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..

My Thoughts

Throughout this series one steadfast theme has been front and center that there is still hope for the future, this hope is severely tested many times for both the characters and the reader in every book but especially so in this third installment in the trilogy!

Questions have been answered that were previously raised but there are so many answers still uncovered even as we are in the final stretch to see whether Emma chooses her husband and daughters or if her all consuming passion for Arthur will prevail. The enemy of old is stronger than ever, his hatred leads him to brutalize and maim Arthur to the point he is unrecognizable.

Emma finds herself at an impasse, she is strongly tempted to let her ties go with the band of travelers she has become so close to. However much it pains her to do so she realizes that she has no other choice but to leave her family and do her best to not only save the life of her pregnant friend but she must also do everything in her power to rescue Arthur for the sake of mankind’s future as he is the only weapon they have that can counteract and control the deadly mists.

The strenuous physical journey that Emma undertakes is nothing in comparison to the difficult mental hardships that she must also face once her goal of finding and securing Arthur is met. The man she had fallen in love with was a mere shell, mutilated, scarred and maimed almost beyond saving. The reality of what her choice may cost her if Arthur dies nearly puts Emma into shock at times, by a miracle of fate she finally finds a way to heal the wounds and Arthur is once again physically whole. His mental state however remains that of a simple and overlarge child, Emma’s despair of ever having Arthur whole mentally as well as physically leads her to make a decision she regrets and one that ultimately almost costs her to lose him forever.

As things come to their conclusion we find Arthur and Emma together with all they have shared bonding them tighter than ever! By the time the book finished I was at first heartbroken, then angry, then shocked and by the end still feel that there is so much more to be resolved but am still happy for the choice Emma made and that it worked out for her the way it did as had many a moment when not sure it would.
