STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Chilling - Want To Listen On

THE BIRDICT

🧡 Thoroughly likeable characters. A trio of friends, all with interesting back stories, meet up to stay at a cabin. I felt the bond between these three and liked their banter.

💚 The sudden apocalypse is one of my favourite kinds of world ending scenarios. The snow is intriguing and especially how it begins to unfold. I mean, it’s a bit random, but the characters pulled me on.

💜 And note how I said, “begins to” unfold. This is part of a series and this first part is too short. I get the sense it was one long book and just cut up into three. There’s no resolution in this part.

💛 Excellent news - this is part of a series, so there is an obvious next read if you enjoy this. The sudden apocalypse aspect reminded me of the Gray series. If you like this, try anything by Sarah Lyons Fleming. I recommend The City series.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 I’d call this both easy to follow and a mesmerising. An unusual combination and greatly enhanced by veteran narrator, Matt Godfrey. His dream-like drawl transports me to a movie scene where two teens stare up at the stars atop a car bonnet. It genuinely added to my enjoyment of this audiobook.

The Snow

THE BLURB

This is how the world ends: with a single snowflake.

After a tragic accident at work, all Grady Miller wanted was an escape. He finds it months later with two of his closest friends. Together, the three of them travel south to Prism Lake for the upcoming holiday, where they plan on spending the sunny weekend drinking, grilling, and relaxing.

But when a series of monstrous blizzards cover the Eastern United States in feet of snow, knocking out communications and making the roads impossible to drive on, they realize their weekend of fun could turn into a lifetime of survival.

Because there's something out there besides the cold....

Something sinister....
