rhe If you get through Evenfall: When Sin fucks up, everyone including me thinks how he is not to blame because the poor guy is suffering so much. While the main couple takes center stage, like they should, they have a supporting cast of characters who are unbelievably 3D and distinct.

Like being in the know?

What I learned from Afterimage: The story, written from a perspective changing between main characters Boyd and Sin, has been widely reviewed. That is why the Agency has had him locked up in a box on the fourth floor for years. I really love Sin, but the thing about Boyd is that I can relate to the guy. Jul 15, Mel rated it really liked it Shelves: The Sin and Boy saga continues, and I can’t wait to see what happens next – I think the word ‘epic’ was created for stuff like this!

I apologize for my constant depressing whinings! I think this was the perfect way to describe him from Boyd This is a series and the books can not be read as stand alones!!

In fact, his life has been such an endless cycle of apathy and despair that he’d welcome it. Harsh and unbelievable, right? It’s way too intense!!! It speaks volumes to the authors that, with Boyd, Sonny and Ais take me back to that frustratingly wonderful time of early twenties relationship discovery, disaster and recovery.


This is torturous angst that rips you apart and skewers you and eats you alive and then spits you out and stomps on you and flicks you off its shoe into a vat of burning lava only to burn to a fiery death. After broken up, Boyd was with two other men. He has never really been treated as a human so how can he possibly know how to navigate his way through all these new feelings?

I hated Sin and Boyd at one point, and now I think I still do. Miscommunication, periods of distance, fleeting smiles and learning to trust someone when a person ca In the Company of Shadows is a series about two people who are thrown together as partners in a secret agency; their mission is to disband rebels who have propagated in a post-war future, but they have to deal with everything that comes with an unlikely partnership as well.

However, the plot did get stronger. Other than that this book was gooood. Sin loved Boyd enough to make difficult decisions easily, as if there were no contest; he went toward Boyd as if he hadn’t even considered any other choices.

The writing got better, still a bit wordy and lots of inner dialog but nowhere near as bad as Evenfall. Don’t get me wrong, I totally can see Boyd coming to this conclusion but I wish I saw a little more of his self-doubt and maybe a crack in his “let’s be friends” attitude.

Can you imagine a pulse and tone like this for a thousand pages?

Afterimage (In the Company of Shadows, #2) by Ais

He was there to make Boyd laugh when he felt like there was nothing more to laugh about. After reading and becoming completely addicted to Evenfall I couldn’t wait to start Afterimage until I read some of the reviews. For now, please feel free to check out ICoS. And I cant explain the ways my chest is tight and burning.

Never a book had disturbed me more than Afterimage! You added sunshine into this rather gloomy book. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.


Utterly frustrating, unapologetic and selfish as hell, cmpany a delight to read about. View all 52 comments. I have an iPad and a kindle and if I can’t do what I want with them then I generally don’t do it at all but xfterimage reading Evenfall 1 and 2 on my iPad I knew I had to get the series transferred so I cleaned away the cobwebs and wiped away the dust and actually used my computer for something other than playing the occasional Region 1 DVD.

In The Company of Shadows series by Santino Hassell and Ais

Never asked why he looked like he was getting better and never cared to ask what was going on. Fade In the company of shadows, 4 by Ais. I am more than emotionally invested here, I am obsessed!

Sonny and Ais Date s: Add to that the fact com;any he is very unwell and the people that should be helping are either completely unprofessional Ann or just have absolutely no idea how to communicate properly with him Carhart and we witness him go through terrible bouts of depression, fear and loneliness.

It’s testament to how much I love these books that I’ve actually put them on my kindle. Strong enough to love and be there for each aafterimage. View all 3 comments.

In the Company of Shadows (ICoS)

World building is a subject often discussed between the authors and fans, especially on their Tumblr. That despite of all the frustration, pain, anger and all that. I wish the shift could have been more gradually. These books suck you in.
