This weird apocalypse takes place in the Arctic, not the typical setting. Blindness, crazed polar bears, disappearances, methane filled craters/portals, demons, and overall mayhem galore. Add in the frozen blizzard conditions and we've got ourselves a non-traditional apocalyptic delight.
Jennifer Ellis has created some rich character relationships which are masterfully coupled with a fair smattering of dysfunctional workplace nasty-not-niceness. Most enjoyable.
To top it all off, the authors credentials lend some scientific credence to the more technical aspects of the story. Though by no means do you need a scientific background to follow this, it's nice to know the author has street cred in that area.
Well done, most worthy of being an AW launch book, and I highly recommend.
After Reversal I understand why she is in the leading group. She set her apocalyptic story at the North Pole, dealing with quite believable science for a novel of this kind. The plot is engaging and the main characters are of the kind you care of.
I'm looking forward to reading the sequel and other stories in this world.
Little bit of a spoiler here, not so much if you've read any of the wonderful Apocalypse Weird novels. The way Jennifer Ellis handles the day of darkness flat out terrified me! The last thing I read that scared me that much was probably the beginning of Watchers by Dean Koontz. It's THAT scary! Looking forward to more in this universe, in this series, and from every one of these fine writers.
At first I enjoyed the story and the characters. At about 35% on my Kindle, the story went beyond weird and at 45% simply fell down the rabbit hole. I was waiting for Alice to appear. Or did someone slip me something psychedelic? Briefly it seemed to traverse Journey to the Center of the Earth and the Book of Revelations where the Four Horsemen were now chastising us for global warming....or oops....climate change. I gave up at the 53% point on my Kindle. So the rating is only for half the book.
Another disclosure: I LOVE THIS BOOK! The science is strong, the characters and the growth through the book are significantly stronger. This contribution to the AW universe is unique and interesting, with a very unusual arctic arena for the hero's road to begin. I look forward to book 2.
