Review: Abandon the Night (Envy Chronicles #3) by Colleen Gleason, Joss Ware

From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers. They
are humankind's last hope . . . but they cannot survive this dark,
ravaged world alone . . .

Quentin Fielding had everything. Money. Power. Women. But now that civilization is all but annihilated, Quent wants only one thing: revenge. Harnessing a strange new "gift," he embarks on a deadly mission to find the man responsible
for the chaos and destruction, the man he should have killed years ago: his father. Only one thing stands in his way--a mysterious, arrow-wielding beauty . . .

Zoe Kapoor is on her own quest for vengeance, searching for the monstrous fiends who murdered her family. Soon she and Quent join together, journeying through the ruins of the world they once knew as a desperate desire builds between them. Drawing closer to an enemy they never imagined, Zoe and Quent must abandon all fear, abandon all regret, abandon the night . . .

I finished Abandon the Night in one day. I couldn’t put it down. So many questions I had before get answered and are replaced with a whole bunch of new ones I can;’t wait to discover. Just when I thought this series couldn’t get any better…

I really didn’t know what to think of Quent from the very beginning. Now that I have finished, I got to say I love him. Sassy and angry is my overwhelming impression of him. As his story is revealed, I totally got it. Zoe I at first thought was more feral than human. She also has a sad story and some serious motivation to all her killings. They certainly do quite a bit of boinking (Sneaking Zoe!) but all of it pales in comparison to why they do it. Really I did a lot of giggling with this book but when it’s all said and done their story and romance is my favorite so far. If you’ve read the series you know Quent has a special gift. The who/what/why about it has quite the WOW factor this time around. And when the secret for it is reveal, yeah…I didn’t see that coming. Yes these lovers get a happy ending and even in the end I was laughing. Oh the hazards of having sex in a tree…BAHAHAHA!!!!

While the story itself is great it’s the journals of the people who survived the change That has me riveted. Between most of the chapters there’s a glimpse of what one person went through. This is my third book in the series and by now I know somehow it’s tied to the current story. When they first appear, I immediately start guessing what the tie in is. Some I find sad but when the puzzle pieces fall into place I find myself excited I guessed right. As for guessing right, I have a theory about the gangas. I’m hoping somewhere in one of the future books the mystery of their origins gets explained. But for now, I’ll keep guessing.

It’s not secret I am totally loving this series. I know in the near future I’ll have the last book in hand and it will be a sad day for me. This world Ms. Ware has me so excited. So many unexpected twist and mysteries to discover as they unfold. I want it to go on forever. One thing I do not recommend is reading this series out of order or individually. While each book is about each of the five guys from the past, they also build on each other. Reading them out of order may be confusing. So make sure to start from the beginning.
