4 out of 5 stars
If you know anything about David Koepp or have read up on him. Koepp is an American screenwriter and director. Best known for his work on Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Panic Room and War of Worlds.
I could completely see Cold Storage being adapted into film. It absolutely read like a movie setting.
You start off with your flash back into 1987, where you are introduced to the organism and find out just how much destruction it can cause.
Flash forward into the modern day and in comes new characters that are completely in the dark and have no idea what exactly is in the sub-level of this building or the awful things that happened decades ago.
Until the story takes a harsh turn, bringing the experienced together with the inexperienced in a rush to save humanity.
The reason for me knocking 1 star from my rating was how slow the plot and character growth was, at least after the original impressive flash back in 1987. The next few chapters seem to drag on a bit. Also some content in my opinion felt like unneeded story filler. But I tell you, once you get through the slow gap in the first half of the book it really starts picking up.
Cold Storage becomes chilling. I felt I couldn’t put the book down until I knew exactly what happened and if the trio was successful.
The outcome was exactly what I was hoping for and that is not always the case when reading a book. This was very refreshing.
If you are a lover of scifi, horror, mystery, thriller. I think you will devour Cold Storage.
I would love to see Cold Storage on the big screen one day.
Thank you so much to HarperCollins Canada for sending this arc my way for review.
Release date: September 3, 2019
Only a couple weeks away! Mark your calendars. You don’t want to miss out on Cold Storage.
And of course thank you all for reading.
