Cinder meets The Walking Dead in a chilling futuristic fairy tale that will reboot everything you thought about family, love, and what it means to be human.16-year-old Frost understands why she's spent her entire life in an abandoned apartment building. The ruined streets below are hunting grounds for rogue robots and Eaters. She understands why she's never met a human besides her father. She even understands why he forbids her to look for medicine for her dying pet. But the thing is, it's not her real father giving the orders . . . It's his memories. Before he died, Frost's father uploaded his consciousness into their robot servant. But the technology malfunctioned, and now her father fades in and out. So when Frost learns that there might be medicine on the other side of the ravaged city, she embarks on a dangerous journey to save the only living creature she loves.With only a robot as a companion, Frost must face terrors of all sorts, from outrunning the vicious Eaters. . .to talking to the first boy she's ever set eyes on. But can a girl who's only seen the world through books and dusty windows survive on her own?

Booklist Review: "Frost, 16, is stepping out literally. With her robot companion, Bunt, she's leaving the relative safety of the apartment she's lived inside all her life to go in search of people who can save her dying pet. Frost tamed Romes (a canine-like beast called a broot) long ago, and he's her only living companion since her mother died and her father had to bury his consciousness within Bunt, emerging occasionally to offer advice and comfort. Kozlowsky's dystopian future includes flesh-eating zombies called Eaters, psychotic dictators, and a firm belief that, despite the aforesaid ills, people remain good at heart. The author poses interesting philosophical questions. Can a robot feel emotion? Can loyalty be a programmed response? Are humans capable of real change, or will we always opt for the easy and safe way out? Those who enjoy gore will appreciate the bloodbaths, while the swift pace and plentiful chapter hooks should keep everyone turning pages. A comfortably predictable romance wraps up all the elements necessary for a potentially popular new series.--Carton, Debbie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sixteen-year-old Frost has never left the building where she lives with Bunt, a robot who carries the consciousness of her dead father, and Romes, her pet broot (a fantastical creature). When Romes falls ill, Frost must leave her haven to save him. Bunt warns Frost about the danger, but Frost is determined, so they set off into the ruined world outside, which is filled with zombielike, cannibalistic Eaters. Eventually, they meet a man named Barron and his teenage son, Flynn, but a betrayal delivers Frost and Bunt into the hands of the cruel and murderous Good John Lord, who has built a society built on exploitation and slavery and is eager to get his hands on Bunt. Kozlowsky (The Dyerville Tales) has built a grim and brutal world that's in shambles after a robot uprising, and John Lord is a thoroughly creepy villain. Fast-paced and frequently violent, this suspenseful SF tale with a resilient, goodhearted heroine raises thought-provoking questions about what it means to be human and the nature of love and loyalty.
