    The second installment in the Undermountain Saga does not disapp

    The second installment in the Undermountain Saga does not disappoint. Edstrom continues with his compelling descriptions, creating many worlds so vivid that you feel like you are walking through them with the characters. His clear, flowing way with words allows you to flow seamlessly from world to world with the action of the story. He also uses this volume to give his reader a deeper understanding of the history of the various races involved in his story. This is worked right into the action of the story, not breaking up the flow at all.
    He also kicks the intensity of the novel up a notch with this installment. There is a great deal more suspense that builds throughout the novel. By the final page it has yet to dissipate, leaving you wanting the final installment. All emotions are also more intense in this novel. Edstrom’s grasp of the English language makes the fear, sadness, and happiness of the characters so clear that you feel it for yourself.
    Character development also carries on in this instalment. As all the characters in the novel are in their late teens, they have many real struggles to face. This includes relationship problems and concerns, which are apparent throughout the novel. These characters are all so real that you cannot help but picture them vividly. You want to help them through their struggles, but are too involved in the story to leave your chair.
    Afterlife kept me captivated throughout. It is entirely unique and placed in worlds so well developed that you spend the hours that you are reading walking along side the characters. Also, this novel leaves the reader set up for the final installment of the Undermountain Saga.

    I read Afterlife, the 2nd book in the Undermountain Series by Er

    I read Afterlife, the 2nd book in the Undermountain Series by Eric Edstrom in one day, and I must say I did so because I could not put it down. Suffice to say I was not at all disappointed. Our group of heroes must now confront the forces of evil they thought were left behind when they made it off the mountain in Book 1. Their journey takes them back to Undermountain and other unexpected places where extreme danger awaits. The evolution of Danny as the disinclined savior of mankind as well as the race of Bigfoots is an impressive one. Danny's loyalty, love and devotion to his friends and especially Breyona drive him to assume a leadership role and become that reluctant hero even as he struggles throughout the book with that decision. The book ends with Danny bearing many a battle scar but still fighting on because he know an even greater battle awaits. I'm highly anticipating Book 3 to see where our story concludes. I'll know I'll miss these characters when all is said and done.

    What I really about this series so far is that these are intelli

    What I really about this series so far is that these are intelligent YA books that don’t treat the reader like kids.

    Another of my favorite things is that the protagonists don’t seem to be perfect – Danny is seen to struggle with doubts concerning his girlfriend and realizes that if he cheats on her, he will be responsible for the consequences.

    Breyona,on the other hand, is learning that good intentions aren’t enough to make wise decisions when it comes to power.

    Shiv realizes that while acquisition of knowledge is a good thing, the path chosen to acquire it is very important.

    The books are about teenagers who must find their own path while dealing with issues much bigger than them.

    However, this book won’t be as effective, if read without reading the first one.

    This the second book has truly shocked, amazed, and left me spee

    This the second book has truly shocked, amazed, and left me speechless in so many ways that it's hard to describe. I think the only way to experience this is to read this book. Yes this ia sequel to Undermountain yet it also proves itself as a stand alone book too. I don't say that very often about books in a series yet it's very true for this book. Here are my thoughts about this book.

    Emma and Danny Michaelson are planning a trip to their grandmother's house in Indianapolis. Yet their plans hit a snag in the form of one person named Bronson. Neither Em or Danny trust Bronson but have no choice in taking him with them. Wa and Breyona are also going to be at Em and Danny's Grandmother's house. Wa is still a troublemaker as always. Breyona works with kids and teenagers in crisis which keeps her busy yet she still tries to be with Danny. Danny has been noticing a truck driving past his house alot in the last six weeks yet can't figure out what it's doing and doesn't want to worry anyone else with it. Danny and Wa are kidnapped leaving Grandma Michaelson, Em, Bronson, and Breyona alone in the house. Luckily for them that Grandma has the house wired with security showing them exactly what happened and reveals a stunning piece of information~that GorVit is behind the kidnapping. Em and Breyona know that the police can't help them find Danny and Wa. The must return to Undermountain. They make contact with Grizz and that they need to track GorVit down. Grizz helps Em and Breyona along with a reluctant Bronson along too. Breyona fears her meeting Shaggy again yet can do nothing about it. Breyona knows that Shaggy is up to something but can't put her finger on it. What does GorVit want with Danny and Wa? How can Em, Breyona, and Grizz find Danny and Wa? What is Shaggy's plan? Will either Danny or Breyona admit their feelings? Your answers await you in Afterlife.

    The second book in The Undermountain Saga was just as captivatin

    The second book in The Undermountain Saga was just as captivating as the
    first. Afterlife continues the story of all of our favorite characters
    from Undermountain, beginning about six months after the first book, as
    well as the return of our favorite bigfeet. The story begins with a bang
    and continues with fast-paced adventure throughout. I can't give
    enough praise to the author's descriptive writing style. He really knows
    how to manipulate words to bring the story to life and bring emotion and
    personality to the story. The characters are fun and unique. Even the
    villains in the story are so alive that you want to read more about
    them. I absolutely love the world these books are set in. The
    creativeness and complexity of the society is so much fun to read about,
    and the myths and legends are blended in nicely. I am very much looking
    forward to the next book in Undermountain series to see where the
    characters are taken.

    "Afterlife" is an action packed fantasy that you will

    "Afterlife" is an action packed fantasy that you will not want to put down. It is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing.

    Danny, Em, Wa, and Breyona are still dealing with the notoriety of their rescue from the Canadian Rockies. They plan to rendezvous at Danny and Em's grandma's house, but things go very wrong when they are attacked. Danny and Wa are kidnapped by minions of GorVit to help retrieve a weapon that could bring about the destruction of not only the bigfeet but also the human race. Will Danny be able to stop GorVit and protect the ones he loves?

    Through the author's creative descriptions, we are drawn into another world full of interesting creatures and ideas that will capture your imagination. I would highly recommend it and will be looking forward to what happens next in this adventure.
