Beneath the Void is an amazing sequel to In the After, Elisa Dane has definitely written another brilliant book. I was excited to read this to find out what happened to Sadie and Hayden after the tragic events that happened at the end of In the After, and it didn’t disappoint. Beneath the Void is a superbly written book full of emotion, hard hitting topics and great characters.
Its difficult to talk about what happens in this book because I would spoil what happened in the previous book. I will try and give a plot summary of the book without spoiling anything. Beneath the Void starts a few months later on from where In the After ended and Sadie is struggling to come to terms with the events that happened. She is trying to continue her life but is finding it difficult with the memories of what happened haunting her every day. Her only ray of light within this darkness is her boyfriend Hayden, but even he might not be able to help her live her life as it was before.
Elisa Dane has written an amazing sequel and developed the characters even more than she did with the first book. Its great to delve into the mind of Sadie more and by the end of this book you do come away knowing a lot more than, which makes her very relatable. There is some Hard topics covered and Elisa Dane manages to write about them beautifully but also with detail. I have read some books that touch on some of the topics featured in this book, but they don’t really go into detail. Here Elisa explains and writes from the heart when talking about these topics and you can definitely see that when reading the book.
Beneath the Void will have you in many different emotions when reading, you will go from laughing to crying, you will go from not being able to put the book down, to wanting to put down to take in what you have just read. I loved this book even more than the first because I already knew all the characters and it was easy to just jump straight back into the world again. But I also loved this book because it wasn’t shy or scared to speak from the heart and tell the truth.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed In the After, because you really need to read this book if you did. But I would also recommend this book to any new readers who wants to read a book about topics that aren’t talked about enough in detail or not talked about at all. Beneath the Void has a range of brilliant developed characters who you can relate to in a second. Obviously check out the first book before reading this though.
My review for the first book in the series, In the After, can be found here.
I rate this book 5/5 stars.
