A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix a the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn’t known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
The year is 2525.
Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic novel is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.
Written in three installments, this is the breathtaking and sensual story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time. (From Goodreads)
I give this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
Another stunning cover, another exciting read, they just keep getting better and better. I am so excited to see how this story ends, and I love that it is written in installments. The hype that it builds is fascinating, and definitely draws you in! I love these characters! I can’t say much as it’s part two of the series, and I do not want to spoil it for anyone, but this book has definitely gotten its hold on me! You guys need to check out these books. They are very short, both so far under 200 pages, and they read like a breeze!
