Afterlight by Rebecca Lim

After the death of Sophie's parents, she's struggling to get back to normality. Which isn't helped when Eve, an intriguing ghost dressed in black appears by her bed and gives her images of things she wants her to find. Sophie is taken on an adventure filled with bikers, romance, danger and most of all questions without answers, rounding off with an explosive ending that will have you thinking about the book long after you turn the last page. 

Up until 3/4 of the way through this book, I was willing to give it three stars. It was intriguing and sort-of interesting, I was kind of interested in what would happen but I wasn't dying to know. The story just kind of ticked along nicely without anything too impressive happening. Until the final quarter. My heart rate picked up, my fingers itched to turn the page and I had a strong urge to know what was going to happen. Somewhere along the way, I had become interested in Sophie, Eve and their stories and I never saw it coming. And that ending - wow! Read this book, it was fun and the ending was thrilling, but don't expect anything amazing.
