This is such a great series. I fell in love with Emma and Arthur, as individual characters and as a couple, about the time they started to realize their love themselves in Fallen. Theirs is a powerful, soul shattering kind of love that only happens once in a lifetime. A love that can cause even the most pragmatic mind to act in a completely illogical fashion. Ms. Slatton left me heartbroken with the endings of both Fallen and Cold Light and the plight she left for these two…
As with both previous books, I was unable to put it down. I love when I can read a book in one sitting, even though it created a physical longing for the epic conclusion that is coming. And I have no doubt that it will be epic.

The eagerly awaited third book in the acclaimed After Series

Far Shore is the third book in author Traci. L. Slatton's After series and just like the previous two books, it's a non-stop roller coaster ride of action, betrayal, lust, violence, horror and redemption.

Far Shore was my most anticipated book release of the year and may I say that it was well worth the wait! I absolutely love this book (and the After series in general)….When I first started reading the After series, I was under the impression that it was going to be a trilogy and after reading Far Shore I really hope there are more books and it really does become a series of books. Because frankly, three books just isn't enough for this exciting post-apocalyptic tale. I really love how Traci writes her characters. They are just so well developed and her writing impeccable. Arthur and Emma have come so far together and I can't wait to see what happens and how they will save the world.

The world has collapsed and the nightmare is never ending for Emma as she makes an impossible decision, and must live with its consequences. Arthur is found, but what is left is hardly identifiable as human, whether he will live or not is in question, but Emma’s sense of responsibility, loyalty and love leave her no choice but to try to save what is left of him…. Do NOT expect to be comfortable with all of the decisions made or the actions taken, this world is still bleak, filled with deceit and treachery, but there is still hope, there is still love. In the end, it may have been one uncomfortable decision that ultimately may save the world and someone had to be strong enough to make it.

Far Shore (and The After series) is a story that makes you wonder about the what ifs and whys of a world at war. If the ultimate weapon of mass destruction is let loose onto a world of innocent people, what will happen when said weapon evolves and comes looking for the creator? Do we really trust the people in charge of our daily lives and if not, what will happen when the people at the top, can no longer control the monster within?
Traci L Slatton has written another wonderful and amazing storyline that looks at the aftermath of an experiment gone horribly wrong. It is a story about love and loss; betrayal and pain; and a second chances to make everything right. And it is also about two people, who have found love amongst the chaos and destruction, only to lose each other at the hands of a man tortured by his own loss. Sometimes there is only one choice and that choice is to survive, no matter what someone else has in mind.

The camaraderie between the characters also balances out the darker themes of the book, and truthfully, just makes is more interesting to read. The series is really about the human condition so it’s also nice to see how different characters deal with the new struggles of this post-apocalyptic world.
This series definitely keeps getting better and better! Mysteries about the Arthur and the origin of the mists continue to be revealed and the mists begin to evolve into something stronger and more organized. I was introduced to this series as a trilogy but I really hope it doesn’t end with book 3. Emma and Arthur’s story is definitively not over and I can’t wait to see how things will unfold. I would absolutely recommend this series to any fan of dystopian books…

I have recently discovered Traci L. Slatton's writing and I am completely enthralled with her series, The After Trilogy. Read my reviews of book one, Fallen, and book two, Cold Light. I never dreamed I'd love this series as much as I do. I was on pins and needles waiting for Far Shore, and I stopped everything (including the book I was reading at the time) to read this book.
Slatton did not disappoint my high expectations: I loved every single second of Far Shore. I did not want the book to end, and found myself trying to slow my reading pace, just to make the book last longer. Slatton's writing style makes this series so special...
The premise of the earth-destroying mists is so unique and well-executed.
Kelli, I'd so rather be reading
