Elle A. Rose’s new book began life as a short story for a Halloween anthology published by her writing group. Having developed the story into a full length novel, Elle has now produced a full-length YA fantasy novel for her readers to enjoy. Frozen follows teenager Verick Cedar, who survives in a world ravaged by alien species the Xecerptavode. With the land ravaged, the water drained and all comforts a thing of the past, the humans are forced to venture out on Halloween, when the Xecerptavode are briefly frozen. Sixteen year old Verick must go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the first time, navigating the unforgiving environment and gathering supplies for his family in his one brief window of opportunity.

Elle A. Rose deftly explores reactions to deprivation, disaster, and grief, and in doing so raises questions about the nature of humanity. As the fight for survival places ever-increasing pressure on Verick’s friends and family, ripples of anger and betrayal threaten to immobilise their society for good. Frozen will appeal to adult and young adult readers of sci-fi and fantasy, and Verick’s fear, desperation and, ultimately, courage and compassion will grip readers to the final pages.

It is the future and the human race has been virtually annihilated. Xerceptavodes, alien beings, have taken over the earth, leaving those humans remaining little with which to subsist. But a bizarre phenomenon causes all the Xerceptavodes to be frozen once a year on All Hallows Eve, allowing humans to scavenge for food and other provisions to aid in their survival. Verick, a sixteen year old boy, has been training for the upcoming Halloween mission. He is ready and willing to face the inherent dangers of scavenging on this critical night when those in the spirit world will try to snuff out anyone found foraging. Verick's success is critical in order to help provide for his family's needs for the coming year. Author Elle A. Rose has created a fantastically original story in which young Verick comes of age. When Verick turns seventeen he must choose a mate who he will then marry on his eighteenth birthday. With his birthday just months away, the importance of choosing a wife weighs heavily on his mind. This post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel is a wildly imaginative and intriguing page-turner.
