Dystopian is often one of my favorite genres, but it is hard to find a unique plot, sometimes. After Darkness is the unique plot I was hoping for. An interesting take on segregation and racism within the novel between humans and cuborgs made this really compelling. It obviously hits home with the way the world can be in real life and I think that’s what made this so enthralling.

The romance aspect of this novel is really well done. I like how there was no “insta love” happening. The characters are super diverse. It was really nice to see a unique spin on popular tropes in this genre.

I think this novel is really well written and I am looking forward to the next book. I definitely recommend giving this one a shot. I dont think you will be disappointed! Action packed, well written, and unique.



*I received a free copy of this book from R&R Book Tours in exchange for an honest review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*


‘My name is Terra Underwood, by the way.’
‘Didn’t ask.’
‘I know, thought you should know anyway.’
She heard him sigh.
‘I’m Kalem.’ A few seconds passed and then, ‘Kalem Akuma.’
‘Akuma? Seriously?’
‘It means demon.’
She couldn’t help but think it was rather fitting.
‘Well, Underwood means ‘wood that is under.’ What exactly it’s under we’ll never know.’
‘Is that meant to be a joke?’
‘Everything I say is meant as a joke.’
She could almost hear him smile, and that brought her own lips to twist upwards. She closed her eyes, feeling suddenly at ease and comfortable.
‘Good night, wood that is under.’
Terra’s smile deepened.
‘Good nigh, demon.’
