Book Description Courtesy of author’s website:
An old enemy wreaks new havoc at the end of the world…
After the mists’ lethal apocalypse, mankind’s only hope for survival lies broken and battered, the prisoner of a ruthless sociopath who will stop at nothing to hurt him. Emma sets out to rescue him. She faces an ultimatum and must relinquish everything she holds dear. As Arthur teeters on the brink of life and death, Emma’s healing ability fails. Her own despair tests her, and she must grow stronger than she ever dreamt possible as she confronts the truth of her own heart.
In a time of apocalyptic despair, love is put to the test…
A mystical odyssey, a haunting love…
This is such a great series. I fell in love with Emma and Arthur, as individual characters and as a couple, about the time they started to realize their love themselves in Fallen. Theirs is a powerful, soul shattering kind of love that only happens once in a lifetime. A love that can cause even the most pragmatic mind to act in a completely illogical fashion. Ms. Slatton left me heartbroken with the endings of both Fallen and Cold Light and the plight she left for these two. I so wanted Emma and Arthur to find happiness, only to have my hopes dashed on the rocks time and time again. But… that just makes for a better experience- where you come back for more, because you just know- with characters that speak to a writer as eloquently as these two, she is incapable of leaving them be. There will be happiness and peace eventually. As readers, we just have to wade through the complications and perils life keeps throwing at them, and persevere until we reach that point with them.
As with both previous books, I was unable to put it down. I love when I can read a book in one sitting, even though it created a physical longing for the epic conclusion that is coming. And I have no doubt that it will be epic.
The usual cast of characters is present, each growing and evolving in their personalities and depth of character. Theirs is a unique, thrown together family that will do everything in their power to protect one of their own. I truly hope that if humanity is faced with something of this magnitude one day, that some will pull together and help each other as this group has done. A great story, with a great cast that is a definite must-read for Slatton fans, and those looking for an exceptional dystopian sci-fi series.
