Book Description

Part 3 of the Touchstone Trilogy.

Cassandra Devlin doesn’t know what she's for. But she knows she's running out of time.

Since Cass was rescued from the abandoned world of Muina, the Aussie teen has proven more than useful to the people of Tare. Expeditions to their home world no longer end in slaughter. The teaching city of Kalasa has been unlocked. After years of searching for answers, they are starting to make progress.

But space is tearing itself apart. Ionoth attack in ever-greater numbers. And "the useful stray" has been injured so many times that the Tarens hesitate to use her for fear of losing her.

With one particular Taren now her most important person, Cass is determined to contribute everything she can, and hopes to find some answers of her own. What is the link between Muina and Earth? Why are the reclusive Nurans so interested in 'rescuing' her? And what role in the crisis do the inhuman Cruzatch play?

Can Cass keep herself together long enough to find out?

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent conclusion to the series November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was eagerly awaiting the third installment of the Touchstone series, and was so happy that it didn't dissapoint! As in the previous 2 books, there are many laugh out loud parts. The main character just has such a wonderful "voice" and funny way of looking at the new world(s) she inhabits. There were definitely some poignant and sad moments...but I suppose it would be odd if there wasn't any sadness when they are battling for their continued existence. Apparently there is an upcoming release for this series called "Gratuitous Epilogue" which should be greeat fun for finding out the details of the happily ever after.

This whole series was such a pleasant surprise as the author was completely new to me! I highly recommend it to anyone- regardless of your preferred reading genre. The characters and world building are wonderfully done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Ending to Enjoyable Series November 30, 2011
By Alrian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised to discover Höst and the Touchstone series. Having been disappointed by a lot of writers who can't quite figure out what to do with the story once the bad guys are defeated, I was wondering if Höst could pull off an ending. Happily, she does. The story isn't fully wrapped up; I still have plenty of questions about the Ddura, for instance. However, the loose ends make sense in terms of the character's view point. Cass doesn't explain everything, because she doesn't know the everything, and she has other things to worry about.

I wonder how much better known Höst might be if she had the clout of a big publisher behind her. Then again, would she be able to write something as quirky and interesting as Touchstone with a marketing department leaning on her and her editor?

5.0 out of 5 stars a fitting conclusion to the series November 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I didn't finish this book in a single sitting, it's not for the want of trying. While some threads are left dangling to some extent or other (arguably leaving a small opening for a sequel or spin-off in the Touchstone universe), it still neatly concludes the series. I would have wished for some parts of the story to be resolved less abruptly, but I don't consider this much of a problem.

I'll be rereading the series. Thanks, Andrea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touchstone Series November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the perfect conclusion to the series! I don't want to give away any part of the book, but I felt the new characters fit in well. Although I knew it would end in a HEA, I was thoroughly surprised with some of the twists and how some of the scenarios played out.

Characters are well formed, relationships between them seem realistic and believable. The level of detail in the writing made it easy to picture in my head without trying too hard.

Loved the series, can't wait for the follow-up. Have and will continue to suggest it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a good read! December 10, 2011
By Mskitti
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i read the first two books within two days of each other and wasn't dissapointed with Cazandra either. These books were a pleasure to read and im halfway through the first Touchstone book for a 2nd time. I kinda wish it hadn't said The End at the end of Cazandra, was hoping for a continued book, but none the less would recomment all 3 books to anyone who is up for a good fantasy/sc-fi trilogy. A+++

I am so glad the first book in this trilogy was free otherwise I would have never come across it. Was hooked after I read Stray. Andrea Host really brought the characters to life for me.
