About the Author

Raised by a family of ex-farmers and/or almost rock stars from Northeastern Iowa, I've always loved to tell stories. After graduating from Texas Christian University with a degree in Film, I began to search for a way to release the voices in my head. I wrote a thriller and a couple of ghost stories, getting my feet wet and learning with each attempt. When I attempted my first YA novel, which would become Whispers in Autumn, I was hooked. I knew then my heart lay with telling stories about and for young adults, and for anyone who loves to read and recapture those fleeting "first" moments.
My spare time is spent reviewing television and movies, spending time with my large, loud, loving family, reading any book that falls into my hands, and being dragged into the fresh air by my dogs Yoda and Jilly.

I really like this book, and series. You feel like you know these characters and care about them. I can hardly wait for the next book to find out what happens to all of them.

This book brings Althea, Lucas and Pax together in their search for their fourth Deshi. It's a building book in the sense that the characters become more independent and confident in their abilities. I think Leigh does an exellent job maintaining the pace throughout as the characters learn to deal with the emotional weight of the responsibility placed on their shoulders. I'm anxious to see how their plan works out in the final book and what becomes of our beloved Dissidents.

(Source: Purchased on kindle from for only £2.56!) This is the third book in the ‘The Last Year’ series, and kicks off where book 2 ‘Winter Omens’ left off. **Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2** Althea, Pax, and Lucas are back in the cabin where Pax and Althea were previously staying, after the fight with the ‘Others’ at the end of Winter Omens. Pax is injured and unconscious, whilst Althea and Lucas care for him as best they can. Things are a bit tense between Lucas and Althea, as Lucas is upset that Althea was with Pax last season whilst he was on his own. Althea dislikes that Lucas is upset about this, but at the same time realises that if Lucas had spent last season with some other girl, she would be jealous too. Things with the ‘Others’ aren’t going too well either. Althea is getting to the point where she is afraid to sleep as her sinum (part of her mind) is under attack by the Others, and she’s has very little protection against them in that respect. Deshi is still being held prisoner, and Cadi is gone. Althea, Lucas, and Pax must now come up with a new plan. They must work out how to reclaim Deshi, the best way to proceed after that, and how they can help the humans if the worst comes to the worst and the dissidents can’t save Earth. Can Althea, Lucas, and Pax rescue Deshi? What are the Others currently up to? And how long do they have before the Others are finished with Earth and throw it away like the other planets they have used up and destroyed? This is the third book in the series, and I loved it just as much as the previous two. Trisha’s writing is excellent, and I just love the whole tone of these books as well as the stories they tell. Starting this book is like coming home again from a long absence, and I honestly cannot recommend this series enough! I love Althea, Lucas, and Pax. I personally am not a fan of love triangles, but the almost love triangle here actually works, and I totally feel Althea’s warring emotions, even though she makes a definite choice over which boy she is in love with in this instalment (well done Althea!). The romance in this book is in a good balance with everything else that’s going on, and is a nice side story, without being too much or too little. I have to say that I did really enjoy this little romance storyline as much as the post-apocalyptic storyline. Lucas and Pax both have their own characteristics and way of doing things, and they’re both great characters. I really can’t wait to see how Deshi will fit in to this group in book 4. I love the way that the group have been slowly bought together over the course of the series, and how they’ve grow together. The ending? OMG – can’t believe we’ve left Althea where we’ve left her! I need to read the next book now! Overall; This series really is one of my most favourite series of all time, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next instalment! Thanks so much to Trisha Leigh for writing such an amazing series of books! Highly recommended! 9.25 out of 10.

With the first two books of THE LAST YEAR series, Trisha Leigh has proven she can create a heart stopping story and carry the tale with beautiful prose. Her lyrical blend continues with BETRAYALS IN SPRING. The third book in a four book series has the potential to fall into a lull, but BETRAYALS IN SPRING not only continues the pacing of the two previous books but surges forward, leaving the reader breathless and hungry for the final book. The author takes what could have been a cliched love triangle and gives the situation a breath of fresh air, all while maintaining a strong female main character who holds her own against humans and Others alike. THE LAST YEAR is the best new YA series I've read this year.
