Lament For The Afterlife


Lament for the Afterlife - Lisa L. Hannett

Told from multiple points of view, this story features a war against an enemy that’s never really explained.


Or if it is, I must have missed it. While the writing at times was really beautiful and intriguing my problem with it was mostly that I felt like I was missing a lot. Exactly what was going on for example. The many, many different characters that are brought into the story don’t make it any easier.


Don’t get me wrong, I like it when stories don’t spell everything out for you and there’s something left to the imagination, but I do like to have some kind of knowledge about what the story is about. The fact that the enemy, the Greys, are never named or explained didn’t help either.


It had great potential, but for me it fell a bit short on the execution.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
