    Post apocalyptic yet hopeful

    I would rate this 4 stars. This is a post-apocalyptic short novella set in the future near Indianapolis. It's told from Finn's POV and starts with him trying to find medicine at the hospital for his sister Siobhan. He meets Spencer, who rescues him from looters and gives him shelter during a storm. Established trust goes a long way in helping them grow closer in the trying circumstances, so although it's within a quick timeframe, it seems very natural that they develop feelings so quickly. In a world like this you have to hang on to what you want and the goodness you find without worrying about the rest. People are mostly feral in trying to survive the nuclear winter. Siobhan had health issues even before, and with medicines rare, her future looks short. I took the title to mean not just the weather, but that part of your humanity, your heart, that you have to freeze to survive. Just when it looks like things are looking up, everything goes wrong. Finn finds the bravery he needs to fight for his future. On the one hand this was scary and gloomy; on the other hand is was hopeful. Even though everything is stilled down to survival mode, the author shows us the difference between surviving and living.

    A wonderful post-apocalyptic adventure romance!

    I’m going to start off this week’s review with a holy shmoly! I went into Frost by Isabelle Adler—and published by NineStar Press—completely blind, which isn’t something I make a habit of, but something I’m learning can be very, very fun. This was an amazing novella that dove into a post-apocalyptic space with such gorgeous world building and flawless character development that I was near-to-drooling by the time I finished. My readerly bum was on the edge of my seat and my nails were gnawed to nubs. There is such beautiful tension and organic conflict stemming from the harrowing world our main characters find themselves living within. I got so completely sucked into this story I skipped a meal and went on to have nightmares about the vivid hellscape Ms. Adler plops her characters into. But don’t fret, my lovelies. This is a romance at its core, and despite the challenges and conflicts our heroes face, there is a very satisfying HEA. One you won’t entirely see coming, but isn’t that the best kind?! I would recommend this book to any gay romance reader, but especially those who enjoy phenomenal world building and realistic conflicts mixed with just the right amount of adventure.

    Frost

    an ice age has settled over earth and the people who have survived it must scavenge for everything. food, shelter, medicine...nothing is certain in frost. when spencer saves finn from a life-threatening situation, they form a friendship that is forged in hardship. there are hints of attraction, but finn is afraid to explore things further, especially since he needs to get back to his ailing sister. if anything happens to her while he was off enjoying himself, he wouldn't be able to live with the guilt. never mind that the human connection, the burgeoning companionship is exactly what he needs. but life is too fragile, too unpredictable to waste time. as the novella ends there may or may not be hope for the world after an environmental collapse, but at the very least you know that if you find love and happiness you might as well hold on to it. **frost will publish on march 4, 2019. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgally/ninestar press in exchange for my honest review.

    Loved this! Wish it was longer!

    Okay, let’s get this out-of-the-way – this is a novella! And my one complaint about it is that I can’t believe it’s not a novel! Sometimes, I can read an entire book and not feel any great connection with the characters. That is not true of this short work by Isabelle Adler. This story is set in a post-apocalyptic type of world, basically a nuclear winter. The reader is introduced to Finn, a young man who is hunting for medication for his sister at an abandoned and run-down hospital. He encounters a gang of scavengers who grab him and if it weren’t for the intervention of a stranger with a shot-gun… Finn would probably be dead. Spencer is the name of the bearded man who saved Finn’s life. Finn is surprised by the intervention…then again he’s surprised when he is invited to stay at Spencer’s home to ride out a storm. It’s clear that living in the wasted world has been hard on Finn. He’s almost heartbreakingly desperate to continue his fragile friendship with Spencer while at the same time convinced that it can’t be real. The friendship grows into something more…and just as Finn is beginning to think that there may just be a little joy left in his life, Spencer disappears. Adler does a fantastic job of fleshing out the feelings of the characters even in the short eighty-two pages of the novella. The state of the world is bleak, but there’s a spark of hope in Finn and he sets out to find Spencer. I believed in Finn! No spoilers here! Pick this novella up!
