Iceapelago 2091 by Peter Brennan is a dystopian fiction novel that gives a glimpse into the future if we aren’t careful about the climate and we don't respect Earth. Ireland was almost destroyed by tsunamis when the Gulf Stream changed and divided it into 30 different islands. While each of the islands is governed by a different leader dubbed Six, all of them take cues and answer to the Commander in Dundrum Center. Jane Madden is an aide to the Commander and right in the thick of things. Things are going as well as they can when tragedy comes in the form of an early Winter Day. From there on, Jane scrambles to get help and support for all the islands before it is too late. However, things get even more complicated when a group tries to take over one island at a time and nature decides to strike back. Can the Irish Iceapelago survive?
Author Peter Brennan has a way of making you feel the desperation of the scenario. He commands readers' attention with his carefully composed sentences and word choice to make them realize the gravity of the situation. The narrative is terrifyingly realistic, and the imagery created is enough to make me fear the future. The descriptive polar bear attacks, Jane’s desperation to get help to everyone, and the simple struggle of people to survive are masterfully depicted. There is drama, suspense, and the thrill of racing against nature that keeps readers hooked. The pace is fast, the development arc of the story is extraordinary, and the overall atmosphere complements the story incredibly well. Author Peter Brennan is a magician with words!
