Book Description:

Channel Two predicted a blanket of snow for Thanksgiving weekend--unusual, but not alarming for the little Maine island. What comes is a blinding blizzard, and a mass disappearance of nearly every person Robby Pierce knows. He and his family flee, trying to escape the snow and the invisible forces stealing people right from the street.

Miles away, Brad Jenkins battles the same storm. Alone, he attempts to survive as snow envelops his house. When the storm breaks, Brad makes his way south to where the snow ends and the world lies empty. Join Brad, Robby, and the other survivors as they fight to find the truth about the apocalypse and discover how to live in their new world.



My Opinion:

This is a weird and crazy spin on the end of the world tales that you have read. It's well worth it. I totally enjoyed this book and glad I picked it up to read. I do love these types of books and this one was no exception with it's creepy vibe and a amazing kid that knows but doesn't know what is going on.

We are taken on a journey of the greatest snowfall ever and it happens on thanksgiving weekend. Then people start to disappear and only a few are left. Robby is one of those people and he is trying to figure out what is happening as strange things start happening to him and his family. He is young but he is smart and his parents and most people take his advice because of this. He is their best chance of survival. He has instincts that help. I enjoyed Robby and was biting my nails throughout this book.

My favorite was Brad. He was always talking to his beloved wife who has passed away. I guess that is how he copes with everything. Or atleast makes him feel like she is still there listening to him. Brad has the instincts and the smarts as well. I think I enjoyed his end of the story more.

This book was fast paced, scary and well told. I would recommend this book as I totally enjoyed it and have read the second in this series as well. I think there are four now. I will have to get working on the rest!



About the Author:

Ike Hamill writes fast-paced horror novels with strong, relatable characters. His books have gained a steady following amongst readers who enjoy his blend of sci-fi, paranormal, occult, and suspense. Whether focused on a small family trying to survive the move to a haunted house, or following a band of angry rebels determined to withstand an apocalypse, his stories draw the reader into the lives of real people in crisis.

Reviewers compare Ike to Dean Koontz and Stephen King—two of his favorite authors. His narrative often jumps between interwoven stories, presenting readers with a fresh perspective and keeping them guessing until the last chapter. Most of Ike’s readers are repeat customers. Pick up one of his books to learn why.
