Firstly, it's longer than the first, but it's also more action packed.
We get to explore more of this post apocalyptic hellscape than we did previously, whilst still being a very charcter driven narrative.
The fact that we find out a bit more of what actually caused the incident was excellent (no spoilers).
You really shouldn't dive in to this one without having read the first, though.
Once you do, you should absolutely dive straight into this one!
On their way across the water in an old, unstable motorboat, they stop to investigate a large luxury yacht left afloat midstream. With the “crabs” in the water attacking the old motorboat, Dominic leaves his companions on the larger ship and lures the creatures downstream away from his friends. Wet and freezing, he is able to get to the opposite shore to the pier for a seafood restaurant. As he’s searching for things he and his friends can use though, he’s captured by four soldiers and taken away in their RV for questioning.
As it turns out, Dominic knows more about what has happened to the world than the soldiers. They, too, have been separated from their units, and have figured out that they were ditched on purpose. As they accept Dominic as part of their group and head back to try to find out what has happened to Dominic’s friends, they discover the headquarters of the organization that Dominic believes may be responsible for “The Event” and the destruction of life as they know it.
Continuing straight from Book 1, the action and horror never quits. What has actually happened unfolds slowly but readers will have to wait for Book 3 to get the rest of the story. I recommend this book and series for readers that like horror stories and post-apocalyptic tales. This is a good one!
This follow up to They Came With the Snow was delightful. Spooky, dangerous, action-filled and edge of the seat thriller. Although some of the situations were a bit contrived, the author mixed enough of the unexpected to hold my attention and pique my curiosity while peeking between the fingers on my hand. The descriptions were well done with good imaging.
The storytelling was true to the expectations from the first book with improved pacing. We pick up where we left off with the group trying to find a way out of the affected area. But the crabs have learned some trick of their own and find ways to prevent their escape. The heroic professor feels obligated to save the group and heads off to find a way. The group acquires a yacht and their job is to stay safe until Dom gets back. Which almost happens.
If you like spooky, nail-biting adventure, grab The Melting. You will be glad you did.
An honest criticism for the author: this has nothing to do with your story, but the editing was pretty bad, lots of typos/grammatical mistakes in both books. I realize there's probably not a lot of money in selling Kindle books, but I think your books may get more notice from a big-time publisher if you paid for editing. I have to write a lot for my job, it can be hard to see you own mistakes. I always ask a coworker to read over anything important before I send it. I think you'd do your writing career a huge favor with a second set of eyes proof reading, even just a friend doing so to catch the obvious mistakes you didn't notice.
That said, thanks for an enjoyable story and best of luck with future endeavors!

With so many Z-novels around, it's often difficult to find one that is unique and gripping. Both They came with the Snow and the Melting do this and my only disappointment came when I finished the books.
