There comes a time in every readers life when they stop and think, "Did I read the same book as everyone else?". This was my moment. I'm not proud of it - but here it goes.

After the Fear had the potential to be great, according to many readers anyway, and I overlooked the Hunger Games similarities at first. Honestly, I did. But then I just couldn't get past them and I found myself measuring how much of the book I had left to go. I'm not saying this book is The Book Of All Writing Flaws and Boredom. It isn't, there are some cool ideas. But for the most part, I felt like I'd seen it all before and had some pretty depressing de-ja vu moments of Katniss flipping Everdeen. By the way, I actually liked the Hunger Games and I wanted to read something similar. But not this similar.

So Katniss, oh I meant Sola, lives in a city where rules must be followed, an over-arching totalitarian government of evil makes the rules, and kids of ridiculously young ages (and some grown-ups) are randomly selected to take part in "The Demonstration" (Did someone say "Reaping"?). So here's what's interesting. The Demonstration is actually a way of punishing criminals. Effectively kids selected kill off the criminals as a way of paying back their Debt. The Debt of the Nation. To be honest, the whole idea was just a little heavy and over-cooked. We've seen it. Incidentally, even the criminals idea isn't original - it's been done with the Z2134 series (just with zombies thrown into the mix).

Something else I disliked, or rather someone, was Sola herself initially. Sola does not begin as a strong character. I'm not sure why readers love her from the off. She's not a moaning myrtle, which is great, but she is boring.

This book was on my mind so much as I read it; I actually had a dream about it.

Let's start with the characters:
Sola is likable, caring and smart. She makes some mistakes along the way, but that just shows the reader that no one is perfect.
Dylan is also likable. He's strong and we don't always know what is going on in his head, but we know he always has a plan. His character is also very consistent and he's unlike any other hero I've read. I love it.
Coral is the antagonist. Obviously, we hate her from the get go and she proves to be evil over and over again.
As for the rest of the characters, they all seemed very real.

The story and pace:
The story is unique. Even though it is similar to The Hunger Games in some ways, it's also very different. A world of politics and secrets is behind the scenes and we occasionally get a glimpse at it through Coral's father and Shepherd Fines.
The twists that happen both in Sola's life and in the demonstrations are creative and well-thought out by the author. There is so much going on, but the way that Rosanne Rivers writes makes it easy to understand.
Pacing was perfect. The story moved along at just the right speed.

The writing:
I thought the writing was great. One thing that threw me off at first was the use of single quotes instead of double, but I quickly got used to that and didn't even notice it by the end of the book. The romance scenes were great, the action scenes were great and everything in between was great!

The ending:
I did foresee part of the ending, but I feel that it was the only ending for this book. There were a few pieces of the puzzle that kept me guessing and made the ending very enjoyable

Overall, I would give this book 5 stars. I'd recommend it for anyone who likes dystopian, romance, action, science fiction or books like The Hunger Games.

I have just finished this book and although it is not my all time favourite book, I actually think this book has as good as, or possibly a better plot than my favourite.
My favourite book is Throne of Glass by SJ Maas and has everything I would want in a novel. However, this book is a fun, teenage-style story, with good writing and a commendable finale. The end I think, was the best part. (SEMI SPOILER) The end of this book is not a sickly sweet, 'everyone joins a rebellion and triumphs' type thing, but nor is it the bittersweet / sad / disappointment that some books (like Divergent) are.
The characters have flaws and the 'goodies' don't all converge on one opinion. The 'badies' have logical reasoning and are not just one-dimensionally evil. There are no contrived responses and all the relationships are well thought out and not the classic 'love-at-first-sight-let's-run-away-and-get-married' stuff.
Overall, I think this book is worth a read and I would recommend it.

Having read a fair old few books in this genre, I can safely say 'After the fear' stands up to series such as the divergent, delirium, declaration and even the hunger games books.

I liked the political scene Miss Rivers creates that has a poignant basis in the world we currently live in, something often lacking in similar stories where the temptation to dive completely into a fantasy future is covered by the, "it was so long ago nobody can remember" explanation.

The characters are an honest portrayal of both how good and awful people can be. And how everyone has moments where they try to see good in people when its not necessarily there.

My only criticism would be that i have no idea if there is more to come! I hope so as there are so many ways in which the story could develop and so many possibilities for the futures of Sola, Dylan and Alixis.

Whether in this series or not i will definitely be investing in Miss Rivers next creation.
