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.

COLD LIGHT (After Trilogy #2) by Traci L Slatton

COLD LIGHT is the second instalment in Traci L Slatton's After Trilogy focusing on the aftermath of a biological apocalypse and the men and women forced to make heartbreaking decisions. The storyline takes place 18 months after (Fallen) Emma escapes the mist-ravaged plains of Europe and the reality that the loss of billions of lives is in the hands of the one man she had grown to love.

With her family together in the safe zone of Edmonton, Emma's thoughts continued to center around Arthur and his revelation he was responsible for the mind-altering/life consuming destructive mists that are relentless on their path of destruction. But safety in the zone is short lived when her eldest daughter Beth is abducted and held hostage in a rogue encampment hundreds of kilometers away. Knowing she would risk everything for the safe return of her daughter, Emma embarks on a frozen trek against deadly odds and an even deadlier enemy to free her daughter from a man who once owed her a debt.

Arthur's search for Emma had taken 18 months across land and ocean, and his discovery of his lost love in a small town in Canada both shocked and surprised. With his family of gifted survivors, Arthur's passion for survival is second to his love for the woman whose heart he had destroyed. But the happiness of finding Emma is short lived when she announces her plans to rescue her daughter and regardless of the love she felt for Arthur, her number one priority was her child. Knowing he would never let her go, Arthur and the others resign themselves to a deadly adventure to reunite Emma and her daughter. As both the hero and the anti-hero Arthur is a charismatic leader.
