From the preface In the scene before this she's waiting at a bar for this guy to show up Vampires They're real They exist And they're so not what you think they areAnd I was utterly irrevocably in love with oneSo I immediately thought Hey that's like a pretty blatant Twilight reference Wasn't good ol' Bella irrevocably in love with Edward Oh I get it wink wink Heh at the end of the book when we come back to this scene she's gonna pop up and yell Gotcha Twitard I hate this stank vampire and I'm getting ready to stake his assSince I was totally in on the joke I sat down and prepared for the punch line while I mentally patted myself on the back for being so cleverAs it turned out I was the punch lineFirst let me say that I am not one of those people who think that every book out there is ripping off Twilight Especially books with vampires in them I mean there were plenty of love triangles stalker ish boyfriends and Mary Sue heroines before Twilight came onto the scene and I'm sure there are still plenty to comeHaving said that I couldn't believe some of the stuff in this book Besides the fact that Riley is irrevocably in love with Eli she also has special blood that for some reason drives vampires crazy if they get a whiff of her Oooookay And really if that was it I wouldn't think it was too weird But you then immediately find out that Eli is from a family of good vampires who has a pacttreaty with werewolves voodoo guys called Gullah Uh huh The Cullen Dupre family is different because they don't kill humans to feed AhThe straw that broke my back however was when Eli admitted that he had been creeping into Riley's room at night to watch her sleep Excuse me Miss I'd like a large cup of Plagiarism and a bagel Mmmmmm Delicious Ok By the middle of the book I was already annoyed so some of the things that started pissing me off may seem petty And yet I'm going to mention them anyway1All of the Goth shitI'm not anti goth I'm not anti anything really How you choose to dress or wear your hair doesn't have any bearing on what I think about youWell unless you're wearing a 'Fuck Anne Hannah' t shirt then I'd probably decide I didn't like you based on your clothing In the book though everything revolved around goth fashions Like somehow the fact that she was wearing earrings that look like spider webs or a fishnet shirt made her super duper edgy And naturally because we readers are stupid we needed to be reminded every few pages not to be judgmental towards people who dress differently Don't stare at them They're just people like youWell not exactly like me because I don't put much effort into my wardrobe On a side not why shouldn't you stare at someone Who Goes Out Of Their Way To Look Different I mean it's obviously what they want right Why else would you do it It looks like it takes a lot of time and effort to dye your hair a funky color or colors and seek out clothing that isn't found in your average mall Any kind of 'look' takes a lot of work to maintain so I usually assume that anyone who takes that kind of time with their appearance enjoys something that they get from the experience Let's be honest a lot of the people who are into goth fashions enjoy the looks that people give them because it makes them feel like they are truly different Which is fineBut listen up kids if you are really differentit'll shine through even if you're wearing an old Hanes t shirt and a pair of Levis2Panic RoomAs in We went into the club Panic Room It was smokey inside the Panic Room As I made my way through the Panic Room I saw people making out Some guy touched my ass in the Panic Room I couldn't wait to get out of the Panic Room We went back to the Panic Room the next night Being inside the Panic Room made me nervous Panic Room Panic Room Panic Room Ahhhhh For Christ's sake stop repeating the name of the clubLike I said this may sound petty but after about the 50th reference to the Panic Room I started to wonder if the author had invested in this place or something and was just looking for some free advertisement3Easy OrgasmsOk admittedly this is was not annoying I'm just jealous of this particular superpowerand I needed a #3I can't really say that Afterlight was a total wash though Mainly because of the above mention sex Rowr I can see why you recommended it to me Jilly Bean you dirty dirty girl And I am just shallow enough to give this thing 3 stars based entirely on the nasty bits Sue me

More of my reviews can be found at Flipping Through the Pages25 starsI have positives to say about this book than negatives and as a debut novel – amazingFirstly I love Riley Poe she is a refreshing portagonist and isn’t weak like protagonists such as Bella from Twilight or just plain arrogantannoying like Sookie Stackhouse Riley has turned her life around from being a junkie trouble making teen who someone who has gone to college and started their own successful tattoo shop Riley is a big sister who raises her little brother after their mother passed away and was under the care of an awesome old guy called Preacher and his wife who practice wicked African magic They helped Riley turn her life aroundWhile Riley has turned her life around she is still a kick ass female protagonist who thnks for herself rather than for the man who comes into her life EliThe book is generally about Riley’s brother Seth and his friends who accidently release two evil brother vampires by disturbing “Da hell stone” and due to this slowly begin a transformation that will make them the most savage type of vampireIn order to save her brother from becoming a creature of the afterlight Preacher introduces her to the Dupre family – A local family of vampires who by the way are a type of vampire that can go out in the sun and Riley meets and falls for Eligius Dupre a hot tempered protective vampire who falls for Riley the same With some hardcore training and dark underground club hopping to figure out where her brother and his friends are hanging out to lure bait for the vampire brothers Riley Poe the Dupre family and Preacher man has less than a month to save Seth and as many lives as possible and to try and kill the brothersThe premise for this book is Riley’s brother Seth and his buddies apparently release two brother vampires who were captured centuries ago While doing that these vampires make the teenagers into their minions and they slowly begin a transformation to becoming vampires which will be complete when they make their first kill in about a month’s timeThe only thing I can think of that I didn’t like about the book was that there was a fair bit of talking about nothing although its a nice change considering I just finished the Sookie Stackhouse series and the chapters are really long however it is still a book that is difficult to put down and will keep you wanting of Riley Poe

AfterlightY Determined to take revenge on the city who entombed them the Arcos' gather strength in the city's youth Within the moon's full cycle the gang's uickening will be complete they'll become vampires Newlings out of control and craving human blood will ravage the city The one thing the Arcos' didn't. uick Dirty Unfortunately this story is not well crafted The dialog is distracting and repetitive There is nothing uniue or novel to make the story stand outOpening Sentence Afterlight According to the Gullah it meant two things One darkness or dusk Two death the life after or beyond I’m familiar with bothThe ReviewRiley Poe isn’t exactly your model citizen She has a dark and derelict past Highly sexed drug addicted and out of control Riley finally manages to turn her life around Riley is a tattoo artist in Savannah raising her teenage brother Seth after the death of their mother Bored and looking for something to do Seth and his friends decide to raise some hell in a cemetery uite literally Naturally things take a turn for the worse as a result of the cemetery prank Riley becomes increasingly concerned about the crowd that Seth is hanging out with Seth is in trouble and Riley struggles with how to help him Eli a “dangerous” yet “good” vampire decides to make his presence known He’s Riley’s guardian sent to help her through this crisis Seth is experiencing the “uickening” the phase that precedes the vampire transformation Together they embark on a treacherous journey through the underground Savannah to save Seth from rogue vampires and each otherFirst I must note that this book falls under the urban fantasy genre not paranormal romance When I received an ARC of this book for some reason it was billed as paranormal romance From the very beginning Afterlight presented problems and unfortunately it doesn’t get any better If I had to identify two things that really killed the book for me it would be the convoluted plot and the poorly constructed characters It’s hard to connect with any of the characters and the plot would have benefited from tighter and trimmed down revision The opening chapters are too cluttered with minutiae and does nothing to really move the plot forward The pacing of the book is extremely slow and the dialog repetitive Afterlight has too many coincidences that eventually become rather hard to believeRiley Poe isn’t an engaging narrator The narrative is disjointed and isn’t particularly well written first person It was virtually impossible to develop a rapport with Riley’s character It’s not that Riley’s bad decisions make her an unlikable character; she’s just not a well crafted urban fantasy heroine Riley doesn’t have much of a backstory and what we do know is by way of endless exposition rather than through Riley’s actions Despite what we are told about Riley’s past she herself never feels authentic Riley has supposedly experienced a troubled past lived her life on the edge Yet nothing in her behavior or mannerisms suggests that she’s street smart hardened let alone hard core Just because Riley works at a tattoo parlor dresses a certain way and speaks “street” lingo from time to time; doesn’t make her “down for the cause” I never once believed for a second that she was tough capable or smart Without a doubt Riley is trashy than she is classyEli Dupre is a forgettable vampire There isn’t anything really groundbreaking or sexy in terms of the vampire lore and nothing really sets this novel apart or stands out in the sophisticated and crowded urban fantasy market I never felt that Eli and Riley had much of a connection Their relationship seemed based on convenience and circumstanceI couldn’t escape the feeling that Afterlight tried really hard to be something that it’s not – complex layered dark and gritty I got the impression that Ms Jasper was striving to capture the gritty elements of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J R Ward The street lingo and the characters constant desire to be badass hip cool and in their “element” felt contrived and painfully transparentAnother aspect of the novel that didn’t work well was the Gullah speech For example some characters speak Gullah a type of pagan English While it’s a nice attempt to achieve some level of authenticity it falls somewhat flat in light of Afterlight’s aforementioned weak characterizations and poor pacingOverall Afterlight has too many problems to recommend It isn’t particularly exciting or suspenseful Its lack of depth and poorly written characters are the final nail in the coffin for AfterlightNotable SceneI was somewhere completely different and unfamiliar and I immediately knew it was a place where I was definitely not welcome a total stranger As if I inhabited some weird apocalyptic world I lived in a derelict warehouse with rats flaking paint and broken windows and when I looked outside everything was gray bleak and lifeless – except for me Then I saw them – vampires – and at first they were on the street below maybe eight or ten of them; young raggedy punks In the next second they’d leapt onto my balcony and I stumbled back then started to run All through the warehouse I tried to escape but they were all around me leaping from the rafters overhead toying with me laughing; I knew then that I would never outrun them so I turned to fight I was surprised to find a small silver blade strapped to my thigh; it hadn’t been there before Against a wall I turned drew my weapon and aimed One flew toward me face contorted into monstrous bloodlust and hatred jaw hyperextended It was Seth My fingers froze on my weapon I couldn’t do it Then the others joined him as they descended upon me merciless and horrific and I screamed my brother’s name so hard the lining in my throat was scorchedThe Dark Ink Chronicles Series1 Afterlight2 Everdark June 7 20113 EventideFTC Advisory The author provided me with a copy of Afterlight No goody bags sponsorships “material connections” or bribes were exchanged for my review In addition I don’t receive affiliate fees for anything purchased via links from my site
