Lynn, and her remaining family members escape to the Yukon, form a small settlement, hunting and fishing to survive.As Lynn thinks back in time, "And really it didn't matter anymore --the lines we drew for ourselves, the differences we creat...

    Thanks to Simon and Schuster Canada, the author and NetGalley for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest review. “The Wolves of Winter” by Tyrell Johnson is a post-apocalyptic novel, where a young woman has the capacity to save the world. But don’t base whether you read it or not on that statement alone. Comparisons have been made to “Hunger Games” (Suzanne Collins) and this is accurate, however “Wolve...

    Tyrell Johnson’s The Wolves of Winter starts out as a reasonably well-written, if undistinguished, post-apocalyptic tale – a sort of YA-ish version of Cormac Mcarthy’s The Road (the “ish” owing to the fact that the protagonist, Lynn, is a handful of years older than the usual YA heroine). It quickly turns into a reasonably well-written, undistinguished, YA-ish post-apocalyptic tale crossbred with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a development ...

    Trigger Warning: (view spoiler)[ Sexual Assault (hide spoiler)]Full Review: Thank you so much to NetGalley and Schribner for allowing me to read and review this lovely literary debut by Tyrell Johnson. I really loved the author’s prose. I found this book very similar to an old Jack London novel. I'm not sure I would really compare it to "The Hunger Games." Very slow-paced for the first half, gorgeous descriptions of the cold and survival in an ...

    This post apocalyptic fiction has a definite YA vibe but offers more than enough to keep a reader of any age entertained. It follows the story of Lynn McBride, living in the wilderness of the Yukon with her family, isolated and wary after war and disease brought the world to its knees some years ago. She is what makes the book, the kind of vibrant voice that demands attention, such as we've seen in more and more young female characters over the l...

    Read this FULL review along with others on my blog at: shesgoingbookcrazy.comI received this copy from the publisher via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.Content Warning! Two scenes of sexual assault (one full rape) under-aged drinking, and lots of profanity. Set in future, the post-world war world is decimated. Not only have nuclear weapons wiped entire countries out, the yellow flu hit the remaining population and took out almost all...

    In a post flu epidemic world, Lynn and her family live off the land in the Canadian Yukon. I enjoyed the all of the characters. They each brought something different to the table to help their family survive. Lynn is a strong protagonist and, although, the story line was a little predictable I still enjoyed it.

    In brief - Simple really - just a plain damn good read. Lynn is an excellent character, the setting is very good indeed and the story is well told. I really would love to read another by this author. 4.5/5 but let's not be picky - I'll call it 5.This is Lynn's story. She is currently living in the Canadian Yukon with her brother and her mother. There are just two other people in their immediate community. They are there because the world has been...
