About the book:
Meg Long’s Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves is a captivating debut about survival, found family, and the bond between a girl and a wolf that delivers a fresh twist on classic survival stories and frontier myths.
On a frozen wasteland of a planet, a girl is on the run with a wolf who is born to be a killer but bound to be her guide. As they fight to escape ice goblins, giant bears, and a ruthless leader intent on trapping them both, one question drives them relentlessly forward: where do you turn when there is nowhere to hide?
Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long is a young adult science fiction fantasy novel. This story is one of survival on a frozen planet making it a perfect story in the winter and is a standalone read which of course features wolves.
Sena is seventeen and does whatever she can to survive on her frozen planet since the loss of her mothers who were racers. Sena vows never to become involved in the race but those around her think it’s in her blood. Sena gets roped into helping with the vonenwolves who are used in the race and becomes especially close with one, Iska.
Brrrr! I’m still warming up from my adventure into the world of Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long. When beginning this story it reminded me of Star Wars and the land of Hoth with all the ice and storms throwing in a dog sled type of race like we would find in Alaska. The author did a good job creating this world and bringing it to life and although it felt a bit slow in the beginning for my taste I still enjoyed the characters and story and found it certainly did pick up the pacing and became an adventure of it’s own.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
