"Completely and utterly fabulous, this thrilling novel thrusts you into the near future with chilling yet vibrant intensity."
With a unique premise, viciously stunning location, all-consuming plot, and captivating characters, this is an unforgettable novel. With no notice, humanity has to leave everything they know and head for Antarctica, with a thirty day deadline, those that arrive in time then face a desperate battle for survival. Two main timelines create a vivid jagged edge, the first hit me in my stomach it is so immediately visual and emotional. I just had to continue reading, and was exceedingly put out when I had to leave Cold People even a second. Tom Rob Smith makes this section of the book feel as though it could happen tomorrow, I was part of the surge desperately heading towards Antarctica, fully of aware of my own mortality. The main characters feel touchable, relatable, magnificently alive with dynamic energy. Antarctica came as an electrifying shock, I felt the stark differences through to my core, the ice and the future hammering into the fight to rebuild humanity. I hope there is more to come in this tale, there should be! If you love speculative, dystopian, science fiction, or just fiercely breathtaking tales you can easily fall into, then I can highly recommend this novel to you. Powerful and piercing, Cold People throws imagination into the icy wilds of tomorrow with perfectly intense storytelling.
