The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
Little description:ELKA BARELY REMEMBERS a time before she knew Trapper. She was just seven years old, wandering lost and hungry in the wilderness, when the solitary hunter took her in. In the years since then, he’s taught her how to survive in this desolate land where civilization has been destroyed and men are at the mercy of the elements and each other.
But the man Elka thought she knew has been harboring a terrible secret. He’s a killer. A monster. And now that Elka knows the truth, she may be his next victim.
Armed with nothing but her knife and the hard lessons Trapper’s drilled into her, Elka flees into the frozen north in search of her real parents. But judging by the trail of blood dogging her footsteps, she hasn’t left Trapper behind—and he won’t be letting his little girl go without a fight. If she’s going to survive, Elka will have to turn and confront not just him, but the truth about the dark road she’s been set on.
The Wolf Road is an intimate cat-and-mouse tale of revenge and redemption, played out against a vast, unforgiving landscape—told by an indomitable young heroine fighting to escape her past and rejoin humanity.
Genre: Thriller/ Post-Apocolyptic Fiction/ Survival in the Wilderness

My thoughts: 1 stars out of 5
This is the rare book review, filled with my negative opinion, thoughts and emotions. Surviving in the wilderness is my second favorite genre, after the time-travel.
Just want to begin with that this book was somewhat I thought it would be interesting, but after reading the blurb I thought was the book is about survival and should be good. But the more I divided in the book, the more I lost interest. The beginning was hooking, promising to be alright read… There is no problem with sentences, they seem to be alright. The way the girl Elka, the main character, her talk shows she knows nothing about the grammar. But the story line was disappointing for me… Expected something else… Was not a good read, and I lost interest in the middle of the book.
As disappointed I was, I decided not to post the review on Amazon and Goodreads, because I know there will be more people who would truly enjoy the story-line of this book.
