"In the After" by Demitria Lunetta is Thrilling! (UPDATED)

 In The After by Demitria Lunetta is about how Amy, a teen girl and a toddler she finds survives when people all over the world are pretty much wiped out by very fast green creatures who are attracted to noise and light, and feed on people.  Amy thinks of her normal life with her parents, her friends and school as "before" and the life she lives now in silence and alone, only going out at night to scavenge for food, as the "after."

I enjoyed this book very much, it is a page turner I did not want to put down and when I did, I looked forward to getting back to it! I was completely engrossed in this one, not knowing what was going to happen next!  I highly recommend it to anyone who likes wild science fiction end-of-the-world type books.  I can't wait for the sequel!  This is a new author, give it a try.

In The After by Demitria Lunetta is a teen science fiction novel about a young girl home alone when the world changes.  She finds a young baby and becomes its caregiver.  Later on they find more people who have survived and are safe, or are they?  What kind of city are they in now?

This book drew me in right from page 1 with lots of action and a really good ending!  LOVED IT!  I'm looking forward to the sequel!

Have you read this one? What did you think of it? If you reviewed this too, feel free to share your link to your review in the comments. Happy Reading!


  1. I haven't heard of this one, but it sounds like my kind of read. Heading over to my library's website to request it right now! Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. I'm reading it now and like it a lot--hate to put it down! It goes fast!

    1. yes faster than a cat on crack! LOL!

  3. I agree that it's a fast read. All those pages definitely flew by. I just didn't think the story itself was all that original or well-developed. You're right, though, I read TONS of dystopian, so I'm always looking for something new and different. Glad you enjoyed the book!


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
