The Wolves of Winter

WOW! This book was so good. I started it Saturday morning, got up at 4 am Sunday because I had to know what was next. I just finished it and I want to start it all over again. It’s not a book I thought I’d like, its post apocalyptic there is hunting and that makes me sad. I know though sadly it is about survival and sometimes we do things we don’t usually do to survive. In The Wolves of Winter the world has changed first their was the war, then there was the flu. Scary stuff especially with all that is going on in present day times. 3 out 4 died from the flu and the world went cold, winter most of the time and what little seasons that came after all the snow melted were getting shorter. The McBrides have been surviving living a somewhat happy life in the Yukon valley far away from their home in Eagle Alaska, and all that changes when Wolf and Jax show up. Jax is on the run and Immunity is going to find him and they don’t care who they get rid of to get to him. I’m not going to tell you more because you HAVE to read this book. The main characters – Lynn, her family, Jax and Wolf are great I really liked them and was invested in their story. While I don’t see that there is a sequel I really hope there is. It did leave off were maybe just maybe there could be. Maybe it’s just my wishful thinking either way I will be reading anything Tyrell Johnson writes next!

About the Book: Forget the old days. Forget summer. Forget warmth. Forget anything that doesn’t help you survive in the endless white wilderness beyond the edges of a fallen world.

Lynn McBride has learned much since society collapsed in the face of nuclear war and the relentless spread of disease. As the memories of her old life continue to haunt, she’s forced to forge ahead in the snow-drifted Canadian Yukon, learning how to hunt and trap and slaughter.

Shadows of the world before have found her tiny community—most prominently in the enigmatic figure of Jax, who brings with him dark secrets of the past and sets in motion a chain of events that will call Lynn to a role she never imagined.

Simultaneously a heartbreaking sympathetic portrait of a young woman searching for the answer to who she is meant to be and a frightening vision of a merciless new world in which desperation rules, The Wolves of Winter is enveloping, propulsive, and poignant.
