Winter, White and Wicked by Shannon Dittemore


She's lost the girl she was best friends with and decides to go after her.  She can take the big truck and haul a load on her trip.  But it's not going to be that easy...

Abrams Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can get a copy now.

This is a fantasy novel that has horrors thrown in to keep your attention.  There are monsters that you can only kill by blowing their head off.  Some of the main characters have special powers.  The woman driver has a special relationship with the spirit of winter.  They start out as friends but as the trip goes on Winter starts to misbehave.

Sylvi finds she has a power she didn't know she had as she saves one of her passenger's lives.  She really doesn't want to find out about her heritage.  She knows she was an orphan until the tavern owner took her in.  Like it or not, she's going to learn about before the book ends.

They are on a road trip that is dangerous and destructive.  Not all of them make it to the end.  

It's an unusual story with lots of secrets and the use of magic and drugs to fight against winter's attacks, the monsters and even the rangers.  

You won't get bored reading this one!
