Book Review: The Cold Room (The Balancovat Series Book 1) by Carolyn Filetti

The Cold Room Cover

Blurb: Recreating yourself in a new place can be a dream come true for most teens. Doing so out of duty to a dying race is a different story. Wren Hemsky would have been satisfied just being her shy, reclusive self when her father moved their family to a small farm town in the Midwest. The inherited farm holds dark family secrets that awakens a new reality in the seventeen year-old Wren. Her yearning for truth is hindered when she is pursued by a bully, who is obsessed with her. To add to her new complicated life, she must balance her brother, David, who is normally controlled by medication. The pressure intensifies as Wren falls for the egocentric and reclusive Arden, who may hold the answers she is looking for. Arden is dark and unlike normal humans, causing Wren’s quiet life to come to a screeching halt. Wren must battle a tyrant while falling for a strange boy, forgive and seek help from an angry brother all while uncovering a secret that may prove her the most monstrous of them all.

Review: Reading The Cold Room by Carolyn Filetti was an unusual experience for me. I haven’t read any fantasy since David and I decided to re-read The Chronicles of Narnia (more…)
