Fallen (After Trilogy, #1) by Traci L. Slatton
I was given a free copy of this book to review and I was just totally blown away by it! I could not put it down. It is an adult dystopian romance novel with a strong kick-ass woman protagonist who is also a mom. When a mysterious mist begins killing everyone and destroying all things made of metal, Emma, and her 5 year old daughter are in France, while her husband and older daughter are in Canada, one of the few areas of the world that seems to be safe from the mist. Emma is a survivor and as she wanders through the dystopian world, she takes in and cares for several children who she finds. When she runs into a group of men who seem well fed and whom her psychic child tells her have a good camp, she and the children join them and she joins Arthur, their leader. Battling cannibals and other roving insane people, captured by a psychotic Russian man and his camp, Emma proves herself to be a useful survivor due to the healing ability that she acquired after the mists came. With romance, action, surprising plot twists and a fantastic plot, this it a totally captivating story. I have already started the second book in the series and cannot put it down either. I totally recommend this series!
