Summary

This is how the world ends: with a single snowflake.  

After a tragic accident at work, all Grady Miller wanted was an escape. He finds it months later with two of his closest friends. Together, the three of them travel south to Prism Lake for the upcoming holiday, where they plan on spending the sunny weekend drinking, grilling, and relaxing.  

But when a series of monstrous blizzards cover the Eastern United States in feet of snow, knocking out communications and making the roads impossible to drive on, they realize their weekend of fun could turn into a lifetime of survival.  

Because there's something out there besides the cold....

Something sinister....

13:41. How long I lasted before I couldn't take it anymore. Story dragging and narrator unengaging.

GREAT story! apocalypse, wraiths, blizzards oh my

I was pleasantly surprised. So much so that I stopped half way through to see if there was a part 2. I finished BOTH in 2 days. I'm eagerly awaiting part 3 and will look for other books by the author. Three late twenties friends go to their childhood vacation cabin for the fourth of July. They meet a nice neighboring family & celebrate with great drinks & smores. At 2am, Grady, our protagonist is awoken by his two friends telling him it is snowing. In Ohio in July. He finally gets out of bed and it's true. I won't give anything away but there's no explanation to why it's snowing, all electricity is cut off, "something" comes out at night and the sun rarely makes an appearance. Shadows lurk in the dark calling to our cast. They appear as their fears or regrets. On top of that people become "possessed" & turn into rage filled lunatics if touched by the "shadows" that Grady calls "wraiths" Food is running out, no cars can drive in the 3' of snow and the sun isn't out longer than 30 mins at a time making scavenging near impossible! Use a credit. you won't regret it if you like horror/post apocalyptic fiction with a touch of monsters!!!

Not a great ending

This book should have a better ending - needed something more to complete the story disappointing

Great Apocalyptic Story with a Touch of Creepiness

Really enjoyed this book. Flint Maxwell gives his readers enough background story on the characters to get to know them but doesn't dwell on it for so long that you get bored. He jumps into the meat of the story quickly and that gets you hooked. The characters are rich as are their interactions and dialogue. The scenery descriptions are done very well. I feel like I've been to Prism Lake and that I woke up to snow in July. Matt Godfrey does a fantastic job narrating the book, giving not just voice to all the characters but bringing them to life so you feel as if you're listening to someone retell something they actually experienced. He uses his voice as a tool to set each scene and add fullness to the story and its people. Already pre-ordered the Kindle and Audible versions of the second book in the series. Truly enjoyable.

I tried.

This really seems like it was written by a High School or College student. I couldn't get beyond the introductions. If you want to read something predictable, written in a very clumsy first person. Go for it. We get it, you like Stephen King.

There's something in the snow...

This book is excellent, exactly what I always look for but very hard to find - creepy and down right scary at times. It starts off a little slow introducing the characters, but I'm really glad the author did this because we become fond of the guys in the story and more than that it puts you in a nice happy place, just before everything goes to hell. This book is not predictable in the slightest. We have all sorts of horror elements coming together in a single situation. It was a delightful read and one I'll listen to again and again. The narrator was also a perfect choice. Perfect delivery.

Different apocalyptic tale

Great start to a series. It’s not the zombie or virus EOTW tale, which is usually my preference, but its written well. Has interesting main character, although can be a bit predictable at times. Will continue this series!
