The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I kept hearing great things about this novel and wow ... the great reviews were right! This is such a good book! Pretty unlike anything I've read before and so fascinating!
The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world and the resulting world is very wild west-like. The story revolves around a woman who was raised by a man she encountered in the world who ultimately raised her as his own and taught her how to survive ... and survive well. When she finds out something about this man and decides to escape from him and try to find her own parents who she hasn't seen since she was a child. That decision begins a journey that is unpredictable and interesting. Dark and wild, this story is so fantastic. The cat and mouse game that begins between Elka and the man who raised her is such crazy journey. The entire story just grabbed me and didn't let go until the last moment. The momentum of the story combined with the details about the brutal world in which this book takes place just made this such a fantastic read! This is really a story of survival and redemption. One that is unputdownable - not a word but it's the best way to describe this book. I highly recommend this gritty novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat while also giving you so much to think about!
