About the Author

E.K. Johnston is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of several YA novels, including the LA Times Book Prize finalist The Story of Owen and Star Wars: Ahsoka. Her novel A Thousand Nights was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award. The New York Times called The Story of Owen a clever first step in the career of a novelist who, like her troubadour heroine, has many more songs to sing and in its review of Exit, Pursued by a Bear, the Globe & Mail called Johnston the Meryl Streep of YA, with limitless range. E.K. Johnston lives in Stratford, Ontario. Follow her on Twitter at @ek_johnston

Reviews

"I love this book so very much. It's an epic quest, with female knights and female camaraderie and companionship. I so love how Kate took all the epic's tropes, then not so much subverted them as she did reinvent them in her own female centric image." --Robin LaFevers, New York Times bestselling author of the His Fair Assassin trilogy

"The Afterward features a band of lady knights, a lovely F/F romance, and a unique look at what happens after the heroes save the world. High fantasy lovers, you'll love this."--Julie C. Dao, author of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

"Absolutely delightful. The Afterward is a queer fantasy that evokes series like The Belgariad and The Mallorean but puts a modern twist on them. I adored everything about this book."--Shaun David Hutchinson, author of We Are the Ants

โ˜…"Both the world-building and the LGBTQ romance are well done and appealing.... Delightful."--SLJ, starred

"A compelling fantasy world in which meticulously crafted female characters slip easily between chain mail and dresses."--Kirkus Review

"If there's a Bechdel test for male representation, this book does not pass it."--Rach H., Goodreads.com

"By the time I turned to the last page, I was basking in that warm, tingly glow of having spent worthwhile time with some great new friends."--Forever Young Adult
