecting.Will He [...]
