It’s freezing this winter. I don’t like it. The only solution is to read about people having an completely, utterly miserable time in the terrible cold. Come read with me.

The prologue is very fast paced. The main book, I skipped here and there. Something is going on Up North. Mysterious messages, delivered mysteriously. A not-by-the-book hero.
