This book started out slow to me but I love post apocalyptic books so I had to keep going and I was able to finish it in two days. This story is post apocalyptic and takes places in a village. It deals with a second ice age due to climate change which is a new spin on our usual natural disaster tales. Climate change is a relevant topic today so it was a good choice for the books disaster.
The characters are well developed and the author is extremely descriptive in scene development. While this book is not action packed, it focuses more on the development of the characters and how their lives are all coming together. If you are expecting an action packed story of survival then this book is not right for you. But if you are looking at a story of how people can bond and become a family in the worst of circumstances of this story then this is for you.
