It’s been 297 days since David died – and came back.
He may have survived the avalanche, but the aftermath has been far worse. His wife moved out, taking his son with her, and a devastated David hasn’t left his house since, terrified of the mysterious new power that followed him home from the ill-fated expedition.
After months in seclusion, David’s ready for a fresh start, and ventures out, determined to keep his power in check. But David’s power isn’t the one he needs to worry about.
Warm Up on GoodreadsWarm Up is free to read on Tor.com or .99 on Amazon.
This is actually the first I’ve read by Victoria Schwab and I really enjoyed her writing style so I know it won’t be the last.
Warm Up is a very short glimpse into the world that the author has created for her upcoming book, Vicious. It kept my attention and left me very curious where the story will head next. I have a feeling that David will not be a part of it. I’m guessing here but I’m thinking that Vicious will partially be about people like David (maybe?) which would be a good thing because I want to know more about him, his power, and the why’s and how’s of that power.
Just a side note: I love the cover for Warm Up! It's perfect for the story.
