This was my first book by Michael McBride and prompted me to buy more immediately. Snowblind is pretty much a perfect monster romp. Good characters that you root for. Good build up and suspense. Well written. Really, really (yes, really) nasty monsters and great ending. I am not alone in my opinion. This book was one of four works to win a Darkfuse Novella Reader's Choice award for 2012.
After thoroughly enjoying this book I bought the much darker and more serious Innocents Lost (review upcoming) as well as several others. McBride is now on my list of writers to follow and I placed quite a few of his books on my Amazon wish list.
Four and half stars. Highest recommendation.
