He always knew that loving her would not be easy. He didn’t care. Jon thought he would do anything for Angelina, that if you loved someone, the choices were just that simple and giving everything to the lady who held your heart was just a part of it all.
But what she asks of him challenges more than his position as a member of the elite Squad Room, the one remaining Government Agency sworn to defend the people against the cruelties of the Criminal powers that reign in the post apocalyptic Urban Wars societies barren and dense metropolis.
No, the challenge was not loving her or the plan she laid before him to initiate The Prophesy, complete a legacy he had dreamed of and participate in the beginning of a turbulent end.
The challenge was her bargain for his soul.
I enjoyed reading Cold Wind in August: Urban Wars 2. The story was fairly simplistic and had good potential. I felt it was a good story over-all but had a few problems. For example: the sentence structure is odd in places, “The same applied to the torrential spray of emotions that coursed through every crevice of his body then and now.” The “then and now” just seems off, perhaps “now as it did then” would have felt more ‘right.’ It is the second time on the same page I had to re-read a sentence to make certain I had read it correctly due to the verbiage choice. Also, the characters were not quite together. The brother’s waffling on murdering his sister were not explained well, perhaps if the author had added more to the anguish he felt at the thought of taking his only sister’s life and a little suspense as to what was to come. There was an opportunity to play the siblings off of each other to build more tension. I liked the twist at the end as to who died and who lived. The author left the story in such a way she could have an Urban Wars 3.
