    1. HOOKED HOOKED HOOKED I'm so hooked to this series, but that's hardly the half of it. Ferrett continues to shock and amaze and simply improve upon everything he's accomplished so far.So. As of right now, I'm positively quaking from the need to just rave and gush and talk about all the spoilers that I'm super obsessed on, where I obsess so much that I start 'Mancing about a book about 'Mancing.Look. I'm sorry. The book hasn't been published yet, and all I want to do is tell everyone just how spoil [...]


    2. "You gotta save the world for the right reasons, Paul."I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ferrett Steinmetz's Flex series is one of the most imaginative and unique urban fantasies I've encountered. The trilogy takes place in a world where people's passionate, obsessive belief actually has the ability to warp reality to match their internal vision. As the book puts it: If you believed with a diamond-hard conviction the universe should act in a certain way, sometimes it did. You didn't mea [...]


    3. (Full review here: bibliotropic/2016/09/13/f)So do I recommend this series? Hell yes! To one and all! It’s a powerful story, a take on magic and obsession that crosses boundaries and paints new pictures of a reality that could have been and could yet be. It’s a brilliant piece of urban fantasy, and adventure that stays with you long after the last page has been read and the cover closed, and Steinmetz has done something great here. The characters are beautiful and flawed, the writing tight, [...]


    4. This is a book that read like Ferret Steinmetz knew where he was taking his audience from the time he started writing and I love to find that in a series. So many feel like the author starts with a strong idea and then that gets lost a few books in. Thankfully, there is none of that here.Admittedly, I may be looking at this through rose-colored lenses because I loved the first two books so much.I loved the twists that Paul's character took in this book. He goes from being literally a paper-pushe [...]


    5. Three chapters into Fix, everything is already terrible, so that should give you an indication of how bad things actually get in this book.Paul and Imani want to give Aliyah a shot at a normal life, but it becomes very clear (see above re: first three chapters) that such a life is not in the stars. Before you can say "Where the hell did the laws of physics go?" our favorite 'mancer family is on the run from SMASH, led by the determined General Kanakia. The first quarter of the book is full of ex [...]


    6. סגירה מצויינת לסדרה. קצת קשה לי לכתוב עליו ביקורת כי הספר הזה לא חף מבעיות. יש קטעים שכתובים לא ברור ויש חלקים שלא חוברו טוב אחד אל השני ויש מקומות שהוא רץ מהר מדי או זז לאט מדי, אבל הספר הזה הוא טוב. הוא איכותי. הדמויות אנושיות, גם כאשר עומד לרשותן כוח כמעט בלתי מוגבל. הוא מצליח ל [...]


    7. lynns-books/2016/09/01/fiFix is the final instalment of Ferrett Steinmetz’s Mancer series and brings to a conclusion a story that I’ve found totally absorbing and unique.I think for this particular review I’m not really going to delve too much into the story. I don’t want to give anything away and I’m going to make the assumption that you’ve read the previous two books in the series. If not, well then, I strongly suggest, nay implore, you to do so. I also recommend not reading furthe [...]


    8. Sometimes reading slumps happen. I had been on a reading slump for months on end when I saw Fix on a shelf at my favourite bookshop. I bought it instead of lunch that day.That was two weeks ago. I had to portion out time to read it. Carefully measure it out on public trasit. This morning I was about halfway through, and I broke down and devoured the rest this evening.These books are glorious. These are time-eating, bad-day-fixing, meal-forgettingly good books. I loved Flex, and adored Flux, but [...]


    9. An attempt acclimatize to normalcy doesn't pan out for 13yro Aliyah who just wants to live the life of a typical 13yrd old teen; playing soccer with her friends and enjoying the company of the non-magical inclined. However, her brief attempt at ‘fitting in’ leads to disaster as her mancy consumers her, resulting in her being kidnapped by the Unimancers and opening a breach to another world. Series protagonist and Bureaucromancer Paul Tsabo seems to have heightened abilities in Fix as his obs [...]


    10. I was so excited to get this ARC from Netgalley, but by chapter 14? I had to take a break for a bit to send a tweet out to Mr. Ferrett about how my heart wasn't able to take much more. Both previous novels, while dark in spots, had an overall tone of levity to them. Not pure comedy, of course, but there were a lot of light spots. This book is pretty grim from start to finish. I loved the fact that Unimancers figured a lot more prominently in this book, and all the characters were gifted more dev [...]


    11. Some books you read because you have nothing else to do. Not this one. This is a book that makes you read it--while eating, on the toilet, even if the TV is on. I love everything about this whole series and it seriously needs to be made into movies.


    12. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3.5 of 5The third book in Ferrett Steinmetz's 'Mancy series. I haven't been a big fan of the first two books, but I went in to this determined to see in it what others have found so appealing. I didn't succeed, but I did find this book to be a tad more interesting than the other two.'Mancy is a magic that draws on a person's obsession. If you are someone who loves to play videogames, then you might become a videogamemancer like t [...]


    13. First of all let's get this out of the way, though this is a review of Fix it's more a review of the triology. To start off Flex by Ferrett is the best Urban Fantasy to come out in the last few years and well worth a Hugo or Nebula. Why? Valentine. She carries the triology with effortlessness, fat, sexy and nerdy just like we like it. Valentine alone is worth reading the three books. However, when I hear others talk about the books I hear words like 'mancy and world building and I kind of stop a [...]


    14. *copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review*Fix is the conclusion of the ‘Mancer trilogy by Ferrett Steinmetz. I’ve enjoyed the series so far, so the conclusion had rather large shoes to fill. Generally speaking, it manages to match, and in some cases exceed, my rather high expectations.The world of Fix feels a little different to that of Flux, its immediate predecessor. Here we’re slowly seeing the rise of a legitimate front for the issue of rights for ‘Mancers. They’ve spun out of [...]


    15. They just get better!When reading a series, one always wonders if the last book will compare to the first. I needn't have worried. If anything, these books have gotten better, become stronger and sucked me even deeper into the story line as I read! Bravo, Ferrett!! You have created a trilogy that is so vibrant I see the colors and smell the smells, I feel the anguish and my heart pounds with each victory. I cannot wait to see the movies that are eventually made based on your books!!!


    16. Thought this was a really solid read. The series really hooked me with its magic system right off the bat and this third installment, going back over to cover the tantalizing story of the big broach that devoured Europe was fantastic. And the family dynamic? Between Paul, Imani, and Aaliyah? Loved it. Sad that this trilogy is over, but I'd be very much looking forward to more in this universe if Steinmetz wanted to continue along.


    17. Flex was an explosion into a new kind of magic and a new world. Flux was - as befits the title - the backlash of that new magic and its effects on real people. Fix is fix is what happens when we learn, sometimes learning well and sometimes learning poorly. Fix is what happens when we don't look back, and when we do. Fix is a damn good romp and a heartbreaking heart-healing magical adventure. I'm exhausted and elated from reading it. I think Valentine would approve.


    18. The final book in the 'Mancer trilogy, this one was harder for me to read. I spent a lot of time in the early part of the book reading a single chapter then putting it down (often for long stretches) because the plot kept taking turns that I didn't want it to take. It was harrowing and depressing. Then at about the three quarter mark, I just couldn't put it down. The last act was still pretty harrowing but Steinmetz had reminded me why I loved these characters in the first place.


    19. Thank you for sending me this book. This is the third book in a series, the first two being “Flex” and “The Flux”. I felt that if I had read the first two books, I would have got into this book quicker. With some books that are part of a series, you can read one as a stand alone, but with this series, I don’t think you can.


    20. An excellent wrap upIt took me awhile to finish this series. It's a very good read, but the author really put his emotion into creating his characters, so watching them face the tribulations they each did made me struggle to get through some chapters.But everything ended as spectacularly as each character deserved!


    21. The 'Mancer series is a series I fell into half way through, picking it up with book 2 (The Flux) rather than book 1 (Flex). But I loved it that much I went back to the beginning and listened to Flex, even though I knew what happened. When The Fix arrived on NetGalley I HAD to find out how this series ended, and after a few painful long weeks I was finally approved.Reading The Fix was new to me, although I know this world and characters, I have only ever listened to the books, so reading it was [...]


    22. This book made me care about a doughnut.I'm not talking about, like, the doughnut itself is a character. That would be silly. But a crucial plot point that might actually be a minor spoiler is that at one point, someone's choice of doughnut actually mattered. It's the focus of a moment of genuine human compassion and introspection. It's important to the plot. Critically so, at the time.I guess what I'm saying is that any author who can make me cry over someone picking a pastry has some skills, y [...]


    23. 'Fix' is a solid ending to one of my new favorite authors' breakout trilogy. Please note, you MUST read the first two books or you WILL be losing out and probably very confused. I actually appreciate when an author demands some loyalty into a series by not explaining EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of each character in depth again for people that randomly pick up the middle of the series. Thank you, Mr. Steinmetz, for not punishing the reader that has started in logical order in the hopes of placating those [...]


    24. *Free book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This world is completely fascinating to me. I love the idea that our greatest hobbies, the things we can lose ourselves in for hours, can become our form of magic (bibliomancers unite!). Seemingly useless skills like a knack with forms, kite flying and even rock balancing, can have magical traits that allow you to do some really interesting things. Unfortunately, magic comes at a cost, called flux, and it presents itself as serious bad lu [...]


    25. So I originally tried to ration this book out. But Fix was a lot faster-paced than the previous installments of the series-- I wound up abandoning my "only read it while walking on the treadmill so I have an incentive to exercise" plan and, while I haven't been back on a treadmill in a week, I finished that book! Fix is an even-speedier, even-smoother thrill ride than the previous two entries. This does a great job bringing the series to a good close, taking everything about the world-building a [...]


    26. Aliyah Tsabo-Dawson just wants to be a 13 year old kid. Unfortunately, she's a Videogamemancer, and her and her family are perpetually on the run from the government backed agency SMASH--an anti-'mancer force that captures and enslaves rogue 'mancers, turning them into Unimancers.Aliyah convinces her parents to let her play soccer on team like a normal kid, so her father Paul Tsabo (a Bureacromancer wanted by SMASH) finds the perfect place for her to do it: a small town in Kentucky that's just f [...]


    27. Having now gone through all three of the Mancer books, it's interesting not only to see the growth of the stories, but also how well this ties all the tales together. This is a book about more than just saving the world or saving your daughter, but also has a lot to do with sacrifice, and it's handled in such a great, adept way that it's hard not to consider this one of the better reads of late in this genre.The book jumps forward in time a bit, and we have our protagonists from the previous boo [...]


    28. I was wondering when Ferrett would finally get around to using [[spoiler redacted]]-mancy, and it turns out my exact thought is the crux to the novel's finale - so, well done as always Ferrett, if you want to write more books in the future I'll keep telling "take my money, please!"


    29. I really oscillated between 3 and 5 stars for this before I finally just split the difference. I love the author. I love the series. I love the characters. However two things made me like it less.(view spoiler)[First, chapter 30. I know this will make me sound like a prude and / or get me backlash. But this chapter was unnecessary - at least the beginning part - and immediately broke my immersion.I get what he was going for. But the delivery fell flat and I had to actually set the book down for [...]


    30. I've been reading this since the beginning of September. It is now the end of December. I am not 100% sure it is Ferrett's fault that I couldn't get into this novel as quickly and deeply as I did the other two (which I gave both 5 stars). Some of it was my mindset, and some of it was not wanting the series to end. But. I just didn't like this one as much as the others. I still liked it. And I enjoyed reading how it all turned out. But I didn't race through it, desperate to discover how it ended. [...]
