Boorman Nothing but danger the other side of the Wall and the community must prepare for the freezing winterkill that comes every yearBut Emmeline struggles to be obedient under the Counc. They are isolatedbut not aloneWinterkill is basically a rip off of the movie The Village Let me tell you the resemblancesBoth the book and the movie were set in a walled villagetown in middle of nowhere surrounded by deep forest where mysterious creature roams the beings are called here malmaci and in The Village they were called Those We Don t Speak Of Aside from the similarities with the movie the Setting is vague A very little history behind how the village came to existence is given Two types of groups were told to survive from the old world the people who speak French and those who speak English which led me to uestion what happened to other democracies How the Old World Kingdom world as we know it now met its endSadly no explanation Speaking of the Characters Emmeline our protagonist is a Strained who bears the shame of her grandmother s insubordination She is also a cripple pushed on an axe at a very young age by the villagers and broke her leg Although given her situation I found her frail traits uite believable but at times her reticence to speak up and wussy nature annoyed me I liked her eagerness for knowledge and curiosity to discover the mystery outside village walls Which ultimately led to her family history and secrets she never thought could existAdding further to the list of similarities with The Village a triangle between the MC Kane the boy she had a crush on and the village leader is introduced in the book However the Romance between Em and Kane were sweet and well developed Kane was understanding and gorgeous and despite he lied to Em given the reason behind it he was easily forgivable Gabriel the mysterious young village most women swoon over suddenly began showing interest in Em for no apparent reason I have to admit I was misled by his sincerity and his impression of love That loving someone doesn t mean the person you love will love you back I liked the way Gabriel s character was crafted layer by layer complex and psychotic For the Writing had it been any other story I would ve called the writing choppy though not as choppy as Half Bad but considering the MC is illiterate and so are most of the people in the town her voice felt absolutely suitable for her persona somehow reminded me of Willo from After the SnowAs final verdict I d say Readers give this book a chance If not anything I found it engaging Though I already guessed the big reveal from a half book away I kept reading and honestly one or two twist near the end I didn t see coming Trust me despite its flaws and holes Winterkill is truly not a terrible book by any means

Boorman Where Emmeline lives you cannot love and you cannot leaveThe Council's rules are strict but they're for the good of the settlement in which Emmeline lives Everyone knows there is. Oh where to startAfter reading about 20 pages of this book I was ready to throw in the towel I made myself read up to page 100 to see if things changed and the story did improve but not enough for me to rate this book any higher than one starI found the writing distracting The book is set in a village where people speak English or French Since I live in a city where people speak both languages and sometimes do not notice which language they are speaking I found that the way this book was written did not seem realistic I felt as if I were reading a covert French lesson rather than a story It also felt repetitive since I did understand the French Then there are other language issues Mayhap Using the word mayhap would make sense had I a better idea of the time frame of this book Also there were some inconsistencies as to how people were addressed Brother Sister Soeur etc Soeur Manon because she spoke mostly French but Brother Andre also spoke mostly French and he was addressed as Brother Then there s the detail as to the kind of berries Come on Saskatoon berries So I Googled them and found out that they are similar to blueberries and they grow in the prairies In the US they are referred to June Berries because let s just say it s easier to say and spell June I had a feeling that I read this book before It reminded me of the movie The Village I also had difficulty relating to any of the characters Emmeline is stained meaning that she is shunned for the sins of her family yet she really isn t ostracized or anything Again that felt kind of wishy washyFor the record I did finish the book though it was a slog Thank you to NetGalley and Amulet Books for a review copy of this book
