Enduring Light (The Afterglow Trilogy, #3)

Enduring Light (The Afterglow Trilogy, #3) 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 character, who basically will be forgotten up until the last page I honestly believe that the author forgot all about their lives Or not, since the focus shift between main characters, and the supporters On another note I understand the need to create a love triangle even on a Young Adult book, but damn, this one was a fast type, and ended up with the likable character a.k.a Liam Yay, if you were cheering for that guy I m trying to come up with a witty way to continue writing this review, but I m failing big time, and as I know well, once this is published I WILL remember something witty and informative, but then I won t have the will to do so Ergo here s what I can offer to destroy the darkness something pretty much fundamental will have to come to light understanding and sacrifice to see those you love reign a better version of the Energo city Also, the love triangle will be no when the sacrifice gives a second change at love And many other occurrences that will make you somewhat zippy For the full effect of this review click here. Enduring Light is now available. 3.5 starsI 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 cruel though and probably some fans will get mad and disappointed I found it kinda romantic I am sure if I would suggest the series to a friend because a part or two just didn t work ot for me I would have liked it if the author explained why Charlotte was in love with Liam and Calvin at the same time I wouldn t say no to a better epilogue The author seems promising. 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 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 great, either, Charlotte There s a whole lot of TELLING and not a lot of SHOWING Also, if Calvin was going to die, I don t think Ivy should have had them sleep together I don t know That just bugged me that everybody just had to have sex, like the book wouldn t be complete without it But that s just me I thought it felt super awkward and kinda just smashed in there I don t know, maybe it was the Um, so, we re going to go have sex in the room next door, guys If you don t want to listen, go outside Super classy. 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 believe it has been almost two years since I started this trilogy or that with Enduring Light it is actually over After the end of Perilous Light, I was pining away for Enduring Light and even though it was a long wait, it was worth every second in the end Enduring Light is a remarkable end to a series that will always be one of my favorites With surprises that I never saw coming and the impending battle with Blake, Enduring Light kept me on the tips of my toes I believe with the stakes higher than ever before to save Energo, Enduring Light is the most emotional book of the series, and a very fitting end to the Afterglow Trilogy Obviously the tensions between Charlotte, Calvin and Liam are at their highest with Charlotte stuck in the middle between the boy she has been in love with for most of her life, and the boy from Energo she has been destined to love since walking through those garden gates While love triangles are something that is over used and most times done poorly, Alyssa Rose Ivy handles it beautifully It is hard to choose a team because both guys are amazing, but if I had to choose I would have to say I always go for the childhood love of the boy next door With alternating viewpoints between Kevin and Charlotte, we also get to experience Kevin and Samantha relationship as they head out on a separate mission to find a weapon that may turn the tide in the war on Blake I love the sweetness in their relationship and I could not help but root for them.Sometimes when you finish a book series, it leaves you feeling unsatisfied or that the story is not fully complete I will always want Energo and Afterglow, but Enduring Light ended with a feeling of wholeness that will let me move on happily from this wonderful series Unabridged Bookshelf received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review 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 that a teenager faces, Charlotte discovers much than she thinks when she comes into Energo.She was always shy and quiet, even with answers always on the tip of the tongue But after so many twists and turns, she became safe, confident, and loving than ever.In this last part, she sees all your fears and revelations ARE MANY To overcome and

by the intense bond between him and Charlotte, his Essence He vowed to protect his people and their world Energo along with her Determined to make your Essence than happy, complete Did so.The

Essence.Fought alongside all guardians, like a true warrior Was loyal, and respectful And patient.Am I teamliamforever lolKevin1A story of love, loyalty, friendship, family and union.At various times I could see that even death is imminent Did not lose faith and perseverance.Not to mention the mood and taunts Kevin, Liam and James.Kevin always overprotective of Charlotte, but barely knew his

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 droplets that come out of your eyes when extremely happy or sad I will not reveal the reason for my tears, but I will say this I do not shed said tears for anything Oh no sir, tears are reserved only for the most critical of events It was one of those ugly cries too You know, the ones where you have trouble catching your breath and are border line hyperventilating Yeah, I was really lucky I finished it at night when my family was asleep No witnesses to my near hysterical tears sigh of relief I will leave you with that bit of information It was yet another wonderful series by Ms Alyssa Rose Ivy, who has yet again managed to out due herself I seriously hated to have to see this series come to an end Of course we all know all good things must come to an end, although good is a definite understatement I will miss Charlotte, Calvin, Liam, Kevin, James, and the rest of the gang The series continued where it last left off Energo is in the clutches of the evil Blake Charlotte is still figuring out her feelings for both Calvin and Liam, while also searching for a way to save James The adorable Kevin is trying his best to become the leader he was meant to be, and trying to win Samantha over He s adorbsies Lots of good, juicy stuff going on here guys I really enjoyed reading this series There are very few that both start and end great It s one of those in which you have an instant connection with the characters I get seriously invested in all my characters and this book was no different So this is my farwell to the Energo group I will for sure miss you guys 3 Let s give Ms Ivy a standing ovation for yet another tremendously great series that has come to an end G 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 the world is unique enough while still being easy for me to understand.Charlotte needs to defeat Blake so they split up into teams to retrieve things to help them The story follows four different POVs, Charlotte, Liam, Kevin, and Samantha but they all have unique voices and it was easy to fall into each POV Also since the teams were separated it allowed me to follow both journeys and kept things interesting.Charlotte has been in love with Liam since she was little but as an Essence it is her destiny to be with her Gerard Calvin This was a difficult love triangle because I actually liked both guys although as a fan of best friend romances I was rooting for Liam Seeing Liam s POV and how much he loves Charlotte had me really wondering how this love triangle would resolve It was actually quite a surprising way for things to end I was happy and sad at the same time There were some tears Kevin is on his own mission with Samantha to retrieve something from Alaska As they face difficulties their feelings continue to grow I love getting Samantha s perspective since she was born in Energo Seeing characters from different worlds ride in cars and be surprised with our world always gives me a chuckle The two teams eventually meet again for the big battle scene The ending had one rather big shock that tied into the love triangle Even though I was a bit shocked it ended mostly how I wanted Great series So I m supposed to spend the rest of my life my ridiculously long life watching the girl I love be with someone else Love Wow, Liam That is a big word It s true I ve been in love with her since we were kids. Now that was an ending Alyssa Rose Ivy s Enduring Light begins with the end Yeah, in a sense, that s true We get a short prologue of a major event at the end and I immediately started brewing with ideas and speculations And naturally, I went back and forth throughout reading this one, but I can say that I was right in the end, with my first initial guess And it s a bittersweet feeling.Enduring Light opens up a few weeks later after the events of Perilous Light And a lot has changed Charlotte has her mother back, after thinking her dead for years James is still comatose after risking his life to protect Charlotte And naturally, there s still an inner debate taking over Charlotte over when it comes to her love for Calvin and her growing love for Liam Yes, unfortunately, it s a dreaded love triangle I have to admit, I initially thought we d hit a love square, as I thought James would play a prominent role in the scheme of things considering she meets him first But alas, he was just a friend Which didn t bother me so much He always made me laugh and I enjoyed his moments in the books, but sadly, he was AWOL for the duration of this one.Charlotte and Kevin must once again separate from each other as they work on separate parts to help save the kingdom, country or whatever you want to call Energo from Blake s tyranny Charlotte must look for a scroll that will aid her in the mission to put an end to Blake while Kevin looks for a magical stone that will also help in the mission.This time we get even points of view, besides Charlotte and Kevin, we get Liam and Samantha No Calvin this time Which didn t bother me so much I could never really get behind Calvin and Charlotte s romance I wanted to, believe me, I did I want to like the main couple because I know they ll be together for the series Though I have read different series where that didn t happen, but those are few and far between But I guess Charlotte and Calvin just had too much of an insta love connection And it was almost disturbing But I get that it was part magical that led to their connection, but again, I just couldn t get behind it I was totally rooting for James or Liam, even though it seemed James was never a contender for Charlotte s heart.This one was still quite adventurous Both Charlotte and Kevin are off on their own perilous journeys and they were exciting ones So much happened and you re left wondering about certain characters and other situations The outcomes were a tad slow to reveal, but when they did they were quite surprising.Things wrapped up nicely in this one As a series ender that s to be expected by me at least I have to say, I was quite happy with it Though one teeny, tiny thing at the end had me scratching my head, but really it s nothing to write home about LOL Just a tiny nuisance that left me wondering, why Other than that, I really enjoyed this one I wish I could be moving onto Forged in Stone now, which I was under the impression had connections to this series which brought on my reading this trilogy first But sadly, I must now move onto some review books, but I will be returning to this world soon That is if my impression that the two series are related is true Hopefully.Overall Rating 4 5 stars Fighting Darkness Takes LightDesperate To Save James, Charlotte Scours Energo For Answers With Calvin And Liam At Her Side Kevin And Samantha Head To Alaska To Find The One Item That Might Destroy Blake, But The Search Is Only The BeginningAs Time Runs Out, Charlotte And Kevin Discover That Keeping Energo From Eternal Darkness Will Take A Sacrifice No One Expects
