Review of 'That Hideous Strength' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This one really took some getting into after the last two in the series. I couldn't tell how it was part of the same series until about half way through.

By the end I was fully invested, and now I find myself sad that there will never be another book in the series. I'm not sure if I've ever read a series written by an author who has since died, but it's kind of sad.

Anyway, well worth reading!
