THE LOVE OF MY (OTHER) LIFE is up on Netgalley, and a reviewer just finished a review. Evidently she'll put it up on Goodreads, so I can post the link at that time. Here's what she said:
Title: The Love of My (Other) Life
Notes: Loved this book so much - I will be recommending this book to my good-reads, twitter and face book friends and family.
Full Text: At first look, I automatically thought this book was an erotic novel. With the naked bare bottom what else would I think?? What I found was that this was a beautiful story of love and loss with tremendous obstacles. Tessa is drawn to Brian even though she should be afraid of a guy that seems to be stalking her.
There is a magical almost destined feeling to this book.? The whole paralleled universe and how the two meet up and get to know each other kept me hooked throughout the book.
I loved the emotional ending and certainly enjoyed the quirky personalities and the syfi twists.� It made this book all the more interesting.� I have never heard of Traci L. Slatton but I will be looking forward to future reads.
Yesterday I also received word that The Midwest Book Review featured a review of COLD LIGHT on their MDB online magazine "MBR Bookwatch, Klausner's Shelf":
The white miasma Mists burned except chlorophyll. Billions died when the Mists sucked out metals from humans and other beings on the planet during the Day. Arthur saved Emma, her young daughter Mandy and seven lost little orphans attached to her when he dispatched the Mists and brought them into his safe camp. Emma assumed her husband Haywood and their oldest daughter Beth are dead. She and Arthur become an entry while leading their settlement. However, Haywood found his wife and child in France and brought them home to Edmonton leaving Arthur behind despondent from his loss (see Fallen).
In Canada, raiders abduct Beth. She and Haywood search for their child. Clues lead them to Arthur and his townsfolk; all of whom are angry at their former first lady for leaving them. Still everyone joins in on the quest to find and rescue Beth; while Haywood and Arthur demand she choose between them as neither will voluntarily leave her. At the same time, everyone mentally prepares for the confrontation with the Mists knowing many of their loved ones will die in the final battle for survival.
The second exciting "After" post-apocalyptic thriller moves forward on two fronts: Emma's relationships and the anticipated suicidal Armageddon Mists war as Traci L. Slatton deftly blends both subplots into a superb dystopian tale through her quality cast. The triangle participants fear the repercussions on the young at a time when nightmares are prevalent yet none of them can leave. Readers will wonder who will quote Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities: "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."
