No one inside the snow globe knows that Morozoko Industries is controlling their weather, testing them to form a stronger race that can survive the fall out from the bombs being dropped in the outside world—all they know is that they must survive the harsh Winter that lasts a month and use the few days of Spring, Summer, and Fall to gather enough supplies to survive.
When the seasons start shifting, Genesis and her boyfriend, Jack, know something is going on. As their team begins to find technology that they don’t have access to inside their snow globe of a world, it begins to look more and more like one of their own is working against them.
Genesis soon discovers Morozoko Industries is to blame, but when a foreign enemy tries to destroy their weather program to make sure their destructive life-altering bombs succeed in destroying the outside world, their only chance is to shut down the machine that is spinning out of control and save the lives of everyone inside the bunker--at any cost.
"His name was Jack and his love for me was like a flood, now frozen over." (K.R. Robinson, 1).
The Revolution of Jack Frost is a very interesting novel about a world where Summer is a week, Winter is a month, and their whole community jokes about living in a snow globe, not realizing just how true that may be.
It opens with the main characters Genesis and Jack going through the last couple of days of Winter with their community. We get to learn how they work before the inciting incident.
The story was incredibly captivating and innovative. The premise of the seasons being different lengths and how they worked around that was something I haven't read before. One thing I had a problem with was that we got thrown into the book with minimal information, and it never gets clarified. You kind of just deduce certain things and they get confirmed much later in the story.
The characters were a bit lackluster for me. Genesis was just okay, and Jack's personality flip flopped all over the place. I felt like that made it difficult for me to really enjoy the story as the characters took me out of it most of the time. There was just something off with how they interacted with each other.
I loved that rather than tell a variation of the story of Jack Frost, Robinson showed us her interpretation of how Jack Frost came to be. The book definitely gave me a dystopian vibe that I did not expect when I first started reading. It was a pleasant change to the Jack Frost story.
I enjoyed reading this novel. While some parts were maybe a bit unnecessary and the characters were lackluster, the plot itself was extremely entertaining and vastly different than what I was expecting, which is a good thing. I would give this novel 4 out of 5 stars.
