Having read the entire Afton Morrison Collection, I was extremely excited to get my hands on the Audible version of it…

Well I can tell you I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED!! First I have to mention Kirstin James, she is INCREDIBLE!! I’m a singer, and I know about working your voice in and out of different keys. But WOW! What she does with her voice is mind boggling to me, it just blows me away!! She TOTALLY brought the characters that Brent wrote to life!! Afton, her character is important and she did her so perfectly! And OMG, Animus too!! I would plug my earbuds in at night sometimes and get so wrapped up in the story, that I ended up more than half the night. Bravo to her performance on every character!!

The entire Afton story. I love this story!! I love Afton and her messed up self. Her dark, twisted, murderous side and her loyal, caring, good hearted side. I’m an Afton FAN!! (Brent, we need T-Shirts or Mugs or something.) I love the whole Animus concept. And I love all the twist and turn and constant surprises. I wishes I could say more, because there’s a lot more I love. (OH, I love Twinkie!) But I don’t want to give too much away for new readers. But I will say that this is an AWESOME book, both to read and to listen to! Or do both, like me!!! 😂 I am really really hoping, FINGERS CROSSED, that there will be more Afton!! Maybe a spinoff, or something!!!

Highly Highly recommend this book if Psychological Thrillers are your thing!! I’m giving it as many stars as allowed, but it deserves stars upon stars upon stars!! You’re the best Brent, don’t stop writing!!

My Review: Time’s Up, Afton by Brent Jones

Time’s Up, Afton

The Afton Morrison Series #4

Brent Jones

.

8F30E342-3666-4A77-AB7B-8F4C68D1F2F0Some secrets stay buried for a lifetime, but nothing lasts forever.

Connected to a number of high-profile deaths, Afton finds herself not only under scrutiny from the chief of police, but damned in the court of public opinion, as well.

In the aftermath of the fiery assault on Wakefield, a low-level gang has infiltrated the town, flooding its streets with bad drugs, killing several teenagers. As Afton prepares for the final showdown with her tormentor, she marks each gang member as a target for elimination, in a methodical plan to gain the upper hand. What follows is a race against the clock that will keep readers guessing until the very last page, as Afton risks life and limb to fulfill her murderous mission of doing good in the world.

Time’s Up, Afton is the fourth and final part in a new serial thriller by author Brent Jones. Packed with grit and action, The Afton Morrison Series delves into a world of moral ambiguity, delivering audiences an unlikely heroine in the form of a disturbed vigilante murderess.

As this series came to a close, the bittersweet feeling of how do I say goodbye to Afton, came over me. I loved this series since it’s beginning , with Go Home, Afton. I could sit here and go through the entire series with you, but that will have to wait until another review….YES, I said another review! The series has ended, but Brent has released The complete Afton Morrison Series as a whole (instead of in parts). It is available through Amazon as of Monday, October 29th in Kindle format, Paperback and HOLYCOW…Audible!!!!! I want it all…EVERYTHING!!!! So, of course I will be doing a review on the completed set. Also, eventually on Audible.

Anyway….on to Time’s Up, Afton! Afton has gained so much as far as family and friends, people truly care about her. But now so much has been taken away. After the fiery assault on Wakefield, now a low-life gang has infiltrated the town and is dealing bad drugs to teenagers, that are killing them. Afton has reached her limit and she is allowing that inner killer to come out and become that antihero we all knew she was. I found it sad. I didn’t want to see Afton have to let that killer out, but she did. It was a part of her and eventually it was going to happen anyway. Using it to save Wakefield and those she cared about was at least the best way she could do it. I found myself disappointed at times, but understood things had to end up like they did.

The epilogue almost sent me over the edge. Oh Afton!!

5++ FIERY STARS!!! I highly, highly recommend this series!! Which you can now read, either by each part separately (books 1-4 kindle only) or as of October 29th the Complete Set as ONE (Kindle, Paperback, Audible). Whatever your preference!!! But I will say this, Brent Jones is an Amazing writer!!! His thought process is incredible!! Characters are SO INCREDIBLY WELL WRITTEN!!! His world building is WELL WRITTEN, EASY TO PICTURE AND FOLLOW!!! His books are edited BEAUTIFULLY, and I was reading the ARCs!!! He must have an AMAZING editor!!! So if you’re questioning the Author, DON’T!!! YOU WON’T BE SORRY!!! As for the story…it is a THRILLER…basically a PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER with an antihero, who talks to her Animus (which is the archetype of self, of the unconscious mind). Very intriguing, RIGHT? Yes, I thought so!! If this sounds right up your alley then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!! Again 5++ FIERY STARS!!!

BOOKS 1 and 2 in the AFTON MORRISON Series

 

 

9B7E33A0-D6E4-4C81-A968-BA3BEC5189DF

Oh my stars, Afton!! I’m still buzzing after reading this third book in the series!! This one was the most anxiety provoking, nail biting, I didn’t know if my kindle and I were going to get through it!! 

Is evil a matter of choice, or are we born that way?
This is basically the thought process for the entire Afton Morrison series. But mostly we see it in this book. So much happens…holy smokes, so many revelations, so much develops and then so much doesn’t get resolved. Know what I mean? Afton is starting to learn more about herself, her feelings, why she’s the way she is. She goes through so much. I feel so bad for Afton. She really hasn’t had it easy and she only seems to know how to rely on herself and Animus (again, herself). She doesn’t even seem to be able to lean on her brother, Chris. He wants to protect her. But she doesn’t want that.
,
“You’re so far out of your depth, it’s not even funny. You’re out making deals with killers, and I can’t even get you to eat a steak.”
,
As for Jared, that boy does seem to know Afton. He appears to be very good at how to handle her.
,
Once again I’m not at all let down by this series. It only gets better and better. I can’t wait to get into book four and find out how Afton gets out of this next jam she’s in!! I’m rooting for you Afton!!!
