“YA, the characters have grown quite a bit since book one. A fast read that, at times, I wish gave more depth to the characters, although I did enjoy it!”Dianne wrote this review Sunday, May 20, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Incredible sequel from a very promising Author! The book picks up a year after the last book and quickly dives in with plenty of adventure and romance. It is not long before they return to Energo for more adventures. Probably my favorite part is the further development of Kevin and Samantha. Also learning more about Calvin was very exciting. The story provides plenty of action, romance, and comedy. I can't wait to read the next and consider this book even better than the last! ”EclecticHobbyist wrote this review Sunday, April 1, 2012.

“Perilous Light is the second book in Alyssa Rose Ivy’s Afterglow trilogy. With lots of characters and civilizations, plus separate worlds, it might seem a little confusing to anyone who’s not read part one. But it follows the previous book nicely. The narrators, Charlotte and Kevin, have grown a little older. Meanwhile love interest Calvin gets to add his voice, useful since the battle lines are going to be drawn three ways. Sports star Kevin might learn a new appreciation for his sister’s shyness when he's asked to undertake some public speaking, in an alien land. And quiet Charlotte will soon have to choose between physical attraction and the lure of magical love.
The world beyond the gate grows in this book to include more civilizations and creatures. Meanwhile the real world remains convincingly modern with underage parties and the lure of alcohol. While the characters continue to abstain and maintain their PG13 rating, it seems surprisingly easy for them to take risks and go partying.
Soon they’re heading into the unknown again, with danger, temptation and confusion, a mother to be rescued and a throne to be won. The mix of modern and medieval dialog isn’t always convincing and leadership skills might seem oddly assigned, but there’s magic in the air, nicely woven in some really good scenes, and there’s mystery still, with intriguing hints of how the story will be completed in part three.
