My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Glow (Zellie Wells, #3)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book as a gift.)
This is the third book in the Zellie Well’s trilogy, and kicks off where book 2 ‘Glimmer’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2 ‘Glimpse’ and ‘Glimmer’.**
Zellie and Avery have found the loophole that means that they get to be together, but they still have the problem of Mildred, who is planning on using mind control to bend the will of retroacts to her own nefarious plans.
Can Zellie and the crew stop her before it’s too late? How many possible retroacts can Ben locate before Mildred gets to them? And how far will Zellie be pushed before it’s all over?

This was an interesting end to the series, although once again I was dubious over how many super-powers one girl could have.

Zellie’s powers had grown exponentially in this instalment, and she was rewinding people all over the place. Melody was still acting as lookout, and seemingly doing a good job of it, while we didn’t really hear all that much from Avery. Zellie really did just pick up super powers like she was shopping on amazon and pressing that ‘1-click’ button, which was a tad unbelievable.

The storyline was okay, although I have to admit that I kept forgetting that the overall plan was to deal with Mildred, as Ben’s group and Zellie’s group both seemed to be focusing on other things. When we actually got the showdown with Mildred it happened quite quickly, as suddenly Zellie knew where she was!
The romance in this one was a bit different, in that Zellie and Avery were already together, and the romance in this was mostly about other people other than Zellie, which was okay, but nothing wonderful.
The ending was alright, and I was glad that everything was tied up. I’d say that overall this series was only okay though, nothing amazing for me unfortunately.
Overall; an okay ending to the trilogy.
6 out of 10.
