Amazing series

Once again Cameo takes us through the adventures of Abi as she journeys by herself to find a safe home for herself, Finn(her fiance) and family, in the apocalyptic world of arvies. As her "curse" strengthens, she struggles with learning how to control it. Cameo also introduces a new character Danielle. All in all an amazing series! Can't wait for book 5!

4.5 stars!

I have to be honest and start by saying that I could only vaguely remember what had happened in the last book in this series! I did read it over a year ago though lol! The author did write a little bit about what happened in the last book at the beginning of this book, which helped a lot! It helped me remember more about what had happened and where the last book had ended! I also won an ebook of this book from the author, so I started this book as soon as I received my copy and I had s

Hope and Hellfire – What a combination!

There are a lot of books and movies out there about existence after the Apocalypse. One thing they usually have in common is the struggle for those who survived the fallout to stay alive, some of the survivors no longer close to anything that resembles a human being. What I like about this book is the author follows that theme but puts a deeper emotional spin on the story.

WOW, I hate to say this, but I think this is the best one yet! I read the entire book in like, 6 hours, I just couldn't stop. After everything Abi has already been through, and everything her and Finn have been through, it's not over. My heart ached for her the entire book, and I was so impressed with how she reacted and handled everything. All the new characters we got to meet and the new things we learned, craziness! I loved all the new characters we met, and the visits from the ones we know a ...more
My Bookbag by Karen
Before the After Light Saga, I never even considered reading dystopian literature. Thankfully, I was already a fan of author Cameo Renae’s work. Therefore, I decided to give the After Light Saga a try. Now, I can honestly say I am a true fan.

Cameo has such an excellent way of weaving a story full of excitement and danger, while still creating complex characters that steal my heart. Abi is such a strong heroine, badass to the core. She is also one half of a soul. The other half is Finn, (who I se

I have been anxiously and very impatiently awaiting book four of The Afterlight Saga! This book did not disappoint. I picked right back up to Abigail Parks trying to control her newly found gift and trying to figure out how to best protect her family. She thinks she has one choice which is to go rogue and use her mind to help her reach safety. But what will the cost be?

I really want to word vomit right here everything that happens but I also do not want to ruin the book for you. I can tell you t

Abi and Hellfire are back! Lots of Arvy action too! This is an awesome addition to The After Light Saga. Why hasn't this series been picked up by a movie director?!? Why?!?

In the fourth book of The After Light Saga Abi is wanted from the government bunker she and her family fled from...because she was given syrums that developed her gift into something greater. Something that can make her destroy an Arvy with a single thought. She ends up running away and gets captured by the bunkers soldiers.

Holy smokes! This book was a whirlwind of action. Hostile is the fourth instalment in the After Light Saga, and doesn't disappoint. I loved the tender moments between Abi and Finn and the gory Arvie killing action! It was a bit more graphic than previous books, so younger readers please be aware. This didn't stop my enjoyment at all. In fact, i loved it the most out of the rest of the series. Especially the loopy mind walk thing. i'm glad to know this is not the end! ...more

Recommends it for: YA, Dystopian, Strong female lead
Recommended to Jennifer by: Cameo
Another gem by Cameo Renae. This Dystopian novel is action-packed, suspenseful, and dramatic. The government is after Abi, who they have enhanced and believe is their only chance at survival, and they will kill anyone who gets in their way. So, Abi must leave behind those she loves in order to keep them safe. She must set out in this hostile environment with only her heart, training, Hellfire, and Venge - which could destroy her along with her enemies.

OMG!! TALK ABOUT HELLFIRE ACTION!!! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME READ!!! Fast paced cause of all the action. To see Abi,Finn and the rest of the crew back as well as HELLFIRE was great. More ARVies getting their butts kicked!! Cameo did a wonderful job on this book. I think this is my favorite in the series. As soon as I was done reading I said to my husband I need book 5 NOW!!!! A MUST READ SERIES!!!

Actual rating 1.5 stars.

Again, another book in this series that really isn't a novel - more like a tale... the middle part of something happening.

I found ‘Hostile’ awfully spoony and over-ridden with typical YA tropes. Instances of bad grammar and immature writing. I was hoping this series would get better as the author got to hone her craft, but it is just getting repetitive with the same kind of underdeveloped writing style.

The concept is still full of potential, but feel like the author sho

Hostile is the fourth book in the Afterlight Saga and one of the things I love is that the books all directly roll on from one another without distraction or break. At the end of Intransigent, Abi and her family had escaped the bunker and found themselves falling into the generous hands of Billy who invited them to join him and his hive. WIth Milton on the mend, Abi is able to finish her course of treatments, a goal she is desperate to realise as she knows that she’s on borrowed time until she i ...more

Abigail Park has a gift. She can communicate and harm the Arvies like no one else which makes her the most wanted person in the world and one of the strongest. Because of that, no matter how much she loves her family and especially her fiancé, the gorgeous Finn, she had to leave them behind in order to protect them. It's one of the most difficult​ decision she had to make.
​Not long after she left them she got caught by people from her previous bunker. Their mission is to find her and bring her b

About a 4.5 for me, but ooo I really liked this one. It was full of adventure and you get to see her without additional aid, and having to deal with the enemy? Who doesn't like seeing people turn for the better lol I did miss her family and Finn after everything they went through to stick together, but at the same time, I totally enjoyed seeing her powers grow. The different soldiers and Arvies she dealt with were just as

Abi the bad-ass, kick-ass girl now has some extra problems, the government is after her for running away, well escaping and she has a monster that's been unleashed inside her mind by the experimental drug the government forced on her. On top of this there are of course the Arvies. Abi takes off on her own thinking to save Finn and her family, but who will save her. More nail biting action that had me reading nonstop. ...more

What a tough girl our Abi is. And of course her Finn is just perfect in every way. The drama is high with finding a survivor and fighting to survive.
I received an eARC of this book via Lady Amber's Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Holy Smokes!! This book is the long awaited forth novel in the After Light Saga and man the stories get better and better! You'll seriously be turning page after page wanting to know what happens next and if they'll survive an Arvy attack. Oh and of course a reader will just swoon when it comes to Finn in this book.

I enjoyed this book. It was great catching up with Abi and Finn. My love for these two characters grows with each book. I believe this book is my favorite yet in the series. Hostile took a new direction that brought in several new characters, one with great potential to maybe help save the world. All were well-written and made for a good cast. Hostile was full of action, suspense, and frustration. Very fast-paced, nicely written; you can't put the book down once you start.

Oh. Fin and Abi, love them to death!

This opens up with both of them in a heated moment and I love it!

Sometimes you feel that their spark decreases when couples finally are together, but with these two, they seem to always have that great connection.

Once again, Abi needs to make the decision on being alone and protecting her family, especially Finn.

Then this goes straight into action, she’s trying to survive on her own, avoiding the desert heat and the Arvies, but then meets

As with the other books in this saga it is written from Abi's POV. This was another great instalment for this Saga. With the Government closing in on their position Abi feels she needs to leave in order to protect Finn, her family and friends. So she sneaks out in search of her Grammy.

I really enjoyed this book we got to meet some new allies and some old friends. We also got to see just how strong Abi has become and I think her powers are still growing. I was a little annoyed about the whole " i
