A strange blast in a small college town triggers a blizzard, which is followed by an infestation of ‘crabs,’ Curious at first, they soon turn deadly. College professor, Dominic Daniels, and a small group of survivors must decide whether to try and stick it out in their tenuous safe havens, or make a run for it and contend with the ‘monsters,’ who came with the snow.
They Came With the Snow by Christopher Coleman is a short horror story that stretches the limits of the imagination. Leaving much to the reader’s imagination, it is a shocking judgment of government overreach gone too far. A book that can, mercifully, be read in about half an hour, and one that you will long remember.

This is a short story, not a book. There were many good things about the story, but it always bugs me when someone leaves typos in their work. In this case it was the word “palate”, which is in your mouth, or a description of your taste in food. A construction “pallet” is the wooden platform used in transporting goods or in construction. As a professor, Mr. Coleman should know the difference. As far as the story is concerned, it was nice and imaginative, and the characters were believable. I won’t give story details because I don’t like spoilers. As long as you read it knowing not to expect a book length, I would recommend it as a nice read.

The story is slow to develop and the characters come off as plastic and non-believable. The author gives you the feeling that he's just trying to hurry and finish the book. That's what I did too. I'm glad it was free.

A very quick and entertaining read.
I chose it because the snowflakes were falling outside my window and this looked like the right thing to go with the weather and boy, was it ever good!
Snowy apocalypse with some creatures that reminded a bit of zombies. It wasn't overly gory and gruesome but there were a few bloody deaths.
.....and I totally loved the ending!

I received a copy of this book for my honest review of it. It starts out well, with good world building and a bit of suspence. You find out wha's happening bit by slow bit, but their aren't enough bits to get the full picture. This would be great, perhaps, as a first book in a series but not in a stand-alone book. I left off one star because the ending felt incomplete.

The snow seemed endless...falling, falling, falling... Two survivors taking refuge at the local college, know their time is running out. They must decide: stay, and starve or freeze to death, or brave the freakish winter weather....and what lies in wait within. Are there other survivors? Can they find a path to safety? Or has the world ended, and they are the only people left...?

Started off with a blast...Next came the snow...Then they came...Started watching first, just don't get to close...Is the government behind what's happening?..Definitely yes...Mr. Coleman wrote a good book with lots of suspense

I read this a few month ago, and being a Chris Coleman fan I was excited. The storyline was interesting and the characters were realistic and interesting. I wish this story was developed into a full novel so all of the questions I had would be answered. The story ended somewhat abruptly and on a weird angle but I'm not at all upset that I took the time to read it. Please read it as well!

I loved the clarity of writing - just enough words to convey the story line but not so many to distract. The only complaint that I have was the repetitive use of "snicker" - please - use a thesaurus - get some different words for what you are intending to convey. Would people in that situation really "snicker"?.
