It has been over a year since Emma returned to the safe zone. She and her daughter Mandy have been reunited with Emma’s husband, Haywood and Beth, her oldest. For a year they have been living as a family in a relatively secure area in Canada. That is until bandits raid the town and kidnap Beth. Now Emma must go alone into treacherous subzero temperatures and travel many miles on foot to save her. Along the journey she runs into Arthur, who sailed across the Atlantic with their friends to find Emma. As she travels with them she is torn between the love of her husband and Arthur, who she has never been able to forget. With their destination drawing near, she must make the hardest decision of her life.
The last time Emma had seen Arthur on the shores of France, she was heartbroken and certain he was as good as dead. Having Arthur in her life again is sweet torture. How can she return to a life with Haywood when Arthur owns her heart and soul? The only thing she is sure of on the entire journey is that she must save her daughter. Everything else would have to wait.
Arthur has only ever loved Emma. He dreams of ridding the world of the mist, permanently and he knows he needs Emma with him if he is to succeed. Not only to complete him emotionally but also to use her special psychic powers. The mist is stronger and has changed somehow. His power to control the mist is not enough without her.
This series continues to haunt me. I fell in love with the characters in the first installment, Fallen. Within this story, the characters have changed for the better. The tension was high throughout the story. As the reader joins in the adventure, they continue to wonder if Emma will be in time to save her daughter, if she will give into the overwhelming love and desire between her and Arthur and if the mist will catch them. The surprises were thrilling and sprinkled within the story adding fun to an already compelling plot. The ending is left open allowing for the possibility of third installment. For which this reader, hopes is more than a possibility. I have loved both books in this series.
The end of the world brings chaos, madness, and psychic powers. For Emma and Arthur, separated by an ocean, it brings a love that demands everything. Emma's beloved daughter is kidnapped by vengeful raiders, and Emma embarks on a soul-crushing journey to rescue her. When Arthur finds Emma, can she trust him?
