Publisher's Summary

A captivating tale of humanity pushed beyond its breaking point, of family and bonds of love forged when everything is lost, and of a heroic young woman who crosses a frozen landscape to find her destiny, this debut novel is in a postapocalyptic tradition that spans The Hunger Games and Station Eleven but blazes its own distinctive path.

Forget the old days. Forget summer. Forget warmth. Forget anything that doesn't help you survive in the endless white wilderness beyond the edges of a fallen world.

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

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 brings with him dark secrets of the past and sets in motion a chain of events that will call Lynn to a role she never imagined.

Simultaneously a heartbreakingly sympathetic portrait of a young woman searching for the answer of who she is meant to be and a frightening vision of a merciless new world in which desperation rules, The Wolves of Winter is enveloping, propulsive, and poignant.

Good book! Wish there was more!

Better than a lot of the post apocalyptic reads out there. Much better actually! This is not your "prepper" style read so if your looking for the run of the mill, I'm prepared for anything, prepped style read you should move on. I was pleasantly surprised although i think there could have been a bit more to it and it seemed to die off a little towards the end. Nonetheless it is still better than several books out recently in this genre. I have to assume there is more coming or possibly more already out (I haven't checked yet) continuing this story. Matter of fact I'm gonna go look right now for. Oil two, three, etc...

Beautifully written and compelling

Unlike so many novels in general, and apocalypse novels in particular, The Wolves of Winter is beautifully written. The story unfolds effortlessly. The author does not force anything. The characters are well developed but not exhaustively examined. It is difficult to put this book down. The action, like the rest of the story, occurs naturally. I really loved this read and look forward to more books by this author. Highly recommended.

Great "End of the World" survivor story.

I enjoyed The Wolves of Winter very much. I'm a big fan of end of the world novels, and this one hit the mark. The story is told in present time by a young woman, with memories shared of how the end of the world started and how one family came to be living in the wilderness. I enjoyed the characters and the story was very different. The narrator did an excellent job with all the different characters.

Good story

I enjoyed this book. It kept my interest from the early pages. The story was good, maybe a little predictable in a few spots but definitely worth the read.

"The wolves of winter" is one of my new favorite books!

This is my first book by Tyrell and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The story is very believable and I really enjoyed the characters. They were all unique and I like the way all their relationships flow together so easily. The twists and turns sort of sneak up on you and I like that. Open till the very end of the story you don't know where it's going to happen. Some people said they could predict the story. But I disagree, I thought there were many twists and turns that we're not predictable. And the reader, Jayme, nailed it! I can't believe all the characters she played! She gave each character they are very own quality, personality and tone that I really felt there were different readers playing each part. Overall I give this book give five stars in every category and I would recommend this book to everyone whether they like thrillers or mysteries or every other genre.
