About the Author
Stephanie Hudson has dreamed of being a writer ever since her obsession with reading books at an early age. What first became a quest to overcome the boundaries set against her in the form of dyslexia has turned into a life's dream. She first started writing in the form of poetry and soon found a taste for horror and romance. Afterlife is her first book in the series of seven, with the story of Keira and Draven becoming ever more complicated in a world that sets them miles apart. When not writing, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her loving family and friends, chatting for hours with her biggest fan, her sister Cathy who is utterly obsessed with one gorgeous Dominic Draven. And of course spending as much time with her supportive partner and personal muse Blake who is there for me no matter what. My Love and devotion is to all of my wonderful fans that keep me going into the wee hours of the night but foremost to my wonderful daughter Ava...who yes, is named after a Demonic bird. Afterlife Saga is 11 books in total, ending with Happy Ever Afterlife.

I genuinely loved these books at first but as you go through each one you will notice the same story, same detail and description and the excitement/surprise very quickly disappears. In every and i mean EVERY single book the lead character Kiera gets kidnapped atleast once. This is a character who is meant to grow and become a stronger, more intelligent person but this fails to happen every single time. I have recently read the final book and I am beyond disappointed. I am writing my review for the first book for those looking to begin this series. If you like dominant males that take advantage of younger stupid women this is the book for you. The sex scenes are all the same, think 50 shades of grey but a little tamer, Draven is controlling, likes to mess with Kiera's head and lies to her at every opportunity - because yeah that's what every woman wants. Awful teen fiction tbh, even the ending is completely predictable, thankful it has finally finished so i can put this behind me.
One book is made completely about an alternative person/soul if you will and that was worth skipping. the 7th book again can be skipped, its totally pointless and boring. If your a mature adult who has common sense about the world then you probably wont enjoy this, i lost interest about book 3 but since they are all available on kindle unlimited i thought i would finish the story but in all honesty it wasn't worth the time. I prefer a heroine with depth and emotion and maybe some common sense especially considering the things she has supposedly lived through - but no, these books created a character with no more depth but obsession with a control freak who's only interested is to keep her in the sack.
Go ahead, enjoy but you will left seeking better written and more interested things once this is done, I can assure you it is not worth a re-read.
However stick with it, Afterlife became a highly compulsive read for me and I'm now well into book 2 of the saga. Kiera has grit, a back story which, again, wasn't what I expected and despite her rather annoying hero worship of a man based on his looks, has the balls to think for herself instead of just simpering like many romance heroines tend to do. I did see part of the twist coming, but only because I picked up on something in Kiera's nickname (again, it might be an English thing but it still took me a while!).
I've already recommended this to a friend who reads romance, but not the paranormal stuff, as I think she'd love it despite it being outside her usual genre - if you're on the fence, give it a go and I bet you get hooked too!
It is a classic "recent" formula, girl who thinks she's plain (but clearly not) awkward but charming and then a dashing, handsome mysterious and very rich obsession.
The thing I did like about this book is that you find out what the big bad secret is quickly and the journey they go on which is a bit of a roller-coaster gathers pace quite quickly. With some of these types of books you don't find out until the last chapter or even the next book.
I do agree with the other reviews that the author over describes every situation and there are pages and pages of dialogue that just isn't required and this does get worse in books 3 and 4 I'm afraid......I also agree Kiera is also very annoying at times, stubborn, selfish and just being an idiot but this does seem to be the main character traits of heroin's these days as per Bella in Twilight, Anastasia in Fifty shades of Grey and Clary in the Mortal Instruments.
Overall these are as per other novels of this genre leave your brain at the door but it is good fun and quite funny in places I am enjoying the read and the characters even if I do find myself shouting at Kiera and Draven for that matter for being idiots but know one said true love was easy!!
Was looking to pick up a new series to fill the gap between the Kresley Coles/JR Ward books and this is unfortunately too YA for me.
