Cold Light is the second book in the After Trilogy and it starts almost a year after the end of book one (Fallen).
After Emma and her daughter Mandy are reunited with their father Haywood and her smaller daughter Beth in the save heaven of Edmonton Canada another great tragedy strikes them; Beth is kidnapped by a rogue gang of half mad misfits and criminals.
So Emma begins a journey in the snow, alone, with only company a wild cat and the ghost of Arthur.
During the time of the family reunion Emma still stays heartbroken over Arthur; his presence is visible by almost anyone and is affecting her personal life more and more.
By this point I was already angry with Emma about her choices, she choose her husband but she seems unable to leave Arthur behind; she chooses to go after her daughter alone more to escape the family embrace rather than to really help her kid and lastly she choose to ignore her friends and allies from Europe with the silly and immature notion of keeping them safe when they have already risked everything to be of her aid. I wonder what excuse she will find for abandoning them the third one.
Anyway, I found extremely interesting the way the Mists have evolved and I’m really looking forward to learn the way their existence is going to end. I didn't like the reappearance of an old enemy but I loved Kangee and Laurette, and I wonder if for the last book we will be transferred back to Europe so we can visit the rest of Emma’s “children”.
Overall it was a good story, with lots of new characters and aspects of our favourite MC’s that we haven’t yet glimpsed; this book ends with a mild cliff-hanger also and I’m really anticipating book 3!!!
P.S This book has an awesome cover, don't you think?
