This book in one sentence: A haunting, heartwrenching, action-packed emotional roller coaster of a read that will leave an impression on you long after your finish the book.

To say that I love this book or this series would be an understatement. Traci Slatton has done an immpecable job with what I thought would be an impossible hurrdle for her two main characters to overcome after the ending of Fallen. Not only did she do the impossible, but she made me love the characters and the new additions to the book even more.

Emma has seen, faced and survived the impossible. She has seen the world destroyed by mists that ravage everything in its path. She survived while caring for her child and several abandoned children. She offered her body to a man, Arthur, in exchange for his protection and shelter in his camp and found unexpected love in a world filled with grief. She found out that her husband and other daughter survived in a safe-zone in Canada. She also discovered that Arthur is the cause for the mists and that her husband risked his life to come for her. She leaves with her husband to Canada, but her heart remains with Arthur and the people of the camp who became family.

Now, after a year away from Arthur and from being rescued by her husband, the impossible has happened again. Her daughter has been taken, and it is up to Emma to get her back. In order to do so she is confronted by her past and by the one man who both stole and broke her heart, Arthur.

Arthur caused the mists and it is up to him to stop them, but not before he gets what he feels is rightfully his, Emma. She has a husband, but this is a new world, a new day and what they feel for eachother is uncomparable.

I don't know why Traci L. Slatton keeps torturing me! WHY? Ms. Slatton certainly knows how to keep you glued to your seat. Such great writing that I didn't put this book down until I finished it. I knew I should have waited until the 3rd book came out because now I have to wait in agony. This was a great follow up to Fallen and I hope the author MAKES Emma take a stand. Don't take the choice out of her hands, please.

If you remember from Book 1, Emma and her youngest daughter Mandy were separated from her husband Haywood and her oldest daughter Beth. Emma didn't know if Haywood and Beth survived, but she fought hard to keep herself and Mandy alive. She met Arthur, a leader of a new community in France, and became his woman. Together, Emma and Athur led and organized the community, building a new life together. In the end, Haywood found Emma and Mandy, leaving Arthur behind and devastated.

Book 2 begins 1½ years after Haywood rescued Emma and Mandy from France and returned to them to Edmonton. Of course, tragedy strikes again. Raiders kidnap Emma's oldest daughter Beth and they don't know where she was taken. The search for her daughter brings Emma face to face with the love she left behind, Arthur, and her community. They are mad at her for abandoning them, but they love her enough to help her search for her daughter Beth. Together, Emma, her husband Haywood, Arthur and the rest try to rescue Beth from a gang of raiders. Meanwhile, Arthur and Haywood insist that Emma honor her feelings towards them. Though Emma tries to get rid of Arthur, Arthur and the gang refuse to let Emma leave them again because they feel that their destiny is intertwined with Emma's. Haywood, Emma's husband isn't willing to leave her to her old lover either. So Emma has to make a painful choice again.

“Gun fire and war cries, screams of terror and hooves and explosive charges, rattled, boomed and whistled through the frigid air.” This is the beginning of Book Two of the After trilogy series.
A major raid on Emma’s village and the kidnapping of her daughter, Beth, tear Emma apart. In one sense, she’s lucky Beth is alive but doesn’t know where she’s been taken or what will happen to her by the brutal raiders who care not for life or death but only their own gain. It’s been over a year since the last vicious battle, but once again Emma steels herself and insists she will travel through the brutal winter to find and rescue her precious child. The weather is not the only danger; the poisonous Mists that feed on the lives of the ones they surround have been seen northwards. Add to that there are enemy towns with strict rules, especially the one promising death to any person stupid enough to steal a horse.
For supplies are thinning out and winter is the worst time as nothing can be grown. Towns that were destroyed by the Mists have run out of canned goods and other necessities of life, but the people are learning to survive by the old ways before technology made life so amazingly easy, so unappreciated at the time. So Emma travels through vicious storms and enters towns where she trades her skills as a Healer for basic food and shelter for sleeping, just managing to avoid those with lurid desires and plans.
In her heart as she travels, Emma longs for her lover, the enigmatic Robert who actually accidentally created the Mists that are destroying the world a section at a time. Yes, she is married but not to Robert. Her husband Haywood is not strong enough to keep her from going and Robert has returned for Emma and another reason which he will not initially reveal.
