A Touch Trilogy #3

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.

It’s a bittersweet time when the final book in one of your favorite series is published. It makes me, what I like to call “Book Bipolar”. 
I’m so excited, I can’t stop talking about it. I count down the days. Annoy the hell out of the author trying to wring some kind of a hint of the ending out of them. I eagerly pre-order then watch my mail box, wondering why I didn’t just buy the stupid Amazon Prime account so I could get the book the day of release, instead of 3-4 days after…(happens every time!) Then, with out warning, there upon my doorstep is a copy. Shiny and new and suddenly I want nothing to do with it because I know that once I start I have to finish, and once I finish, that’s the end. It’s over.

Oh my GAWD it’s over…*sobs*…

I flew through this book.
I literally couldn't get to the next page fast enough. I needed to know, I had to find out what was coming. What was next. What horrendous torture would I suffer at the hands of the author? And torture you she will. In fact, if you are invested in this series, I wouldn't suggest reading this on a day you are already emotionally compromised. Clifford kicks the dark, the twisted and the body count up a notch (or ten). Unafraid to drive the knife deep into your heart and twist. No one is safe!

With breathtaking, detailed, and in some cases bone chilling settings. Dialogue I can not get out of my head (Luke has some of the best lines in this book!) and the heaviness carried by Eden and the choices she needs to make, A TOUCH MENACING has everything a good finale should. Pain, sorrow, indecision, panic, fear, humor and laughter.

If you’ve not read the A TOUCH TRILOGY yet, I beg you to pick up a copy. Travel into the dark world created by Leah Clifford with her “foul mouthed celestial posse” (took that last line from her Twitter bio! *wink*) And experience an angel book, that’s not really an angel book.
