I’m excited to be reviewing book two in the Afton Morrison Series by Brent Jones. You can read my review of Go Home, Afton here. I highly suggest this series!
Somebody is watching. Somebody is always watching.
A teenage girl in Wakefield has been abducted, and tracking her down not only tests Afton’s moral limits, but threatens her freedom and her life.
Suspected of murder by local police, and under the watch of a menacing figure in the shadows, Afton’s search and rescue effort unravels dark secrets from her own past. Familial secrets her mother took to the grave, more than a decade ago.
See You Soon, Afton is the second of four parts in a new serial thriller by author Brent Jones. Packed with grit and action, The Afton Morrison Series delves into a world of moral ambiguity, delivering audiences an unlikely heroine in the form of a disturbed vigilante murderess.
Alright, before you read this review, if you haven’t started this series, stop and go read it. Not because I’m about to spoil anything, but because you NEED to. I can’t even put into words how incredible this story is!
Afton’s morality comes into play much more in See You Soon, Afton, and it’s very compelling. The constant struggle of wanting to feed the urge to kill, but also concerned for the innocent. It’s an internal conflict that just makes Afton so much more intriguing. As a reader, part of me wants to love her and part of me wants to fear her. I think that makes a really amazing experience reading this, especially through her point of view.
We learn more about Afton’s past, and gain some clarity on some of the questions left off in the first book, as well as given a whole new set of questions to mull over while we (I) (im)patiently wait for the next book.
If “un-put-downable” was a word, that is exactly what I would use to describe See You Soon, Afton. Brent Jones is brilliant in his writing, and he is creating a series that I am sure will just keep getting better. I cannot wait to see what’s next. Now, if you didn’t listen to me in the beginning of this review, GO READ THESE BOOKS!
