About the Author

Traci L. Slatton is a graduate of Yale and Columbia, and the award-winning, internationally published author of books of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.

She lives in Manhattan and her love for Renaissance Italy inspired her historical novel IMMORTAL, which was published around the world and achieved bestseller status in Italy, Russia, and Brazil. Her novel THE BOTTICELLI AFFAIR is a contemporary romp through the art history byways of vampire lore. Voted “Reviewers Choice Best Read of 2011” by The Paranormal Romance Guild, FALLEN is the first of the romantic After Trilogy set during the end times. Its sequel COLD LIGHT furthers the dystopian tale, and FAR SHORE is Book 3.

DANCING IN THE TABERNACLE is her first book of poetry; PIERCING TIME & SPACE is a non-fiction look at the meeting of science and spirit. THE ART OF LIFE is a photo-essay of sculpture history and philosophy written her husband, whose work is also showcased.

The Review: I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I’m afraid Fallen fell a bit short for me. Lots of action? You betcha. Lots of characters to remember? You betcha. Lots of ‘mist’ rules? You betcha. Protagonist catchphrase that drove me as crazy as the mists? You betcha. Post-apocalyptic bliss? Not so much. The idea of the novel isn’t really unique. These “end of the world we are all so dead” novels seem to be pretty common nowadays, probably because of the doomsday tv of late; however, this one did, at least, have a novel method-o-destruction—the mist. This ubiquitous mist rises at unpredictable times and consumes everything in its path, buildings, people, and apparently sanity as well. If you are lucky enough to escape its insidious grasp, you could be left a few sticks shy of a campfire but not always. You see, that was my issue. There were lots of (for lack of better term) ‘rules,’ but those rules seemed to be as fickle as the mist itself. The mist kills but not everyone. The mist crazes but not always. The mist returns but not everywhere. The mist grants supernatural powers but only to some. Confused yet? The character turnaround was overwhelming, too. Obviously, characters will come and go when you live with a semi-nomadic—but extremely intelligent—band of rag tags converging in France from all over Europe and Asia, but I became completely frustrated by all the names, backstories, and former occupations. However, I’m thinking this might not be such a terrible place to live considering the wealth of knowledge converged in camp. Emma seems to be the only useless character in the whole place; thank goodness she developed that whole healing thing, that and she’s apparently great in the bedroll. Otherwise, why would Arthur keep her around? 2.5 stars
