Era da tanto che aspettavo questo romanzo, da quando la Newton ne aveva sospeso la pubblicazione. Avevo adorato i primi due romanzi della serie Envy chronicles e quindi potete immaginare la mia gioia quando l'autrice, che ama molto il pubblico italiano, ha deciso di farlo tradurre e di autopubblicarlo su amazon. Gioia pura.
Questo terzo capitolo ci svela alcuni grandi segreti che si celano nella ricca sottotrama che accompagna la storia della coppia principale. Ritroviamo personaggi che ho molto

The third book in the Post-Apocalyptic world created by Joss Ware, was a little difficult to get into. But by the middle of the book it picked up a lot and became completely engrossing. The main difficulty is with the two main characters that this installment centers on. We have met them before - Zoe was 8 when the end of the world came and a young teenager when her family was killed by gangas (zombie like creatures). She has been hunting them ever since as well as the man who unleashed them on ...more

This third installment of Ware's post-apocalyptic series is, I'm sad to say, my least favorite so far. Which is a shame because I really loved the interactions between Quent and Zoe in the previous books. Quent's frustration with Zoe's actions mirrored my own. I like that she's such a strong kick ass heroine but her constant abandonment of Quent grated on my nerves.

I felt really bad for Quent in this book. Zoe bolted every chance she could get, even when she was doing what she thought was right

This is the hottest book in the series so far! Quent and Zoe have already had a few encounters in the previous books, so their relationship involves a lot of hot sex from the start of this book. What they really have to work on is trusting each other enough to work together and possibly build a life together.

Quent's only goal is to find his father and kill him for his role in the "evolution." Zoe is bent on finding the bounty hunter that killed her family and get revenge on him. Despite their di

Abandon the Night
Joss Ware
Quent gets his girl. Zoe is certainly more than a handful. Hunting the zombies, she’s kick butt and strong. She even makes her own weapons. Both of them are out for revenge. Quent is out to get his father who abused him as a child and now leads the Strangers. Zoe is out for blood. She’ll do anything to kill the man who set the zombies after her home settlement and killed her whole family.

I finished Abandon the Night in one day. I couldn't put it down. So many questions I had before get answered and are replaced with a whole bunch of new ones I can;'t wait to discover. Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better...

I really didn't know what to think of Quent from the very beginning. Now that I have finished, I got to say I love him. Sassy and angry is my overwhelming impression of him. As his story is revealed, I totally got it. Zoe I at first thought was more feral th

I think this is my favorite so far in the series. I liked Zoe and Quent. Zoe is a tough nut to crack. She is emotionally distant, where as Quent is the pursuer. Lots of series/storyline development. I can't wait to see what is next.

Envy Chronicles Book Three.

Quent is bent on taking down his father, one of the leaders of the Strangers. Zoe seeks revenge against Raul Marck for the death of her family. Together the two set out to conquer their enemies and, in some respects, their pasts. When they reach their destination, Quent learns more about the mysterious Cult of Atlantis and what that really means for the new world.

Narration: Sebastian Fields narrates the series with an amazing consistency. His voices are distinguishable

In this book, the third in the series, we finally begin to understand the inner workings of the strangers, and who they are.

It turns out that the ring leader so to speak, is Quent's father. Once he discovers this, he wants nothing more than to hunt him down and kill him... well, aside from holding Zoe's arrows hostage so he can get a little time between the sheets with her!

This book was a little slower and harder to get into than the previous two - but once you get about halfway it picks up an

Originally posted at Vampire Book Club

In 2010, Quentin Fielding had pretty much all he could desire: women, money, power. The lack of his father’s approval was the furthest thing on his mind. In fact, he got more pleasure out of antagonizing the older Fielding whenever possible. His own rebellion so to speak. To say Quent is shocked when he and his friends wake up in a cave in Sedona 50 years in the future to discover the world has been destroyed is putting it mildly.

Paranormal Romance
As the son the man who destroyed the world, the hero wants nothing more than to kill his father for what he's done. The heroine is a bad ass zombie killer who lives for nothing but the quest to kill the man responsible for the death of her family. The two have been involved in a sexual affair for a few weeks now. At first it was nothing more than the scratching of an itch as both the hero and heroine are convinced that the other has multiple partners but as it turns out they are more devoted to ...more
Abandon the Night
4 Stars

Series Note: This is the third book in the Envy Chronicles series and it is essential to read in order as Quent and Zoe’s relationship begins in book #1 and develops from there.

The post-apocalyptic world building is fascinating and the descriptions of a society coping with the day to day struggles of life in a hostile environment are gripping. Nevertheless, the romantic elements in this series don’t quite live up to expectations, and this is particularly true of Quent an

ABANDON THE NIGHT by Harper Collins, 2010

Abandon the Night by Joss Ware is a spell bounding 368 page turning fantasy romance novel set in the future. As the story begins with an abusive tension between Quent and his father, Parris Fielding, the reader is immediately drawn into the dramatic life of the main character -Quent. Joss Ware germinates the story with sharp details like the nape of Quent’s neck and active verbs that stand alone like, Sna

The post-apocalyptic drama of the Envy Chronicles continues in this third installment, featuring Quent & Zoe. Quent is on a mission to find his father, who was one of the men responsible for the near-destruction of the Earth. Quent and four other men are living 50 years in the future. They had been trapped in some AZ caves in 2010 when the "Change" happened and spent five decades in stasis. When they emerged from the caves, they had not aged at all, but each of the men had developed a specia ...more

But like the old adage says money can’t buy love and that couldn’t have been truer for Quent. He lived in a loveless home with a dad that was always ready to smack him around whenever it pleased him.

My Review:
How can these books continue to get better and better when they started out phenomenally?!?! Quentin was an original part of the group that had been hiking in Sonoma when the apocalypse happened. He was a billionaire playboy trying to escape the shadow of his father's overwhelming dominance. The book starts when Quent was 17 being beaten by his father with a riding crop. At that time, he had the means to kill him, but chose not to, not knowing that his father would be instrumental in t
4.5 stars

I must say that I have partially love Quent and Zoë ever since the two of them first met in book #1. The whole teaser in book #2 makes me having expectation to this one. And boy, the book does deliver! So yeah, the best thing in book #3 are the two main characters.

There is this vulnerability in Quent, that is just adorable for me. I don't come across a lot of characters in romance where he is strong but at the same time vulnerable. That is usually the female beha

This is what Joss Ware’s series the Envy Chronicles did to me. It made me think and sent my imagination into a hundred different often disparate directions. Ms. Ware can write. The world she has created is intense, creative and thought provoking; and although the series scares the bejessus out of me because it took my mind in directions I hadn’t previously pondered, I’m hooked. Yes, it’s a romance and in each book she gives you a great romantic tale with a hero and heroine you can embrace, but f ...more

After book 2 in this series I was really getting into it. Then I made the mistake of reading some reviews for Abandon the Night and was worried. This couple was introduced in the first book and though minor I really liked their chemistry, so after reading some of them I was worried.

Abandon the Night was funny and reminded me of my husband and me our first year together. Oh not the rich playboy and street smart tough girl part - but the butting heads constantly thing. Quent wants to protect Zoe a

I loved and enjoyed the awesome, extraordinary, amazing, suspenseful audio version of Abandon the Night, by Joss Ware, Colleen Gleason that I received free from the author, Colleen Gleason.
Quen's goal is to kill the person who caused the chaos and destruction, his father. Zoe realizes that she loves Quen and does not want him to go through the guilt of killing his own father and devises a plan to protect Quen. Quen loves Zoe and wants her nowhere near his father or the ruthless people surroundin

This is Quent's story. Ware does a good job of writing the characters so that they are distinct and have their own development. I've been curious to learn more about Quent and his father, and what exactly is going on.
Not as disappointing as the previous books. I guess there's just not enough mythology (as in things that have happened in the past and we the reader are privy to) to really have me interested.

I liked Quent and Zoe okay. I didn't think the ending was very spectacular. I am glad I read it but don’t think I will catch the other books in the series.
