Description

Riley has crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. She has picked up life where she left off when she was alive, living with her parents and dog in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. When she's summoned before The Council, she learns that the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure. She's been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a possibly cute, seemingly nerdy boy who's definitely hiding something. They return to earth together for Riley's first assignment, a Radiant Boy who's been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But all of that was before he met Riley . . .

Radiance is the first book in the Riley Bloom series from bestselling author Alyson Noël.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 16, 2010 – Riley, who appeared in ghost form to her older sister, Ever, in No l's bestselling Evermore, takes center stage in this middle-grade spinoff, first in a planned series. Having recently crossed over into the afterworld, Riley has reunited with her parents, who were killed in the same accident, but is having trouble adjusting. "I'd do anything to go back home," she admits. When she gets assigned to be a Soul Catcher, persuading dead people to "cross the bridge and move on," she is thrilled to return to Earth in spirit form, even if it means traveling with Bodhi, a "dorky" teenage guide. As she and Bodhi help the deceased cross over (at one point, they are sucked into the grieving soul of a mother wrongly executed for her children's murders), the assignments help her, too. If Riley is bratty a fact she realizes after viewing video recaps of her brief life ("Are these like edited or maybe even, um, you know, Photoshopped, or something?") her wit, attitude, and maturation should have readers gladly following her into the second installment. Ages 9 12.

Customer Reviews

Fairly good

I thought this book was very cute. This book was very short I will admit and definitely does not compare to the immortals series, but it was a great way to make a spin off if the series. I suggest this book to younger readers but if you read evermore, then you definitely should read radiance!

Ehhhh

Well I mean--- it was okay. I couldn't really get interested.

Its ummm........

Ok so the synopsis was very misleading. You would think its some cute love story but it turns out to be an odd mish mosh story that was probably written in a week. It gets really confusing and boring at the end. I regret buying a hard copy of this book. Buy it here if your interested but its not worth 4.99.
