Hereafter starts where Touch left off; Rowan is now reluctantly a part of the Reaper Council. Visiting and seeing her Father in a downward spiral due to the loss of his Daughter and Wife within months of each other, unable to see Jet, seeing her best friend move on without her and the constant calls to Reaper Rulings has Rowan questioning if her seemingly lifetime position at the Reaper Council has a way out, an alt

This was a good end to the story, even if it maybe was a little too sunny at the end!

I liked the characters in this book, even though it seemed a little rich to expect someone else to take over their jobs for them so that they could have their lives back!
The storyline was good, and it was written well. I did think that the ending was maybe a little too rosy, but overall the book was good, and I’m glad I finally finished the series.
7.5 out of 10.

In my 16 years of existence, this is legit the first time that I cried while reading a book. Who would have thought that I would cry while reading a ya paranormal.. PARANORMAL! Not a contemporary, but a paranormal book. I’m glad to say that I enjoyed Hereafter more than the first book. I love it when the 2nd book is better and has more twist to it. In my review of Touch which is the first book, I said I had a feeling that the sequel would be better.

This novella is one of the most terrifying journey's into the unknown that you will ever take. This is the story of Rowan, her tragic death before her time, and her travels into the afterlife to get answers. This is an out of body experience that will definitely be a nightmarish dream of what lays beyond our time on earth. I, for one, have always wondered what lies on the other side of death, a realm that is unknown to the living, that no one dares to think about. As I read this novella, I found ...more

Argh! This book was so good, but I couldn't help but cry through most of it! Having read Touch I was familiar with Jet and Rowan. When I started to read this story, first I was like okay, this reaper thing sucks for Rowan. Then, I felt so sad for her and I couldn't help but connect with her character.

Her and Jet's characters were so well written, you felt everything they felt. There were sorrow and hard choices in this book and I loved how Jennifer didn't make the story light and fluffy. It wa

I have a new favorite couple.

This time we have so much explained from the first book that we or Rowen didn't know. And also get a few answers from Choice that we might not have even bothered to ask. Although maybe you did, I don't know what your views on justice are.

These books are so different from what is out there, more people need to know about these hidden gems.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Really enjoyed this. It was another very quick read and at times it seemed like no questions were being answered, but at the end, the story came full circle and ended with me saying a loud "AAAW!".

The love story could've been handled differently. It felt forced at times and underdeveloped, but it was still sweet and it proved that love conquers all! Even death.

This book answered the question of why Rowan's mother took her own life. It was a sad revelation, and Rowan finally understood and forgave her mother. Overall, their journey to purgatory was fascinating to read, and that's the only main content that I found interesting in the book.

There were two chapters dedicated to Jet in this book. But I still couldn't connect with him. Anyway, I was glad that the story finally over; I didn't enjoy the book. One positive thing was that the conclusion was gre

Loved it!

Omg even though it was a short read it was just enough! It did not leave me feeling like the book should have not ended like others I’ve read.

This was my favorite of the three Reaper novellas!  It was equally dark and gothically eerie, but even more emotionally charged than the first two novellas.  In part, this could be due to the fact that it is a bit longer than either of the others.  This one also has much more of a "journey to the other side" feel to it.

After reading Touch, I felt like I really knew Rowan as a character.  I fet for her, I loved her, I thought I knew her.  But in Hereafter, her character grew so much, so much more
In Hereafter, Rowan doesn't want to be a Reaper Council Member. She wasn't meant to be one, but she had no choice. Now she wants to live again, she wants to change things, fix things with her dad and her friend but first she must go to Purgatory to find her mom, to take her rightful place.

It started off a little hard. Rowan now a Reaper, can see her dad go through the tough time of losing his wife and daughter just months apart. He is destroying himself, all alone, having to pack everything up.

I love this book.

The characters are great, the situations and things they have to go through are brilliantly written, and the reaper world is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. It helps that I was intrigued by how the reapers worked and what they were fighting for. I love how Rowan and Jet have to overcome obstacles to be together, and how they have to make sacrifices. It was all very well done. Especially what happened in Purgatory.

There's not much else to be said:)

Hereafter is the follow-up to Touch. It does a nice job of filling in some of the questions left by the first story. It has a nicely-wrapped ending that is different from what the reader expects after finishing Touch. The physics of the Reaper world is interesting. If you liked Touch, Hereafter won't disappoint. ...more

I'm amazed at what a great story this is in just such a few short pages. I felt that this installment of the Reaper Novellas had a lot more detail and gave a wonder look into Rowan and her world. As far as I'm concerned it ended perfectly. Well worth the read! ...more

Nice ending to the series but I need to be honest and say, if I didn't get this novel for free, I wouldn't have bought them or read them, there just isn't enough wondrous content to make me feel it's worth it. ...more

For a short story this was really exciting watching Rowan go through the process of changing from Reaper to Reaper Council member and the love story between her and Jet is amazing. The hunt for her mom is a wild ride right along with Jet's story coming to light. ...more
