We all wear masks, and Afton Morrison is no exception.

Review:

Afton Morrison has a carefully crafted identity, a vegetarian librarian who reads to children with a pet goldfish called Twinkie but underneath all she can think about is murder, these impulses come in the form of an evil twin Animus, who sometimes Afton thinks is real.

While stalking her first victim, Kenneth Pritchard, a serial rapist who has been let go due to lack of evidence she feels a presence, a man in the shadows. Suddenly Afton is no longer the badass vigilante but the prey in a dangerous game.

This book is the first in the series and after reading it I genuinely can’t wait for the next one! It’s fairly short but so much is action and suspense is packed into it, with just the right amount of creepy to put you on the edge of your seat.

You may think, how can someone like Afton so hell-bent on murder be likeable but she really is. After the trauma of losing both her parents and an incident that happened just before she went to college, I really felt for her and understood that need for revenge on behalf of other people. I believe the best description of her from the book is ‘she’s a psychopath with a conscience’.

I like the fact it was written in the first person, Afton’s sardonic voice really comes through making her feel that much more real. Yes, she may not have the nicest things to say about other women but I feel that it’s mostly a mask to hide her insecurities. I also appreciate her description of Donald Trump as ‘Donald J Clownshoes’ that had me in stitches.

I will warn you that there is a cliffhanger ending but you don’t have to worry as the rest of the series is being released in quick succession, the next being in August.

I would recommend this book to fans of Dexter and if you’re looking for a good anti-hero for a main character.

Rating: 5/5

      1. You heard it here first, LJ!

        I provided Shannon with ARC copies of book two and let her know I was cool with her passing them on to any of the participants of this tour, in the event they wanted to read (and review) See You Soon, Afton for its August 7 release. I hope you enjoy it! —Brent

  2. Hi LJ,

    I put together something fun this morning, and I thought you and your followers might like to check out.

    It’s an online poll, in which you can vote for who you would choose to play Afton Morrison in a film adaptation of Go Home, Afton.

    You can check it out here, if you’d like to. Voting is free, it only takes a second, there’s no sign-up required, and I narrowed the poll down to four choices just to keep things simple.

    I hope you’re having an awesome day,

    —Brent
