Fallen, by Traci L. Slatton
Fallen is the first book in a romantic trilogy set in end times, and its sequel, Cold Light, is set for release summer 2012.
I was sent this book to review and I love it. My faithful readers know I am not one to fudge my blogposts!
Fallen, which was released July 2011, has received fantastic reviews, and I am a fan, too!
"As chaos descends on a crippled Earth, survivors are tormented by strange psychic gifts. In this time of apocalyptic despair, love is put to the test. One woman with mysterious healing power guides seven children to safety. Charismatic Arthur offers her a haven. Slowly Emma falls for him. But at the moment of their sweetest love, his devastating secret is revealed, and they are lost to each other. Will Emma stay with him?"
It is well-written, and I love the sci-fi aspects of it, the paranormal activities. It makes for a great read. My volunteer life is pretty end-of-life, serious health issues, and I like a murder-mystery, or Jodi Picoult's life and death issues. This book is incredible. It puts life into perspective for me.
I am only on chapter ten of eighteen, and have been busy for a volunteer! I have had a couple of needy Home Support clients, joined a new Board of Directors (Friends of Murphy's Point Park - worked our table at Festival of the Maples), and had a 2nd birthday party for my 2nd granddaughter. But I cannot put it down!
This is a great book. It's not for the faint of heart. It is for women who want to hear their voice and are as comfortable chopping wood, as wearing make-up. As the world changes, I like to read about women who make their own decisions, have opinions, and possess inner courage and strength. We older women worked long and hard to fight against antifeminist media and men. We want all of us to have choices; our sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters.
I love the main character, Emma Strong; knows her own mind, down-to-earth, smart, talented, powerful, not unlike the author! I highly recommend it!
