Title and Cover: See You Soon, AftonAfton Morrison, Book 2 (The Afton Morrison Series) by Brent Jones

Holy smokes! Book 2 literally sets the plot on fire with the dark and desperate attempt by Afton to find and save little Kim. The despot in Afton takes a back seat as she must act on that soft spot for the sweet and innocent volunteer library assistant who looks on her as a mentor. After all, she has yet to prove her psychopathic vigilante assassin status! If Afton ravaged your senses in Book 1 with her first-person account of her twisted, deep vigilante desires and her comprehensive search for the perfect victim to stem the Animus within her, Book 2 slams what you thought you knew about where this was going against a very hot, blackened wall.

Go Home, Afton Book 1 of the Afton Morrison series saw the introduction to Afton Morrison, a wannabe psychopathic vigilante assassin. In my review of Book 1, Afton is described as an educated small-town children’s librarian. Unfortunately, Afton has been unsuccessful in quashing the Animus inside her–that being who continues to pulse in and out, pushes and prods–as it had become her personal goal to end the life of a twisted sexual predator. She’d picked the perfect target. Neither her brother Chris nor his girlfriend Tia are aware of her fantasy turned reality when in Book 1 she proceeds with her attempt to off the SOB. Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan.

Book 1 also introduced supporting characters, Jared, a local news reporter, Pete, a co-worker at the library, and Kim, her young volunteer assistant (now in trouble in book 2).  There is little additional development of any character in book 2, at this point, developed characters driving the plot. There are shocking revelations, dark familial secrets discovered along the way that changes even what Afton thought to be true.

See You Soon, Afton-The Afton Morrison Series by Brent Jones

The Man in Shadow continues to run interference with her plans and ergo the rub. Afton’s character attempts to remain calm, cool, and detached after an attempt to save Kim goes terribly awry, but now she appears to be the mastermind behind Kenneth’s murder and in one of those sick and twisted ironies of fate, it is not a crime she committed. It’s too late, however, to go back and what is done can’t be undone.

I was sent this ebook novella download by the author and greatly appreciated the opportunity to read and review. You might wish to begin with book 1 to get the complete fleshing of Afton. This series is recommended for any who enjoy a salty thriller mix of language, graphic situations, crime, pulse-pounding action, mystery, and suspense.

  1. Well, now that my post is up I figured I’d pop by and read the rest of your review! Ha ha! I didn’t want it to sway my opinion on anything, but it looks like we were of like kind on things! Brent really amped it up in this one!! I was kind of happy that Animus didn’t seem to make as many appearances in this one. Not that I don’t like the character, it was just nice to have Afton stand on her own two feet a little more in this one and make her own decision without Animus hanging over her shoulder chanting “kill them, kill them!” all the time! I felt like any steps Afton took in this one were really her own!

    1. Hi Nicole,

      I think Gin’s review was fairly spoiler-free. That said, with each book ending on a cliffhanger, it’s hard to review the following book without spoiling the ending of the book before it.

      For example, notice the synopsis of book two. “Afton searches for an abducted teenage girl…” I had to be careful how I worded the blurbs!

      See You Soon, Afton is the shortest of the four books, so I imagine you will be through it fairly quickly. Spoiler alert! Book four is actually long enough to be considered a novel at just over 50,000 words. A short novel, but a novel nonetheless. Neat right?

      Enjoy and best wishes,

      1. I am so confused. I guess that is what happens when I try to read and catch up on all the blogs I have not had a chance to get to over the last 4 days.


  2. Thanks for the glowing review, Gin! I’m so glad you enjoyed book two in the series. There will be plenty more twists and turns to come. —Brent

            1. Actually, I list my name on two pages, the Submission page and the About Us page. But I’ve been greatly enjoying your reviews and comments and will welcome whichever name you choose to use. I am tickled to meet you as well (so thrilled with the connection)!

  3. Hello, great review. How many pages is this book? Brent Jones is making waves on the blogosphere. He is everywhere.

    Brent, when you read this (he stalks all blogs featuring his books 😉😉) great job writing and marketing your book well. I in awe of you.. Fabulous

      1. To quote Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” My best marketing tip? Ask. It never hurts to ask. Worst case scenario, someone will say no or give me a crappy review, neither of which will keep me up at night. Then again, prior to writing fiction, I spent a decade or so working in sales, in one capacity or another. Rejection doesn’t scare me. —Brent

    1. That’s the best kind of stalker, isn’t it, Shalini?

      The way I see it, if a blogger has put time and energy into reviewing one of my titles, the least I can do is pop by to say thanks and engage in the comment section. I want readers (and reviewers) everywhere to know that I’m approachable and happy to discuss my work as an indie author.

      I appreciate the praise. If you have Oprah’s phone number, please let her know that I’d love to chat!

      Rather than give you a breakdown by number of pages, let me give you an approximate word count for each of the four books instead. It’s a more reliable metric, as different eReaders give different page counts.

      (#1) Go Home, Afton:
      38,000 words (including Acknowledgments)

      (#2) See You Soon, Afton:
      33,000 words

      (#3) Nice Try, Afton:
      38,000 words

      (#4) Time’s Up, Afton:
      51,000 words (including Afterword)

      You can divide each of the stated word counts by 250 to get an approximate page count, in terms of printed pages.

      All four books are reasonably short reads, but book two happens to be the shortest, while book four is the longest.

      Best wishes,

        1. You need to read these, Shalini! I feel like you would really enjoy them! Librarian who wants to kill bad people? (who also can be men who hurt women?) IT’S THE REVENGE WE’VE ALWAYS PLANNED, IN WRITING!! Oops…. Did I say that out loud? On the interweb? I meant planned for the plot of our new book that we’re co-writing…. That’s right… 😉😂

          1. Hahaha… I have to ask Brent for these books then… Your inner serial killer came out during this… With my lousy heartbreak, I am already hating men, I am sure my dreams would become more vivid reading these 😉😉😂😂

          2. I am planning revenge, tiny slivers of needle under the skin, so tiny that microscope cannot see and so painful that he is f**ked up and after my heart gets the peace, I would take him to the MRI machine and the magnet would suck the needles out if the skin…how do you like that…
            Ya ya it is all for the story we are co-writing.. So not

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
