Improbable as much of the premise seems, Marsden's slow, teasing exposition will very likely lure readers further into the story to keep pace with the unstoppable Winter.

One it gives us new Superman Henry Cavill in his first major leading role and two it’s the new film from Tarsem Singh who proved all his critics wrong with his last film The Fall which was gorgeous to look at as well as having an interesting and moving plot at its core.

This was definitely a book that teenage readers would relish because they are able to closely relate to the characters, but I wouldn’t restrict Winter Song for any age group to enjoy.
