My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was my first book by the author Brenda Novak. The premise of the story was very interesting, the opening of a new psychiatric facility in a remote Alaskan town. This short story is a prequel to Whiteout and serves to introduce the lead characters. And there’s the problem. It does indeed introduce the characters but at the expense of plot. The story is clearly a prequel and to be honest I wonder if it was necessary. However, it did keep me reading, but I am much more interested in the forthcoming novel.
