Editorial Reviews


Praise for HEREAFTER: Twisting together chilling mystery and sweet romance, HEREAFTER leaves the possibilities of a world unseen lingering in your mind and your heart long after you've turned the final page. (Andrea Cremer, New York Times bestselling author of Nightshade )

Praise for HEREAFTER: A tender and poignant love story with a ghostly twist. (Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of HUSH, HUSH )

With a lush and vibrant new setting, fans of the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Little, Brown) will find a similarly haunting, atmospheric feel in the tortured romance of the Hereafter series. (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

Again, Hudson earns a spot in the paranormal-romance front ranks, with a fast-unfolding plot and intriguing characters. Leaving small-town Oklahoma for New Orleans might be a bad move for Amelia, but it’s great for readers. A creditable second act; genre fans won’t be disappointed. (Kirkus)

From the Back Cover

New Orleans
Saint Louis
Number One Cemetery
A night there can change a life . . . or a death.

Increasingly worried that dark spirits will carry out their threats and hurt the people she cares for most, Amelia is ready to try anything to protect them. And for his own very different reasons, Joshua has come to this cemetery at midnight to join her in a powerful ritual.

Both know that once Amelia steps inside the Voodoo circle and the beautiful girl from the Conjure Café begins the cere­mony, everything will change.

Tara Hudson's enthralling sequel to Hereafter escalates the danger and excitement, bringing a new dimension to her already mesmerizing story of a haunted love.

First, let me state that I did not read Hereafter, the first book in this series. So, as it may be, I am a Hereafter Virgin. With that said, I had no expectations with this book. I liked the synopsis of it and it seemed like a fun read.

Let me explain. At first I thought this would be a great idea. Jumping into the middle of the series can be a great, refreshing point of view for any title. Expectations from the previous book in a series can mar expectations and opinions based on the outcome of the first title. Although, those expectations can be important, they can play a heavy roll to how fulfilling the conclusions from the first book were.

The problem is, after reading the reviews through Goodreads, to see what I was missing, Arise seems to suffer from middle book syndrome. To be fair, I did not experience this probably because I did not read the first installment. I can appreciate the frustration though. Multiple other book series have this issue at some point in the series. Since I was coming into the middle of the series, I felt that Arise was fun and new.

So please, bear that in mind. In fact, I may ask you to reference other reviews as well.

Arise is a fun filled novel with a confusing romance plot line. I gather that the two main characters, Josh and Amelia, are madly in love. But through a good chunk of the book, they tend to spend a lot of time apart and, what seems like some fighting and arguing was going on. I'm not a big fan of romance, insta-love books. I do appreciate how, though the characters still love each other, they spend a good deal of time in turmoil. It's a bit sensationalized, but more realistic compared to real and built love stories. Nothing is ever perfect.

The cast of characters were amazing.

Let's just start with the cover, because I always feel I should comment on that first, to get it out of the way. This cover is gorgeous and goes well with the cover of book number one, Hereafter. It's no secret that I think HarperTeen rules the publishing world when it comes to covers, and this is a prime example. Beautiful, eerie, and relevant to the story. Another win by the cover people at HarperTeen.

Now for what is between the pretty covers... I loved this book's predecessor, Hereafter.. Arise was one of my most eagerly anticipated sequels of 2012, and I was beyond thrilled to get an advance copy of it (Thanks, HarperTeen!!). Hereafter ended with a lot of answers to the mysteries surrounding Amelia's life, death, and afterlife, but it also left me with a lot of questions... My biggest question was, "How do a ghost and a living human manage to have an intimate, fulfilling relationship without people thinking he is crazy?" Well, Arise answers that question and many more as the story within takes us from Oklahoma to the most haunted city in the United States, New Orleans...

I'm pretty certain I liked Arise even more than I liked Hereafter, and Hereafter was a pretty tough act to follow. I've always been a fan of ghost stories, and I've always been fascinated with the practices of Voodoo and the way religion is so deeply intertwined. Arise picks up right where Hereafter left off, and the story and the mysteries within intensify as Voodoo is brought into the mix. We meet some new characters and we get to know some of the characters from Hereafter a little better, for better of for worse. In fact, one of the things I liked about Arise was that you never REALLY knew who to trust... Were the good guys really good, and were the bad guys really bad?

Format: Hardcover
Relationships for the living are hard enough, when one of the two is a ghost, things seem doomed from the start. Amelia afterlife has gotten much better since she met Joshua and battled back the demons who would have claimed her. But their relationship isn't easy as they can't ever get physically close without risking Amelia's dematerialization. As they seek out help they find some answers, but those only lead to more issues, making Amelia start to really question their longevity, and Joshua all the more desperate to hold on to her.

The relationship between Ameila and Joshua really comes to a head in Arise, both in a good and bad way. There are so many insecurities on both sides, and yet their love is so powerful, almost to the point where neither one knows how to handle it. For Amelia, the realization that Joshua will never have a full life while he is with her really hits hard, especially as he continues to give up so much for her. She starts to drift away from him even as it kills her in order to protect him. Of course this makes Joshua desperate to hold onto her and makes him do something a little rash that will have irreparable consequences for both of them. My heart went out to the both of them, but honestly, I think a lot of their problems would have been solved, or a least greatly lessened by just a little more communication.

When I first read the description for some reason I read "Gabrielle" as the male version "Gabriel" which made me think a dreaded love triangle was coming. Of course that went out the window once I realized Gaby was a girl, or ghost for that matter. Her character really added something to this trilogy, filling the vacuum of the confidant Amelia so greatly needed. She's quirky and a whole lot of fun.
