3 1/2 Stars. This is the third book in the Return to Earth series, if you include the novella, The Ground Beneath. Though there is also a prequel, that I have not read yet. I liked this quite a bit better than The Ground Beneath, but not as much as All Things Rise.
This book stars Ava, who we met in All Things Rise. Ava, is a hard character to like. She wants to be attached to nobody, but when others around her pair off, she becomes jealous. And while I didn't really care for her in Book 1, I fe

3.5 stars

I felt a little lost jumping in on this third book so I definitely recommend starting from the beginning. As I read more and the story threads came together things were easier to follow. I enjoyed the action but not so much all the politics. The chemistry between Ava and Leland was great and I also loved the glimpses of how the world had changed and why.

Received this book from Bold Strokes Books via netgalley for an honest review.

It's a bit daunting being the first person to write a review but I will try to be as helpful to other readers as I can be.

The Return to Earth series is based on quite an interesting concept and I really do think that there is room for a bit more development on the idea. The first book introduced us to Ava and if I am honest, I just didn't like her. I thought that that would change in this book but it didn't because I couldn't sta

My previous critique of the other two Vaun books I read was that she set up an amazing premise and then failed to fully utilize that premise, focusing too much on the romance between the main characters and not on the world building that seemed promising. The balance in this one is much better. There are some other flaws - the ending jams in a lot of action that hadn’t really been built up to, so it felt jarring, and the dialogue is often a bit stiff and formal, not what you’d expect to read bet ...more

I really enjoyed this read. It's the third book in the Return to Earth Series from Missouri Vaun. The characters were fun and kept the pages turning. The thing I like from this author is that she can take me away from the crazy world of reality into the future post apocalyptic world of romance and hope. I read fiction because it's fun and I enjoy the escape. Vaun certainly grabbed my attention with this one. ...more
