Freezing Point – Grace Hamilton

Freezing Point is a moving story of survival, family, and friendship.


Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the earth’s axis has tilted and most parts of the world are submerged in snow. Business and shops are closed, and people are running out of food. Scavengers are on the hunt and people are seeking shelter and safety elsewhere. Nathan, a mechanic whose business has been affected by the tectonic shifts has to find a safe place from the unforgiving cold if he and his family have to survive.

His friend invites him to Detroit, with promises that it would be much better than New York, where Nathan lives. We follow him on his journey with his wife, his son, and his friend, Freeson. With enough food to survive and supplies to stay warm, he navigates the cold and harsh terrain, avoiding scavengers on the way. Enroute, he meets some interesting and quirky characters who are stranded and they all join him.
After a harrowing journey in subzero conditions, he arrives in Detroit, but Detroit is not what he thought it would be.

Freezing Point is an engaging dystopian book that gripped me from start to finish. The descriptions in this book were so vivid and realistic I felt as though I were living the scenes with the characters.

This book would make an excellent miniseries, and with realistic and believable characters and a cliffhanger, this would keep you entertained for hours. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
