Overview

Rory Miller thought her life was over when a serial killer set his sights on her and forced her into witness protection. But a fresh start on Juniper Landing Island was exactly what she and her family needed. For the first time in years she and her sister hang out at the beach, gossip about boys, and party together. She's also made friends with a local clique—including a magnetic and mysterious boy named Tristan. But Rory's world is about to change again. Picturesque Juniper Landing isn't what it seems. The truth about the swirling fog that rolls in each morning, the bridge that leads to nowhere, and those beautiful locals who seem to watch Rory's every move is more terrifying than being hunted by Steven Nell. And all Rory ever wanted was the truth. Even if it means learning that she can never go home again. From the best-selling author of the Private and Privilege series comes the second novel in a heart-stopping trilogy about a girl who must pick up the pieces after the only life she's ever known ends.

    With the ending of the last book, I knew I had to read this one. Not only is this book good, but it too also brought forth an unforgettable ending.

    Plot: Rory finds out exactly where she is and what she is to become. She begins to gain lots of knowledge and secrets that she must keep from her family. Throughout this story, it builds up nicely little by little with bit of drama and past history. Certain people’s motives become clear and others leave you unsure. This plot is full of entertainment and lots of questions.

    Love: This love interest is very complicated and carries lots of baggage. Little bits of Tristan’s past comes to light and it definitely left me intrigued as to what exactly is he hiding. Let just say that the ending brings an uncanny revelation that leave me jaw-dropped and heart broken. Tristan has a lot of explaining to do.

    Ending: The build up to the ending is the icing on the cake. When everything fell nicely together before the readers eyes and it click…BAM! Major OMG! I’m anxious for the next book cause I don’t want to believe that that is true! It can’t be. But if it is, well they had me fooled.

    Hereafter is an excellent addition that leaves you jaw-dropped. It is instantly captivating and excels in the plot Beautifully crafted into an amazing story, Hereafter is awesome!

    My Review~
    I received this Arc from the publisher in exchange for a honest unbiased review!
    I can't wait for the third book!!!!! This series is killing me!! At the end, you are questioning if you truly know the characters or are they a facade?! I would like to point out in this book that on the bad guy chapters it is generic so after reading who Rory thinks the person is might not be the actual person sending the good ones to the Shadowlands. I still have hope that it isn't Tristan. The mayor is on my bad list. There is something too suspicious about her, especially leaving at all the opportune moments. There are three suspects at the top of my list after reading this: the mayor, Nadia, and of course Tristan. But there are some other characters I can see it being. Do we really know them that well? This author done an amazing job on making all the characters have some type of suspicion around them. I love this book even better than Shadowlands. It is full of more mystery, suspense, and everything that made you fall in love with Shadowlands. This author has become one of my favorites due to this series. I will definitely have to read her other novels. I love the creepy stalker element in this series. The author done a good job continuing it. I absolutely can't wait to find out who is the person trying to go back to the real world!

    Kate Brian is amazing.

    I've been reading KB's books since I was 16, and they still never fail to keep me interested. First, the Private series and now with this trilogy, she really knows how to write a YA mystery novel. Great for readers of her previous work and new readers as well. I would definitely recommend it to any fans of YA mystery/thrillers. So many writers are clamoring to write the next "Hunger Games," and it's nice to read something different for a change.

    This is the sequel to Shadowlands an interesting YA tale.
    Now and again it was in danger of being a little bit drama-teen, as opposed to the conceptually strong story that the author brought to the table. Keeping the focus on the intricate details and the element of darkness will make all the difference between memorable series and yet another watered down YA story.
    The concept has enough variety to go in any direction. The town could be something other than what the Lifers think it is. Are the orders being handed down from some higher power or is someone else pulling the strings?
    Joaquin really stood out in this novel and I would rather see Rory with him than with soppy secretive Tristan, who can't be trusted as far as I am concerned.
    As for Darcy, well she needs to put her big girl panties on and stop acting like a brat.
    I would like to see the author give Rory a stronger attitude and personality to go with all those inner doubts and good gut instinct she has. Perhaps have her kick some butt instead of having to be rescued by the next available male every time she is in trouble.
    This is certainly a series I would recommend.
    I received a copy of this book via NetGalle

    Disappointing. This book was just disappointing. After loving Shadowlands, I was so happy that I got my hands on this one. Gorgeous cover, but horrible story. I just felt like this was a filler book. There wasn't much interesting, and it was just lacking in so many ways. I still stuck to it because of how much I loved the first one, but man was I disappointed and upset that this one wasn't as good as the first. Like what everyone says, this book suffered from middle book syndrome.The story continues on from where the first book left off. The first book left everyone with their jaws opened, and I just expected a better explanation for it. This wasn't what I was looking for. I got boring. I got lame. I didn't get exciting or shocking or any of those awesome feels. Rory wasn't that great of a character either. She felt so flat to me, along with all the other characters too. Also, why didn't the author recap what happened in the first book like most authors? I completely forgot Shadowlands, so I clearly won't remember who is who. It really took me some time to figure out who Rory was even in love with. Speaking of love, the romance was bleh. SO BORING. There were no feels, and I felt like it was all fake and stupid. Honestly, the book felt like it just had no heart. The story went in the direction I really didn't want it to go. So upsetting.I really don't have much to say. Will I give the third book a chance? Yes. It will be the last in the trilogy, so I really hope Kate Brian will end it as well as she started it. I need more action, more in-depth, and I need to be able to interact with the characters. I really hope I find all that in the last book.

    I had no idea where Kate Brian was going to take this series aft

    I had no idea where Kate Brian was going to take this series after the first book. To be frank, I was worried about it because I wasn’t sure there was any where to really go since I found the first book fantastic. That being said I wasn’t going to let my doubts stop me from reading Hereafter and thank goodness. Brian made a believer out of me with her ability to tell a straightforward story and to keep the audience guessing. Because Hereafter was a guessing game for me and I loved every minute of it.

    Hereafter picks up almost exactly where Shadowlands has left off. Rory, having just found out the truth about Juniper Landing and the fate of her family, is reeling and trying to put the pieces together. But the more Rory learns about the picturesque island, the more questions she has and the more afraid she is of what’s to become of her family. And when weird things start happening and fingers start pointing Rory has to decide what is really important to her and more importantly, who she can trust.

    Like I said, I was worried. After how Shadowlands ended I had no idea where you could go with this story. The mystery was gone, or at least I thought. Brian actually surprised me with where she managed to go with this story and the twists and turns it took. Every time I thought I had it figured out, and I basically thought this about every 3 pages, I would start to question my resolve and doubt everything I thought I knew. By the time I finished this incredibly woven story I don’t think I knew which end was up. The characters were interesting and mysterious and you never really knew whether they were on the up and up or if they were hiding something and I loved that feeling. I rarely get that when I read a book so Hereafter was a nice refreshing change of pace.

    I also really liked the ending. I’m not convinced everything is as it seems and if I know Kate Brian at all, it will get worse before it gets better, but I really like how thing splayed out and were revealed. I’m still going back and forth in my head trying to figure out if what I read is the truth or if there is something else that hasn’t been revealed yet.

    Having been a fan of Brian’s He’s So/She’s So series written under her other name Kieran Scott, I know that I am in for a doozy when it comes to the final chapter of this amazingly thought out and expressed story. In Juniper Landing nothing is as it seems and I know Brian will leave us breathless once again. Bravo!

    Honesty

    Hereafter was a good book. My only problem was that majority of this book was made to be a buffer for the third book which often left you confusing and questioning. Although im sure all will be answered in book three i felt she could have have elobrated a bit more in Hereafter to keep it more exciting and less predictable. It also felt that the characters let strong suspecions go too quickly when they should have been investigated. Still overall a really good book but NOT worth the $17 i paid for it....

    YES! Hereafter was a whopping improvement from the first book in the series, Shadowlands. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Shadowlands, but I expected it to blow me away and it unfortunately didn't. Hereafter, however, was much better!

    I didn't expect Hereafter to creep me out as much as Shadowlands did. After the mystery within Shadowlands was revealed, I thought all of the spookiness would disappear, and I. Was. Wrong. The creep factor absolutely remained in Hereafter, which I was so excited by since I rarely read anything of this nature. It's such a fun change of pace for me!

    Kate Brian has a special quality to her writing that just sucks you in and doesn't let you go. Just like with Shadowlands, I had a difficult time putting Hereafter down. I can't be sure if it's just because the writing flows so well or if the storyline is just that gripping. Actually, it's probably a combination of both.

    Even though I really enjoyed Hereafter, it was a little predictable at times. I wish there were a few more plot twists that shocked me, but that's okay. I have a feeling the next installment will have me guessing and then BAM! Totally (and hopefully) shock me.

    Overall, Hereafter was a pretty satisfying read that left me craving more. Even though there are some predictable parts within, I would recommend it for anyone wanting a quick and spooky read, especially since Halloween is right around the corner!

    This book helped to make Shadowlands actually make sense. In case you missed my review of Shadowlands you can check it out here. When I first finished the book, I was a little bit outraged because I was confused by the ending and I felt like the book had no purpose, and it was really upsetting. I was also pissed off because I thought that this book was a stand alone. What shocked me was finding out that the book was actually part of a trilogy.

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked getting pulled back into the world of Juniper Landing. I liked coming back into Rory's life as she struggled with this new knowledge that she was dead, which I so don't blame her her, knowing that you died is a big deal. It was sad realizing that the nightmare she had on her way to Juniper Landing was actually how she died.

    There were new people that we met in this book which was really interesting and we also got to learn more about how the entire community worked. Best of all we get to see her and Tristan together more, including him coming to her rescue again which was completely magical and swoon worthy. While I get to know more about these other characters we see less and less of her family. One thing that did irk me? Books one and two span two weeks total. Two weeks! And we have Tristan and Rory falling all over themselves "In Love" with each other.

    All in all, I cannot wait to get my hands on the final installment of this series to see what is going to happen and where everything will end up.
