Product description

Review

‘An intriguing tale of post apocalyptic survival … One of those books one picks up instead of turning on the television … Read this book for the characters and the tale of how they develop against a stark backdrop of survival in a crumbled world’ Robin Hobb

‘What a voice Elka has, marvellously sustained’ Rob Ewing, author of The Last of Us

‘Arresting … Lewis takes the reader on an odyssey that highlights the striking wilderness landscape and Elka's grit' Publishers Weekly

‘The Wolf Road is an extraordinary novel – dark and funny and full of wild energy. Elka is a brilliant creation – fierce and vulnerable at the same time. Her story and her voice pull you in from the first page and never let you go. Gripping and unforgettable’ Antonia Hodgson, author of The Devil in the Marshalsea

A really involving book - well written with a nice accent on the narrator.
Sits somewhere between a thriller, a horror and a coming-of-age book - set in beautifully described post-apocalyptic British Columbia.

A real page turner and crying out for a TV adaptation!

The Wolf Road – a dark tale that is beautifully written – makes for a great literary debut with a fantastic dystopian-mystery feel to it.

This is of those books that gives you a taste of the ending at the beginning, so immediately you want to read on, curious to know what happened, how did we get to this point?

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, after the “Big Damn Stupid” set everything back to zero. Trapper raised Elka for near on 10 years. He taught her everything she needed to know to survive in the wild, she thought of him as a father. When she finds out Trapper is wanted for multiple murders, life as she knows it crumbles, and she journeys into the wild to find her real parents. But Magistrate Lyon and Trapper are not far behind her and neither are the memories of her past. Secrets, lies, truth, memories – everything done in the dark will eventually come to light. This book is Elka’s story, told in her words.

“Trapper was my family even though I didn’t know a sure thing about him…

Trapper was the kind a’ family you choose for yourself, the kind that gets closer’n blood.

He was what I chose and I chose wrong.”

There’s something about this book that pulls at your heart strings, Lewis writes so beautifully, Elka becomes a real person, throughout this read you experience Elka’s emotions right along with her. I have a love for dark yet beautiful writing – it creates this need in me to read on; Lewis did that boundlessly in this book, I was gripped, emotionally attached to Elka so I needed to read on, I needed to know that she was going to be okay. This compelling feeling is one that, up until now, I had only experienced when reading a book by Kate Hamer, and one that I didn’t expect to feel when I picked up this book.

4.5 stars out of 5.

I was lucky enough to win a copy of the book courtesy of Goodreads Giveaways.

The Wolf Road is Elka's tale, told by Elka through a first person perspective in her own unique voice, that does take a few pages to get into but when you do and after you've gotten to know the character you realise the tone fits her perfectly. She takes you along with her, from the young girl relying on Trapper to help her survive through to her discovery of the truth and her subsequent journey to find her parents all the time traversing countless miles and landscapes. As the story progresses and Elka travels further along the Wolf Road confronting memories of her past and the horrors done by Kreager Hallet, the ramifications are slowly revealed and as events transpire we build to the inevitable reckoning and conclusion between Elka herself and Kreager.

Whilst the book itself takes place in a post apocalyptic time the actual world has reverted back to a setting that is very reminiscent of the frontier style western era, you have ranches, cattle, huts, small towns, wanted posters, a Sheriff turned Magistrate, deputies, a six shooter, horses, hangings, claims and mining/prospecting for gold which all adds up to an old West vibe. Not much is written about the world before, we find out what happened and what the event was called 'the Damn Stupid' followed a few years later by the 'Second Conflict' but mostly everything else takes a backseat and is only vaguely mentioned throughout.

I’ve read some good books, and some great books. The Wolf Road surpasses both of those descriptions. This isn’t just a book, it’s an experience. It had me listening to every word our lone narrator spoke about her isolated existence in the woods with her elusive guardian. I say listening, as when I was reading the most fascinating, well-written dialect wormed its way into my brain until her personality was firmly embedded. Not once did she lose the unique, feisty tom-boy character she had developed into every time I opened the cover.

Elka is our plucky young lady’s name and she had my undivided attention as she told her tale of survival against the odds. Having the strong voice needed to convey everything her story had to offer she takes the most challenging circumstances on the chin. Each time she unearths an appalling fact along the way she briefly reflects by applying her unique brand of wisdom to the situation.

An eerie sense of alarm radiates from page one where you realise that a run in with a wolf or a bear is nothing compared to the stench of the something sinister that’s been occurring. When the penny dropped I felt for her dearly, but was truly horrified at the same time. It was the last thing I was expecting to discover at the end of The Wolf Road!

Elka’s real troubles started when she was approached by a magistrate asking her if she recognised a face in a wanted poster, she said his name was Kreager. As the menacing lady started to explain there was a killer on the loose and it’s not moose they’ve been hunting, Elka realised just how dangerous the woods could be. She may not know anyone called Kreager, but imagine her horror as she recognised the man’s face – it was Trapper’s, the man she’d known as her daddy since she was seven years old.
