After breaking up with her boyfriend Morgan Mitchell decides to surprise her parents and go home for Thanksgiving break. The only problem is when Morgan arrives home her parents don’t seem to be there so she thinks they may have gone on a trip for the holiday since she wasn’t going to come home. Morgan ends up taking up an invitation to explore an old abandoned mansion that is going to be torn down the next week but Morgan finds more than she would ever have expected.
Afterlife is a novella associated with the Shadow series by Cege Smith. This is actually the first I’ve read of this series but after this I’d be really interested to see how the earlier books went. I believe this is a follow up to the series and the earlier books were about Morgan’s parents. I’m sure reading those would have shed a bit more light onto this one but it did read well even without the others.
This being a novella it is a rather short read but the author certainly packed a lot into this book. Without giving too many details what started as a trip into a thought to be haunted mansion turns into so much more. A lot of creativity with the details in this one that had me quite intrigued.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
