I finished this one in less than a day, and while I could say it is because it is a little too short, it is mostly because it is just a captivating read. The characters grabbed me from the beginning, especially the main character of Lia. A terrific, strong female character, she has found herself stuck in limbo as she is now solely responsible for her family as her parents have been killed by the Watchers, monsters that live in the woods around her village. These monsters only attack at night and Lia's farm is on the furthest edge of the village so life is always perilous for her and her family. The words Kate Avery Ellison has used to describe this seemingly always-in-winter landscape are so evocative, I could practically see my own breath as I read. I particularly like that LIA saves the boy in this story, not the other way around. I do agree with other reviewers who have felt that the book was a little short; the ending felt a bit rushed, and there was a serious question that I was left with at the book's end (a possible logic flaw, but hopefully that will be taken care of in the next book). Otherwise, I definitely recommend this book and look forward to the next installment (hopefully she is writing it right now!).
