Luckily for Brennan, The Demon's Lexicon bears almost no resemblance to anything Harry Potter so I give myself full licence to enjoy this book. I felt like the characterization of Nick, the main protagonist, was really, really refreshing. Not once did Nick seem frightening to me although she clearly intended him to be that way. He is more like a boy who has shut himself away because of his past and now tries to scare others off from coming close to him, not letting himself feel anything for them.

I first picked up The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan in 2009 when I went to an all Sarah book signing at Books of Wonder. Brennan was extremely funny and made a great case for her book and I had every intention of getting to it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it kept getting pushed to the back burner as other reading obligations came up.

The Goblin Market has always been the center of Sin’s world. But now the Market is at war with the magicians, and Sin’s place is in danger. Thrown out of the Market she loves, Sin is thrown together with brothers Nick and Alan—whom she’s always despised. Alan has been marked by a magician and is being tortured so that the magicians can get to Nick. As Sin watches Alan struggle to protect the demon brother he loves, she begins to see him in a new light—but she and Mae are locked in a fierce rivalry over who will inherit the leadership of the Goblin Market, and a decisive battle with the Aventurine Circle is looming. Mae’s brother, Jamie, is holed up with the magicians, his loyalties in question. And Nick—well, who knows what a demon might do to save his brother? How far will Nick go to save Alan—and what will it cost them all? Find out in this gripping conclusion to the trilogy Scott Westerfeld says is “full of shimmery marvels and bountiful thunder.”
I read this as a standalone book, because I was not aware of any prior books, so I have no problem with the POV the author uses. In fact, I love Sin as a narrator and heroine. I've read several Romance/Urban Fantasy novels with female characters who are either completely useless (constant damsel in distress), or are faux action girls who are looked at with admiration for their cunning strength that's always stated but hardly present during the action of the story. So, I was thrilled by the character Sin/Cynthia: She's dynamic, doesn't look like the stereotypical action heroine, and makes more adult decisions than many of the adults.

I really liked the book because even with the Fantasy story line, I could genuinely see and imagine people doing the things that are being mentioned. Especially when it comes to navigating relationships (familial and otherwise), defining those relationships and boundaries, and sometimes being let down/frustrated by said relationships. I also liked how Brennan deals with race, class, disability, and supernatural beings, all in one go! I know some people might not care about this aspect of the book, but as a minority reader I love reading books in which I can see myself--like everyone does.

The biggest plus for me was that there were actual consequences to everyone's behavior, and the characters in the novel have genuine issues that are addressed. I adored the ending because while it wrapped things up for the characters, it wasn't the standard "everything works out for all"-ending.
I disagree that the point of view ruined this book. It didn't, not completely. I liked Sin alright, she was dynamic and interesting, but compared to Alan, Mae, Nick, and Jamie, she can't win. Taking this point of view was a challenge, mainly because in order to include all the facts that are needed, Sin does a lot of creepy stalking in the shadows. More often than not, there's an entire scene in which Sin is watching interactions from outside a door without voicing a thought in her head and you forget that it's from her point of view.

Also, there were some loose plot threads. For example, you see Jamie from Sin's eyes, and all of his struggles are shrugged off because Sin has written him off as a magician gone to the dark side. Mae (lovable Mae whom I fell in love with in The Demon's Covenant)is a rival and is viewed in a not so nice light, and the interactions with Alan were just flat (not Alan himself, but Sin because she's not so dynamic). Plus you never really find out what becomes of Sin's little sister and brother, other than "they live happily ever after" together. I was interested in that bit (though it was a hugely side plot) and I got nothing.

Was it a good book by itself? Yes. Was it a good companion book to the series? Yeah, more or less. Was it a good way to end an awesome action-packed and witty trilogy? No. If this book was a stand alone, in addition to a book with no Sin POV, I think people would like it more. As it is, I don't believe becoming experimental in side characters at the end of a three or so year trilogy with very vocal fans was the greatest choice. However, I enjoyed the book, even if it wasn't quite up to par.

If you enjoyed The Demon's Lexicon and Covenant, pick up this book. But I'd wait for a price drop because there's a high chance you'll be a little disappointed and paying too much for it will fuel your frustrations.

As with Demon's Covenant I was really wary about the POV changed that occurs with Demon's Surrender perhaps even more so this time since I had liked Mae going into Covenant and didn't really know what I thought of Sin prior to Surrender. I shouldn't have worried though as Brennan has once again provided me with an amazing story that I hated to have end. While I didn't like being in Sin's head as much as Mae's or Nick's I did still like seeing the story from her perspective. I enjoyed learning more about her and what makes her tick and this book changed my opinion of her entirely. I think that parts of her story were a little predictable but I don't really mind that. I am glad that certain events happened because sometimes you really just need for things to work out.

As with the previous two books there is lots of action and humor packed into this story. The events pick up shortly after Covenant ends and all the story lines from the previous books are wrapped up nicely. What's nice though is there there is still enough left for the reader to imagine and hope that there might be more set in this world. But at the same time it all ends so perfectly that even if that never happens (which probably won't) then the reader is left satisfied with how things ended up. Nick and Jamie's scenes also continue to be my favorite and my one complaint is that there weren't enough of them in this book. Though I probably wouldn't be satisfied if Brennan wrote an entire book of just Jamie and Nick interacting so I'm probably not a good judge of just how much they were in the book.

Of the three books in the series, Demon's Surrender isn't my favorite (that belongs to Demon's Covenant) but I still enjoyed it and the series wouldn't be the same without this installment. This book also fully cemented my love for Sarah Rees Brennan's writing and I can't wait until the next thing she comes up with. If you haven't checked out her books yet then what are you waiting for? They are filled with smart, witty writing, believable characters that you fall in love with and some really amazing story ARCs. I'm a total fan girl for life and I can't believe I waited so long to read her stuff. Although I am glad at the same time I was able to devour all books in the series at once. That waiting between books can be such a killer!
