I received a free e-book copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
White Frost lives in a world of darkness, made and watched over by the Creators. Where the Chosen Ones take only what can be used and what won’t be missed. White’s cousin brings her strange collections of words from the Unknown. However, when tragedy strikes White must find out what lies behind Zone Eleven.
This was a nice, quick read from C.E. Wilson about a girl who wants to have more knowledge about what lies in the Unknown. I liked how the plot unfolded and how the relationship between White and Kes unfolded.
“This is a bed” he said, kicking the wooden surface with the heel of his boot, “but what if someone told you all your life that this was actually a basket? Wouldn’t you think it was a basket?”
I though that White was a pretty good character, she questioned everything and went on a great journey. I also liked how some of the other characters were portrayed especially Kes and Salt.
I loved that no matter how many questions I came across they were all answered slowly and gradually adding to the suspense and building up the uniqueness of the plot well. However, I felt that President Copper should have been more prominent in the book but I do have a feeling that she may be in book two.
