The Revolution of Jack Frost

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.

I received this eARC from Bleeding Ink Publishing on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way.

You know those books that are so generic that it's clear the author just wanted to have a book written but didn't care what it was about as long as it sold? Well, this is the opposite. It's an author who really wanted to tell a story but had no idea how to actually write a book.

Y'all this book is so bad I can't believe I wasted a full day on it. Also this is a long roast and I'm glad it's out of my system.

This is easily the worst book I've read all year. Yes it was worse than Catwoman and I didn't think anything could be as worse as Catwoman. I requested this from Netgalley solely on the fact that it had Jack Frost in the title, and then the premise sounded nice as well. It sounded really YA-ish if you know what I mean, along the lines of a company is trying to ruin

I have to be honest and say that as soon as I saw Jack Frost in the title I was inmediately drown to it and I didn't care about anything else 😂. Although it wasn't my favorite, I quite enjoyed it.

I think what I loved the most was the relationships, not only romantic ones but also the friendships. I don't remember loving characters as soon as I loved these ones 😍.


At the beginning my favorite was Jack even though at the same time I thought I couldn't trust him, he is just so sweet with

Yeahnah, I must confess my self disappointed in this book :(

I was ready for a fantasy Jack Frost story retelling, but turns out it's kinda more like a Maze Runner ripoff?? In the dystopian genre??


Also, there is a Jack in this story, but I feel like the Frost bit is kinda hmmmmmmmmmm

The romance was sweet... and so sO SO cringyyyyyyyyyyy
But I mean... At lease there was no love triangle  \_(ツ)_/

And the main character was BLANDDDDDD

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!

I'm going to admit, at first with this book I was rolling my eyes at the cheesy romance and waiting for it to pick up, but when it finally did, I found myself really enjoying it! I actually really liked the romantic message; the ability to love someone but not agree with what they are doing, or be able to support it. Sometimes you have to let love go and see what happens, and I did like this difference. There were a few pl

I saw the word Jack Frost in the title and I immediately know I want to read this book. The book have a lot of good ideas, the whole climate change influenced dystopian world + manipulated test subject + weather machine, but I feel that the beginning lacks a lot of world building and the characters are just... Meh.

I was confused about a lot of things in this book, the author did try to explain a lot of things throughout the story but it just felt flat and confusing and honestly the plot was rea

Since 2012, when Rise of the Guardians were made, Jack Frost is a known character. One of my beloved character, to be true, so when I found this book, I knew that I need this kind of retelling. But, to be honest, I'm truly disappointed.

At first it looked great, but it's just another story similar to The Maze Runner, with the difference this is without any logic. The characters are living in a snow globe where weather's changing however it wants. The winter lasts as the longest, so they need to h

First of all, the cover's gorgeous.
Believe me, I've tried to get past page 68 pages. I even took a break from the book, thinking it was me. It's the writing and the main characters really annoyed me especially Genesis. I could not connect with the characters. I mean with the sentence, "She put on a soft smile for him." This is a girl who crushes after a guy. Sorry she would've not have to make an effort to smile softly for a guy if there's such a thing. Just not realistic. The writing felt forc

I don’t know what I was expecting from this, but it definitely took me by surprise. I went straight into this without refreshing my memory of what it was about, and so given the title, I was expecting some sort of magical element to this. I quickly realised that this wasn’t going to be the case

This book provoked mixed feelings from me, some parts were exceptionally bad and other parts were really gripping? A clumsy execution to what is otherwise a really intriguing story premise.

In the Snow Globe, as Jack calls it, the seasons aren't what you would expect. Harsh Winter's last for a month, whilst instantaneous Spring and Summer's last for a week. The unusual weather climate is enemy number one for the people who live in the bunker, and when it starts to get weirder, Gen and Jack want t

Thank you Netgalley for an arc of The Revolution of Jack Frost for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Initially, I was going to wait to review the book closer to the publishing date, BUT, The Revolution of Jack Frost proved to be cliched af! I’m disappointed in it. Here’s why:

I made predictions about the story and its progression as I began the book…I DID NOT THINK THAT MY PREDICTIONS WOULD COME TRUE…

♦ Dystopian World ✔

♦ Lack of World Building ✔

♦ One dimensional protagonist ✔

♦ No buildup

Ridiculous and predictable. Boring with terrible dialogue and pda that actually made me gag. Author couldn’t decide if she was writing a cheesy romance, an action adventure with really bad scientific explanations, a survival story or crappy dystopia. Just awful. Had to read it to professionally review it. This is going to be a tough review to write.

He was a force of nature. He could warm your soul like the sun and then bury you in ice the next second. He was more destructive than any other universal element or could ever be. It was his way, to be like a hurricane crashing upon the shores, or lightning splintering everything in its path. He was a force. But he was my force. And in the end, it didn’t matter, because he disappeared, just like the weather always does. Here for one brief moment and gone the next. His name was Jack and his love

Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for an arc of this book. This novel had so much potential and it was wasted. This book was just okay because the writing was choppy. I felt the author could have done better on world building and character descriptions. I had no clue what the author was imagining when she created thr character Genesis, because almost no description of her appearance was fiven until almost the end of the book.

As a disclaimer, I did not finish this book so my review is based on the seven chapters that I did read.

When I first saw this book I was drawn in by the mention of Jack Frost. The synopsis promised me this high thrill, fast-paced action storyline. I was excited to start reading and for the first five pages, the book progressed well but then it all started to slide downhill.

This didn’t feel like a revised novel ready to be published. It felt like a first draft. There are a lot of technical errors

Thank you NetGalley for providing a copy of The Revolution of Jack Frost for me to review!

You know when you read a premise pre-release and your hopes build and you see the cover and it makes your heart soar? One should know better by now than to get their hopes up...

Starting this book felt like I had been living my life and all of a sudden was drugged and thrown into the Hunger Games with no explanation. Seeing all these people around me and trying to figure out, WHO ARE YOU AND WHY DO I CARE?!?

I pushed through because it wasn't that long. But the plot was too dull. I felt like I kept stopping. This Revolution of Jack Frost first enticed me because I love Jack Frost, I love Morozko and I thought this would be a cool retelling. it was none of that. This concept was too similar to The Maze Runner for me to even begin to enjoy it. Think of a weather controlled Maze Runner and that's the book.

A futuristic, dystopian retelling of Jack Frost with more than a hint of the Maze Runner, this was a difficult one to pin down. The idea behind the book was good, but it took far too long for it to be revealed to the reader, meaning the first half of the book made little sense, and didn't really engage me. I didn't mind at all the idea of an enclosed world where the weather was controlled as an experiment but I felt it should have been made clearer much earlier in the book. I also stru

The Revolution of Jack Frost is a science fiction dystopian novel about a group of people living in an environment with really bizarre seasonal variations. The story centers around Jack and Genesis, a couple living in this world that uncovers secrets about this world. Survival is a common theme throughout this book.

I knew what was coming at the ending but I was still broken.

The Revolution of Jack Frost is one of the best retelling I have read !! Although I was kinda lost in the beginning, I stuck through it and grew to love the adventure. Once I got to the fourth or fifth chapter, I got a grasp of what was going on and I could clearly imagine the story.

With Jack Frost being one of my favourite characters, I was excited about reading this book. Filled with love, suspicion, and survival, K.M.Robinson brings

I've read stories based on snow globes, and the people in them, as picture books, and some how hoped this was an grown up version of the same. I mean, really, Jack Frost. Well, it wasn't.

This book made no sense at all.
I was ecstatic to receive an ARC because I love story retelling and Jack Frost is one of my favorite stories. It's like it's trying to hard to fit into the Hunger Games and Maze Runner world. I expected more Jack Frost more folklore and less Maze Runner. All that aside the relationships were lacking. I didn't feel the slightest thing for any character. I don't even remember their n

When writing a story about a well known figure, the stakes are set quite high.
Unfortunately, this novel on Jack Frost did not do so well. Whether it’s from the lack of flow in the writing, or the lack of an engaging storyline (the romance seemed quite childish as well), the only interesting section was finding out more about Jack. The way Jack Frost came about in the storyline didn’t really fit the perceptions of Jack Frost within today’s culture and it also felt like it was tacked on at the end

I wish I had have enjoyed this as the premise sounded amazing.

Alas the narrative was lacklustre and moved extremely slowly, at points I skipped whole chapters and still managed to be on top of the story.

I found myself failing to connect with any character involved. I also found that main love interest between Genesis and Jack felt very Stockholm Syndrome-esque for the majority of the novel.

While the novel had great potential, I felt it completely missed the mark
