After Midnight is nothing that I'd typically find my "type" of book: it's not a traditional romance (the MC's have a bit of a contemptuous relationship) and I'm not sure if any of the characters are actual likable and it's set in a dystopian world...BUT IT WORKED FOR ME! *scratch my head*
Romance be damned - the 2 MC's have a crazy sexual tension and every interaction, whether hate-filled, confused, mocking...WAS HOT. And by the end, you'll shock even yourself, that they somehow became a couple you're ROOTING for!
Likable characters be damned - Gordon is an antihero. He's insecure. He's a brat. He tries too hard. He's needy. And he would not admit to any of that. And by the end, you'll shock even yourself, that you're overwhelmed by the need to care for him, protect him, hang out with him, be his bestie (get out of the way Carla...there's a new BFF in town...ME!) And Adam...three words...I WANT MORE.
Dystopian world be damned - Something about Santino Hassell's writing transforms you to that time and place and makes you feel like you're right in the middle of it. I felt this way in ICoS and I felt this way in this book as well. And by the end, you'll shock even yourself, that it didn't feel fictional...it felt like just another town for some reason.
Now, I have to admit that the book started a bit slow for me, but picks up quickly once the 2 MC's finally meet. And to be truthful, the sap in me wishes there was MORE Gordon & Adam time and, you know, one of those perfectly wrapped up "and they lived happily ever after..."s. (There had BETTER be another book after this that extends the story...PLEASE!)
But, I found the book captivating, satisfying, and I highly recommend it.
Cannot get enough of these books.
I read the ICoS series recently and at the end of Fade I was dying for more. This book is a spin-off of ICoS.
Let me tell you: this writer impresses me to no end. The way he dominates the language, his narrative is freaking flawless! And he has such a way to describe some stuff. There's a whole new kind of violent in this book. Sexy violent. LOVED IT!
I have to say, I liked this book a lot. It was dense, just like I imagined it would be. It takes place in the same world created in ICoS. And there are character cameos from the main series like Carhart and Sin *grinning* and the dude that attacked Boyd in the first book *ugh* and guess what? We see a lot more of Chance (And I'm still not impressed)
The characters in this book Gordon and Adam are both very flawed but perfect to make us feel all kinds of emotions.
Gordon is an outgoing, sexy, trouble maker red head. And Adam is an assassin with a conscience.
The first half of the book focuses on explaining the world, which kind of bored me a little because I already knew what the world looked like, but I guess for people that are not familiar with the main series this was a smart thing to do.
Back to the characters. Gordon reminds me a lot of Emilio, even the way he talks, and even some situations such as being extremely 'available'.
At times, Adam seemed like Sin but then again there cannot be another Sin. Ever!
Any way, the story is basically about how the two characters came to be together, and it was, well, perfect.
Now we need a part two explaining what they're up to. Because a lot of issues weren't solved. We know (kind of) what happens to them eventually thanks to Fade, but it would be nice to actually read all the details.
I found this to be a nice companion novel to that ICoS series. We've seen Adam from the very beginning of Evenfall: Volume 1: Director's Cut as one of the potential candidates to partner with the infamously dangerous assassin, Hsin Liu Vega, and only mentioned throughout the books until Adam and Gordon have an entire scene together with Boyd in Fade.
I really enjoyed this backstory to their relationship, because their relationship was an intriguing addition to the ICoS books that never really went in-depth about how a standoffish, introvert like Adam ever managed to get together with an outspoken guy like Gordon. Like the ICoS series, After Midnight isn't lacking in action, violence, sex, or heart-wrenching moments, but it does end happier than I expected. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who has already read the ICoS series, and I think this story could definitely work as a standalone as well.
