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

In the remote wilds of a ravaged land, Elka has been raised by a man who isn't her father. Since finding her wandering in the woods when she was seven, he has taught her how to hunt, shoot, set snares and start fires--everything she needs to survive. All she knows of the world outside is gleaned from whispers of a cataclysmic event that turned the clock back on civilization by a hundred and fifty years and reduced governments and technology to shambles, leaving men at the mercy of the elements--and each other.

Everything changes when Elka learns that the man she has been calling father is harboring a terrible secret. Armed with nothing but her knife and her wiles, she decides to escape his clutches and sets out on a long journey to the frozen north in the hope of finding her long-lost parents.

But as the trail of blood and bodies grows in her path, Elka realizes that daddy won't be letting his little girl go without a fight. If she's going to survive, she'll have to turn and confront not just him, but the truth about what he's turned her into.

    Whoa I will tell you all the truth I was kind of iffy with this book when I first started reading it, because I didn't know what I was getting into reading this great book. Now I really didn't like the main character Elka from the beginning but she grow on me when I started to read more about her. This book to me is about salvation, redemption and love in friendship. I just love reading about Elka and Penelope friendship is was pure raw love of friendship the both of them were fierce, strong, loyal and very protective with each other. The both of them stick out there necks for each other and it was an horrible incident on how they become close friends. Penny and Elka went through a lot of terrible things through this book and with that the both of them kept dark secrets from each other fearing that one of them would be left behind to fend for themselves or even worst be left alone forever. Reading the plot was my favorite part of the wolf road because it was full of suspense, dread and thriller. And I absolutely love reading the mind of Elka. I just love reading about her memories especially her lock up memories they she tryed so hard to suppress but little by little her lock up memories were unlocked when she become more human. I tell you I was not prepared to read all those locked memories she had with Trapper aka Kreagar Hallet who she really cared about like a dad. But when she finally remember all her memories including the lock memories she finally realized who Trapper really was, and she also realize what Trapper was trying to say to her when he was throwing all those murders he did in her face all the time when he was tracking Elka down. But I am going to leave it off here because I don't want to get too spoiler and I don't want to say way was the reason for Trapper throwing all those murders to Elka face because you have to read The Wolf Road to find out. All in all I really did love and enjoy The Wolf Road which actually caught me by surprise that I thoroughly loved and enjoy it so much!

  1. I'd not heard of this book! Hey, it published on my birthday. :D I'm glad you loved this book so much! Usually I'm not a fan of books that involve amnesia/memory loss, but it's great when it's written well. A satisfying standalone is the best kind of book!

    Wonderful review, Katiria. =)

  2. You review really surprised me. I read this book earlier this year and felt that the twist was incredibly shocking. I had also eaten a big lunch RIGHT before it, which was not a good idea AT ALL. Anyway, based on your ideas of this one book, we should be friends.
