Product Description


Rand Sebastian, who is now a trained vampire hunter with the Brotherhood of the Blade, faces dangerous challenges when a missing member of the Sisterhood of the Scythe returns to the castle after a long disappearance. There's just one problem: She's now a vampire, and she's asking for sanctuary.

She also reveals intel that leads Rand on a mission to Romania to see if his kidnapped daughter is there. Planning a one-man invasion, Rand is stunned at what he discovers—it will take all of his courage and training to go up against the most evil vampire who ever existed.

Acclaim for the Brotherhood of the Blade Trilogy:

"Burning is a fast moving, hard-hitting and often surprising story." —Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author of the Xanth

3.0 out of 5 stars Afterglow 14 August 2013
By Island River Scribe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book picked up the story begun in Burning only minutes after that first book in the series ends. The novella length story then follows three plot lines, Gabby, Vlad and Rand's relationship with Ambra. Also, the search for Rand's daughter, Kristen, continues as an undercurrent to the three major events.

This book felt like the typical middle book in a trilogy - basically plodding along, ending a few things begun earlier, advancing some others, starting some things anew. And yes, there is a cliffhanger ending. Often the dialog, as well as Rand's internal monologues, felt stilted and unnatural. Also, the actual novella occupied only 80% of the actual download, according to the Kindle location counter. The remaining 20% was used by previews of two other books currently in publication by the author.

In summary, the first book in the trilogy was far better than this one and I sincerely hope the next, Radiance, will return to that level.
3.0 out of 5 stars Again, 20% of this short installment is excerpts from other books. 20 February 2017

And if that isn't bad enough, this one ends right in the middle of an action scene with a Cliffhanger. This book, as well as the first one, lacks in both world building and character development. Which is a shame, because it does have some interesting characters (although I still haven't developed a connection with the main character).

The plot is rather simple so far. The action scenes aren't bad, but the romance is rather weak. I enjoy Paranormal books, but for some reason this series just isn't grabbing me. I am not invested in the story enough, so I'm not sure if I'll continue. For me, it was just "OK".

4.0 out of 5 stars Not What I expected 31 May 2013
By Wicked - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read the first book in this trilogy and I liked it okay. When I started reading the second book, it was all right. The Gabrielle story line was interesting and tragic. I wanted a different ending for her, but I could understand why the author took that route.

This book was mushier than I expected it to be. We watch Rand fall in love, hence the title "Afterglow." It was a little weird to me because he kept saying in the first book that his dead wife (who had JUST died) had been the love of his life and his soulmate. It seemed a little quick for him to fall in love, but this is just my viewpoint. There is also the fact that he is on a mission to save his kidnapped daughter. Seems like he would eat, sleep, and breathe that until he found her, not having the heart for anything else but training. But again, that's just me.

There was action in this book, but I was expecting more. They are vampire hunters, after all.

Some of the plot seemed a little too predictable and convenient. Like who he meets on the train and the little bit of help he gets fighting a ton of vampires.

Overall, it was an entertaining read, but I think it could have been more developed in some places and less developed in others. For me, there was too much romance for the type of book it's supposed to be.

I would give 3 and a half stars if I could, so four stars because while there were story lines that didn't seem plausible to me, there were also story lines that intrigued me and made me want to know what happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Of Everything 31 May 2013
By Douglas C. Meeks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well since I enjoyed book 1 of this series Burning (Brotherhood of the Blade Trilogy #1) I grabbed this second book the day it came out and finally got around to reading it today.

It has a bit of everything you usually want from a book, the hero (humble and heroic all at once) , the heroine (strong and soft all at once), the tragedy to motivate the characters and emotionally grab the reader and let us not forget the "big evil thing". The you throw in some romance and poof, you got the great book that Afterglow was for me.

Rand has finally got a hint of where to find one of 3 vampires he needs to kill, the story to get to that point is great, the lady on the train was a nice touch (you got to read it to understand). The romance was a good way to soften the book a bit BUT I hate endings like this. It is and is not a cliffhanger since the main thrust of this book was accomplished but to leave us like that was evil :)

I guess I will just have to wait like everyone else and grab book #3 soon as it comes out. 5 Stars even though I want to hit something about now LOL

This book has a lot of potential and I hope that it gets more plot building and character building added to the story because it could use a lot of fleshing out. It wasn't bad but it could use a lot of improvement.
