  • Gritty and realistic

    When the world as she knows it comes to an end with winters that stop even the hardiest of crops from growing, Wil must find a way to survive. Road out of Winter was a completely different read for me and an unexpected surprise. I enjoy the apocalypse and dystopian genres but these are usually virus and ‘zombie’ related. Road out of Winter took the really simple route on this – the world starts to become colder and locked in a never-ending winter but we are never really introduced to the reason why this has happened. The book is solely focused on Wil and her friends and their fight to survive. Wil is a really interesting character; she is young but very independent – her parents were weed growers and have abandoned her to start a new life. When the cold hits she realises the importance of friendships and survival. I really enjoyed how all of the characters in the book were well drawn out, although they were lacking in backstory. I didn’t really feel like it mattered too much and even the ones that were only introduced fleetingly left an impact on the reader and the story. The plot was well constructed, although I was worried it was going to end on a cliff hanger as we got closer and closer to the end with no resolution. I did really enjoy how it ended though and it felt like a self-contained story but the way is left open if Alison Stine wants to continue it in another book. There was a lot of tension and action but this was balanced with heart felt moments. The whole thing also felt very gritty and realistic. Overall, Road out of Winter was an interesting take on the dystopian genre and was well crafted with great characters and an action packed plot. Thank you to NetGalley & Harlequin – Mira for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Climate change, survival of a young girl with particular skill at nurturing and growing plants. Very good book about domestic relationships, misogyny, and human nature. Excellent book.
