Well done. This was definitely a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed the story immensely, and can’t believe I had it in my library for a few months before I started reading it. Although it is totally apocalyptic science fiction, it is definitely one of the better stories I have read this year, with lovable characters, hateable villains, and a storyline that is easy to follow.

Highly enjoyable book!

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. If you have ever wondered what it would take to survive an ice age caused by man manipulating nature, this book is for you.

Read like a class C movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. There were Unnecessary rape scenarios that did nothing to expand the storyline.

What a Fantastic Book

One of those books You can't stop reading but are watching the thickness get smaller and You don't want it to end.
Can't wait until there is another.
I want to tell you some fantastic parts but I am never a spoiler (of stories anyway)

The action started on the first page (actually, the first paragraph) and the Prescotts were pressed to adapt to everything that followed. Themes of family, trusted friends, betrayals, danger, life and death struggles, and community are explored in this novel. I felt a part of their quest and was fascinated how it all came together, fell apart ... and with an ending that begs for more. I hear there's a follow-up book in the works. Keep it coming, Gary. ...more
