After Life by Daniel Ionson (Review)

BOOK REVIEW After Life By Daniel Ionson

 In the story of After Life we meet Kaemen and his fellow warrior-elites, The Wolfhounds, getting ready for war as Seer Mecas’ return to the nation Gaescea with a premonition of darkness and doom has the whole nation worrying for their future. 

 But as they get ready they suddenly find themselves trapped in The Land of the Dead with no memory of how they got there in the first place. The Land of the Dead proves to be filled with dangers and trickery. Kaemen is the obvious leader on the quest to get back to the living but after facing (what he considers to be) failure on an earlier mission he does not feel worthy. This also weighs down on him when it comes to the questions of what will happen to them all when they get to the very end of their journey. 

Can they get back to their loved ones? Who can they trust? And where will their past actions take them in the end?


I got a copy of After Life sent to me from Daniel Ionson through a giveaway on Goodreads.

Thank you, Daniel 🙂

The After Life is an amazing story and Daniels’s writing took a hold of me and did not let go until the very last page.

I’ve been through my share of fantasy that was just too obvious or cliché, but After Life is a breath of fresh air in the fantasy genre. And the plot twist!! I never saw that coming!  And the way he made it work in a very unique way was refreshing!

I loved the story and loved the writing! Look forward to reading more of Daniel’s work!


After Life was very close to getting a five star rating. I would have loved to have gotten to know the characters a bit more. With so many characters and places I struggled a bit with all the names, but that could just be me. It got easier as the story progressed 🙂

If you like yourself some exciting dark fantasy then I definitely recommend that you give After Life a try!

A few of my favorite quotes from After Life: 

“Why does being dead have to feel like a hangover every day?”

“But what is myth but faintly remembered history?”

“Hell is the promise of heaven dangled before you, and then taken away.”
