Publisher's Summary

Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price.When the Children's League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam's brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government "rehabilitation camps" all over the country. Freeing them - revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process - is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.

Thank God it's over!

Not as good as the previous two books in the series. Ruby, the main character, was bordering on annoying with her self-sacrificing. She whined so much that I had a hard time finishing this book. If it wasn't the last in the series, I would have just put it down. The narrator did a great job as in the first two books.

Very descriptive writing, BUT....

What disappointed you about In the Afterlight?

The writing is VERY descriptive about a bunch of things that don't matter at all!
And I kept waiting throughout the series waiting for something but the girl is stupid and slow in the first book, and doesn't change all the way through the series. "She's upset. She can't handle it. She won't use her abilities to solve issues." That's the series. Boring and frustrating.

Would you ever listen to anything by Alexandra Bracken again?

This series was not what I hoped for, but I would give her books one more chance if I find one that sounds good. The writing is very descriptive, but nothing in this book matters.

What didn’t you like about Amy McFadden’s performance?

She doesn't have a wide voice range for doing multiple voices. She has a great voice for any "multi-voice" recording though.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was a great idea for a story, and it is very descriptive in the way it is written. Some of the descriptive moments are on things that help paint the scene, but nothing happens very consistently in the series.

Any additional comments?

It's just a shame that more didn't happen in these books. They had such promise.
