"A captivating tale of humanity pushed beyond its breaking point, of family and bonds of love forged when everything is lost, and of a heroic young woman who crosses a frozen landscape to find her destiny. This debut novel is written in a post-apocalyptic tradition that spans The Hunger Games and Station Eleven but blazes its own distinctive path. 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 heartbreakingly 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"--… (mere)

I look forward to continuing this series ( )

4.5 / 5

This book was a strange journey. I looked forward to reading it, then wondered what all the fuss was about, and then couldn’t put it down. Overall an enjoyable read, if somewhat discomforting in the current coronavirus crisis. Acts of terror, war, pandemic - the author uses the big three to get to a world where survival is the name of the game. Add to that scientists 'gone bad' (one of my favourite topics ever since my days in science) and the world he’s created is sadly believable. However, I didn't warm to any of the characters until the end which took some edge off the story. While brave, none were especially likeable in the early chapters but they become more so as the story went on. ( )

A well written debut novel about surviving a nucelar war and a flu pandemic in a winter climate of the Yukon. The heroine is Lynn McBride who longs for the simpler times of living in Alaska. Now like others after the destruction of most cities. Everything is fine until one day Lynn brings home a man who calls himself Jax who is different from all other men. When a group of men from Immunity arrive looking for Jax, Lynn's life and that of her family not be the same. . ( )

Lyn Mctell is in the Canadian wilderness following a fort of nuclear war, times are hard and it is struggle to survive especially as there is a disease spreading throughout the remaining population. Out of the blue a rider appears near the camp called Jax. She becomes intrigued by this new face and introduces him to her family, he seems very unlike anyone else she has met, could he be the link so saving not just themselves but the wider world?

So what were the standout parts? Well, the descriptions of the bleak environment really were stunningly written and I am always a sucker for an apocalyptic book.

Not really sure what I thought of this book, and bordered on 3 or 4 stars. It flowed well, had an interesting story and the plot kept me entertained. However it seemed a bit young adult at times and there were no real surprises, you could see the 'twists' far in advance.

If there is a second novel I think I would pick it up. ( )
