This is a tense, psychological drama set in the snowy wilderness of the Arctic Circle, where a boy confronts a stranger come to take revenge on his dead father.
Set in 1899.
The writing is beautiful and even though the story takes place within a day, it was exciting and I couldn’t stop reading.
It says something about Marcus Sedgewick for being able to write a story like this, which is that he is a skilled storyteller.
This story is about a young boy and his fathers’ Revolver. The knowledge the young boy’s father had on the revolver was impressive, and he taught his son this information.
This story is also about choices or decisions we make and how that’ll affect our lives. About knowing how to use a weapon is just as important as knowing the mechanics of the weapon.
This story is suspenseful, chilling and brilliant.
