Blog Tour 'Limerence' by Charlotte McConaghy

Today I’m excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Limerence’ by Charlotte McConaghy. ‘Limerence’ is the third book in the Cure series and will be published in April. The Cure is a young adult/new adult science fiction romance series.
For more information and tour stops, please visit the tour page.

The Book: injection can cure love. Only life can do that.

Deep in the darkest tunnels hide the last of the resistance fighters. Hunted by the savage Furies and the ruthless Bloods, they live in constant peril. The only means of survival is to seek strength in family and find courage in love. So what happens when love is cured, scoured away, leaving death in its place?

In the final battle for freedom, there are no lines that won't be crossed. And for Josi this means becoming the creature she fears most of all: the girl with a blood moon heart.

The gripping conclusion to the dystopian trilogy The Cure, 'Limerence' is a love story for the monsters within.

Perfect for fans of Pierce Brown, Laini Taylor and Maggie Stiefvater.

This book can be pre- ordered on Amazon.

My Review:

A view weeks ago I began reading this amazing series by starting in the first book ‘Fury’. Shortly after I began reading the second book ‘Melancholy’. And soon it was time to read the last book in the series called ‘Limerence’. I was really looking forward to reading this last book, but I was also dreading it. I loved this series from the very first page in ‘Fury’, and although I really wanted to know how this story would end, I really wasn’t ready to let this series and the characters go.

“Limerence is romantic love. Desperate, aching, shivering, can’t think, can’t eat, can’t sleep love. It’s the obsessive demanding part of love that turns us into slaves.”

In ‘Limerence’ we re-enter the world of Josephine and Luke. A lot has happened since the ending of ‘Melancholy’ and the beginning of ‘Limerence’. And it definitely was a little shocking to find out how Josephine and Luke were now, months later. But thankfully, this book, just like the other two books, is written from the past and the future. During the story we switch from the past to the future and back again. This is such an interesting way of writing, and it made this story even more intense than it already was.

Throughout this book a lot of questions I had since the beginning of this series were answered. And a lot of these answers were definitely not what I expected. Just as with the first two book I devoured the pages of ‘Limerence’. I just loved it so much. Charlotte McConaghy definitely has a way of making you feel all kinds of emotions while reading this series. At the end of ‘Limerence’ I honestly felt like I had been riding a roller-coaster. I was sad, devastated, confused, happy and above all I was touched. This series was so intense and I really came to love those two main characters Josephine and Luke.

A lot is happening in ‘Limerence’ and there were definitely some shocking developments. This book definitely made me ‘oehh’ and ‘aww’ out loud at times. Other moments I just didn’t know how I would be able to keep sitting because it just became so intense.
The world were Josephine and Luke life in, is definitely terrible but also has it’s beautiful parts. I find it really impressive that a person can come up with a world like this. And also being able to make the readers still fall in love with this this world and all the creatures that lived inside it. I just loved getting to know this world and the characters. Josephine and Luke definitely are characters I will remember for a long time.

And now, although I am sad that it ended.. I couldn’t have wished for a better ending to this series. This series definitely is one of my favorites and I’m getting those paperbacks, because this series just needs to be on my bookshelf. 

My Rating:

About 'Fury' (The Cure #1):
When emotions are erased from the world, creating a civilization of mindless drones, only those with fury can survive.

On the same day each year Josephine Luquet wakes naked, shivering and covered in blood that is not her own. Under the cold gaze of the blood moon she is someone else entirely, but when dawn breaks her memories vanish and she is left with only an icy horror, a burning fury. Amid a sea of 'drones', she alone hasn’t been cured.

Then she meets Luke. He isn’t like the other drones. With secrets behind his eyes, he is the only one determined to help Josephine discover the truth before the next blood moon rises.

But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?

Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

About 'Melancholy' (The Cure #2):
Here in the west they know a lot about hope. They know how to ration it just as they do with food and water.

Josephine is at last free of the blood moon. But in a desperate rush to find help for a comatose Luke, she discovers the strange and dangerous world of the resistance, and it is unlike any world Josi has known.

In the west they believe in fury – they cultivate and encourage it. The unruly people of the resistance know that to survive means to fight. But can they fight the inevitable cure for sadness that rushes steadily closer?

In the action-packed sequel to Fury, everything Josi believes about herself will be challenged. Haunted by atrocities and betrayals, she must find the strength to trust again, and decide how far she is willing to go to fight the inevitable.

At times both brutal and sweet, Melancholy is the story of second chances and finding love in a ruined world.
