About the Book:

Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.

Hereafter was a thrill ride from start to finish. I have been raving about it while anxiously anticipating the second book's release. Well, IT'S HERE! Arise was very thing that I had expected, and after running through it full speed I am in waiting again. Arise picks up shortly after the conclusion of book one. Amelia and Jason had finally found their comfort, or at least as comfortable as a couple can be when one of them happen to be dead. Although, as with all awesome reads their comfort is short lived when Amelia finds everything is not what it seemed. Just when they believe that the danger is no longer lurking; we discover no only are they lurking but they may have just gotten a little smarter. After they witnessed the display from the end of book one; it seems that Amelia is of more interest than was previously considered. With the dark ones building a plan against her, and her desires to keep everyone she loves safe the game plans slightly shift. As if her life wasn't complicated enough she also finds herself on the receiving end of a voodoo ritual that will change everything she has come to know and learn about her afterlife. It seems as though Amelia is destined to sink or swim through her afterlife. Throughout all of this turmoil, it appears the one thing Amelia needs to realize is knowing who to trust. While trying to protect her loved ones she may just miss the answers that lay right in front of her. Arise has left most everything in a heaping mess, and readers will be desperate for answers. So, if you need me I will be here waiting for the next one. BookWhisperer Recommended Series
