This novella is a short story about a break-in in the library at Rowan Estate and Adne’s recurring nightmares involving Bosque Mar. I initially felt the main purpose of this story was to ignite interest and excitement in the author’s new Rift series, which I have been on the fence about reading. I was not at all pleased that there were no Guardians included in this short. Funny how one last page in a book can change everything. I never should have doubted Ms. Cremer!
If Bloodrose left you shattered and completely devastated, then I highly recommend Aftermath if for nothing else but its astonishing ending.
Just one other thing I feel that I need to mention: the price of this eBook is $2.99. Now, that might sound reasonable to some readers, but this novella is barely twenty pages long. Compared to the other novellas I’ve been featuring this month, that’s a bit on the high end. The novellas I’ve been spotlighting have either been free or $.99, with a few exceptions for longer novels. I believe $.99 would have been a much more appropriate price for this particular short story.
