There is a lot of good information in here, insights on economics, agriculture, homesteading and preparedness, group dynamics, human nature, geopolitics, military weaponry....etc.
The author has conducted an incredible amount of research on an array of topics and interwoven it all into a stunningly relevant and believable geopolitical thriller. If you read this book and do not walk away a having learned something, a little bit richer in worthwhile knowledge, then you probably were not paying attention.
I generally do not read novels, but this one was recommended to me. I was happy that I took the time to read it. It actually had me taking out my pen and circling quotes, making margin notes and planning to research some of the many topics touched upon by the author. It is what I would expect if you put G Edward Griffin, Joel Skousen and the writers of Backwoods Home Magazine (or perhaps Mother Earth News) into a room and had them write a geopolitical thriller.

I enjoyed this book immensely, and congratulate the author on this exceptional effort.
This book is a keeper. Independently published, well-written, and good quality. A very worthwhile read and I look forward to a sequel.

Format: Paperback
Winter Kill is a story of a man's realization that North American society is doomed to collapse and that he must start planning now to save his family from whatever is coming. The book starts off quick and hard with the news that Canada is under nuclear attack. Panic starts and people are running for their lives, except for Casey Callaghan who was ready. The book jumps back in time to explain how Casey understood what might be coming and how he planned to save his family by wisely investing in gold stock and using the proceeds to build a fortress on Vancouver Island. The story is very slow at this point as the author goes into pains-taking detail describing how each decision was made in regards to designing and constructing the fortress. If you are interested in building your own survival shelter, there are a lot of great ideas here. But, if you are interested in why the war started, and how the rest of the world is fairing, you may want to skip ahead a bit; (the author even suggests this in the foreword). The author's ideas on how the world could go down this road are intelligent, plausible, and scary. Once the action did start, I did not willing put down the book until I had finished. The ending is a bit of science fiction, but still plausible and certainly enjoyable - even the nasty twist at the very end that temporarily caused me to think "no! he didn't do that to them!" (You'll have to read it). I enjoyed reading this book, mostly because the characters and places were familiar to me and I wanted to see how they would survive. Also, there are many subplots in the book that I hope the author will write more on as I need to know how they will live and fight in their post-apocalyptic worlds. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the fall of the western world.

Format: Paperback
I enjoy techno-thrillers and have to say that I was quite surprised to find one that was written by a Canadian author in a Canadian setting.

I bought the E-Book version and read it twice for the same reason that I read any novel by Tom Clancy twice.. first for storyline which was epic to say the least and second for the technical aspects. The author's extensive research of subject matter and attention to detail only complement the immersive storyline which is pleasantly surprising coming from a new author. Like a painter that starts with a complex environment first, Gene Skellig starts slow and technical with a climactic build-up that will leave any Ludlum or Clancy fan with that ever-familiar "Wow" experience.

That is precisely what "Winter Kill" is... a "Wow" experience. The only negative aspect of this chronicle that I can think of is perhaps that it is very genre-specific and if you don't read Ludlum, Le Carre, Clancy or Fleming then perhaps this may not be for you but Gene Skellig definitely has a lot of potential and I, personally, will be waiting for his next release.

Format: Paperback
I initially saw this book at a local book store while I was passing through Winnipeg. Taking the title down I eventually purchased this book online.

I was surprised that there has been no reviews made on this book except for one on amazon.com. Although the book started slow with too much scientific dialogue and with the introduction of too many characters the author eventually moves on with the plot.
Although this scenario was often discussed in the 1950s and 60s, it is a modern fresh look at the idea of a nuclear winter setting in after a full scale nuclear war. It is also fascinating to see this novel based on Canadian soil, vice a US centric view. However this Canadian setting will probably hurt sales. But for someone familiar with Canadian locations in particular the West Coast it provides a great read. The book is well researched with many modern scientific ideas and facts being introduced to provide solutions should a Nuclear Armageddon indeed occur. The plot continues to move on with one exciting twist after the other.

Overall a "Winter Kill" provided a revised look at Nuclear Winter and its effects on a global scale. For the price its being sold at it is definitely recommended.
