Two bodies, two coins, two weeks and so the story unfolds I loved Dark Pines and couldn t wait to read this one and follow Tuva Moodyson s journey Tuva is now preparing to leave Garvrik, which I for one, am sorry about I love shivering when I read about this cold, isolated place where when you open a window, freezing air pours in like seawater and where everything s white It looks like God poured a bottle of correction fluid over the whole town, and who the hell could blame him The author s descriptive writing is so good you are transported to Garvrik and chilled to the bone as you read.Before Tuva leaves she has one last job to do, research on the liquorice factory and the secretive family who live there.The author s last book left me with strange images of trolls and this book has left me with images of snow skulls Very creepy and I loved the information about liquorice.Tuva is a great character, very well drawn, very real and I hope she continues to feature in future books I so wanted her to find love, especially when we find out what s going on in Tuva s head, for example When she stands in front of me my head turns into a soft clump of overcooked pasta or we re slowly tangling together like climbing roses The writing throughout this book is beautiful, descriptive, excellent and this, together with the fantastic array of characters, makes this an outstanding book. I was one of many readers who loved the danger, the atmosphere, the whole claustrophobic and inward looking setting of Dark Pines Red Snow didn t grab me so much, though the setting was the same More so, perhaps, as it took place in February of the worst year for a long time Again, Tuva, the young journalist, is involved in finding out what happened when a factory owner fell from his building s tall chimney.It was too long and repetitive to grip me It could usefully have lost 20% of its length to pick up its pace and interest I found the writing rather clunky It pulls you out of the story when you find yourself counting the number of times the author said and in that sentence Honestly, I felt it had been hurriedly edited to rush it out in the wake of the first book s success Things like artic conditions should have been picked up I can t believe nobody queried lapwings in a list of dead or hibernating insects Lacewings, yes.I plodded through it like Tuva through deep snow I wanted to love it and may well be in a minority in not doing so, but I m glad to move on
