Summary

In this stunning conclusion to the After The Rift series, Josie and her friends return home to find Glancia on the brink of war and their enemies in power. With political machinations and court intrigue bringing danger at every turn, they must tread carefully. But being careful won’t bring resolutions and answers. It won’t bring back lost memories or stop the nation hurtling into war.

The only thing that can make everything right is the ultimate sacrifice. But will Josie make it?

At the heart of it all is the magic that stole the memories of so many. The magic that some people will do anything to get their hands on. In a palace full of lies and betrayal, Josie and her friends must be careful who they can trust – or suffer the consequences. 

The Return of Absent Souls is the final book in the After The Rift series. The books in order are:

  • #1 The Palace of Lost Memories
  • #2 The Echo of Broken Dreams
  • #3 The Whisper of Silenced Voices
  • #4 The Temple of Forgotten Secrets

Fantastic Finish to a Fantastic series

It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a series as much as this! I’m not really into fantasy, but am more a murder mystery reader...but wow! CJ Archer May have changed my mind! All 5 books were SO believable and kept me gripped and Marian Hussey’s narration bought every character to life!!....can not recommend this series enough...Bravo :-)

The Perfect Ending

They say that all good things must come to an end. And so it is with C.J. Archer’s after the rift series. If you’re a fan of this series, I can promise you that all loose ends will be tied up, except for one. 😉

A great ending to the series!

It was sad to come to the end of this series, but the author did a great job with it. The loose ends were all tied up without being rushed as often happens in a series of this scope. So many times I am disappointed in an ending, but this time the author did a great job and there was a bit of a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. The narrator was fabulous as always and I will definitely look for other books by this narrator and author in the future.
