    Okay. I did not review the 4 books in this series before this one, so I am going to give my thoughts on the series so far, and then, if I have time I might try to go back and review the other 4 books. But, I'm not going to hold my breath on that. This series actually was a surprise for me. I can't remember exactly why, but book 1"Transfusion" somehow ended up in my Audible library and one day when I was looking for a book to start I thought, "why not" Needless to say, book 1 led to book 2 which l Okay.

I can't remember exactly why, but book 1"Transfusion" somehow ended up in my Audible library and one day when I was looking for a book to start I thought, "why not" Needless to say, book 1 led to book 2 which led....you get the gist, right? Okay, onto the books. I REALLY liked Transfusion. It was a unique premise with - of course- a mysterious alpha vampire king that pulled me in right away. I liked books one and two quite a bit, but have to admit that books 3 and 4 were a bit of - not a disappointment - but were not as good as the first ones. We get to see Luc's POV, but there is a lot of repeating of events - so even though we were able to get his viewpoint -there was a lot of repetition. When I say repeating, that is truly what happens. So...we basically have to read those events twice. Also, not a lot of progress is actually made in the story arc in either book until near the end, so it kind of felt like the story was just slugging along. But, book 5 was interesting. The way things ended, it made me frustrated that I had actually caught up to the author and I am going to have to wait for book 6 like everyone else...bummer. I hate it when that happens! I'm not going to lie, one of my biggest pet peeves was the female MC's immaturity. She has a habit of not listening and reacting in very childish ways. She also jumps to conclusions...ALOT.. and that is also frustrating. Most of the conflict that they have- Luc and Amelia - is because they just DO NOT communicate well. That is beyond frustrating. But, other things in the series make up for it. I wasn't sure at one point if I would be continuing the series, but now am glad that I did and will be waiting for the next book to come out. At least it is already April...small blessings!

    This series has been a ride with twist and turns cliff hangers but this one really made me think I wanted to say to Amelia to wake up to her self. Lucius is always hot as ever truly an amazing read thanks again to Mrs Stephanie Hudson. “For all I had left now was a Map... Of Sorrows.” Please go and read this series or this book it’s worth the ride her writing style in amazing.

    Oh... my poor Lucius what have you done now???!!!!?? Well at least Draven is about to kick his ass. With that said.... I love these books they take me to an escape like not all books can. I know some books are not for everyone and even though the descriptions of derring and attire is really long sometimes it helps with the visual. I live Stephanie's writing and cannot wait for the next book as usual, but in a good way because I know its coming soon. Oh... my poor Lucius what have you done now???!!!!??

    Following Lucius and Amelia's romance is like being on a roller coaster ride. There are so many twists and turns that if the ride was real the queue would be past the parks gate for the absolute thrill of it. Personally I've never actually been on a roller coaster and I definitely wouldn't be queuing to go on one, but I'm already in line for the next instalment. Bring it on Mrs Hudson, I'm ready for more of your awesome tale. Following Lucius and Amelia's romance is like being on a roller coaster ride.

    I thought the action dragged a bit too much. And Amelia annoyed me to no end with her desire to keep things secret between them. But considering the ending, the next one should be a blast :)

    It took me less than 4 days to read the first 5 books in this series. In times of Corona, I thought that an escape from reality would do me good, but ... wow .... Lucius and Amelia's relationship is a pure roller coaster ride and then the respective cliff hangers ... - I just needed more and more of these two (LOL). I also like that the plot is told alternately from two different perspectives. If you like fantasy with strong characters (which are sometimes "a little bit" overdrawn*), I highly rec It took me less than 4 days to read the first 5 books in this series.

And it is clear she does. Understand how a Chosen One works. And growing up in this world she really should.

Her obsession with Lucius being in love with her mother is so beyond irritating at this point and it’s not even completely her fault since Lucius hasn’t been exactly forth coming with information. Classic miscommunication. And I just want smack both of them. Amelia for not realizing the number of time he said he doesn’t love or even care for her mother in that manner. And Lucius for first putting the thoughts in her head and secondly not explaining his past that involves Keira. Lesson to be learned. Stop withholding information and always be truthful. Holding back only causes more problems. Now the way Amelia left she basically left a nice cluster fu** for her parents and Lucius to straighten out while she did what she seems to always do. Run. I swear this girl don’t stay and take responsibility for her mess, ever. If she feels threatened or hurt she runs. And completely misses the important stuff. Misses all the signs. And jumps to outlandish conclusions. Like Lucius and her mom having an affair. Which again points to the fact that she clearly just doesn’t grasp the concept of a Chosen One. Like it seems they have eyes for no one else. So how could either party be with anyone else??? If this girl don’t stop her crazy I don’t if I’m going to be able to handle the rest of the series. Like I might need a break from it. Guess we will see what happens next.

    Wow!!! Another great saga read about Lucius and Amelia! Stephanie Hudson you did it again! I cannot wait for Transfusion 6 to come out. All the characters came alive in this series, Dom not knowing about his daughter’s romance with Lucius, and Kiera’s secret she has kept from the family for years and the guilt she has for keeping the secret. Best part of the story in my opinion was Amelia trying to hide Lucius under her bed when Kiera, Pip, and Sophia arrived. That part of the book had me laughin Wow!!!

That part of the book had me laughing so hard with the scene of Pip keeping Sophia and Kiera entertained to keep from finding Luc. It was hilarious! The only thing I didn’t like about the book and I believe some would agree with me is that the story was not long enough. Two hundred pages plus, for me is not long enough especially with a cliffhanger at the end. I’m impatiently waiting for book 6 to arrive and can’t wait to read what the next adventure and reconciliation between Amelia and Lucius will have. You are a brilliant story writer Stephanie Hudson and I cannot wait for more “Afterlife characters” get their chosen ones.

Thane is mentioned in this one too and again when Theo other series is incomplete, you are getting pulled in different directions. Confusing a bit on what is happening there when there is a big chunk of time (books) missing to fill in gaps. However, I am anxiously awaiting all filler books and the next in Lucious - Amelia story! Hooked on this world!

    I'm getting lazy in my reviews of this series, as they're all becoming more of the same. For the most part, I really like the cast of characters, and the plot. Most of the focus is on Amelia and Lucius, and continued tension, back and forth bickering and sexual tension, which is renewed once again thanks to them trying to keep their relationship on the DL from her parents. The broader story arc seems rushed, where I kind of wish more time was spent making sense of the action and mystery events.

I truly was hoping this would be the final book in the series, but it isn't. I feel like I just don't want to spend so much time watching sexcapades, instead of getting lost in a good story. Even though the next installment comes out in a matter of days, I'm not sure I'll pick it up. I kind of crave something more mentally satisfying.

    So good until the cliff hanger Amelia is displaying more confidence, skills of warfare and strategy because she has been taught by the best of the kings who are mostly her uncles and bodyguards. Her love of history, her humor, quick wit and humanity is both a gift and a curse. Lucius is so demanding and bossy because he is ancient. The supernaturals underestimated their enemy and each time their arrogance is again turned against them.

I feel for Amelia’s straddling the two worlds but now is clearly ready for a seat at the table. She is a princess who has learned a lot and because she sees things from a different angle she is going to eventually stop getting bossed around and protected when that same protection keeps taking her closer to danger. After all, dad brought the box to her from the jump.

From the first book to this one I couldn't put them down they had me so engrossed and the characters are brilliant. Amielia and luc as she sometimes calls him are breath taking I laughed so much and sat on the end of my seat gripped to what will happen next . A must read all I can say is fantastic and brilliant.

    An honest review?? Not so sure. I don't know if the book was hard to get into or if it was me. What with all the stuff going on in the world these last couple of months, the corona virus and all the effects it's had in our lives. It's still a good read, just a little slow. Sorry Stephanie, I love all your and your husband's books. Looking forward to your next books. An honest review?? Not so sure. I don't know if the book was hard to get into or if it was me.

    Head shake and eye roll on the ending Just like her mother, amelia doesnt wait to hear the story she puts 2 and 2 together to get 5 and causes a whole loss of trouble!

    Ahhhh! I'm so frustrated. Why can't Lucius and Amelia admit who they are to each other. After 5 books Amelia's attitude about their relationship is getting tiresome. Halfway through the book we we're finally getting more meat of the story and drama. But, then they're back to fighting the relationship and themselves again. I liked it and I'm definitely excited for the next one. Ahhhh! I'm so frustrated. Why can't Lucius and Amelia admit who they are to each other.

    Omg I want to shake Amelia, she doesn’t act like a grown woman sometimes, just a petulant child but I’m betting the finale will show everything in a new light for what it actually is. Secrets will be revealed and truths told. I just hope Lucius and Amelia get their HEA. Loved this read and I’m moving straight on to the finale. Highly recommend

    mostly good. very good story line but.. I mostly enjoyed this book. there was a great start and a great ending. I had to skip through at least one chapter as it was so silly. and the story line branched off into mini stories . It was like finding a thread of gold in material and trying to follow it even when it was a bit frayed in places.
