Book: After You

Author: Sunshine Rodgers

Genre: Christian fiction, thriller, suspense (PG-13 Dark Fiction)

Release Date: April 27, 2018

Oh, that’s right, we talk about your love life. We sit with you in class. We know all about that thing you did last night. How do we know? We watch you. We go to those dance clubs with you. We scheme hideous outcomes for you. We know exactly what it is that will get you to our side. We create those wrong friendships you wished you never had. We invite you into those relationships that break your heart. We give you the life you never wanted, but it came at such a sweet price. We promised you the world and you took it like a kid wanting candy. All. Too. Easy. All I can say is, please, don’t let me get in the way of the worst ending of your life. I’m right behind you. I’ll open that door to frustration, nonsense and destruction. ***A Modern day twist on the classic Novel, “The Screwtape Letters” By C.S. Lewis***

My Perspective

I have a confession to make. When I first saw this cover, I was kind of scared to read it. In my years of reviewing books, I have learned to never judge a book by it’s cover, ever. I can honestly say that there are several books I might not have read if I saw them in the store because the cover didn’t sell me the book. But when you are required to review them, it’s kind of mandatory that you read them. Many times I have found these books to be absolutely amazing and well written. After You was everything I was expecting, and more.

Some people may be sitting there wondering why they should read this book if they are a Christian. Won’t it taint your main? Won’t it bring you to the dark side? I’m here to assure you this will NOT happen. In fact, it opened up my eyes quite a bit. Evil is everywhere, and there is a spiritual war going on that no one likes to think about, or talk about. But. It. Is. Real. Somehow Rodgers has managed to show us how easily our thoughts and minds can be taken over by evil. It can and does happen!

Rodgers brings such an interesting perspective here, and one that quite frankly scares me – in a good way. Sometimes you have to know how the other side is thinking and acting so you know how to better prepare yourself in a war. Although this book is fictional, I think it depicts it very well, and gives readers a glimpse into what may be going on with their friends, their loved ones, and just the world around us.

This is a book that will stick with me for a long time. It certainly makes me think about all that is going on in the world, and how easily people can be overtaken by evilness. Rodgers has gone outside the box with this, and I think it’s a book that can open your eyes.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Sunshine

Hello Everyone! Thank you so much for being a part of the Celebrate Lit’s Blog Tour of my book “After You: A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby.” This book is a modern day twist on the classic novel “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis. My book is a PG-13 novel told from a demon’s point of view on the many temptations and distractions the Enemy of our soul uses to deviate us from God’s plan. The demon in the story is after a girl in high school, so if you can imagine all the playground of resources the demons can play with around an insecure teenager just trying to survive peer pressure, boys and school! I invite you in to explore another realm outside of this one, as this story takes place in Hades and on Earth! Now, I write Faith-based books and all of them are surrounded by biblical truth and accuracy (as much as I can for Christian fiction!). My other works include: “God the Father, Jesus the Big Brother, Holy Spirit the Best Friend,” “This is My Heaven” and “Last Night, When I Prayed.” In all of my books – even this dark one – I write about God’s pursuit of us, His personal and deep love and His sovereignty that He remains in control no matter what is happening around us! I pray “After You, A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby” will open your eyes to the spiritual activity taking place around you. I hope you will begin to observe that following God and doing things His way causes the devil to get scared! And anything you do that impacts the Kingdom of God will attract demonic activity. But at the end of the day, God has the final word and we are saved and delivered under His amazing grace! I would love to hear from you! Connect with me on social media! And I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on my book! Much love! – Sunshine

  1. Thank you for your review on “After You” by Sunshine Rodgers and for being part of the book tour.
