~ Book Synopsis ~
“…Frosty The Snowman was a jolly happy soul…” unless his once mortal form was infected with an unknown pathogen that’s turned him into a biting machine.Then Frosty doesn’t get a corncob pipe and a button nose…he gets two in the head.
Seeking a safe haven from the impending danger of the infected, Governor Steve Landis commandeers a rural peninsula at the top of his state to enact a grandiose plan outlined in the survival guide passed down to him by his great uncle.
People of the Bay Peninsula latch onto the ideals of their trusted official, desperate for sanctuary. But not Terry Riley. This hardened conspiracy theorist had packed up and fled to the north woods to join his son, who, like him does not trust the eager governor. In agreement on the uncertainty of the days to come, they journey to the family cabin to wait out the end of the world.
Try to avoid hypothermia as you plow through this bone-chilling blizzard of flesh tearing chaos, because snow isn’t the only thing accumulating on Christmas Eve in this neck of the woods.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
I enjoy zombie books and apocalypse books even though it seems that there are tons of them out there. I tend to like the different zombie & apocalypse books. You know the atypical ones that have a different scenario and the zombies are different. Accumulation definitely falls into that category. It isn’t the normal zombie story. The end of the world scenario happens differently and most people don’t even know what is happening. The zombies are different in that they are kind of a hybrid type of zombie. The way that the “virus” is spread is different as well. You definitely don’t know what to expect in this book.
I enjoyed the story and the differences that the author had in it. It was definitely not boring and I was pretty much glued to the story. There are a lot of characters in this book and sometimes it’s a little difficult to remember who each person is but it doesn’t detract from the story at all. It was a fairly quick read and was entertaining. I give Accumulation 4 books.

~ About the Author ~
G. Nykanen was born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This small, rural land mass seems to cultivate a wide variety of colorful characters who provide a plethora of inspiration. The Point, Nykanen’s first novel, is filled with nuances of these local characters and the landscapes one might find in the north woods.
Well traveled thanks to her husband’s government career, she has lived in Europe and many of our United States over the last twenty years. She has recently returned home, moving back to her beloved Upper Peninsula where she resides with her husband and three children.
With The Point now completed, she will continue working on her next novel, Accumulation, along with continuing to develop other stories in the works.
