HOSTILE (The After Light Saga, #4) by Cameo Renae - Guest Post & Review

Title: HOSTILE (The After Light Saga, #4)
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: YA Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic
Publisher: CHBB
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR
Wanted. It’s something I’ve had to get used to since being placed on the government’s Most Wanted list. On the run, with my family and Finn by my side, we now have to evade not only the Arvies, but teams of soldiers sent to find and capture me. Little do they know, I’m battling my own demons. After the receiving large doses of mind-enhancing serum, a monster has been unleashed inside my mind. It promises death and destruction; its power, greater than anything I could imagine. Now, I’m too dangerous, and the lives of my loved ones depend on my separation from the group. I must leave and face the hostile world alone. My name is Abigail Park. I will do whatever it takes to save the ones I love. 

Tag Line: Sometimes all you need is hope . . . and Hellfire.
Having met an Arvie in person, I can tell you just how scary they are! Hostile is a continuation of The After Light Saga by Cameo Renae and is the sort of book that you stay awake reading all through the night- you simply HAVE to know what is next! 
Abigail is the most wanted person on the planet... as a weapon!
Having been tested on by the government, she now has abilities that rival the most advanced weapons systems ever known. All she wants, is to have her family safe and to live in a world in which she doesn't have to deal with Arvies. This needs to be on her own terms though, and the government doesn't seem to be playing by the rules. 
Hostile is written perfectly, you feel every moment that Abigail feels, you hold your breath as she hides from lurking danger, and you feel the love just as deeply as she does... and the loss of every fallen person she comes into contact with.
I enjoyed meeting new characters, and I can't wait to see what is in store for the family that Abigail has built along the way!
Suggested for mature readers due to violence and mature themes.

How do you determine the end of all of your series? Is it all pre planned or do you let the characters lead you? 

As horrible as it may seem, I'm one of "those" Pantser writers. I've tried to be a Plotter, but plotting does not work well with me. 
My characters are so stubborn and don't like to be confined to a plot. They like to live outside of the plot box. haha 
I sort of have what I'd like to happen in the beginning and the end, but they often change it. Having my characters lead the story is frightening. Most times I'm just as clueless to the plot as the reader, and shocked at who will survive, or not survive, the journey. It's been quite a wild ride for me as a writer, and there are times I really wish I knew what was going on. But then again, there is something exhilarating and exciting about letting go and giving the story the ability to flow in any direction it needs to.
So far, I've been lucky it's led me in the right direction. Readers seem to love the craziness of my pantsing. If that's even a word. Lol

How do I determine the ending of a series? I don't. I may think I do, but most times I find out as I'm writing. I must say, thus far I've been completely satisfied with the way they've all ended. So, I guess I'll let them think they're winning...for now.
