i liked that this game tie-in could be seen as a stand alone, the characters were great and I really enjoyed reading this book.

What an interesting story/character! That’s the only thing I can remember about this one sadly. I know I enjoyed it while I was reading it, but I honestly cannot remember much else.

I think coming into this book I had the wrong idea, I thought anything that was going to also be a video game would be action packed and exciting, and I might have sabotaged myself before I even started it. Having high expectations didn't do this book any favours, and those expectations came from the description. 

About a humanoid creature made of snow and ice that controls the climate of the world, I say creature not knowing what else to say because to be honest, I couldn't picture the characters in this book. Not that it wasn't interesting, just the way it was written didn't completely suck me into the story and really imagine what was happening.

Though this book has an interesting looking cover, and the story is very unique, it wasn't for me. That being said, I could see this being something that maybe someone younger than me would like. Someone that doesn't care so much about really getting pulled into the story. I wanted to really get into it, but knew very quickly that it wasn't going to happen. I couldn't relate to any of he characters, and I didn't feel excited reading it, and that's just not something that's for me.

Thanks for reading!

A novel set in the universe of an upcoming game? Sign me up!

I've read quite a few novels and series depicting stories from the universes of various games, and although this wasn't the best of them it is definitely not the worst.

The blurb was interesting in that it seemed to depict an almost childish idea but without the phrasing that accompanies books for children.

The plot progression is well-paced and tense enough to keep one reading.

I think this can be improved in terms of description and character development. A lot of actions were being "told" instead of "shown" and the characters could have been a lot more well-rounded.

Overall, it has an interesting premise and I'm looking forward to playing the game once it is released.

Rating: 3/5 stars
