Book 3 is the culmination of this particular trilogy and it starts, and stays for a while, in some serious uncertainty as to what exactly Cain and Felicity are going to do. Not only is there still an angry vampire running around wanting to get Felicity, but the truth about Sindy is now another issue on the table. The biggest thing for Cain is that he wants Felicity to have a chance at a real life. Not one like him, hiding in the shadows and the darkness of night, moving often, and never having a ...more

Fantastic book! I was so enthralled with the entire series. It had such an unexpected ending, and I think it was so great how it ended. This third volume was the best of the series. She built the characters so well and so in-depth that I feel I really know them. Some other reviewers mentioned that it has a 'Twilight' feel and I do agree a little bit, but Melanie really has her own style. I absolutely loved how the story unfolded. I am so impressed with this series and I can't wait for her next t ...more

This book left me feeling so anxious to read the next one...I am really starting to feel that I know the characters so well, and can't wait to see what they chose next. Whilst the story is a little predictable, it's the emotion that Melanie conveys that really keeps you glued to the story and her character development is phenominal. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

Much better than the first two. I loved the twists and the ending was a bit of a shock.

I loved this volume as much as the first two. I was so happy to see that a fourth volume, Born to Blood will be coming out in the future. I can't wait, This series is EXCELLENT!

So, Cain bites Felicity in order to protect her from other vampires. It kind of reminded me of Bill Compton from True Blood claiming Sookie. Except instead of verbally saying it, he bites her and therefore seals the deal. According to this series vampire lore, the venom secreted from a vampire's fangs can become addicting. In other vampire books, we see this issue come up time and time again. Add in that Felicity is still an immature, barely legal teen puts a damper on the whole situation as wel ...more

An intense vampiric journey

First, I love Nowak's work, and I read the story of Evolving Ecstacy through her release of the novellas, Ecstasy Unleashed, Stakes and Sunshine, and Evolution of Love. I've looked at the three different reviews for each novella, and am including portions of those thoughts in this review, and some of my new thoughts on the story. The story continues to grow as do the characters. There is more depth and intensity between characters. There is a connection, a deep one, be

I thought this book was better than book 1 and book 2.

The further I read into the book, I wanted to know more.

Within the book, I thought that Cain was making a brave decision to keep the one he loved safe.

There was one thing I didn't get in the book and that was when Allie said, "You want I should Leave."

Other than that, I thought this book is the best so far and I would love to read the next one to see what happens next.

Evolving Ecstasy is the third installment in the Almost Human series and it just keeps getting better. We meet up with all the familiar characters again and get to know each of them a little more.

This is a continuation of the first two books so you are advised to read them first. In this book, Felicity grows more mature and finds herself faced with decisions to make that will not only impact herself but others as well. We see more of the supporting cast here and learn what has influenced them t

This is the thrilling conclusion to the Almost Human Trilogy. As Cain and Felicity hit some issues with their relationship, Ally awaits Mattie's return. Sindy continues to grow as a person and is not as abrasive in this volume.

I loved this series. Reading the third volume was like visiting with old friends. I loved the way the way the characters developed. I have to say I didn't see the ending coming, but I did love the way it ended. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the paranormal. I
