I haven't read the previous two books even though this is not a stand alone. I didn't have any problem but I am sure I missed something about the world the book is set. Also I can't compare it to the other books. I was wrong when I thought I couldn't pick sides in the triangle. I liked Liam and I thought Calvin was cold and distant. As usual I did not liked the female character, Charlotte, but Samantha was good. What I liked was the way the triangle problem was solved. It was a little c
What kind of crap ending was THAT?!

I mean, okay. Here's what I think. Pardon the spoilers. So, if Calvin is going to sacrifice himself, I think it should have been played up a bit more. I mean, he just committed suicide so Charlotte wouldn't have to. Let's give the guy some credit, mmmk? Let's not just jump into Liam's arms all willy-nilly. Oh sure, you SAY that your love will always hold a place in your heart, but I'm not convinced. And I'm not convinced your relationship with Liam is all that

This was an extremely well written book that I enjoyed from beginning to end and could not put down.

It moved along at a very good pace, had interesting characters and a storyline that kept you entertained.

Alyssa Rose Ivy is a very talented author, whose work transports you away from your everyday life. I look forward to reading a lot more from this talented author in the future.

An enjoyable read.

"You can have all the time you want. I've been in love with you for longer than I can remember, and I'll be in love with you until the day we die. I can give you space, I can give you time, I can give you everything."

I went through many emotional stages while reading this book. I shall list them in no particular order: shock, fear, hate, denial, love, hurt, trauma, hysteria, and many, many tears. Yes tears, you know those wet dro
{my thoughts} – This book is a wonderful conclusion to the Afterglow Trilogy. Charlotte and Kevin have come a long ways since they had accepted their roles as important individuals in Energo. Liam and Calvin are both having a hard time staying sane of mind when they are around Charlotte because they both love her an incredible amount, however only one can she truly be with.

In this book it is up to Charlotte and Kevin to save Energo from Blake, James father. Blake is a bad person who wants to do

Enduring Light is now available. :)
Enduring Light is the last installment for The Afterglow Trilogy featuring the end of the dark era, and the beginning of the main characters happily ever after. This book will follow the timeline from book 2, Perilous Light, and introduce a different concept, therefore a different type of ending.

For those who like double POV will be surprise with an addition to the storytelling. You can check it out through my snapshots. But either way, what may trouble you is the introduction of a new characte
I'll try to keep this as spoiler free for the series as possible. It has been over a year since I read the first two books so it was a little slow in the beginning for me until I fell in love with Energo and the characters all over again. Energo is another realm in which Charlotte, her brother Kevin, and their best friend Liam traveled into. In this world Charlotte has great power and is the essence. Liam and Kevin are on her guard and her Gerard is Calvin. Blake is the big bad. For a fantasy th ...more

It is here, it is finally here! I have been waiting for Enduring Light since Perilous Light came out last March! The Afterglow trilogy holds a special place in my heart because this series is the one that introduced me to Alyssa Rose Ivy, and my minor ok maybe major obsession with everything she writes. Beckoning Light, the very first book in the Afterglow Trilogy, also was my second review request ever received shortly after I started Unabridged Bookshelf almost two years ago. I still cannot be ...more

It had been a long time, I did not read a book and lived his story in itself. It may sound crazy, but I actually went through all the emotions and the characters!

I had fun with taunts Kevin, James and Liam, I cried too at times most striking (so to speak .. lol), I felt mortal hatred and anger by Blake, distress in every round faced.

This story takes place in current times in our world and in Energo, which is in another dimension and habits medieval and magical as well.

Enough but the problems tha
Well, I've read worse. So the action seems were rushed and clumsy. And then, The love scenes- eeeww. So our girl is all I really don't like all this PDA and I might be in love with this other dude. So obviously the solution is to have sex with the guy that makes u uncomfortable. Um, ok? As a parent reading this book, I was all what? No! Are u serious!? Dude put u in a cell in last book. It's ok, all is forgiven. We are soul mates cause the "source" says so. aaaaaaaahhhhhh. grrrrr. my inner woman ...more

This is not a trilogy that gets better as it goes. Each book is worse than the one that comes before it. The pacing is off, there are huge holes in plot and character development, and the tone remains that of a very young writer. It wasn't worth buying.

This book focuses on defeating Blake once and for all, but requires a scavenger hunt for magical items before the showdown begins. There's a completely stupid section where Monty and Kevin's dad disappear and then just reappear with little explana

So I liked it. Liked how it ended, & it didn't drag on, but it feels like there's something missing. Too many loose ends, lots of possibilities of spin off's...similar to the iron fey series, or the Eden trilogy.
Jillian Ridall
I never liked Calvin. Liam always won my heart. I'm glad he won Charlotte 's. Overall I'm glad he won in the end. I'm glad Charlotte found her mother and now her world is truly set right.
Kinda glad this series is over. I enjoyed it, but it felt rushed here at the end. I am very glad the main character ended up with the character she did. I couldn't stand the other one.
not the ending I was expecting. .. everytHing was wrapped up quickly and messy with too many loose ends.
Very slow read but overall excited that she got both guys
Stacy Hortaridis
Loved the series. Not too happy with the end.
