I recived this ARC copy by the author for an honest review. Thank you Willow Cross for this super awesome short read!!
This was a great short story companion. When I read Birthright I had always wanted to know more about Angie and Will. They just seemed like a good story meterial :) I love how Angie is always the spunky 17 year old girl, but at the same time I feel sorry for her. She will forever be the child she was. Always stuck with everyone telling her what to do and just being treated like a child for such a long time. Will has it bad for Angie. How dose a ghost fall in love? He is such a gentelman. I hope he can finally be happy one day. If you have read Birthright and Inheritance then you should read this one toooo!!! Get your copy today..

A very enjoyable read!! This short story had plenty of twists to keep me entertained! :) Not your average ghost story. Not your average vampire story. This is something my kids will even enjoy reading. ;*} I followed this up with Birthright & Inheritance which were just as amazing! Willow Cross is Awesome!

I recieved this book from the author in return of an honest review.
I would like to begin by saying this wasn't at all what I expected it to was much better. The plot itself was wonderful with a historical setting full of villiages, horse drawn carriages, forests and cabins. I loved the the whimsiness of the main character, Angelica. She was quick, fiery and full of spirit. It wasn't the normal vampire romance that you would expect. It had a youthfulness about it playing through the vampire, Angelica, and her friend, William, that just so happens to be a newly turned ghost. Angelica teaches William the ropes of the ghost world, but in the end it is William that Angelica depends upon. Although she has her faithful companion and protector, Michael (also a vampire), William becomes her closest friend. This story is a MUST READ and gives you just enough to get you hooked on 'The Dark Gifts' series. Job well done, Willow Cross.

This short takes place before the events in "Birthright", but can be read before or after and still be an enjoyable read. I fell in love with the characters in "Birthright" especially William and Angie and would have loved to know more about them and how they met . You can imagine I was a little more than excited to find out that "Afterlife" is their story. The story starts of with William fighting with himself over the situation he has gotten into this time. After evaluating the issue, he attempts to solve the problem, numerous times to say the least. Concentrating on the matter at hand, he fails to realize he is being watched until he is taken off guard by the laughter that fills the air. This is where the journey begins and laughs never end. There are also several other characters from "Birthright" , that I loved, that also have roles to play in this adventure, but I will let you read it and find out who and why. I highly recommend this great read to everyone that loved "Birthright" and those who haven't had a chance to yet. A must read!
