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.

    " I was really looking forward to this, as I always loved Riley in the Immortal Series. I'm not disappointed as such, as i understand that these books are being written for a younger audience, but i do wish that the book had been longer, and a little more to do with the Immortals series, as Ever and her storyline were hardly mentioned. I think this'll be a great series for new fans, but perhaps a little disappointing for Immortals Series fans. "

    " Well ok. The book was just frankly beautiful on the cover. Look at it! Seriously, love it! Unfortunately, that is where the love ends. It was totally written for the tween set. Iusally don't mind it. However, it seemed just too watered down and it didn't have the spark that I expected. "
