Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-In Shadowlands (Hyperion, 2012), Rory Miller, her father, and her sister are put in witness protection after she survives an attack by a serial killer. Here, she finds out that she's a Lifer, someone assigned to usher people to the afterlife-to the Light or the Shadowlands-and Juniper Landing is actually a "way station" for people before they move on. Lifers are made by performing selfless acts. In Rory's case, it was killing the serial killer after he caught up with the family before they reached witness protection. Now her relationship with her sister is strained because she cannot tell her or their father about their fate because it would automatically sentence them to the Shadowlands. If that weren't enough of a challenge, bad things start happening after Rory's arrival-plants are dying, hornets show up, and people get sick-signs that a Lifer is "going bad." Then all the people who are ushered, even the completely good ones, are sent to the Shadowlands. Something is definitely going wrong and Rory and her friends are determined to track down the culprits and recover the people who were incorrectly ushered. Although the book can stand alone, most readers will find the beginning confusing unless they have read the first one, but expect them to clamor for the next in the series. Give it to patrons who like their mysteries and suspense with a paranormal twist.-Suanne B. Roush, Osceola High School, Seminole, FLα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

From Booklist

At the conclusion of Shadowlands (2013), Rory Miller discovered the true nature of the swanky resort island of Juniper Landing: it’s a limbo for the deceased to deal with unfinished business before they move on to the Light or to the Shadowlands. This time, Rory finds out that she is one of the Lifers, chosen to usher souls to their final destination. Being a Lifer is a forever thing; Tristan, Rory’s enigmatic crush, has been one since 1766. But disturbing changes on the usually changeless island herald a coming evil: one of the Lifers is breaking the rules, sending good souls to undeserved torment in the Shadowlands, and some Lifers think Rory is responsible. This suspenseful sequel further expands the island’s mystery and creates some emotional family scenes for Rory; her romantic angst, however, feels out of place among more serious events. Interludes from the rogue Lifer add little of significance to the story, which ends with another cliff-hanger that, though somewhat unsatisfying, will nevertheless create buzz for the third book. Grades 8-11. --Krista Hutley

And truthfully, you won’t enjoy this book as much if you don’t read the first book.

Even though I really enjoyed Hereafter, it was a little predictable at times.

*****THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST NOVEL IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT. AND IF YOU HAVEN'T WHY ARE YOU READING A REVIEW FOR THE SECOND BOOK??????*****

So, I know a lot of people didn't enjoy the first novel in this series as much as I did. But I read purely for joy and happily overlook plot holes and other things if the novel entertains me. Most of the time, this is easy. Not as easy in this novel. ****If you haven't read the first novel, there will be spoilers from that novel***. So, who is the bad guy or what do you do with your characters when you kill off the bad guy in the first book? Well, you have to come up with something even more sinister, and it is. It's a good idea.

This novel is once again told from Rory's point of view with the exception of several one page interruptions of someone writing from their own point of view. This person doesn't reveal their identity. It is creepy and you'd almost believe Steven Nell was alive if you hadn't seen him killed in the last novel. But the author leads you heavily along as to who it is. And at the end of the novel - What? Oh no, not him! Of course, with such heavy pointing towards him being the bad guy, I'm sure in the next novel we will come to find out he is not the bad guy. However, it does make me wonder who the villain is???

Rory is herself as she was in the last novel. She knows a huge secret about her life as well as that of everyone else's on the island but if she tells it will harm them all, including herself. So yeah, that's kind of heavy. But she is also tip toeing around the boy she likes, Tristan, because he's very mysterious. (blech) Darcy, Rory's sister, is still an insecure, jealous child.

O.M.G. this book!!

It started off kind of slow with the first few chapters, but as it went on, it got better! And by the end I was so not wanting to put it down!

In the middle of the book, I began to grow suspicious of one of my favorite characters in the book and found out I was right. And from the beginning I was already suspicious of one I didn't like very much. I was right about them too. I did take a peak at the end after I got suspicious of one of the characters and realized early I was right. But, even if I hadn't peaked, one part confirmed my suspicions. (Yes, I peaked because I just couldn't handle the suspense but I wasn't expecting it to actually give it away like it did! lol)

But even with my peak, the book still wasn't ruined for me. This book, for me, was just amazing!

A little bit of spooky but of course not overdone. Just enough to creep you out a little.

There are no real words to say how I am really feeling about this book. Even if their were, this 'review' would probably go on forever.

All the characters in this book made you either really love some people or hate them. And there were some who really redeemed themselves and that I fell in love with another one in particular, Joaquin, and began replacing my other favorite.

I really would like to see Joaquin & Rory get together by the end of the next book. But, unfortunately, Endless isn't due to come out until July 2014. I guess that's not too much of a long wait and at least I won't have to wait a year or more to get my hands on it! I can't wait to see how this trilogy concludes!

I was shocked by where book 1 ended up going, and not super excited for book 2, but I can't not finish a series. Decently written, definitely a different story line, but not sure I'm very fond of it. Will still read book 3, as I have to know how it ends. Definitely more of a YA series.

I had no idea where Kate Brian was going to take this series after the first book. To be frank, I was worried about it because I wasn’t sure there was any where to really go since I found the first book fantastic. That being said I wasn’t going to let my doubts stop me from reading Hereafter and thank goodness. Brian made a believer out of me with her ability to tell a straightforward story and to keep the audience guessing. Because Hereafter was a guessing game for me and I loved every minute of it.

Hereafter picks up almost exactly where Shadowlands has left off. Rory, having just found out the truth about Juniper Landing and the fate of her family, is reeling and trying to put the pieces together. But the more Rory learns about the picturesque island, the more questions she has and the more afraid she is of what’s to become of her family. And when weird things start happening and fingers start pointing Rory has to decide what is really important to her and more importantly, who she can trust.

Like I said, I was worried. After how Shadowlands ended I had no idea where you could go with this story. The mystery was gone, or at least I thought. Brian actually surprised me with where she managed to go with this story and the twists and turns it took. Every time I thought I had it figured out, and I basically thought this about every 3 pages, I would start to question my resolve and doubt everything I thought I knew. By the time I finished this incredibly woven story I don’t think I knew which end was up. The characters were interesting and mysterious and you never really knew whether they were on the up and up or if they were hiding something and I loved that feeling. I rarely get that when I read a book so Hereafter was a nice refreshing change of pace.
