Publisher's Summary

They said it wouldn't happen.

Everything would be better.

They were wrong.

After a climate-change experiment goes terribly wrong, August Madison finds herself resurrected in a frozen wasteland.

With most of the world's population and food sources annihilated, depraved nomadic gangs patrol the lawless landscape as outlasters claw for survival.

Amid the chaos, Graysen Marx, iron-fisted leader of the domed settlement, Liberty, emerges from the catastrophic event with his own agenda.

When August crosses his path, he sees an opportunity he must exploit.

She sees an evil she must destroy.

very entertaining

This book has pretty much everything you can think of. I was really caught off guard by a few things, gross. lol Wouldn't have thought the author would go there but she did and wow. Narration was great, she did a fantastic job bringing everyone to life and giving them personality. This book is worth thrre time and money.

An inspired post-apocalyptic tale...

I found this to be a fast-paced, well-imagined, beautifully executed story about the possible devastating effects of tampering with climate change. Of course, the intentions of said tampering were good, hoping to avert the inevitable disaster resulting from global warming, but the intentions were not the problem. Mankind’s meddling serves to hasten rather than prevent disaster and the catastrophic consequences thrust the main character, August Madison, and the rest of humanity which managed to survive the initial calamity, into a frozen and desolate world where food, shelter, and survival are not to be taken for granted. I found the premise intriguing, the storyline captivating, and the characters likeable and believable. I chose to read along as I listened to the audio version of this story and was delighted with the wonderful narration provided by Jennifer Swanepoel. I believe enthusiasts of this genre will be very pleased with this selection whether they choose to read or to listen (or both). Enjoy!

While I did purchase a copy of the book, I was given a free review copy of the audiobook version at my request and have voluntarily left this honest and unbiased review.

If you find this review helpful, thank you for so indicating.

***Winter Is Coming!***Great Post-Apocalyptic Tale

Awesome new take on a post-apocalypse world! August Madison is a twenty-two year old college student on the day her father is to unveil his world changing new invention that has the potential to solve global warming. Something goes terribly awry though! The next thing she knows she awakes in a wasteland of ice and snow. Luckily she is found by some survivors that take her in to their small group. She soon discovers the cold is not the only thing to be concerned about. She learns that when the group found her she was dead, literally dead and its days after the catastrophe actually happened. She also will face gangs of raiders and a community called Liberty that promises sanctuary. Liberty is run by one of her fathers financial backers an infamous billionaire Greyson Marx. Something about Greyson and Liberty just does not seem right but it may soon be the groups only choice.

This book delivers action, adventure, as well as emotion and a bit of romance. I definitely think this is worth buying or using a credit on, and I'm excited for the story to continue in the next book.

Gripping survival story

I thoroughly enjoyed trying to puzzle out how the characters were going to make it through the book. I loved the Grayson Marx characters complexity, and that the hope for survival is in the hands of our heroine. August is inquisitive and develops nicely throughout the book. I liked that her story unfolds piece by piece and isn’t just thrown at you in the first chapter. We learn about her with her throughout the entire story. The action is intense! It reminded me a bit of a Mad Max feel mixed with the book of Eli, but I’m wary of comparing the two because there are a lot of differences in the plot and storyline. The novel also had some great themes about caring for the earth and humanity as a whole. If you enjoy action/dystopian writing then this is a great book for you. I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Another adaptation of.....

I really enjoyed this book. Strong woman lead but doesn't know it until the middle of the book. Not afraid to stand up against the oppressor. Like the way the end of the earth came about.
