I didn’t even have to look to see what books were releasing the week of November 12th. I’ve had AFTERGLOW‘s release date committed to memory for what feels like forever. It was going to be the book I spotlighted this week no matter what other books were coming out the same week. It’s my most anticipated release and has been since long before I actually got my hands on this final book and devoured it.

It was an epic finish to an absolutely phenomenal series. One that will forever stand out as a favorite.

I loved the possibility of this series before I ever read the first word. And after I did I fell immediately and madly in love with it. It was different and brilliant and the writing was gorgeous. And with each book it just got better and better.

This final installment in the series was so far beyond amazing. I could not tear my eyes away from the moment I picked it up to the moment I turned to the final page. And when that happened I didn’t want to. Saying goodbye was not at all easy.

I only read it just the once, though I wanted to read it again and again. But as it is a signed and printed ARC I didn’t want to risk any bent or damaged pages. However I can’t resist the chance to read it just one more time before the final version is released. So it will my very next off-pile read.

As I don’t want to spoil this last book for those who haven’t yet read it and I don’t want to spoil the series for those who haven’t yet met Ashline Wilde, I don’t even want to talk about what’s mentioned in the description. But I will just say that this series was, is, amazing. AFTERGLOW is action-packed, it’s riveting. It was everything I hoped it would be. Though I wish it wasn’t goodbye.

While there aren’t a million books releasing the week of November 12th, even if it was up against any number of favorites, AFTERGLOW would still have been the only one I’d consider as the book to watch this week. I read it. I fell head-over-heels in love with it. Yes, there were tears. Yes, there were times that I was so unbelievably anxious. Yes, I may have held my breath during certain scenes… many of them.

And, yes, this book couldn’t have been more awesome if it tried.

I have been waiting for its release for over a year. I have been counting down the months, weeks and now, finally, days – just 18 left. I have been dying to talk about this book with those who have read it. And I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival on both my Kindle and my doorstep.

So, yeah, you better believe that AFTERGLOW is the book to watch this week.

About the Book

Goodreads description:

The action thrills and the passion burns in this red-hot conclusion to the Wildefire trilogy.

Teenage volcano goddess Ashline Wilde discovers that her former love, Colt Halliday, has an evil plan to kill the Cloak, the benevolent beings that oversee the gods. And that’s not all—he also wants to merge Ash and her two sisters back into a single, too-powerful goddess, Pele. Ash must stop her trickster-god ex-boyfriend once and for all…and to do it, she’s going to have to feed a few flames.
