Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This imaginative follow-up to Castle's sci-fi novel After Dark (2000) revisits the futuristic world of Harmony, a planet discovered when an energy field in space opened, providing a gate between Earth and several other inhabitable worlds. The novel picks up where the last book left off, with gifted detangler Lydia Smith dealing with amnesia and recovering from her Lost Weekend in the catacombs beneath the Dead City. Desperate to reconstruct the lost days, Lydia responds to an urgent call from her old college professor, who claims to have news regarding those days. She arrives to find him murdered, and the only clue to the killer's identity is a vague message hidden inside a milk carton. On the brighter side, Lydia's romance with ghost-hunter Emmett London has progressed, and she still has Fuzz, a four-eyed, six-legged dust-bunny who remains her devoted protector. Those unfamiliar with this world will struggle to understand Lydia's predicament and decipher the book's jargon ("she could not summon ghost light, but she could de-rez the danger snares of illusion shadow that the long-vanished aliens had left behind"). In a letter to readers, Castle recommends this book to those who "relish [their] romantic suspense with a paranormal twist," but paranormal romance readers and even fans of far-future romances will likely find this terrain too tough to navigate unless they've read Castle's previous book. (Mar.) Forecasts: With its electric-green cover image, this book will stand out like a beacon on the shelves, but it isn't likely to approach the success of Nora Roberts's futuristic In Death series.

Library Journal
Returning to the world of Harmony (After Dark), where psychic powers are commonplace and danger comes in both human and alien forms, Castle (a.k.a. Jayne Ann Krentz) picks up the lives of para-archaeologist Lydia Smith and "ghost-hunter" Emmett London, a powerful psychic who can neutralize the deadly balls of random energy, or "ghosts," often found at excavation sites. Here she provides them with a set of old and new challenges (including a marriage of convenience that eventually evolves into something else!) and lets the fun begin. Lively humor, a wonderfully imaginative setting, a dash of danger, and Castle's classic sensuality are here in full measure and should appeal to readers who enjoy fast-paced futuristic romances with a paranormal touch. Series fans (and animal lovers) will be pleased to note that Fuzz, Lydia's pet dust-bunny and a most intriguing creature, makes a return appearance. Castle, or Krentz, also writes as Amanda Quick and lives in the Seattle area. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

The tiny burner and he little bowl next to the body told the sad story. Professor Lawrence Maltby had finally managed to kill himself. Judging by the dark residue and the lingering scent of exotic spices, he had done himself in with a common street drug known as Chartreuse.

Lydia Smith left the doorway of the shabby bedroom that Maltby had converted into a study and crouched beside the professor's scrawny, crumpled form. She did not expect to find a pulse, and when she put her fingertips to the throat beneath the scraggly white beard, she proved herself right.

She shivered, rose quickly, stepped back, and reached into her shoulder bag for her personal phone. Her fingers trembled when she punched out the emergency number.

"Yes, that's right," she said, to the overstressed operator. "Humber Thirteen, Hidden Lane. First floor, apartment A. It's in the Old Quarter near the Wall."

"I'm sorry, ma'am, but that street isn't coming up on my city grid," the operator said brusquely. "Are you sure about the address?"

"Yes, I'm sure. Hidden Lane isn't on most city maps." Lydia took another step from the body. "Probably why they named it Hidden Lane. Look, just tell the medics to take Dead City Way to South Wall Street and turn left at the tavern on the corner. Once they're in the neighborhood, anyone can give them directions."

"All right." There was a short silence before the woman came back on the line. "They're on the way. I'm also sending a police car since you say there's a body."

The operator sounded as if she wasn't at all certain that Lydia could tell the difference between a dead body and the other sort.

"There is definitely a dead man in this apartment. Trust me, I've seen one before."

"Do not under any circumstances leave the scene, ma'am. Since you're the one who found the body, there will be a few formalities."

Formalities. Lydia felt the hair on the nape of her neck stir much the same way it had a few minutes ago when she had walked into Maltby's gloom-filled apartment and realized that something was horribly wrong.

In her experience formalities was not a good word.

Just a few formalities was the phrase the pompous members of the Academic Council had used to describe the farce of a formal inquiry they had staged before they had fired her from her position at the university seven months ago.

We need to go through some formalities, was how the police detective in charge of the investigation into Chester Brady's murder last month had termed the grilling that Lydia had been obliged to endure.

It wasn't her fault that she had been the first person to stumble across Chester's body in that ancient alien sarcophagus, she thought. And there was no reason to hold her responsible for the fact that she had been the first one to find Maltby's body today.

It was just her bad luck that she had walked in on this mess, she told herself. It could have been anyone. The door of Maltby's apartment had been unlocked when she had arrived a few minutes ago, so naturally she had put her head inside to call his name. After all, he was the one who had asked her to stop by his place this morning.

"Look, this isn't a crime scene or anything," she said quickly. "Professor Maltby wasn't murdered. It looks like he OD'd on Chartreuse. There's no point in having me stick around to answer a lot of questions. I don't have any answers."

The operator was unmoved. "I'm sorry, ma'am, but rules are rules. Stay right where you are until the police and the medics arrive."

"Yeah, sure." Lydia ended the call abruptly. She glanced once more at the body and then quickly looked away.

A knock sounded loudly on the front door of the apartment, shattering the unnatural stillness of the death room.

She hesitated, uncertain whether or not to respond. She still didn't hear any sirens, which ruled out the possibility that Maltby's visitor was a medic or a cop. Given the character of the neighborhood, that left a lot of unpleasant possibilities.

She pondered the wisdom of simply ignoring the knock. Then she recalled that the door was unlocked. Whoever was out there in the hall might decide to try his luck with the knob at any moment.

It would probably be a really good idea to go into the front room and lock the door.

She hurried out of the study, went down the short hall, and traversed the dingy sitting room on tiptoe. There was a peephole in the heavily reinforced door. Trying not to give away her presence, she put her eye to the little circle of glass. At the same time she reached out to throw the bolt.

She stopped when she saw the man standing in the shadowy hall. A day's growth of dark beard, scarred boots, rugged khaki pants and shirt, and a battered leather jacket added up to one conclusion. This was the kind of guy who looked like he'd make an interesting date if you were in a mood to take a walk on the wild side, but you would definitely not want to run into him in a dark alley on a moonless night.

His eyes were a disturbing combination of gold and green. He had the hard, implacable features of a man who was accustomed to being in command.

She yanked open the door and threw herself into Emmett's arms.

"You don't know how glad I am to see you," she said into his shirt. "How did you find me?"

"I called your office. Melanie told me you were here." He put an arm around her shoulders and glanced back to check the grimy hallway. Satisfied, he moved both of them into the apartment and closed the door. "What the hell are you doing in this part of town?"

"Maltby, the man who lives here, said he wanted to see me. When I arrived I found him lying on the floor of his study." She took a deep breath. "He's sort of dead."

Emmett looked pained. "Not another one."

She frowned. "This isn't like the last time. It looks like Maltby took an overdose of Chartreuse. I called for an ambulance." She sighed. "Not that it will do any good."

"Where is he?"

The stoic resignation in his voice annoyed her. "You don't have to act as if I make a habit of finding dead bodies." She waved a hand toward the study. "He's in the room down that hall."

Emmett walked to the doorway of the study. She trailed after him, clutching her purse.

"This is not good," Emmett said.

"Yes, well, it's a lot worse for Maltby."

"That's not what I meant. Some complications have come up. The last thing we need right now is a dead body."

He disappeared into the study.

    Readers of Jayne Castle¿s Harmony books are sure to love the sequel to ¿After Dark¿!

    “After Glow” continues where “After Dark” left off and now Lydia is once again caught up in a murder investigation.

    “After Glow” really ties up all of the loose ends from the first book and readers get to see more of Lydia and Emmett and of course the loveable dustbunnies. I really liked how this book was written. The storyline kept me just as enraptured as the first and maybe even more so with the current developments in Lydia and Emmett’s relationship.

    The budding relationship between Lydia and Emmett was really the highlight of the book. I was thrown into the rollercoaster of emotions brought out in this book with the characters and I loved every minute of it.

    Readers of Jayne Castle’s Harmony books are sure to love the sequel to “After Dark”!

    Big fan of her Castle books

    I love Jayne's Harmony and really got so depressed thinking she would never go back to it, I mean it been FOUR YEARS. Worse, having to suffer through her limp Quick trilogy and the started out good then went to limp noodle Whispering Springs book, I am in desperate needs of a GOOD Jayne read.<BR/><BR/>And WOW...this is Emmett and Lydia's story continued. I loved After Dark. Know there were some whines when it came out, but the market is just now exploding with great writers writing in this same vein like <BR/>I read this, and you can read it alone, but I went and got my After Dark out and really enjoyed it again.<BR/><BR/>Followed by more in the dust bunny series

    Good quick reading.

    This is the second in the series on Harmony and if you like romantic science fiction then this is the author and a very good series to start with. I would suggest they are best read in order though it is not totally necessary.

    Great Series!!!

    I'm almost finished with the 2nd book in this series and it is hard to put it down. It seems to just pull you into the action so you want to keep reading to find out what happens next.
    I can not wait to start number 3 in the series!

    Why not available as an ebook?

    All other books in this series are available as eBooks to download to my Nook. Why not this one? It seems really stupid to offer all but one book in a series (and that one is neither the first nor the last). B&N needs to get on the ball with ALL series and be sure they are offered as eBooks IN ORDER and not just hit and miss. That just spoils the whole point of having a complete library of eBooks! Very disappointing.

    Must Read

    I just read this one, loved it! I can't wait to snap up the rest of this series.
    The gang we all met the first time around is back, as well as some great new characters, from allies to enemies, very interesting. Poor Lydia has no luck and dead people just seem to find her. Emmett too for that matter, he's always just behind her. Lol. Her hunter beau is deeply in love w/her and he wants to make it last, but when the Guild gets involved, things get even more complicated. We also get a shocking revelation about him and Wyatt. Which leads so some other very wild developments. We learn just how clever Lyd can really be and how she can get her way. She also ends up w/Guild fans and w/how much she dislikes the Guild this turns out to be highly amusing. We find Emmett has a little jealous streak that makes me giggle and the head of security is so easy going and unassuming, it's an odd match that makes me really enjoy the addition of his character. We also get more depth into Detective Martinez and find she's got a sense of humor. There's a tomb adventure, rescue and a very impressive discovery. And what about Dust Bunnies? Does Fuzz have a psy ability? But ah, this is not the end of the story. There has to be a twist ending right? Plus a touching wedding thrown in for good measure. And I absolutely adore the ending.

    JOYCE BEAN DELIVERS A TOPNOTCH READING

    Kick back, relax, shift your mind to cruise and enjoy Joyce Bean's topnotch reading of After Glow. Under stated, sincere Bean almost makes you believe in the paranormal and, of course, solidifies your belief in the endless possibilities of romance. An Audie Award winner with four Audie medallions and a host of Earphone Awards, Bean is the consummate narrator always seeming to reflect the author's intentions with not only words but intonations and nuances.

    Speaking of authors, After Glow is penned by Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne Castle. Evidently, she quickly recognized the popularity of both romance books and titles dealing with the paranormal so she gives us both - a romance spiced with the other worldly.

    It would benefit listeners to be familiar with the first in this series but lacking that we know that Lydia and Emmett (a British ghost hunter) are a couple. She is a para-archeologist who lost her museum job and now finds herself working at a really rundown museum (think of something along the old Route 66. ) Unfortunately that's not all of Lydia's bad luck - she also has a tendency to find dead bodies, and somehow when she was wandering about the catacombs beneath Cadence City she lost her memory. There's also the question of whether or not the planet Harmony left any aliens behind.

    Emmett cannot be the pillar she needs at this point in her life as he has challenges of his own, nonetheless nothing diminishes the attraction they feel for one another.

    Didn't I tell you, romance and the paranormal - plenty of both. Enjoy!

    - Gail Cooke

    Break out the dust bunnies, kids!! Fluff the original is here!

    I bought this atory, but it was a part of a '2-fer' called 'Harmony'. It was this particular title, plus one called 'Bridal Jitters'. As much as I enjoyed the second title, I especially loved After Glow, mainly because it premiers the ultimate in pets, the many legged multiple eyed dust bunny. As cute as they are, it seems that no one in Harmony ever thought of them as pets, as they hunt with those extra eyes in the dark, are carnivores and have teeth that any pit bull cringe in fear and admiration(no nasty letters from the pit bull fans. I love them too, they make great pets, but in the wrong(evil) hands they are loose cannons). As fantastic as the story is, and how brave and sexy the lead characters are, I'm afraid Fluff steals every scene, and pretty much dominates the entire book. Maybe it's the blue eyes that are so eloquent, or how so much expression Ms. Krentz puts into Fluff's face and body language. I'm going to buy this title as a stand alone in my library and pray for more stories out of Harmony that compliment this, the past titles about life on Harmony, and the Ghost Hunter novel. I say if we had more dust bunnies in our lives, we'd be much happier(the pets not the dust).

    brilliant Jayne Ann Krentz off-world romp!

    After Jayne Ann's last three efforts under her Krentz name and Quick penname, I was in despair. She is one of my favourite writers, but she had lost of heart, I feared. The books spent more time talking about food than romance, and her leads were tediously boring. In her aim to sell mainstream, she is killing her decades-long, devout romance fans with books that lack ROMANCE. Jayne needs to take time go back and read her own books such as ¿Wildest Hearts¿, ¿Family Man¿, and ¿Absolutely Positively¿, to get 'the mind scent back', find her roots. That said, this was - to me - was a 'make or break' book. If she did not come up with the old magic, I would likely move on to spend my monies on writers that are delivering. Well, I am SO DELIGHTED to say this book has the old Jayne Ann magic. And I hope this book is received better than the other 'Harmony Books'. I adored them all and see the JAK dazzle in there. It is in her off-world books ¿Amaryllis¿, ¿Orchard¿, ¿Zinnia¿ and ¿After Dark¿, where you can still find the old JAK magic that pulls at the heart, that makes you smile. These books were not well-accepted, because she was AHEAD of the pack. Futuristic books with J. D. Robb, Robin D. Owens, C. J. Barry - and the new Dorchester line coming with Susan Grant and Kathleen Nance's books kicking it off - are selling like hotcakes, showing off-world books are the cutting edge. Meaning everyone else is JUST NOW catching up with JAK. In this long awaited sequel to ¿After Dark¿ (2000), where we first met Emmett London and Lydia Smith, we pick up their lives a month after the pair had their last adventure. They have moved in together, with Emmett hoping to work Lydia into a Covenant Marriage, but fears Lydia's experience in the Alien Underground has permanently set her against 'ghost-hunters' - people with the talent to channel and control the residual energy left behind by the race that once lived on New Harmony. And since Emmett is one of the best ghost-hunters, he fears this could tip their relationship into shattering. Worse, the head of the Guild - (union/government) for the ghost-hunters - has been wounded and Emmett has to step into his place to keep things running smooth. Lydia is not happy with the limelight that is hitting Emmett as the new guild boss. especially not thrilled the press is dragging out the fact Emmett was engaged to marry the Guild's Boss wife. This prompts her to push Emmett into a MC - Marriage of Convenience - to protect him. Emmett is thrilled for he sees this as a chance to convince Lydia into making it a Covenant Marriage. It has all the JAK special characters, the romance, the adventure that marks her best works. After being so disappointed by her last three books - and I am hoping this is a new streak starting for JAK that show she can 'rez' them ghosts and fascinate us as she has for so long. It can be read alone, but you really should read ¿After Dark¿ to fully appreciate the fun. In fact, I suggest reading ¿Amarylliss¿, ¿Zinnia¿ and `Orchid¿, too! See JAK at her best! Great Return to Harmony - just don't make it so long before the next visit, Jayne Ann, because this is where you are shining!
