It's a fearful thing to love what death can touch...
In the first book, Hereafter, we are introduced to the main characters and the mystery of how Amelia died; we meet Josh, we see them as they fall in love. In the second book, Arise, Amelia and Josh go to New Orleans, meet a whole clique of Seers, and some new friends. Now, we come to a close in Elegy as Amelia is threatened by some ghosts who want her to join their dark side under duress.
Throughout the entire series, especially in the second and third books, I had a lot of trouble with the world building, most specifically the ghost mythology. Eventually it got to be distracting enough to affect my reading. I felt like the limits of how much I could suspend my belief in order to enjoy Amelia and Joshua's story, were being tested beyond their bounds. Many of the ghost rules did not make any practical sense to me, especially once elements change in book 2. Some of the rules seemed to be added just to create tension to the plot, and not because of a good explanation.
The third book in a ghost trilogy is where I start to dread the fact that I'm reading a series that features a relationship between a human and someone who is dead. It's when reality sets in, and I realize that there aren't a lot of options that end positively for the couple in question...but still what kind of ending was that, though. I would have like a different ending to the series especially after EVERYTHING Amelia and Joshua went through. I'm super disappointed. I can't help feeling disappointed with this. The ending was just far too bittersweet and it didn't feel tied up very well. I wanted more of a conclusion and I feel cheated. What about Eli? What about her mom? There's so many things I am left wondering about and I'm disheartened by how incomplete this feels.
