The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson

4 Star

Forget the old days. Forget summer. Forget warmth. Forget anything that doesn’t help you survive.

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

But her fragile existence is about to be shattered. Shadows of the world before have found her tiny community—most prominently in the enigmatic figure of Jax, who sets in motion a chain of events that will force Lynn to fulfill a destiny she never imagined.

Perhaps because of the current state of the world, I find myself drawn more and more to realistic dystopian novels. Maybe because I can actually see some crazy plague or war wiping out most of humanity, but maybe also because the writing of these types of tales in the past few years has been much more realistic and approachable than they used to be.

The story of Lynn, who is a late teen or young adult, as somewhat heartbreaking. She was ripped from a normal life just when hers was about to begin. Having suffered the loss of so much, it was difficult to imagine being in her place. Having to survive and struggle on a daily basis in order to just find food and have shelter.

A motley assortment of survivors comprised of her entire world, which seemed to be stuck in an eternal winter, with no end in sight. The planet was suffering and those who had survived the virus did not seem to have much to look forward to. Enter Jax, another survivor, and the world shifts a bit. Learning about another person's past and hopes for the future changes what Lynn thinks in an undeniable way.

Part thriller, part love story and definitely captivating, this book is a must read for anyone who fears what may come next.
