Book Review: Snow Over Utopia

Title: Snow Over Utopia

Author: Rudolfo A. Serna



Snow Over Utopia is a genre bending short novel of apocalyptic fantasy, sci-fi psychedelia, and doom metal.

In an age of savage science powered by black-mass, and thrown away bio-matter leaked into an underground sea lit by the heart of the great tree, a girl named Eden loses her rare blue eyes. Escaping her fanatical and sadistic slave masters with her eyes in a jar, she runs away with a murderer named Miner. After fleeing for their lives deep within the forest, they are found by the Librarian and his daughter Delilah, and sheltered in their mountain-top sanctuary. But she cannot stop there. If Eden wants to restore her eyes, then she must go on through time and space in a necrotronic stream generated by the living computer program called Witch Mother.

While mutantoid priests in underground bunkers monitor transmissions from the great tree, Eden and Miner must face the horrors of the factories and the coliseum run by the Robot Queen in the city of Utopia. Can they make the ultimate sacrifice and complete their mission? Or will they fail in Snow Over Utopia?

My Review

5/5 Stars

Raw and emotional. This isn’t a story for the faint of heart.

In a post-apocalyptic world exists a girl named Eden who has lost her eyes. Not wanting to leave them behind, she takes them with her in a jar when she is led to escape by a murderer named Miner. Restoring her eyes is possible, but it will take faith and luck to meet a computer program known as Witch Mother. With things out to get them around every corner will Eden and Miner find a safe place to rest and live or will their fail their mission.

I always love a good mash of genres and this is one of those. It takes place in post-apocalyptic world yet we see dashes of science fiction, drama, suspense, and adventure. There was always so much going on, and the author has a way with painting emotional scenes in just about every chapter. I liked the easy friendship between Miner and Eden. In a book filled with chaos, their time together seemed to be the only peace.

I recommend this book for readers who love adventurous stories that aren’t afraid of crossing genre lines.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
