Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This imaginative follow-up to Castle's sci-fi novel After Dark (2000) revisits the futuristic world of Harmony, a planet discovered when an energy field in space opened, providing a gate between Earth and several other inhabitable worlds. The novel picks up where the last book left off, with gifted detangler Lydia Smith dealing with amnesia and recovering from her Lost Weekend in the catacombs beneath the Dead City. Desperate to reconstruct the lost days, Lydia responds to an urgent call from her old college professor, who claims to have news regarding those days. She arrives to find him murdered, and the only clue to the killer's identity is a vague message hidden inside a milk carton. On the brighter side, Lydia's romance with ghost-hunter Emmett London has progressed, and she still has Fuzz, a four-eyed, six-legged dust-bunny who remains her devoted protector. Those unfamiliar with this world will struggle to understand Lydia's predicament and decipher the book's jargon ("she could not summon ghost light, but she could de-rez the danger snares of illusion shadow that the long-vanished aliens had left behind"). In a letter to readers, Castle recommends this book to those who "relish [their] romantic suspense with a paranormal twist," but paranormal romance readers and even fans of far-future romances will likely find this terrain too tough to navigate unless they've read Castle's previous book.

From Booklist

It's the second time in a month that Lydia Smith has found a dead body. The first time pararchaelogist and museum curator Lydia became tangled up in a murder investigation it brought her together with her current paramour, ghost hunter Emmett London. So naturally Lydia thinks of Emmett when she stumbles across the body of her former professor, Lawrence Maltby. While the police believe Maltby's death was caused by his drug addiction, Lydia doesn't buy it. So with Emmett's help, she pursues her own investigation even as she tries to figure out exactly what kind of a relationship she and Emmett have. Castle (a pseudonym for Jayne Ann Krentz) continues Lydia's and Emmett's adventures together, which began in After Dark (2000), as she returns to the fascinating world of Harmony, where the relics of an ancient civilization linger and where dangerous things like energy ghosts lurk. Castle neatly combines her sharp wit, polished plotting, and gift for subtle characterization in a superbly sensual and captivating action- and adventure-filled romance. John Charles

I wish there was a higher rating than 5. Nobody does it better. If you read "After Dark" you probably enjoyed it even more. The sense of a fully fleshed out world is awesome. The sexual tension between Lydia and Emmett is great. I love the way each worries about the feelings of the other. The dance of romance is Jayne at her best. From Lydia's determination to protect Emmett, to his worries about her feelings for ghost-hunters, we are constantly waiting for the explosions to begin. However, Jayne Castle, knows what we want. I just loved the Restoration Ball and The DRESS. Two hearts wanting the same thing but scared to reach out too quickly. The suspense and stirring adventure are not overshadowed by the romance, and the thrilling conclusion is wonderfully enhanced by Fuzz and a number of unusual and fasinating characters. Could not put it down. I have already reread it 4 times. (UNBELIEVABLE for me.) I usually don't like to read a book that continues a relationship, but this one is perfect. This is a keeper. And be sure to get "After Dark" also.

This was another fun and involved look into the world of Harmony. Lydia Smith stumbles on another murder early in the book and Emmett London finds her soon after, at the murder site once again. It reads more like a chap book than a stand alone novel, so if you haven't read again 'After Dark'. I'd recommend reading it first.

Okay, so a lot of folks have complained about how "weird" Ms. Krentz's sci-fi romance stories are; all the "rezzing" of doors and cars, the silly exchange of words to describe Old Earth Tales(like "Amberella" for Cinderella), the comments about oversized amber compensating for other things by swaggering macho Guild men. Take out all that stuff, and we still have a basic fun JAK story; a strong willed woman meets strong but silent man who keeps everything in: Sparks fly, snappy dialog flung everywhere, he finds his inner hero, and they have great sex. Come on, this is the second exposure of the Dust Bunny, the six toed, four eyed wad of dryer lint that is really a master predator! Fluff is really the star of this show, just like in "After Dark". Who wouldn't want a pet who can find their friends immediately, eats pretzels and can kill? Lydia and Emmett are awfully nice too, and they even make it legal! It's a good one to pick up to understand all the later Harmony titles, so don't be too harsh on it.

Jayne Ann has been doing trilogies - cranking out three books for a set of characters, and outside her Eclipse Bay, the first one is so good, second two suck! REALLY.
However, it's with her Harmony books Jayne Ann really returns to her top form. They are fresh, funny and show she still have the magic. So STOP WASTING TIME ON JUNK and write were you show the same spark of romance and delight in the genre.
PLEASE. These characters were so warm, real, sexy and loving. What you other books are missing.

I have been so disappointed in nearly the last 1/2 dozen books from this author. Seems like in courting the mainstream sales she snubbed her nose at Romance and the fans who adored her. The books were so FLAT.
But ZOWEY!!!!! This book is right on target. A (FINALLY) sequal to After Dark (which I loved, just felt unfinished because it WAS!).
I got out After Dark and read it back to back with After Glow and POW SIZZLE CRACKLE...romance is back, sexy and so LOVING!!!!
MORE MORE Harmony tales, PLEASE!!!

I loved the book that came before this AFTER DARK, but I had nearly forgotten about it since it was written nearly 4 years ago. So when I read this, I was delighted to find it was a continuation to the story.
It's funny, is Jayne Anne Krentz are her top form and I hope this means there will be more Harmony books coming!

I loved this sequel to After Dark - good romance (in other words, some tension and some humor), intriguing mystery, and interesting secondary characters (e.g. her pet) all set in a believable otherworld. Fans of Jayne Anne Krentz writing as Jayne Castle should not be disappointed.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
On the planet Harmony, seven months ago parapsychologist Lydia Smith's life collapsed when she was lost in the catacombs beneath the city. She blames her lost weekend in which she remembers nothing on the ghost hunters whom she believes deserted her, but they say she made an unauthorized dangerous move without their protection. Now instead of a rising career, she works at Shrimpton's House of Ancient Horrors and ironically loves her roommate Emmett London, a ghost hunter.
Emmett wants to marry Lydia in a convent marriage, but does not tell her how much he loves her because he fears her bias towards ghost hunters will thwart his dreams. When his biological father, Mercer Wyatt, head of the local ghost hunter guild, is almost killed and is hospitalized, Emmett takes over the leadership. He is unaware the danger he places himself and his beloved in and that her lost weekend and a colleague's final warning in death are tied to a threat that wants him out of the way.
Science fiction romantic suspense fans will fully appreciate Jayne Castle's latest HARMONY tale that lives up to its title by leaving the audience with a contented AFTER GLOW. The story line is loaded with action as the lead duet struggles with understanding the forewarning message hidden in a milk container while unraveling a conspiracy involving local guild. The romance between Lydia and Emmett adds depth as readers obtain more insight into the social customs of a wonderfully magical place.
