Review of Book Two Cold Light: Jasmyn

*May contain small spoilers if you have not read book one and two*

Once again Emma was forced to choose between Arthur and Haywood, and once again she chooses her past and her husband.  But when she gets word that Arthur has been captured and Jeannie is deathly ill and needs her help, she leaves once again to find the man she really loves.

A lot of loose ends are tied up in this book and the romance really starts to shine through.  While there still wasn't what I would call a HEA ending, it was definitely more hopeful and very close to a HFN ending.  This book really puts the spotlight on Emma and Arthur and their relationship.  Forced to confront parts of their past and look towards what their future may really be like, they struggle together and seem to have a mountain inbetwen them at times.

This is also still very much an spocalyptic type novel.  The Mists are evolving and seem to have a hive type mind driving them.  The world is becoming more dangerous while at the same time a new type of civilization is developing from the remains.  Emma and Arthur will both have incredible important roles (they are the main characters after all) to play in this process.  I really enjoyed this series.
