Title: Afterlife
Author: Megg Jensen
Genre/s: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance


The fire inside Lianne threatened to consume her, but she fought back and won. Unfortunately the collateral damage of her decisions won’t stop haunting her. She embarks on a secret trip to find Mags and return her son, but her search leads her into another nest of lies.

Everyone’s safety is in Lianne’s hands as the Malborn, an enemy more fearsome than her own people, looms over them. Will Lianne be able to unravel the secrets in time to save the ones she loves the most? Or will her lack of faith in her own decisions lead to disaster?

Afterlife weaves some of the favorite characters from the Cloud Prophet Trilogy (Anathema, Oubliette, and Severed) into The Swarm Trilogy as Lianne comes face-to-face with a character introduced at the end of Severed.

My Thoughts:

Afterlife picks up where the Sleeper left off, The Dalagans now ruled the land of Fithia and Bryden and Lianne were considered as the heroes. But when Bryden and Lianne finally uncovered the true nature of their race they decided to runaway and find Mags, the former queen of Fithia and bestfriend of Lianne. 
Lianne did not only found Mags but she also found another race with magic and a mysterious guy who seemed to know all the things about her.

The second book is definitely better than the first. Lianne finally admitted to herself that her judgement can't be trusted and it somehow helped me move on with my issues with her character. It made me focus more on the story and I really enjoyed it.

There are more revelations, more lies, new enemies, new allies and a death of a love one. And there is a special makeover at the very end which will shock everyone. 

This is my favorite book in this series so far. I can't wait to read the third and last book in this series. 
My Rating
