Cold Faith is full of twists and turns. I was sucked in and couldn’t put it down until finished. I really hope there is a sequel. I especially like the surprises before Rab turns back and was on the edge of my seat by the end of the book. This can’t be the end.
Oh, slow down….
Rab takes off from his village to look for something better for his people. He is forced to take three children with him, Fin and his little brother Stitch and Gift. He’d rather have gone alone but Blaze, who had given him the children, reminded him that the village was dying and he may be the only chance any of the children have of making it.
The trip is full of danger. Little food, less wood for heat, and brown snow and freezing weather are some of the dangers they face. Stitch is too young to walk the long distances and Rab is forced to carry him for much of their journey. Stitch is hurt in an accident, suddenly there is a woman, who against her better judgement, offers to help Stitch but tells everyone else they can only stay in her village until he is better.
A lot of action up to this point, but it only gets better from here!
If a reader is looking for a book with an apocalyptic feel, twists, turns, danger, the struggle between life and death- this is the book to read. As previously noted, I really hope there is a sequel. I have to know what happens to those left behind! Definitely five stars!
I was given the opportunity to read Cold Faith by Shaune Lafferty Webb- by NetGalley.
