Seas of Snow Revisited



Hi Everyone,

Today I'm back revisiting a book I reviewed back in May last year and I've raved about on social media steadily since, that book would be Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings.



For those of you in the know, Kerensa is a literary genius, and yes I know I have fangirled hard over Kerensa in the past year but her novel Seas of Snow really touched me on a level I've not felt before, yes I've spoken about stories that have blown me away in the past and I've certainly read some fantastic books in my time but there's something about Seas of Snow that got deep under my skin and stayed there.

One of the main drawing points of the novel for me is the enthralling battle between good and evil and the obvious knowledge of the inner workings of the human mind that Kerensa Jennings provides us which makes for a fascinating read.

I've said before that this is a novel that is genre defying, I couldn't possibly put it into a category if I tried but I can tell you that this is a novel that can at once uplift you only to drop you deep into the darkest parts of despair moments later, I consider Seas of Snow to be more than a story to be told, I see it as a work of art that evokes a strong emotional response and I for one will never forget the feelings I had whilst devouring each word presented to me within the pages of this novel.

If you're interested in picking up Seas of Snow, the paperback has just been released on amazon this month, be warned though, there's a strong trigger warning for child abuse here but if you're able to handle a gritter read then this might be the one for you.

For an in depth review of the actual story you can read my original review that I posted last year here and if you've read Seas of Snow I'd be interested to hear your take on it.

You can follow Kerensa Jennings on twitter (@Zinca) too.

  5. Oh wow! This sounds really good. Usually I go for books that are a mix of sci-fi and horror (like stephen king) but this sounds really intriguing! Going to add it to my must-read list ... if I ever get the time now that my baby seems to be needing me 24/7 LOL.

  17. This seems like an interesting read! I love books that require you to think critically and challenge what you define as good and evil. It's something that many of us will say is objective, but at the same time, there are those who find it to be subjective. Thanks for sharing, babe, and I hope you have a great week!

  19. It sounded like a good book, but I don't think I could read a book with such a topic in it. I'm way too emotional after having kids, haha!

    Thanks for sharing anyway :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far. We have some cooler weather at last so it's starting to feel a little more like autumn :)
