About the Author
Lucía Ashta loves books and magic.
It didn’t take long before she started putting the two together to write magical books with twists and turns you won’t see coming, and enough adventure and heart to keep you reading long past your bedtime.
Aftermath is the third book in The Jewel Trilogy.
It follows Acceptance Book One and Awoken Book Two of The Jewel Trilogy.
In the final installment of the trilogy Jewel has to find a middle ground in who she is, wrestle with her options and grow into the leader everyone expects her to be. But she has to grapple with not only a serious decision but also with the possibility of becoming something dark and dangerous. Jewel has the whole fate in her hands and only someone who understands both sides can make the right decision. She is that someone.
With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Jewel is the only one who can stop Zeus from taking over humanity. Now everyone must pick a side- humanity or immortality. But what will happen once they do?
After discovering her past, Jewel must battle with connecting her two selves and defeat Zeus. And to make matters worse, she now knows of the betrayal of the one person she thought would always fight at her side, Anubis
With the final battle looming Jewel can’t risk anything getting in her way. Not even love, and definitely not the darkness hiding inside her. And the power growing within her will change her forever.
Can she become the leader they all need her to be, or will the world she loves become enslaved one again?
