Night Owl Romance reviewer HCHarju posted an awesome 5 star review of FAR SHORE on the illustrious Night Owl Reviews blog. The review starts out, “Oh my goodness. Traci Slatton does it again.” How fun is that??
Here is a quote from HCHarju’s revuew:
I am completely in love with this series. She ups the stakes and the intensity is doubled in every aspect of the book. The mists are even scarier and horrifying than in the previous books. The friction from the love triangle is explosive and the characters are all put to the test of their limits. Emma must face her demons and be strong for herself and for Arthur. Also, my favorite sociopath shows up and has been both a curse and a godsend.
Find it here.
I must say, I am pleased that such an expert reader as Harju enjoyed our very own sociopath; I took some risks with him in the novel, and some of my readers were not pleased.
Night Owl Reviews designated FAR SHORE a “Night Owl Top Pick Review” which is thoroughly lovely!
My father was career Navy, an enlisted man, a chief. He was a difficult man and not a particularly good one, but I was, and am, proud of his record of service to this country.
So when someone suggested that I google the commencement speech by a Navy Seal about making your bed to be successful in life, I was intrigued. I googled and found this wonderful video. I’m glad I followed through.
Admiral McRaven’s words go directly to the core of life: sustaining hope, not giving up, respecting other people, enduring failure and coming back from it, taking risks, and paying attention to the little things.
I’ve been making my bed in the morning in a casual way for a long time, but after listening to this speech, I’ll be taking a more formal approach to square corners and linens drawn tight.
“I have long awaited this second book, Cold Light, after the way Fallen ended. I was NOT disappointed!” writes Jennifer in this impassioned review. Check it out!
Emma’s daughter has been kidnapped by a rogue group and she goes on a suicide mission to get her back. I was very excited to be reunited with a few of the cast from Fallen and am still in anxious need of book three now to see how this all wraps up.
Emma is one strong and determined woman but Arthur is just as determined. I am torn on which way I want Emma to go because with the one man her husband she has the strong history and children but she shares something with Arthur that I dont think she and her husband ever really had or ever will.
I can’t say much more without a spoiler comment but I will say I didn’t really like the way Cold Light ended. I would not want to be in Emma’s shoes and have to make the choices she is being forced to but it’s time…. there can be only one victor in this war.
And to Jennifer and other readers who are asking for Book 3: it’s coming!
“Emma is one of the few who has survived and she has gained the ability to heal with the touch of her hands. I loved her as a main character because she is so solid and strong…. Some type of romantic relationship develops between Emma and Arthur. I love the basis of the relationship, although I totally didn’t expect what happened between them in the first chapter. I have to admit, their bickering and their fighting is quite engaging and it’s the reason the love story behind the book is so interesting. I don’t want to spoil any surprises but it’s quite obvious, as you read the book, that secrets will create a lot of tension, not only between Emma and Arthur, but between the whole group of survivors. … As a whole, I really enjoyed this novel. It’s quite dark at times with the death of so many people and the fighting amongst gangs of survivors…Traci L. Slatton added a great amount of these details, creating a realistic image of a brutal world…Slatton is a wonderful discovery and fans of the genre will be satisfied with FALLEN since, not only is it very original, but it also has a good solid love story at the heart of the book.”

Great book with a main character that I’m not sure how she keeps going. A few time in this story I was waiting for her to give up, I think most people would with everything she was dealing with. I liked how the author kept me wondering what now!! Boy she didn’t let me down either. This book has great ups and big downs and yes I cried a few times. The author makes this like a friend that you taking with and helping on this path. Great story!!
Take a look for yourself, and good luck if you enter the Giveaway!
