There are 5 hunky men who were in some sort of stasis for 50 years, during which mankind and the planet was apparently decimated. Add to that premise--the men seem to have acquired some strange abilities. This story was about Elliot, but the rest of the series will probably feature the other men of the group. The plot will will carry through the following books, as this one just resolved Elliot and Jade's HEA.
It wasn't perfect. The apocalypse wasn't always treated in a logical manner; science was kind of an afterthought. The Paranormal aspects seemed to be added to explain what science didn't. The romance was almost ridiculous, as the pair fell in love in less than 3 days. When they finally had sex (which seemed like forever, because there was a lot of action going on in those three days), they had it while there was a bloody, dead body in Elliot's tub. Really? Insensitive much?
But through it all, I remained interested because of the World and the characters. I will likely continue the series.
There are usually three things I want in a story to make me happy. A good plot, good characters, and action/suspense that keeps me guessing. Beyond the Night has all three. I’m not going into details because frankly, there are a lot of layers that need to be discovered as they happen. And that is what I loved about it. All those layers! As the first book in the series, yes there needs to be a lot of ground work detailing which for some folks may be tedious and boring. Me, I live for it. I like all the background build up, the attention to detail but still there is a lot to discover as the series unfolds. To top it off there’s a whole lot of action and suspense that keeps the story moving fast and me happy and guessing.
There’s quite a few characters to get to know. Mainly they revolve around five guys from the past. This story is Elliott’s. His and Jade’s that is. Two strong characters that I instantly liked. Jade was great and yet a little quirky with her always needing to be in control but it was Elliott that really held my fascination. His ‘gift’, oh boy. Ironic considering he is/was a doctor. How he learns to deal with it was yikesy and exciting to me although there is a moment with a crystal that had me head scratching. The heat between them was at the right temperature without pushing this post-apocalyptic romance into the tacky trashy realm. There’s also a whole slew of secondary character. Thankfully all the other characters are not just drive-by fillers instead they add substance to the storyline that had me begging to know they story as well.
I friend has suggested this series was right up my alley and that I would enjoy it. Yup, loved it. Already started telling my book buds this one is a keeper and they need to read it. Beyond the Night by Colleen Gleason is the perfect read for anyone looking to try out a post-apocalyptic/dystopian romance. Counting the days until I can start the next book.
Note: The Heroes of New Vegas was formerly written as Joss Ware, and known as The Envy Chronicles which is where I first read this book.
