Publisher's Summary

A historic snowstorm decimated an American Indian tribe in the 19th century. Thousands died, some ultimately eating their own in order to survive. Now the snowstorm has returned, and something sinister hides within it. Something detective Jacob Schmidt will witness firsthand.

    Story
    "It's Short! If You Blink, You Might Miss It!"


    I love supporting new authors, and narrators, but after visiting Kevin's website, I was pleasantly surprised to learn Kevin is actually a veteran author. I'm not a big horror fan; however, I love stories that have a paranormal twist, and that's what drew me to this story. It's only 32 minutes long, so I don't think it's fair to compare this one with a full length novel. With that being said, this story was the perfect length for an office visit I had today, and was able to listen in one sitting. Even though I was not able to form a connection with the characters, and wanted to learn more about them, I could tell they had a lot of potential. The plot was good, and moved at a really fast pace. (Don't be like me, and get distracted, you'll have to rewind.) What I enjoyed most was the plot twist towards the end, and how it leaves it. I can't give too many details, or I will give away the story. IMO, this would make an excellent full length novel.

    This is the first audio I listened to narrated by Fred, and I though he did a great job. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.

    "Short Form Horror"
    Any additional comments?

    Short form horror is a difficult medium to work with because scares can become cheap and characters can fall flat. This short story, however, had my interest from the start and ended up taking me for a fun ride. I'd recommend this lil' tale to any horror lovers with only half an hour to spare!

    Story
    "Too short, I want more!"

    This tale, while short, was still able to deliver a lot of personality and back story. There's no big mystery as to what it's about as the synopsis gives that away, but the WAY in which it is told is what makes this a great listen.

    Most of the story revolves around 2 law enforcement officers dealing with a sudden supernatural "situation". Because the text is so short, much of the back story had to be relayed by one character to the other. Thankfully, it wasn't ham-fisted, leaving the dialogue very natural and believable.

    That said, had the author lengthened this into a full-length novel, I think they would have had a hit on their hands. As it stands, it sounds like a (well-written) cliff-notes version of a great novel.

    As for the narrator, I felt he was a perfect fit and did an excellent job.

    It should be noted that I was provided this book, free of charge, in exchange for my unbiased review.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    Story
    "An Excellent Supernatural Thriller"

    Children of the Snow was a suspenseful, atmospheric listen. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I found myself interested in these characters as well as the setting. Jacob was the main character, then Jeff, then Dinah who really piqued my interest at the end. I do hope this is the beginning of a new series. Great work by Kevin Hopson.

    Fred Filbrich's performance was awesome. His voice added to the suspense. He was able to place urgency in the situation with his voice inflections. A perfect combination of author/reader.

    "Good Short Supernatural"

    I enjoyed this very short horror. It is about ancient native evil that returns and involves main character of Jacob Schmidt. But believe this may be a prelude to a series (hope so) I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!

    This quick story is entertaining and has you thinking. I enjoyed the plot and the legend that helps it along in this book. The author does a good job of moving the story along and keeping you interested. The narrator does a good job of bringing this world and its inhabitants to life.
