Book Review – The Wolves of Winter

The Wolves of Winter: A NovelThe Wolves of Winter: A Novel by Tyrell Johnson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not sure if this is YA or not but whatever genre you place it in, The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson is just a rip-roaring fun yarn.

I absolutely loved the setup and backstory for this one. A flu pandemic that swept the globe amidst war and brought about a snowy apocalypse seems almost like it could be ripped from the headlines these days. The author did a fantastic job establishing an oppressive theme throughout and painted frigid pictures with words. Fantastic!

The characters were also well drawn and realistic. As a heroine, Lynn is every bit as intriguing as Katniss Everdeen. I was kept on the edge of my seat turning the pages as her story came to fruition. The hint of romance at the end of the world between her and Jax was also done in understated way so as not to interfere with the plot.

The only potential drawback is the foray into “superhuman” territory that may throw some readers out of their comfort zone. As a comic junkie though, it was right up my alley!

5 stars.
