Afterlife: The fire inside Lianne threatened to consume her, but she fought back and won. Unfortunately the collateral damage of her decisions won't stop haunting her. She embarks on a secret trip to find Mags and return her son, but her search leads her into another nest of lies. Everyone's safety is in Lianne's hands as the Malborn, an enemy more fearsome than her own people, looms over them.
Will Lianne be able to unravel the secrets in time to save the ones she loves the most? Or will her lack of faith in her own decisions lead to disaster? The Sundering: After defeating the Malborn and losing the person she loved most, Lianne escapes to Chase's homeland. With her appearance forever marked by death, Lianne feels like a monster both on the outside and the inside.
There were no twists and turns like I loved in the first book. Characters: Lianne, Kellan and Bryden all return. Chase has the ability to see vision in the future and draw them. He has known Lianne throughout her whole life through his visions and loves her, though she loves Bryden. Chase will probably be my favorite character from now on. However, he also lies to her, just like everyone else.
Romance: You have another triangle in this book. In the last book it was Bryden-Lianne-Kellan. But we discovered the Kellan is a bad guy. The romance really fizzled out for me though. Overall, the book was good, but I was very disappointed. I loved the first one. The characters, the development, the romance, everything.
This one felt so rushed. There were a lot of grammatical errors the few in the first one could easily be overlooked and I felt like there could have been so much more to this story. I will be awaiting the final installment in this trilogy, and I hope it lives up to the first book. Review by MrsJones at theresamjones. Apr 26, Meg - A Bookish Affair rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , young-adult , , paranormal. Afterlife picked right up where Sleepers, the first book in the Swarm trilogy left off. That being said, if you haven't read Sleepers, you are probably going to be really confused.
There is a small sort of summary of what happened in Sleepers but you're still going to miss a lot. I sort of wished that there had been a little bit more of a review. It's been a couple months since I read Sleepers so I had forgotten some of the details. It took a little bit for me to remember everything that had hap Afterlife picked right up where Sleepers, the first book in the Swarm trilogy left off.

It took a little bit for me to remember everything that had happened in the first book. Also, both Sleepers and Afterlife are fairly short books not sure about the third one so if I could re-do it, I might have read both books right together. This second episode is filled with action. It definitely feels like Afterlife could have been together with the first book. One thing that I liked about Sleepers over this book is that there was a lot more story development. In Sleepers, I felt that you got to know the characters a little more.
In Afterlife, I didn't feel like you got to know a lot about the characters, even the main character Lianne. I wish that we got a little more insight into Lianne and Bryden and the new characters in the book: Johna and Chase. There was another love triangle in this book but I didn't like it nearly as the love triangle between Lianne, Bryden, and Kellan in Sleepers. I just didn't get why Lianne was attracted to Chase Anyhow, I think that I would have liked if Sleepers and Afterlife were combined.
I still like the story but Afterlife was a much flatter story for me. Oct 03, Lizzy Lessard rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. She sets out to find her friend, Mags, and ease her conscious.
Maybe he has, but things sure do get confusing when Chase who is much sexier and sweeter shows up. Creepy but I still like Chase.

And Lianne thought it was creepy too. The pacing was much better in this second book and I read it in a single read through. Lianne is kept in the dark for much of the novel, which is frustrating to the reader, but the reasoning makes sense by the end. She definitely brings a much needed sense of comic relief at a very dark time.
Kudos to her for making the danger painfully real to both the reader and Lianne. Jan 17, Krista CubicleBlindness Reviews rated it really liked it.

As Lianne has just lost what she thought was the love of her life in the last book. But also discovered a new love in a long lost friend. I was surprised to see that it as well didn't get to live as long as I was hoping it would. That is not to say that I don't like any of her love interests. These books are pretty short and reading them one after another I have found that the process of going from one boy to the next felt rather fast to me.
Plus I liked the friend character and wanted to see hi As Lianne has just lost what she thought was the love of her life in the last book.
Plus I liked the friend character and wanted to see him around more. When Lianne is on her quest to find Mags, pretty quickly she is herself kidnapped and taken to a safe hiding place. It seems that there are a lot of powerful and dangerous people looking for her. When we finally get to discover who they are, it's pretty shocking and leads to a very interesting twist.
I fell in love with the Cloud Prophet Trilogy and besides the fact that this Swarm trilogy seems to fly by way to fast. I am a huge fan of Megg Jensen's work and recommend it to anybody. It's got magic, secrets, strong female heroine's. I have loved all of the books I read so far and they are great fun, quick and fast paced. Sep 16, Erleen Alvarez rated it really liked it.

- Afterlife (The Swarm Trilogy, #2) by Megg Jensen?
Afterlife picks up where the Sleeper left off, The Dalagans now ruled the land of Fithia and Bryden and Lianne were considered as the heroes. But when Bryden and Lianne finally uncovered the true nature of their race they decided to runaway and find Mags, the former queen of Fithia and bestfriend of Lianne.
Lianne did not only found Mags but she also found another race with magic and a mysterious guy who seemed to know all the things about her. The second book is definitely better than the first. Lianne finally admitted to herself that her judgement can't be trusted and it somehow helped me move on with my issues with her character.
It made me focus more on the story and I really enjoyed it. There are more revelations, more lies, new enemies, new allies and a death of a love one. And there is a special makeover at the very end which will shock everyone.
This is my favorite book in this series so far.
