Publisher's Summary

True Grit meets The Road in this postapocalyptic psychological thriller - narrated by a young girl who has just learned that her adoptive father may be a serial killer and that she may be his next victim.

Everything Elka knows of the world she learned from the man she calls Father, the solitary hunter who took her under his wing when she was just seven years old. He has taught her how to shoot, track, set snares, and start fires - all the skills she needs to survive in a frozen, lawless land where civilization has been destroyed and men are at the mercy of the elements and each other. But the man Elka thought she knew so well is harboring a terrible secret. He's a killer. A monster. And now that Elka knows the truth, she, too, is in danger.

Armed with nothing but her knife and the survival skills he's taught her, Elka makes her escape and sets out on a journey to the frozen North in the hope of finding her long-lost parents. But judging by the trail of blood and bodies dogging her footsteps, Daddy won't be letting his little girl go without a fight. If Elka's going to survive, she'll have to turn and confront not just him but the truth about what he's turned her into.

The Wolf Road is an intimate cat-and-mouse tale of justice and revenge played out against a vast, unforgiving landscape - told by an unforgettable, tough-as-nails young heroine whose struggle to escape the terrors of her past and rejoin humanity are at once horrifying and heartbreaking.

    Story
    "Almost too bloody"

    I don't attend horror movies. This is an astonishingly beautifully crafted adventure tale, without pulp fiction cliche.The folk language, the deep thoughtfulness about the nature of trauma, love, forgiveness and humanity are carried in the masterful and flexible voices of the solo narrator. Bearing the bloody horror, this time, brought me a deeper look into our common humanity. The only feature of this story which allows classification with "science fiction" is the post-apocalyptic time setting. Maybe the author had only that to give her the emotional distance to bear the scenes and insights she has brought us.

    Story
    "Elka girl..."

    This book is all about impressionism of a child's mind and how, under the wrong guidance, that control could turn said child in to a monster if not saved in time. It is also a peak in to how the mind makes the bad not so bad and the horrific in to blank spots in time as if it were a photo in a picture book that had been colored in with a magic marker.

    Story
    "Takes a Bite And Won't Let Go"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wolf Road the most enjoyable?

    I just felt drawn into the Elka's story. Her use of language was particularly interesting as was her journey in this post-apocalyptic world.


    What other book might you compare The Wolf Road to and why?

    I kinda think it's in a class by itself. It has classic tropes in modern YA fiction, but the society isn't the focus. It's the girl. She lives in this world, and this is all she's known. She deals.


    Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favorite?

    She was just terrific. She uses the slightest accent and Lewis's language, as written, would be a challenge for a lesser actor, but McFadden pulls it off seamless. I really felt for Elka.

    "Ocean of a book, dark and deep"

    Wonderful performance! The odd diction and narrative style can take a little getting used to, but it ends in a wonderful character study.

    "A thriller worthwhile reading page by page"

    I definitely recommend reading this if you like westerns and thrillers. This book gets better and better with every page. Elka and her friend Penelope, hero and villain in one person show us how blurry the lines between good and evil can be. Enjoy!
