Tara Hudson has added a fresh new voice to YA Paranormal. I found myself completely engorged in this great novel. I was emerged from the very first page. I found Tara Hudson’s writing technique to be absolutely wonderful. I was always routing for the happiness of Joshua and Amelia. I was completely enamored with the love between Joshua and Amelia. I was so drawn in that at some times it felt like I was actually watching the senses unfold before my eyes. The characters grew so much from the beginning till the end of this fantastic novel. I would defiantly recommend that this much loved story be read by all.
Can there truly be love after death?
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.
