Overview

Sequel to Hereafter. The only thing worse than death is regret.

When recently-deceased Irene Dunphy decided to "follow the light," she thought she'd end up in Heaven or Hell and her journey would be over.

Boy, was she wrong.

She finds that "the other side" isn't a final destination but a purgatory where billions of spirits are stuck with no way to move forward or back. Deranged phantoms known as "Hungry Ghosts" stalk the dead, intent on destroying them. The only way out is for Irene to forget her life on Earth-including the boy who risked everything to help her cross over.

As Irene desperately searches for an alternative, help unexpectedly comes in the unlikeliest of forms: a twelfth-century Spanish knight and a nineteenth-century American cowboy. One offers a chance for redemption; the other, love. She won't be able to have either if she can't find a way to escape the hellish limbo they're all trapped in.

    Thought-provoking afterlife adventure-- Once again, Terri Bruce

    Thought-provoking afterlife adventure--
    Once again, Terri Bruce delivers a fast-paced read that offers more than the typical quest. THEREAFTER is a thought-provoking journey through the afterlife as it might be experienced by someone who wasn’t good or evil while living, but who simply put her desires before those of others.
    Irene Dunphy meets many challenges in the afterlife as she seeks a way to cross the river to whatever waits beyond. Along the way, she gets in touch with new facets of herself and her traveling companions. A “guide cat” with attitude, an origami horse, and cantankerous brownies (the elven kind) provide comic relief for Irene and her human sidekicks, Ian and Andras. Fourteen-year-old Jonah from HEREAFTER returns as an important, but off-stage, character.
    I still don’t find Irene likable for the most part, but her growth is realistic and I care about her; you feel her pain as she learns life lessons the hard way (which is especially sad since she’s no longer alive). Young adult readers will find the mix of mythology, history, and religion easily accessible as integral parts of Irene's adventure. Looking forward to the next book to see what happens on the other side of the river!
