With fierce survivor instincts, Amy manages to stay alive—and even rescues "Baby," a toddler who was left behind. After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope.

But there are dark and twisted secrets lurking beneath that could have Amy and Baby paying with not only their freedom . . . but also their lives.

Review:

“SURVIVING IN THE AFTER” PLAYLIST By Demitria Lunetta

In the After doesn’t have a lot of music in it, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a soundtrack. Songs have so much power, they can be so vital to experiencing raw emotion. This playlist is full of songs that echo a character’s emotion/mental state. To represent the apocalypse I chose a lot of the gritty nineties songs I love, but acoustic versions that seem more honest. I also picked a few covers that made me rethink a much-loved original, making it new and fresh and fitting.

1. “Sweet Dreams” by Marilyn Manson: “Sweet Dreams” makes you feel out of place, in a horrifying dream world that you don’t really understand. It’s perfect for Amy’s first experience of the After, when normality is shattered and all she’s left with is the horror that remains.

2. “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons: “Radioactive” makes me think of a harsh post-apocalyptic world, but also of dealing with and surviving in that world. Its grainy beat pummels your senses, but also comes off as somehow hopeful.

3. “Black Dove (January)” by Tori Amos: For me, this song represents Amy and Baby in the After together. They only have each other.

4. “Down in a Hole (unplugged)” by Alice in Chains: “Down in a Hole” is so full of pain and anguish. It shows desperation and despair, which visits Amy just before the end of part one of In the After.

5. “Here Comes the Sun” by Yuna: I chose a version of this song that was eerily haunting. There is hope, but also fear. This song is for Amy, when she literally steps back out into the sun and feels real hope for the first time in years. This song also represents the appearance of Rice.

6. “Rebel Girl” by Bikini Kill: This song makes me think of all the kick-butt girl characters, Amy, Kay, even Vivian and Amber. It’s about being who you are, not what everyone else wants you to be.

7. “Machine Gun” by Portishead: This song represents Amy’s feelings of confusion and agitation when she first arrives in New Hope. Amy is so used to living in the After, with just Baby for company, that the change to New Hope is jarring. Even though she should feel safe, all she feels is wary.

8. “Mad World” by Gary Jules: For me, this song perfectly represents the Ward. The lyrics are dark while the music feels uplifting. It presents itself as one thing, but when you dig deeper, it’s something different.

9. “Hurt” by Johnny Cash: This song is so full of despair and depression, it’s for the bad time Amy has in the Ward.

10. “Save Yourself” by Stabbing Westward: Leading from despair, this song also has just the right amount of anger. I think it represents when Amy finds her fire again.

11. “Woke from Dreaming” by The Delgados: This is Amy’s full realization of her situation, when the flashbacks catch up to the present. Amy remembers everything that she’s discovered in New Hope and has to deal with the emotional pain that entails.

12. “Uprising” by Muse: Amy rediscovers her resolve. She’s found the answers she sought and now knows that she must fight for what she knows to be right.

13. “Happiness is a Warm Gun” by The Breeders: The haunting sound of The Breeders lends a spine-chilling aspect to this classic Beatles song. It represents determination but also struggle.

14. “Runaway” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs: This song makes me think of Amy leaving everyone she loves, including Baby, Rice, and Kay.

15. “Sounds of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel: As with the first song, this song represents the After. I love that this song is more than just a song about silence—it’s about social change and standing against the established powers.

From the Back Cover:

Attack. Not isolated.
Fate of Americans: unknown.

Amy is watching TV when it happens—when the life she once knew is taken over by Them. Though their origin is unknown, these vile creatures are out to kill. But Amy, marooned in her high-security house, is able to survive. She even rescues "Baby," an abandoned toddler, during a dangerous trip into town for supplies.

Now, after years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a survivors' colony on a former government research compound. New Hope seems safe . . . until the dark underbelly of this colony comes to light. And the more Amy uncovers, the bigger the target on her back grows. Forced to choose between protection from the creatures of the outside world and the dangers of New Hope, Amy must make a decision fast, for it could cost her—and Baby—their lives.
