For decades, Earth has been ravaged by unpredictable weather which began to cause crops to fail. Most of the planet’s food sources have deteriorated. Dr. Clayton Rudo has proclaimed he has the means to save the soil. He has created a weather machine to regulate and help replenish. But Ember knew the truth. He didn’t want to save the planet. He wanted to control it. Amethyst destroyed the machine, but was placed in stasis. Two years later, Rudo recreated the device and has frozen Washington, DC and the west coast of the United States.
General Tom Blanchard brought Amethyst out of stasis to work with an elite Air Force team, led by Major Liam Ross. Tensions between Ember and Liam rise as they butt heads. Can they work together before Earth is completely under ice?
The story grabs you from the first and never lets you go. I have to be careful about sharing my feelings because I don’t want to ruin all the surprises.
The story grabs you from the first and never lets you go. Let me just say, the story is very well written, there are surprises from the very first, and they just keep coming and lots of action that will have you on the edge of your chair.
The evil guy may have pretended to be a well-meaning scientist, but he is super bad and most formidable. You’ll love the kick ass strong heroine who leads the squad that will save the world and when she likes a guy, she doesn’t hide her feelings. I enjoyed the romantic moments. She has serious issues with her father—you’ll understand when you read the book.
One big warning, however: this fabulous story comes with very steep cliff hanger. I prefer a gentler stop. Due to the mental disturbances I endured when the story ended so abruptly, I’m deducting a half a point and give it 4.5, which I’m rounding up because it’s such a fabulous story.
Rest assured, I will be reading the next book!
