Apocalypse (Guardians Book II)Apocalypse by Theresa Pocock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Praise for the character development in Apocalypse! Seth, Miriam and the whole crew are going through a good deal of emotional growth not to mention an Apocalypse at the same time! Thank you, Theresa for writing such fascinating characters. One of the best Young Adult novels I’ve read in a while. The Epic tale of good vs. evil feels so appropriate in the Garden of Edenia. I look forward to the next installment and future works by this author.

Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash Book 3) by Amanda Marin – Review by Jonell Collins

Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash, #3)Flicker to Fire by Amanda Marin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash Book 3) by Amanda Marin, is the culmination of the Crimson sash series. I have to admit it didn’t actually go the way I thought it would, I think it went a whole lot better. I always like to be surprised; I always like it when the ending is a little bit different than what I imagined. Neve and Micah have fought a hard fight for love. You can’t leave this book unread. I have enjoyed this series for the wonderful story that it is, but also for the parts of it that reflect our present society.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

North to Nara (Crimson Sash #1) by Amanda Marin was a really good book. I think it demonstrates how many of us start out. We think we live in a wonderful world, everything looks perfect, everything seems perfect. Little by little we see the worms in the apple. Neve begins to see the worms in the apple when Micah catches her eye and suddenly nothing is as it seems. This is a great introduction to wonderful series.

Flicker to Fire: Crimson Sash: Book 3
by Amanda Marin

This book had me hooked from the start and I couldn’t put it down until I got to the end. I have loved this series since the first book and every book just got that much better. It is my suggestion that you read these books in order for the best experience and you will get to know Neve and Micah that much better. Neve and Micah are two very strong people and they have been through so much to be together and in this book they want to fight back. What will happen when they do? There were unexpected twists and turns in this story. The author did an exceptional job making me feel like I was right there in the story. I found this book to be entertaining, heartbreaking, emotional, and hopeful. I highly recommend this book you won’t want to miss out on this wonderful book and series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Flicker to FIre by Amanda Marin is the third and final book in the Crimson Sash series. I highly recommend reading the books in order because the story lines flow from the beginning to the end of the series. This book is a great conclusion to this series. Neve and Micah are operatives for Sans Murs and are trying to create a better world. The problem gets explosive with the conflicts gaining steam. Will they be able to extinguish the fire before it’s too late?
I have enjoyed the development of Neve and Micah through the series and how they have grown in people with strong beliefs and loyalties. The setting is dystopian with a twist of fantasy but is not so unrealistic to be relatable. I have enjoyed this series and was happy with how the series was ended. I look forward to reading more from Amanda Marin in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is a well written dystopian fantasy book. Amanda Marin did a fantastic job with the details. The elements of the story are action, adventure, drama, violence, and friendship. This YA kept my interest from the first page until the last page. This book is my favorite of the series. Neve and Micah are back and are full of hope. I felt the love between them throughout the story. I was at the edge of my seat, wondering what will be happening and prepare for it. I felt like I was right there with Neve and Micah. Will Neve and Micah accomplish what they set out to do? I highly recommend the entire series. This one can be a stand-alone but I think that you will enjoy all the stories

Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash, #3)Flicker to Fire by Amanda Marin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Flicker to Fire, is book three in Amanda Marin’s ‘Crimson Sash’ series. It continues the story of Neve Hall and Micah Ward which began in the first book, ‘North to Nara’ and continued in ‘Sky to Sea’.This is a Young Adult dystopian fantasy series set in a dystopian world with two waring factions the ‘New Republic’ and the ‘Nation’. The couple find themselves in Kébec Village, the refugee centre, and as Sans Murs operatives they begin documenting all of the the Nation’s human rights violation cases as the escapees who arrive at the centre tell them of their stories. However the border wall separating the two factions is crumbling and with it the safety it provides. Meanwhile Isla Pryce’s mission to purge the Nation of Sufferers is just getting started and as Micah has been unfaithful to his vows he is at risk from the vicious Inquisition Board. When mysterious Blythe Thatcher enters the village having been on the run from Pryce, Neve believes she can help Sans Murs further its cause, and help rid the Nation of its awful Suffering system. Once the Nation uncovers their plan, however, the warring factions struggle which started as a flicker quickly turns to fire. Neve and Micah are the only ones who can extinguish the flame but it will be dangerous. No spoilers, I recommend you read the book and the two previous novels in this series.
This is a well written book with a solid storyline, great characters and it moves along at a fast pace. I was gripped from page one and found myself totally immersed in the dystopian world Marin has created, thanks to her amazing world building. Neve and Micah are a great couple who ultimately just want to be together and live in a safe place peacefully. I found the couple likeable, realistic and with a ‘normal’ relationship amidst this dystopian world. I was cheering them on throughout the book and I really cared about their outcome. Blythe was a fascinating new character. Marin has a way of writing and describing the characters that makes you as the reader really get to know them and care for them.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Flicker to Fire by Amanda Marin is the third book in the Crimson Sash series. This series does need to be read in order as each story follows on from the other. This book is a brilliant conclusion to the series and easily my favourite book of the 3. It was so easy to fall right back into these characters and their journey. From the minute I picked up the book I was excited to see how it would end.
The author has created a fantastic world with such lasting characters in them. The story was exciting and had a bit everything you could want in it. I thoroughly enjoyed this whole series and would definitely recommend it.

I have loved loved loved this series. I already can not wait to read them all again. I didn’t know how much I loved the dystopian genre until picking these up. I don’t advise reading them out of order or as stand alones, the story is so heartbreakingly beautiful from start to finish that you would not be getting the full impact without reading them all.

I hate that this series is over but I love that it is because it is perfect the way it stands. This 3rd part had me all messed up, my emotions were all over the place and thinking I had things all figured out so many times and being wrong as many times made this part a slight favorite of the 3. I felt while reading like I knew these characters, felt like I was standing right beside them during this entire journey. I will not soon forget them and I already miss them!

I love the way this author tells a story, you find yourself totally immersed and real life just doesn’t come into play, I could not put it down and lost a few hours sleep to finish it.

Do yourself a favor and one click all 3 of these books that give you 1 story that I know you’ll want to read again and again!
