*NOTE: I am extremely grateful to Reads And Reels for sending me this book. However, this does not at all hinder my honest opinions regarding the book. This is a spoiler-free review. All opinions are solely mine.
Woah! What a ride! When I finished reading the first book in the series (‘Go Home, Afton’), I was left completely numb. And oh dear, it was even more thrill that I experienced while reading ‘See You Soon, Afton’.
‘See You Soon, Afton’ is the second book in the ‘Afton Morrison’ series. The book is written in first person and we follow the actions, experiences, and emotions of Afton Morrison. Afton is one strong-headed girl who seeks to eradicate a bit of the evil from the world by killing Kenneth. If you’ve read the first book, you’d know if she was able to kill him or not. Afton is driven by the sudden impulses to kill and to see blood flow out of the evil. Is she able to satisfy her need to kill this time? Read the book to know!
While in the first book it was Afton who followed Kenneth all the time, this time it is her who is being followed and spied on.
There is somebody out there who is following Afton and keeping track of all her actions. Afton is an astute person but, this time things are way too difficult for her to digest. Even after destroying all her devices and making sure to search each and every nook and corner of her house, she is unable to find out what enables the mysterious ‘Man In The Shadows’ to spy on her in such a dangerous manner.
Who is spying on her? Why? How? You need to read the book to know all that!
In this book, Afton comes face to face with reality she did not know existed. She is forced to know about her secret familial relationships. She is left quite unhinged and tries her best to make sense of what is going on. There’s A LOT that happens in this book!
We do see Animus in this book but, not as much as we did in book 1. If you’ve read my review of ‘Go Home, Afton’, you already know that I absolutely love the psychological concept behind the creation of Animus.
The characters that I like from this book are all the good characters including Chris, Tia, Kim, Jared, and Afton. I absolutely love how every character has a distinct feature to her/him. The book is both plot and character-driven in an astounding manner.
This book is even more spine-chilling than book 1! I definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves mystery-driven, thrilling and hair-raising novels! It’s definitely one for psychology-enthusiasts like me!
This is another series that is absolutely perfect for the spooky season. I guess I’ve got my hands on some of the best scary and thrilling books this October!
