In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken!!

Author: Alexandra Bracken
Series: The Darkest Minds #3
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Expected Publication:October 28, 2014

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.

They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.

Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.

Also check out the latest Darkest Minds Novella which released September 2nd!

Sparks and Rise

Don’t miss the thrilling novella that connects the last two novels in the New York Times best-selling Darkest Minds trilogy.

Sam didn’t think things could get worse at Thurmond rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam’s dark childhood. Lucas has a deadly secret–he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk his everything to save her.

    Ruby!! LOVE her and I love her with LIam :)

    thank you so very much :)

  2. I haven't read the series, so I wouldn't know. But there's so much hype around Liam, that I think I already like him!

  3. Such a tough question. I love Chubs. He's just so funny & awesome. I will always heart Liam. He's one awesome guy. I also love Ruby. She's tough when she needs to be. I can't wait for this final book. I hope my heart can take it. Thank you so much.

  4. To be honest i have not read this series yet.. i am quite embarrassed that i haven't bought this book yet, so i do not know who my favourite character is, but i would love to find out....

  5. Liam! <333 How can you not swoon over this southern guy? I also like Ruby who's tough and ready to make hard decisions when necessary.

  6. I have not read the series yet. I am waiting to get the entire trilogy and it's novellas and then marathon them. But, from what I have heard from other people, Liam is pretty damn adorable!

    Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

  7. I actually haven't read it yet, but i need to.

  8. I haven't read the series yet but from the reviews I have read I have a feeling Ruby will be my favorite character.

  9. To be honest i have not read this series yet so i do not know who my favorite character is. TFS.

  10. I haven't' read this series yet, but from the excerpts I've read, I like Ruby. :D Thank you!

  11. I don't have one; I have yet to read this series. But I have been meaning to for so long!

  12. I haven't read the books yet, so I don't have one. Hopefully I'll fix that soon!

  13. I actually haven't read the series, so I don't know which character I like yet. ;)

  14. I've not started the series yet, I have heard such great things about the it that I will definitely be upping it on my TBR list

  15. Chubs is the best in my opinion.

  16. Holy poop, you're going to make me CHOOSE? I guess if I have to, I have to say.... ummmm.... Oh my god it's like choosing a favorite book, I just can't! Uh, if I have to pick I'll pick one for each book. That could work. Let's see, for "TDM" I'd have to say Liam. Or Ruby. For "In Time" I'll pick Zu, but Gabe is such a close second! For "Never Fade", I say Chubs or Cole, and for "Sparks Rise" it's a definite Lucas. My heart just breaks for him. Jesus Lord save me, my heart will be shattered at the end of "In the Afterlight", I just know it.

  17. Lol Isabel. Sorry for making you choose.

  18. Sadly, I haven't read the series but I've hear a lot about it. There's a lot of great reviews flying around these books! Sounds like it would be easy to get lost in them.

  19. I love Liam and I love Ruby. But I love them together even more. :)
