Review: Reversal by Jennifer Ellis
When the entire world comes to an end, you would think that finding yourself hunkered down in a well stocked polar research station would would be like winning the apocalyptic jackpot. Sasha Woods is stationed in just such a place and quickly finds out – it ain’t so.
Rogue Polar bears, manipulative demons, alternate realities, and the dark heart of man all conspire to see that Woods doesn’t live to see another penguin.
This is my first time reading a book by Jennifer Ellis, and I’m thoroughly impressed. She weaves a wonderfully paced thriller that is scientifically smart but also provides the shivering chills of a dark fantasy tale. Ellis does solid work in developing characters and keeping the reader guessing what might be waiting on the other side of the next snowbank. The book has a number of easter eggs that add layers of depth to the main story – be sure to look out for them!
Apocalypse Weird: Reversal is a great book whether you’re looking to further dive into the AW Multiverse or seeking an exhilarating but smart read that manages to give you the demonic creeps, but forces you to keep reading to find out what happens next.
Disclosure: I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I can’t wait to read what Ellis has prepared for next time.
