By Matthew Cash
Little Stevie just wanted a friend to help make snowmen, snow angels, and have fun and games with. Ever unpopular and often lonely, a lot of experiences most children his age have passed him by. A heavy winter brings the town to a standstill, and he seeks the opportunity to play in the snow.
But something else is already playing in the snow, and the game it is playing is deadly enough to destroy Mankind.
Frosty by Matthew Cash is a well-paced, disturbing read that is very hard to put down. Cash’s characters tug at your heart while the maddening suspense crushes your mind.
This engaging story is interesting, compelling, and well-presented. Cash leaves just enough to the imagination to keep the reader on their toes and create brutal tension and build-up. While it is not Extreme Horror, Frosty does contain some disturbing content and gruesome sequences. With the addition of Psychological Horror aspects, this story crosses subgenre boundaries without apology. To say more about that would risk giving something away, and I abhor spoilers in reviews.
Of course, a definitive part of a well-executed story is excellent characterization. Cash delivers. These engaging characters are rich with personality and evoke both sympathy and empathy. Well, for the most part. Some characters evoke anger and disgust, naturally, but you get the idea.
This is a story that you will love and hate and love to hate because it will grab you by your fears and stab you in the feels.
