Ukiah Oregon has run with the wolves - literally being raised by them until his teens - and only a few short years ago was discovered by a woman who was to become his mother. He now is dedicated to his family, to his partner Max and their PI partnership. He's a tracker, and a good one. More than that - there is no one who can match his tracking skills. After all, no one else can track identifying the DNA of the lost by touch alone, as Ukiah can. A serious case is referred to them. Ukiah and Max have to track a missing woman. Someone who it appears has gone completely mad, killing her friends / housemates and escaping into the woods. Ukiah identifies in her blood that she seems to have some kind of invasive virus. Using her blood he tracks her, finds her - and that's when the weirdness starts.
I enjoyed all the characters peopling the book, from Ukiah's unusual family structure to the woman he picks to love. Here is a strong, masculine male that actually seems to enjoy showing people that he loves them. The plot is carefully paced as befuddlement turns into excitement builds on danger and culminates into mega risk, ultimately making me wonder what really is out there.
The concept is unique and will grip you from the start. The opening concept of the book (a man raised by wolves) may not seem on the surface to be so different, but the treatment and development of the story definitely is. There are some interesting themes including what makes a family, and what it is to be human.Read more ›
Premise of the book is that there are aliens who trying to take over the earth. The protagonist (raised by wolves and now a PI) has unusual talents which involve being able to taste/sample DNA and this is the story of his own self discovery a to how he came about these strange talents.
