I liked the first book in this series and was really looking forward to reading the second and was very disappointed.
I got about 1/3 of the way through the book and could not go any further as I could figure out exactly what was going to happen in the rest of the book. The drug the story revolved around was a little far fetched for me and the characters did not grab me.

After reading "Hush," I was curious how the Lodestone Series would develop. And SPOILER ALERT, this 2nd installment follows the original formula (pardon the pun) to a 't'. Some of Cherry Adair's lines were lol funny (she must have been watching SATC when she wrote the scenes including a scrunchie and a family pack of condoms [talk about irony]). The actions scenes were intense and the love scenes were marginally believable. The villian and the "drug demos" were disturbing, so if you are squeamish or would rather NOT read about this kind of stuff, then skip "Afterglow." True this story is farfetched, but SURPRISE, it's fiction.

A solid 3.5 stars.

Adair writes great action scenes so that's what the stars are for. Otherwise I found little to like about this book. A drug that causes people to have indiscriminate sex is a little far-fetched and I'm a reader who's fine with vampire, werewolves, and fairies. The hero is mean to the heroine for much of the book, and even if you push through to the end there's no reasonable explanation for most of what happens. "He'd gone to extraordinary lengths to get Dakota to Greece by the most convoluted methods possible" (page 357). "Maybe we're better off not knowing all the answers" (page 382). I won't be looking for any more books by this author.
