33 Degrees by Vincent Robert Annunziato is a world that you can really feel the bleakness. I usually don't like dystonia future books but this one was different and it hooked me right away. Javin is orphaned at an early age but despite the suffering he endures as he grows up, he uses his brain, skill, and planning and just doesn't go crazy. He also keeps some compassion in him. There are great characters in here that make the book have spark. Keeps it from becoming too bleak. It adds hope and love. It is a story about a war against the North and South again but for it is the story of survival. It had me all the way through! ( )

33 Degrees tells the story of a divided nation. The climate has become too cold for mankind to live on the surface. Those living in the north of the country attempt to retreat to the south, who have built a wall to keep the northerners out. A war ensues and the north use a weapon known as The Pulse, that they believe will end the war, but will shut down all electricity. Northerners become enslaved by the Southerners, who are now searching for this season to ensure their continued supremacy.

This is where we meet Javin, the story's protagonist. His parents left him to live with "The Undergrounds". This fact, along with his plight of being slave labor for the Southerners leaves him bitter and angry. Along the way, he befriends, and ultimately falls in love. The author is very effective at conveying both his anger and his affection. Javin's emotions serve as the most powerful portion of the book.

The story starts off a little slow but is overall good. The characters are well developed and likeable. It is, however, somewhat predictable and does not contain much in the way of twists. One complaint I have is that there always to be something of a supernatural element associated with some of the characters. It is not overdone, so it would be a nice addition to the story, except that it is never explained. What is this ability that they individuals possess, and his did it come about? There are no answers to this.

In all, a well written, emotionally charged story worth reading. ( )
