There are so many amazing books releasing on March 5, 2013 that I’m just dying to add to my permanent collection. I have a few early copies in electronic and print format, but not the book I’m most excited for. The book I’ve wanted to read since before the second book in the series was released. The book I’m also approaching with a little bit of anxiety.

Okay, a lot of anxiety. Fear…. Dread…. Because I know just how wicked the author can be to her characters. And from what I’ve heard this book is going to be a killer. Pun very possibly intended.

Of course I’m talking about Leah Clifford’s A TOUCH MENACING. The book I just had to put in the spotlight this week. Even though I just participated in a book blast for it. Even though I’ve probably talked about this book way too much for my own good… and yours. Even though I know that this book is going to make me scream.

But even with awesome books like SPELLCASTER, INFATUATE, LET THE SKY FALL and REQUIEM releasing this week, there is no other book I’m anticipating in quite the same way as A TOUCH MENACING.

In fact, I’ve been so worried about just what might happen in this final book that, until now, I’ve refused to read the book’s description in its entirety. And now that I have, it has made me that much more terrified… anxious… hopeful. Mostly terrified.

I am so curious about this plague. I’m dying to know what it would mean for everyone if Eden could become mortal again. I’m desperate to know why no one but Eden is mentioned in this description. I’m so unbelievably worried about just what the author has in store for Az.

And of course I’m super excited to see just how she plans to end things with Luke. My favorite character in the series. The character whose happy ending could only mean an unhappy one for everyone else.

With less than three weeks until A TOUCH MENACING‘s release, I don’t have much longer to wait. I won’t have to be jealous of all those people who already know how this story ends. I won’t have to wrack my brain and pester the author to find out just what she did to Az, Gabe, Eden, Kristen, Jarrod, Luke, and the Kitten… okay, maybe I’ll still have to wonder about the Kitten.

But I will have to say goodbye. Something I’m not entirely sure I’m ready for.

I could go on… and on… and on… about A TOUCH MENACING. And I would if I knew just a little bit more about what was to come. But I have not a clue. So I will just have to wait for this amazing – yes it will be amazing – final book in Leah Clifford’s A Touch Trilogy to be released to have a good excuse to ramble on.

And if you had any doubt before reading this post, though I don’t think you do now, A TOUCH MENACING is the book that stands out from all other wicked awesome books releasing the week of March 5th. It’s the book I’m most excited for. The book I will devour immediately. The series I will be heartbroken to have say goodbye to. And it is, without a doubt, the book to watch.

About the Book

Goodreads description:

Eden is dying. For real, this time.

She is crumbling to ash, and an unnatural plague is ravaging mortals and immortals alike. With both Heaven and Hell out to destroy her, Eden can no longer tell the difference between good and evil.

Friends become enemies. And enemies are everywhere.

But don’t underestimate Eden. She’ll fight for her life, for the lives of those she loves, and for every life she has ever touched.

She’ll fight for revenge. For redemption. For—just maybe—the chance to be mortal again.

Everything began with forbidden love.

What will be sacrificed at the bitter end?

The dramatic conclusion to Leah Clifford’s dark, alluring trilogy of life, death, and epic love.
