Snowscape is set after the end of Monsters of Men, so that’s when you should read it.

That’s all I’ll say, I don’t want to give anything away. ;-)

Attention Chaos Walking fans! You can read this story as well as "The New World" and "The Wide Wide Sea" by going here! Or see message 15 in the comments below (in fact, that would probably be the better option because it's faster, haha).

Note: If you haven't read the whole trilogy yet, this story is best read after Monsters of Men. … And by that I mean, trust me, do not read this unless you've read Monsters of Men. Or you will like, spontaneously combust or something.

Well, all I can say is … My

Oh my god WHAT. WHAT. WHAT.


CAN WE HAVE A 3.75 TOO?????

OR MAYBE A 3.95???

OR MAYBE A 4.0?!?!??!?


If war is hard - and it is, forever and always -then after war is just as hard, in a different way.

A glimpse into what happened after Monsters of Men ended. It includes one of my favorite characters - Wilf. I really, really miss Todd though. Mr.Ness can you pretty please write another full length installment in the Chaos walking series. And if it's not asking too much maybe you can bring Manchee back from the dead.

The last sentence was the only thing that mattered for me in all 40 of those pages.

Again, what a surprise these Novellas have turned out to be. I can only hope for more brilliance from Ness in this World he has created.

My prayers/positive thoughts have been answered! Patrick Ness actually wrote two additions short stories set in the Chaos Walking world.


Well it is real life and I can't handle what my emotions are doing to me


Oh right, the review. Ahem...right. Back on track.
Without saying too much about the plot, I want to establish an already known fact: Patrick Ness knows how to write young adult stories. This was no exception. We all know how you felt reaching the end of Monsters of Men
Not an official review but OH MY EFFING GOODNESS!!!!

Spoiler coming up:

I began to read this story out of the pure curiosity of what happens to our beloved Todd and as soon as I began to read, I realized that I'll never get the closure I wanted. I was 99.9% sure that there would be no mention of Todd because of where the story was headed....



And those were the only words I ever had to hear. After having my heart broken

YESS! That last page was exactly what I wanted! Perfect! <3

One morning before school, I saw a tweet from one of my tumblr friends talking about a website. I go to it, and find the Chaos Walking short stories there. I entered my email, and later that day in English class, I checked it on my phone. I got the links and convinced my English teacher to let me read on my phone. By the end of Snowscape, I'm in tears. We finally got the ending we had hoped for. Snowscape was great; it not only gave us a unique story about Wilf and Lee, but it also gave us closu ...more

This short little novella is based on what happens after Monsters of Men and is for people who just could not let go of the story after the series ended….

It's told from Lee's POV which is interesting since he's blind but to be honest I did miss hearing the story told in Todd and Viola’s voices.

I would highly recommend the entire Chaos Walking: A Trilogy as it is one of the most unique dystopian series I have come across in a long time.

This was a nice little ending, a nice little short story to give us an idea of what went on following the events of Monsters of Men.

For me the short story wasn’t quite what I had expected – I wanted more details about the lives of our main characters, and it was only really the final line that I had been on the edge of my seat to hear – but it was nice to get more of the world.

What I really loved was the way in which we were given Lee’s perspective of the world. Lee quickly became one of my favo

I got exactly what I wanted from this post-trilogy novella and more. I'm extremely happy right now :)

I did not want to read this book. I suspected it would ruin the brilliant ending of Chaos walking for me. And it did. Read the spoiler at the end for more info.

An amazing, thought provoking, well-written yet unnecessary book. This book serves two purposes:
One, to re-immerse fans of the Chaos Walking trilogy back into New World through a completely different story that occurs past second war with the Spackle.
Two, to serve as a closure to trilogy that had the perfect ending already.

the last novella in the chaos walking trilogy .... it was a really good one, despite that it is small (45 pages) it was full of actions and with new ideas ...

I really recommend to read this novella for all the people who read the chaos walking trilogy because most of the reader skip the novellas , but they are really good so read them people

Spoiler alert! Todd's awake! Todd's awake! That's all I have.
Just what I needed after the trilogy!
OMG OMG OMG! I have tears welling in my eyes. :')
The ending :)
Has Patrick Ness been graced by God himself or something? This man never fails to write amazing stories honestly...

4 stars just because Todd woke up haha
This short story takes place after the events of Monsters of Men but only maybe a few months to a year later. Man, I read Monsters of Men quite a while ago but I *still* managed to tear up at the end of this story... Love, love, love this series. And glad to know there is still hope for Todd and Viola.
That was both frustrating and amazing.

Why Patrick Ness, Why?

If you have read the Chaos Walking Trilogy but have not read the novella taking place after Monsters of Men, read it! Okay. Read it! He wrote an amazing story. Patrick Ness is a genius.

My emotions while reading, in order of appearance: Confusion (How much time has passed since MoM? Who are all these people?). Creeped out (the Snowscape). Heartbroken (the truth about the Snowscape). Shocked (Mikkelsen). Happy (Viola). Goosebumps (Viola's message).
This is the last of the bonus short stories and what seems to be the continuation towards the conclusion of the Chaos Walking series. It shows how the New World evovled as the settlers came and when peace was achieved with the Spackle. It also provided the ending of Todd waking up. I would have wished that Ness wrote more about it, on how Viola and Todd will end up on the New World and if they will really still runaway to live on their own. I know for one I'm left wanting more of Viola and Todd' ...more
Basically me as I reached the end:
