Content Warnings

Cold Morning is certainly violent. Characters die, discuss adult matters, and get into all sorts of trouble. Coercion and its consequences are consistent themes, both shown and discussed. Descriptions of violence are less graphic than the Illiad (though yeesh, have you read that recently?) and more graphic than Harry Potter. Somewhere around Lovecraft, with less racism. Descriptions of sex aren’t off the table. Bodies of various kinds and shapes are described without clothes, though the hairy details are usually left to the imagination of the audience. Swearing occurs, but is not part of the primary vocabulary.

Personally, I would be comfortable reading this story to a teen, but it is definitely not for children.
