Publisher's Summary

After losing everything in a bitter divorce, Peter retreats to a secluded cabin in the Catskill Mountains, where he is trapped by earthquakes and months of unrelenting snow. Just as he is convinced he is the only survivor of a mysterious global cataclysm, he meets a woman seeking refuge from a past she won't reveal. 

Her arrival rescues him from unbearable isolation, but when the snow finally stops and her secret catches up with her, Peter is forced to choose between saving her life and following his conscience. 

His decision sends them running for their lives and searching for answers as the melting snow reveals a world unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Together they will learn not only what caused the greatest disaster in the planet's history, but that the worst may be yet to come.

Loved it!

Excellent post-apocalyptic book! Something happened that caused a global catastrophe. There were earthquakes, months of snowfall, and severe flooding with sea levels rising over 400 feet! This may sound like something similar to Water World, but I assure you, it isn't. I'd definitely like to check out more by this author. Excellent narration by John McLoughlin!

hard to put down

i already read this on kindle a while back and loved it, but it's better now cuz i don't have to look at words..
nice post-apoc fiction with a scenario that i don't think i've seen the genre touch on all that often(nice break from the nukes and zombie outbreaks). plenty of action, romance, heroics, tension and all that keeps a good story going, while still keeping it down to earth at a halfway mellow pace, which helps extraordinary situations stay believable and gives a chance to relate to the characters.

i hadn't heard a John McLoughlin narration before this, but i think he's made it into my very short list of narrators i enjoy listening to. good performance and sound.

Excellent Listen!

This book was outstanding. I really loved the spin the author used in how the world was destroyed. This twist was so different than anything I have read before this. There was something always going on. The narrarator was awsome and just brought everything to life. I felt likeI could see and feel exactly what he was reading. lots if depth and emotion used. Great book to add to your collection.

Time to live this awesome listen .

This audio storie provided a great surprise of a great listen . First time I listened to the author , who writes fantastic and the narrator, John , who’s voice was strong , clear and did the characters fantastic. .

What happens when your stuck in the mountains for a long time and with no where to go .

Hero is Peter Peter has some personal setback . He is also suffering from a divorce. . He feels useless
Peter tried for the Navy seals but wS turn away .
Peter has been in the mountains for a long time . He notices that there is no one around for a very long time . He has to learn to survive without every day necessary. Back to nature.
A strange women shows up half dead , but Peter nurtured her back to heath .
He doesn’t know that earthquakes and total waves eliminate everything. When more people show up that’s when Peter leaves the truth .
Grab it and see how Peter handles the catastrophe.

John was a great narrator. His voice was strong , clear

engaging

engaging story. reminded me a bit of Brian Keene without the horror. Great job. My only irritation was the obligatory quote at the start of each chapter.

An exciting read

Imagine it snowing and not stopping, this is how the book starts. The main character does not know why it is snowing, but he is trying to survive. Enter the girl. When the girl enters eveyrthing changes, but not all for the better. The story goes on to tell of their adventures, and describes what the think happened to start the disaster.

Over all this was a good book. Some of the scenes makes little sense but the are short and far between. Overall this was a great advenure tale.

A Great Read

I loved Michael Edelson's book Seed and was thrilled to finally see this book arrive on Audible as well. It's a fun read that moves along at a pretty good clip without a lot of moralizing and end of days talk. I'm sure i will listen to this every year or so and I'm grateful to have Ice Fall (and Seed) in my library forever.

Write more books in this genre Mr. Edelson!

Good idea, poorly delivered

I am a fan of this kind is genre and have read many.
This is a good idea, “overly” written
The narration does it no favours
