The plot is rather simple so far. The action scenes aren't bad, but the romance is rather weak. I enjoy Paranormal books, but for some reason this series just isn't grabbing me. I am not invested in the story enough, so I'm not sure if I'll continue. For me, it was just "OK".
This book was mushier than I expected it to be. We watch Rand fall in love, hence the title "Afterglow." It was a little weird to me because he kept saying in the first book that his dead wife (who had JUST died) had been the love of his life and his soulmate. It seemed a little quick for him to fall in love, but this is just my viewpoint. There is also the fact that he is on a mission to save his kidnapped daughter. Seems like he would eat, sleep, and breathe that until he found her, not having the heart for anything else but training. But again, that's just me.
There was action in this book, but I was expecting more. They are vampire hunters, after all.
Some of the plot seemed a little too predictable and convenient. Like who he meets on the train and the little bit of help he gets fighting a ton of vampires.
Overall, it was an entertaining read, but I think it could have been more developed in some places and less developed in others. For me, there was too much romance for the type of book it's supposed to be.
I would give 3 and a half stars if I could, so four stars because while there were story lines that didn't seem plausible to me, there were also story lines that intrigued me and made me want to know what happened.
It has a bit of everything you usually want from a book, the hero (humble and heroic all at once) , the heroine (strong and soft all at once), the tragedy to motivate the characters and emotionally grab the reader and let us not forget the "big evil thing". The you throw in some romance and poof, you got the great book that Afterglow was for me.
Rand has finally got a hint of where to find one of 3 vampires he needs to kill, the story to get to that point is great, the lady on the train was a nice touch (you got to read it to understand). The romance was a good way to soften the book a bit BUT I hate endings like this. It is and is not a cliffhanger since the main thrust of this book was accomplished but to leave us like that was evil :)
I guess I will just have to wait like everyone else and grab book #3 soon as it comes out. 5 Stars even though I want to hit something about now LOL
