In the Afterlight is the third book in the trilogy The Darkest Minds, written by Alexandra Bracken, published in 2014. It delves deep into the intriguing story of Ruby, and her fight to save the children of America. The government has set off a bomb in Los Angeles and a plague has been going around, killing thousands of America's children. “Rehabilitation” camps have trapped thousands of people and it’s up to Ruby and few others to save them all. The president’s son, Clancy Gray joins them, not as a friend, but as a prisoner. Ruby, the antagonist, does everything in her power to keep control on Clancy before he takes over their minds. The books revolve around the mission of Ruby and her friends to save America from the corruptive government.
Extra “bonus-content” for In the Afterlight is scheduled to be published in 2018.

Her first book was published in 2010, and since then, she has created a huge fan base and has published several other books.
