    One thought on “After Dark”

    1. Welcome to a whole new world that the earthlings traveled to for some reason Then, oh noes, they got stuck there because the door of convenience because if it s a mystery we don t have to explain how it defies all science to exist closes Now, all of the settlers, who decided to leave this nuisance planet we live on with all of our comfortable housing, plentiful food supplies, and the answer to all life s questions the internet, to go and live on some alien planet where they could scrape and stru [...]

    2. After Dark is a good start to Harmony series In this book, Jayne Ann Krentz, writing as Jayne Castle, did a wonderful job creating such an interesting faraway future planet of Harmony.The story flowed fairly well and smooth Only in the first few chapters that I found the story was a bit slow paced, the rest of it was great Once I read through the first half of the book, I was totally gripped by suspense and a feeling of excitement as the pieces of puzzle began to fall into place bit by bit towar [...]

    3. After Dark, the 1st book in Jayne Castle s Harmony Series.The futurist world of Harmony, a planet inhabited by humans when an energy field opened a gate between Earth When the spaced shut down, the colonists were left in Harmony to fend for themselves Synopsis Welcome to Harmony where the rules are a little different Life is tough these days for Lydia Smith, licensed para archaeologist Seriously stressed out from a nasty incident in an alien tomb, she is obliged to work part time in Shrimpton s [...]

    4. I really love this book Of course, I love pretty much everything Jayne Ann Krentz writes, no matter which name she writes it under But this book holds a special place in my heart Why Let me count the reasons 1 It s the first of her Jayne Castle futuristic romance books that I ever owned and read 2 It was my introduction to dust bunnies and I will love Fuzz forever and ever Oh, and I also really love Lydia and Emmett, both together and separately I d steal Emmett from Lydia if I could 3 It s auto [...]

    5. JC JAK weaves this fantastical futuristic world that is highly imaginative and well thought out And one can safely say that she and her work inspired a lot of later authors But then at times it gets too heavy and I tended to skim over pages I am writing this after reading both the books And let me tell you, I dint like the story that much The h H are fine as a couple and have some fine moments but the plot is distracting and vague This is the third Harmony book I ve read and the suspense mystery [...]

    6. 3.5 StarsFound the World building a little, toocomplicated in this one.Took some time to ease into the whole thingOverall a fun one time read.

    7. I may be giving this book less credit than it deserves because it didn t fulfill my usual expectations from this author There was something just a bit off about it Plus, as the first book in a scienc fiction series, I have to say that I m not sure I would have understood the world very well had I not read some of the later books first The biggest complaint I have is that the story isn t quite over and I m not sure why This author has never as far as I ve read spent two books coming to the point [...]

    8. A great start to theHarmony series byJayne Castle Jayne Ann Krentz,After Dark has everything that I love there is an incredible new world, Harmony murder and mystery unraveling through to the end a dangerous hero and a stubborn heroine that together form an awesome couple and even a cute pet called Fuzz It s romance, suspense, thriller, paranormal, futuristic and sci fi all in one It could be a disaster, but it s indeed very captivating and wholly believable What could anyone want There is , as [...]

    9. First Reads Review After Dark by Jayne CastlePart of me bristles a little at the marketing of this book, because at first blush it s really not meant for me From the colors of the cover to the description on the back, this is a book that is marketed as a romance novel than a science fiction novel Which is one of the reasons that I dislike the way books are traditionally marketed toward only specific demographics Because I liked this book a good deal not because I m a huge romance fan but becaus [...]

    10. I have enjoyed this author s books written as Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick and decided I needed to try out her Jayne Castle books This one didn t work for me It was alright but nothing special and I struggled through it The characters were likable enough and the storyline had the potential but nothing really caught my attention.

    11. I ADORE all of Jayne Castle s books The heroes are alpha cowboys on on a pioneer planet Do not miss these.

    12. I would have given this book 5 , but I hate being thrown into a new series with a lot of terms that I don t understand and have to try to keep straight I still don t know why they came through the Curtain, and who the Harmonics were Maybe it will be explained in future stories, but it makes it hard for me want to continue the series.Lydia is a para something archaeologist I love archaeology, so I thought this would be a good book for me And while I don t like all the technical terms thrown aroun [...]

    13. What a mixed bag these books are I came across free secondhand audiobook versions of them, so I figured why not Although I had a vague association of the author with mediocre romance PNR, I didn t worry too much about it Free, after all I enjoyed some things I didn t mind the characters except when I did in some ways the story was pretty well told I have to say the setting is fairly thorough and deep and well drawn in places It s an interesting idea, once exposition is provided But it doesn t al [...]

    14. This is the first in the author s Ghost Hunters series set on the planet Harmony To begin with, I thought it would tie in with an earlier trilogy with books named after the heroines, who all have flower names, but although the background of the two series is the same, the Harmony books differ in several respects Both deal with societies which have grown up on planets remote from Earth, which were colonised after an energy cloud appeared near Earth that enabled travel to far distant worlds, but w [...]

    15. Lydia Smith, a licensed Para archeologist, has had her whole world tumble upside down in the last six months, now she finds one of her few friends left dead To make matters worse her new client Emmett London, wants to fire her to keep her out of danger I was slightly confused with this book, it is of a futuristic tale rather than what I thought initially Interesting concept for a story, but I had a hard time visualizing the setting Not sure if I was familiar with Jayne Castle s previous work i [...]

    16. Meh this one was pretty useless and unconvincing for a start of a series Not enough world building either The whole time I felt like I was missing something Overall, fell completely flat as a fantasy, mystery AND romance

    17. This is a really hard book to classify It s sci fi, but with some mystery and romance thrown in In the end, I think it s about equally romance and sci fi with the mystery getting the shortest shrift.I liked the premise, though it felt a little sparsely populated The story takes place on a world a handful of centuries after initial colonization is shut off by a closing of the curtain So the colonists know that they originate from Earth and that the artifacts found on the world are not from anythi [...]

    18. Melinda Helfer Romantic Times Ms Castle adds many wonderful touches to her engaging new series, including Lydia s unique pet, Fuzz, and enthusiastic fans will clamor for further adventures Publisher s Weekly Castle aka Jayne Ann Krentz is well known for her playful love stories, and this futuristic tale of romantic suspense runs delightfully true to form In an ancient city on the planet Harmony a place where professional ghost hunters and para resonators are necessary to defuse the dangerous ves [...]

    19. SFR Reading Challenge 2012 3 15SOA Listening Challenge 2012 Paranormal SFR 3 4Grade B C Narration by Joyce Bean 3.5 Grade BA Krentz Castle Quick is generally an enjoyable read for me After Dark is no exception, although it isn t nearly her best sci fi futuristic romance There was decent world building and the suspense plot was entertaining, but the character development was weak Every time I thought I could like Lydia, she acted like a self righteous prig again Her pettiness toward Emmett got ol [...]

    20. 3.5 stars I enjoyed this very much but there are some loose ends that made me knock off half a star I loved Jayne Castle s St Helens series and this series is shaping up to be just as interesting Worth checking out if you re a fan of scifi romance.

    21. My rating is of a 2.5 stars.This is an NA book Unfortunately, the tone of the book felt YA I cannot be fair in assessing this book as a style of writing is not my preferred method I found it slow paced and did not connect with the characters Interesting concept for the theme of the book.

    22. Author Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne CastleFirst published 2000Length 352 pagesSetting Around 200 years in the future on the planet Harmony, cut off from Earth In Cadence City.Sex Very explicit, infrequentHero Hunter and former Guild Head.Heroine para archeologistWhat really happened when Lydia was burned I wish Krentz had told us It was relevant to her motivations and attitudes but was never explained May be followed through in Book 2 Otherwise, a thoroughly enjoyable romantic suspense with [...]

    23. What a great start real one of the Harmony series Wonderful introduction into the world, the history, and paranormal elements And despite the fact it s set in a foreign planet, in the distant future, and the inhabitants all have paranormal abilities, it still reads like a pretty straightforward romance almost contemporary, if you ignore certain para sci fi terms It has murder, it has romance, it has danger, it has an explosive attraction, it has mystery and intrigue, it has sex, it has a pet, it [...]

    24. 2.5 starsThis wasn t bad, but it wasn t great The writing was fine, and this was entertaining, but the characters, setting, and plot weren t very well developed I suppose that this might get better in future volumes, as many series do Although I was amused by this book sometimes probably not at at the things that the author meant me to be amused by, like her obvious channeling of her experiences as a PhD student in making the main character s former PI primary investigator the horrible ex boyfri [...]

    25. Re read in February 2012.I didn t like this book quite as much the second time The setting of Harmony, which interested me so much the first time around, feels a bit silly and gimmicky now I started to get irritated by the frequency with which the word resonate or, often, its abreviated form, rez, popped up Castle Krentz has an unfortunate tendency to introduce a moderately interesting concept, then harp on it continuously until her reader is sick of it.Lydia is one of Krentz s feisty, self rig [...]

    26. This is the first book of the Harmony Series I gave it a solid 3 I like the concept of the book Though, I call it Sci fi Mystery The plot was quite good but I found that the writing style was a bit hard to follow The book had a slow start and didn t grab me right away So I have a very hard time with the first few chapters However, it did pick up a little faster in the middle I found that all of the raz this and that was kinda annoying But once I get use to them, I will probably be less annoyed I [...]

    27. When I initially read the blurb about what the book was about I thought it was something I would enjoy Unfortunately, the blurb did not match what the book was about at all When I started reading I felt as though I were missing something and was feeling lost, I never quite recovered from that feeling through the book I even checked at one point to see if I was reading the first or a second installment to see if that might explain my confusion The writing is well done and the story is pretty dece [...]

    28. This is a good book in an entertaining world I got a bit confused with the various tangler ghost hunter official names something like para res and emphemeral something or other But other than these technical names and what they did I m still a bit unsure about Lydia s technical abilities undoing some sort of pyschic trap I enjoyed the overall story and the friction between the main characters as unreasonable as I found them at times Re read 25 June 2012 Audiobook narrated Joyce Bean 4 stars Enjo [...]
