I love a good paranormal-romance and this book has it all! Fans of bestselling authors such as Christine Feehan and Sherry A. Mauro will enjoy this writer, too. All three of these storytellers are not be missed! I can't wait until her next book.

This book was the best. Iloved the first one Shades of Gray and I loved this one too. It had me in suspense the entire time. Which I totally loved. I just loved the everything about it. This was definitely one of Amanda Ashley's best books ever.

Unlike many writers, I've discovered that Mrs Ashley stays true to her form. When other writers work hard to impress everyone else, and write in styles they think others expect of them. She seems to write simply from her heart, and lets the worlds flow, and flow they do. Unlike the robotic styles of most writers these days, each of Mrs Ashley's books come out smooth, easy to read and most enjoyable! Each story is unique and each char is so easy to understand and connect with in some form. I really love her stories, and found that After Sundown was a nice change of pace. Rather then reading of just hunters, or vampires going out after each other. You got to meet a vampire hunter who now found himself in the shoes of his enemy.. and how he had to learn a new way of living (Errm unliving?) or face death.. It's an AWESOME story for anyone, esp those who love a good gothic romance or vampire story!

After teaming up with his enemy, Grigori Chiavari to kill a rogue vampire, hunter Edward Ramsey is now one of the undead complements of his former ally for saving his life. Ramseys for centuries have hunted vampires so Edward has deep psychological problems with the change and prefers death. Still, he saves the life of a mortal, Kelly Anderson who jumped into the river because she has nothing to live for. Meanwhile the oldest known living vampire Khira arrives in the Los Angeles area seeking her former lover Grigori for the first time in two centuries. When Grigori saw Khira sucking the blood of a child, he left her. Now Khira plans to dominate the region with only Grigori and Edward powerful enough, if they can team up again, to stop her. For stop her they must as Khira plans to eliminate the beloved two mortals that Grigori and Edward now respectively love above their own lives. The sequel to SHADES OF GRAY is an arousing vampire romance that readers who enjoy a bite in their novels will want to read. Though the story line seems somewhat repetitive with Edward¿s constant whining that he wants to die, he is a powerful character struggling between his heritage and his dark future until he realizes how much he love Kelly. Grigori and his wife Marisa retain their cherished relationship that is being challenged by the villainess Khira while the audience wonders will she or will she not. Amanda Ashley provides an enjoyable supernatural romance that those who enjoy the AFTER SUNDOWN nightlife will want to peruse. Harriet Klausner

This was book 2 in the series. I really had a hard time getting into this one. The characters seemed stilted, with little emotion or interest. The story seemed drawn out through the whole book. What could have been told in one chapter was dragged through the whole book. I just didn't enjoy this one at all. I usually love Amanda Ashley's writing but this one ws almost boring to me.

Quite entertaining story about a vampire, Edward Ramsey, who finds Kelly Anderson trying to kill herself and convinces her to try working for him for a month to see if he can change her mind about dying. He sweetens the deal with some money.As the story proceeds they find themselves attracted and the two of them have to deal with the truth and with the other vampires in the city, at least one of which is Edward's ex. I don't know why, it's a pretty cliched story, but it was quite readable and entertaining.

This book should be in the young reader area. I almost returned this book after reading the first few pages- nothing trilling, nothing romantic here. The book reminded me of a bad 1920's movie-- you have to use alot of your own imagination. It's about a vampire hunter that's now a vampire. He, of course, hates himself. But, has a change of heart after he falls in love with a mortal.

I enjoyed reading "After Sundown".

This was a great ending to the first book Shades of Gray. I really enjoyed it. It was the continuing story of Grigori and Edward. It was nice to read a continuing story of both characters. Grigori's maker comes to L.A. in search of him. She is not happy to find that he is in love and married to Marissa. She also is not happy about Edward. She seeks both their companionship consumed by jealousy. Edward finds and falls in love with a girl and brings her "over." Both their stories are touching, in the end, Gregori and Marissa get their happy ending with a "special" twist.

It was not what i expected it to be. the story was all over the place. i felt like i was reading marisa and grigori story instead of kelly and ramsey. there was more about them than the main characters. i was disappointed.

I do beleive that I have become a true fan of these stories. I wanted to be transported into the book itself. What a wonderful read. The passion and love was so exciting, I couldn't put it down. I am so looking forward to getting all of her books and adding them to my collection.

Some people may not know this, but Amanda Ashley and Madeline Baker are the same author. If you liked this book, look up some of Madeline Baker's books. They are just as awesome.

I bought the book as soon as it came out and read it in 2 days! It was awesome! Amanda Ashley has done it again with another page-turner. Her vampire books are so realistic, I feel that I'm right there. And, if I'm right here, that's why people read, to escape from their ordinary life and live someone elses for a while. I'm looking forward to her next novel.
