The passionate love between ghost girl Amelia and human boy Joshua was powerful enough to break the barrier between life and death. Now the star-crossed lovers believe they can finally be together.
But demonic forces threaten to tear them apart. The evil beings tell Amelia she must turn herself over to darkness or they will kill a human every week.
Forces of light offer Amelia a solution. She can join them in gathering souls. If she does, however, she will never see Joshua again.
Amelia refuses to be separated from Joshua. She will fight the forces of darkness and light if that’s what it takes to keep him.

Review 6****** This is the third and final book in the Hereafter Trilogy. I absolutely LOVED it! Amelia Ashley is a fantastic character. I liked her from the first time I met her in Hereafter. No longer a ghost, but not quite alive either, she is Risen. She is still very powerful, but being risen has created a problem. Amelia can no longer touch her living boyfriend, Joshua. She will need all her strength to face what's coming! Joshua Mayhew is also a fantastic character. He may be a bit of a sports jock, but he is also one of the nicest people I have ever met in a book! Thanks to a near death experience, he has the ability to see, touch and speak to ghosts. He is also madly in love with Amelia. (Darn!). I love this series, so when the book became available to pre-order, I did so! I received it over the weekend and promptly began reading! Once again, I was pulled into Amelia and Joshua's love story! I didn't put this book down until I had read it from cover to cover! In fact, I read this book within 7 hours! The love story between Amelia and Joshua really tugged at my heart strings! I found myself tearing up a few times! However, there is a lot of danger in the form of the Demons living under Wilburton's High Bridge. They are extremely determined to get Amelia, and use any means to do so, including killing the residents of Wilburton. They are very unsavoury characters, and they made me shudder with revulsion! Amelia has to make a difficult choice, and I don't envy her it! I found the ending bittersweet in many ways, but I will leave it to you to decide if you agree or not! Tara Hudson is a wonderful author! Her characters are extremely lifelike and her descriptions of places are very vivid. To say that she is a relative newcomer to the literary world, she makes it seem as if she has been writing for years! Her writing is fast paced, and flows beautifully! I am a HUGE fan of hers, and will read any books written by her in the future. I HIGHLY recommend this book (and series) if you love YA, Romance or Paranormal Romance genres. - Lynn Worton

The book was ok. I didn't like the ending. I expected more from Josh and Amelia. I thought we would learn more in the epilogue and it did not happen. I really loved the other two books. This one was not the best.

Overall, I thought it was a cute series. A little cliché - ghost girl meets boy and fall so madly in love with each other but I still liked it. I really like the characters, Amelia and Joshua. I liked their relationship too. I just wanted to hold them tight and protect them at all costs. And that’s what they did for each other, not to mention their friends and family too. Man, that’s some major support system. It was a crazy journey from the first time Amelia and Joshua met until the very end of the book. So much happened; near death, evil demons, voodoo spells, betrayal from a potential ally, more evil demons, death, grand plans, and a bittersweet ending. I found the ending satisfactory and thought it ended well. The only thing that got me is when they kissed or what not, I kept picturing that end scene in Casper where he turned from boy to ghost or the scene with Jay in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back where he’s making out with the air. Some major giggling on my part when I imagined those while reading. But really I liked the series.

Though Elegy’s ending wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for the Hereafter series, it was one of the best novels I have read this year! I was really enthralled by the conflict between Amelia and the Netherworld. The battle between good and evil was much more prevalent in this novel than either the first or second, which I liked. I enjoyed the threats the demons spewed. I was captured by the ultimatums and sacrifices Amelia faced. Elegy was so much darker and so much more thrilling, it kept me wondering what could possible happen next? What more could this poor girl go through? Also, I loved Joshua and Amelia’s relationship. Their love was so strong, which is why, I think, I both loved and hated the ending. It’s so bitter sweet. But as I read the novel, I knew no real ‘happily ever after’ could come of Amelia and Joshua’s love. Not unless a major miracle occurred. Hereafter has to be one of my all-time favorite series!! If you haven’t read it, I definitely recommend you add it to your list! It’s so well written and it will capture your heart!
